Easter has gone

Well, Easter has come and gone, but we really had a great week leading up to the special day. As is our usual tradition, we made the tomb/mountain out of dough and baked it and made pipe cleaner people to act out all the stories leading up to the crucifixion and resurrection. But this year we really upgraded the pipe cleaner people. We made them out of wood beads, pipe cleaners, yarn and we sewed them clothes. They turned out great. I think all the fuss over making them helps us to remember that Easter is important and we do special things to plan for it, just like Christmas. Anyway, here are a few of my favorite Easter pics and there is even one of the risen Jesus who has conquered sin and death.
