Other activities this week were to read the account of Jesus entering Jerusalem on Palm Sunday together as a family on Sunday night, dying Easter Eggs and then taking some to people we love, and tomorrow we will make lamb cookies according to my mother's tradition. Just a sugar cut out cookie frosted with white with a snipped raisin or a dried current for the eye. Yummy. We died our Easter eggs using this kit by Easter Unlimited called Easter Sunday Egg Decorating Kit. It had great Christian decals that my kids enjoyed. Sorry I don't have a picture though. Another fun place to visit is http://www.tentwostudios.com/countdown/ for her Easter countdown of paper ephemera downloads.
In movies I'm planning to watch the Ten Commandments, Jesus Christ Superstar, The Passion and maybe the Gospel of John too. For books I love Easter Bunny Are You For Real. There is also a book in this series about Santa Claus that is excellent. I highly recommend them both.
I hope you are having a wonderful week preparing for Easter with your family as well. I'd love to hear what you are doing.
