2 eggs each ;)

Our Easter. Last Supper reenactment. We also did a Palm Sunday reenactment. (Yes Jesse and Woody teamed up as disciples in this reenactment)

Our 30 Sugar cookies. Representing the thirty pieces of silver that Jesus was betrayed for.

This blog had several ideas Christ Centered Easter ideas!

Our basic Easter baskets.

We colored eggs earlier in the week...however I forgot to bye eggs and so we only ended up with 6, and NO they did not look like master pieces or tie dyed like these really fun pictures I have been seeing on our internet world. Nope just the typical colored eggs in dye with a few bits and bobs on them. Yep, pretty simple and the kids loved coloring their '2' eggs a piece.  As a mom I just choose not to feel bad about the egg thing. Really it is called life and in this house life is always happening and so I seized our egg coloring moment and helped the kids enjoy it to its fullest.  We also had an Easter egg hunt...I added some plastic eggs I had, or it would have been one short Easter egg hunt. ;)

I adore Easter. I enjoy so much that we can read the events through the week  that take place from Sunday to Sunday. I love the fact that we who are believers in Christ celebrate a Savior who rose from the dead. We rejoice about the cross instead of avoid it..I mean really you talk about radical and different. This holiday is so unique and special so full of life and power.

We celebrated Easter this year with two other believers. It was quiet but it in NO way lost it's power. Resurrection celebration is something to sing about no matter how many or how few there are to do it.

Purposing to keep a simple life and a life centered on Christ. 

In my West Corner,

Happened on your blog from a pinterest link. Stuck around and checked it out when i saw that you lived in Turkey.

I used to travel to Antalya for archery competitions when I was in high school/college. It was always one of my favorite tournament sites; I always found the Turkish culture to be very inviting and friendly, and it is just so incredibly beautiful there!

I'd love to have the opportunity to let my children experience some real life outside of the U.S. Traveling really opens your eyes; every single time I have gotten back to US soil, I have felt a great sense of gratitude to be an American citizen--especially as a woman.

Enjoy your time there, and I'll be back to check out some of your projects as we home school our 3 and 6 year old girls.
