under one of our big oak trees. Note the arrow shaped head. He might be little, but he's definitely poisonous. Needless to say, we had to 'do away' with him. Ash asked that we give him a proper burial-always the animal advocate.
Tonight we dyed Easter eggs. We have some really interesting decorations. Fun!
I wanted to end with an Easter story that I think about every year, but have never written down. It's probably one of my favorite stories from when Sydney was little. I think she was 4.
We had been to church and Sydney had a little Jesus on a popcicle stick. As soon as we got home, she asked me for a paper towel roll. I managed to come up with one, and watched as she played with her popcicle-stick-Jesus, setting the paper towel roll aside. As she played, she told the Easter story. I was really impressed how well she remembered the story, and was enjoying the play. Then she stuffed her little popcicle-stick-Jesus into the paper towel roll and sat it to the side, looking at me proudly. Unable to resist, I asked her why she put Jesus in the paper towel roll. She looked at me in her best didn't you pay attention at church? look and sighed.
"You know, Momma! Three days later, He a-rose from the tube!"
But when they looked up, they saw that the stone, which was very large, had been rolled away. As they entered the tomb, they saw a young man dressed in a white robe sitting on the right side, and they were alarmed.
"Don't be alarmed," he said. "You are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who was crucified. He has risen! He is not here. Mark 16:4-6
Praise God! He is not here-He arose from the tube!!
Remember the real reason for Easter, and then have a wonderful one!

P.S. I am trying new things on my blog, just playing around until I get it the way I want it. Please let me know if there is something that you like or don't like (i.e. the music player? Is it annoying? Is it too loud? Etc.) Just a little input if you will. :)
