we celebrated a lovely easter together. the kids have been sick with a cold (dylan), croup and a fever (james), so it was nice to just relax a bit at home today, after a good worship service.
(the sweater dylan is wearing was made for me by my grandmother when i was a baby. crazy, huh? dylan wore that same size 18 month dress last spring. by the time james is walking i think they'll be the same size!)
the weather was gorgeous and warm, perfect for hiding and finding easter eggs. dylan delighted in filling her baskets with pastel eggs. jim prepared a delicious venison roast, and the three of us shared the kind of elegant meal that is rarely seen these days:) we missed extended family but enjoyed the quiet time together, especially after a busy week.
we're only just beginning to think about creating holiday traditions. i like the idea of using resurrection eggs as a family devotional, and i'm intrigued by these advent spiralsthat can be used to remember lent as well. what were/are some of the ways your family celebrates easter?
praising God for the empty tomb. the Lord is risen indeed. hallelujah!
