Easter Sunday Celebration

This past Sunday we celebrated Easter Sunday.  Little Philip made a rugged cross in children's church that was so beautiful.  We made it the center piece of the table.  While he was very excited to hunt for eggs, he truly understood the true meaning of Easter Sunday and was thrilled to find out that the children's church activity was to tell the story of Jesus with Resurrection eggs.  If you've never seen these, they are a very special way to explain a difficult and complex story for the typical four year old.  Each egg has a small object in it (dice for casting lots for Jesus's robe, crown of thorns, etc) with an accompanying story segment of the week leading up to Jesus' death and resurrection.  The last egg is empty to symbolize the empty tomb.  He is risen!
