More Nasty Weather=More Indoor Crafts

So, we’ve resorted to some very boring, basic play time–lining up the cars and trucks on the window sill.  I am sure if I hadn’t decided to break out the glitter pens, we would have used our sorting skills to put all the tractors together, then the trucks, then the cars, etc,etc.  Thank the Lord for glitter pens.  I bought them at Wal-mart many months ago waiting for a rainy day or for Easter morning, whichever came first.  Obviously, we have had many rainy days before Easter, so today was the day………

 

Molly was in heaven!  The girl loves some glitter.....

I am not going to post Ruby’s picture because I am tired of posting her in her drawers, so I am sure you are tired of seeing it.  

 

Mack wasn't into the glitter pens.  I used tootsie rolls to keep him busy instead.

OK, so I had way more fun than even Molly with this!  (Can you say stir-crazy?  Cabin-fever? nursery brain?)  It was nice to sit and decorate some of these eggs with the kids.  Mack was out before it even started, Ruby hung (“hanged” is grammatically correct, but that is so hard to write!) in there for several eggs, then Molly was a trooper with it all until she disobeyed and started writing with my black Sharpie, and I could still be in there glittering away, but they all left me.

Before all of this craft-mania, we read the Easter Story from their Bibles.  We were able to talk about how dark it was in the afternoon sky on that sad day when Jesus died on the cross, and we likened it to how very dark it is here.  Ruby said her favorite part was when Jesus was risen from the dead!  That is my favorite part, too!!  Molly said she does not like it when Judas kisses Jesus.

I better run.  Molly said that Mack has the “niller wafer box.”   HAPPY EASTER!
