Happy Easter!


Yesterday was one of the best Easters I can remember.  Every night before Easter, we decorate the house and get Easter baskets together so the children wake up to a surprise in the morning.  I made two banners last year and this year, we added some Easter Icons and more religious art. 

On Easter, we to relax and enjoy each others company the way Easter is meant to be: teaching our children about the importance of the Resurrection, living the Resurrection by going to Mass, and carrying out the joy of the resurrection in our enjoyment of the gifts God has given.  

This week, we plan to do extend our Easter celebration with plenty of Easter crafts and Easter stories. 

Happy Easter to you and your families!

Allison,
I printed off Easter Sheet music onto construction paper. The back also has a printed image of a vintage bunny. I cut the paper to look like flags, punched holes and put these easter eggs on http://www.creationsbykara.com/2012/03/easter-craft-easy-easter-egg-banner.html
and wrote Happy Easter on them! Strung it up with twine.
