Have I mentioned recently that Easter is my absolutely, postitively, favorite holiday of my life?
At our home, we celebrate Easter all week long. We celebrate the last 8 days of the Saviors life, starting with Palm Sunday. Here is a peek into our Palm Sunday event.
Shae pretending to be the colt that Christ rode upon during his triumphant entry into Jeruselum. Brian portraying Christ.
Shae waving the Palm Branch we made as a family. When the Savior entered Jeruselum, the people waved Palm branches and shouted "Hosana, Hosana, Hosana to the son of David!"
Then they would lay the palm branches down in front of the pathway for the colt to walk upon to symbolize his royalty.
*****BEEP, BEEP, BEEP******
This post is interupted to bring to you some Monday awesomeness!
On Monday, I was given a hand sewn pillow as one of my prizes for participating in the Skinny Service. I had the wonderful woman sew on one of mine and Brian's favorite quotes on it!
It is glorious and I love it!
It is happily sitting on my front bench in the entry way!
Monday we talked about when the Savior cleansed the temple. This night had more of a spiritual feel because we compared our home and our bodies to the temple and would the Savior need to come and do some "house cleaning" there?
We set some goals as a family and Shae was a little inspired to clean up the mess she had made in the family room.
Tuesday we talked about how the Savior taught in Parables. We talked about the parable of the 10 virgins (one of my all time favorites!!!)
We then made our own lamps to help us remember the parable and remind us to be prepared like the 5 wise virgins. Playing with the playdo was helpful in helping Shae to remember and most importantly like the scripture parable.
