Pinterest Easter crafts

Here are a few things I made for our church's Easter Egg hunt:

I took a basket and filled it with Easter basket grass, made a cross out of eggs made out of paint chip samples, and then printed Real Easter Bunnies  and put them on Popsicle sticks.  The kids love them.

Here is the Real Easter Bunny Printable up close

Here is a banner I made from a free printable found here but I added a paint chip egg in between each bunny.  I also put "He Lives" but you can't really see it in the pic.

I saw this printable to do with Jelly Beans: Colors of Faith Jelly Beans

Last year Easter pics

As I was posting this year's pictures, I couldn't help but notice last year's pictures.  I cannot believe how much Lucas has grown much less baby Isaac.

The Easter Bunny left Mommy a gift, too!

Nothing like a chocolate bunny for Easter breakfast!

Good Friday

Chad texted me Friday afternoon and said he was coming home in 5 minutes and to get the kids ready.  He said he was taking us somewhere for a surprise, don't ask questions and just jump in.  We hopped in the car and drove to Cook's United Methodist Church and saw this.

I believe a group of men decided to take turns at each cross for an hour and rotate off.   I am so glad Chad saw this earlier and decided to take the kids and me to see it. Totally the best Good Friday I've ever had.  I had chills the whole time.  There was a lady reading the story from the bible and it was so special and humbling.  I watched Passion of the Christ later that night for the second time.  I had seen the movie in the theater and thought I'd could never watch that again,  but I think I need to be reminded of just how much Christ suffered and gave up for me.

 This is what they were handing out to all those who stopped.  What a way to reach out to the community.

We didn't make cookies but did toast and strawberry jelly instead.
