Wild Hair on Holy Week

I’ve been collecting Easter activity ideas for the kids over the last several weeks. The Resurrection Eggs have been a smashing success. Unfortunately, when Mia says the word, “Resurrection”, it comes out sounding more like a function of the male anatomy rather than the centerpiece of the Christian faith.

Needless to say, I was scouring Pinterest this morning looking for more Easter-themed activities for toddlers when when a small voice came from the front of the house that said, “Mommy, look at this snowy!” Sure enough I looked outside and it was snowing. With our hair still wet from our morning bath, we yanked on our hats and boots and went outside to play in the snow.

In her oversized hooded raincoat, Mia looked more like she was applying for early admission to Hogwarts, and I can only imagine what the neighbors thought of her running down the street clutching an olive wood statue of Mary and Joseph yelling something about a scary monster. But it is this kind of spontaneity that usually ends up meaning more to me than the most well prepared and executed kids craft project.

This morning’s adventure may not top the Pinterest charts, but so far this unplanned activity has been my favorite memory of Holy Week so far.

Do you have any special un-plans this Easter?

    “…it comes out sounding more like a function of the male anatomy rather than the centerpiece of the Christian faith.” I literally laughed out loud when I read this!

    With a sick daughter at home this week, we snuggled in my bed this morning and watched the entire movies of Beauty and the Beast and Rapunzul back to back. I don’t often “make time” to relax like this, so it was super special for us both.
