On Palm Sunday the kids did a few special songs at the front of the church.
They came in waving their palm leaves. When Vi got to the front she didn't want
to put her palm leaf down and they had to convince her to lay it down. She stood
up on the stage with the other kids and waved both little hands at us while yelling,
"Hi Mommy. Hi Mommy. Mommy, I can see some people behind you." Most of the
congregation laughed at her while I sat in the pew smiling and crying. It was
so precious to see her standing up there waving at us with both arms.
We participated in the egg dying ritual. Violet had a great time stirring,
dipping, wiping, peeling, and even eating the eggs.
And we hid eggs and had baskets (thanks to Grandpa and Grandma P.).
We hid about 20 eggs and each egg contained 1 M&M - hey, they are lucky I
didn't use Cheerios.
Here are the girls almost ready for church.
We have a picture of Violet from last year about this time (and Erica, it's another Shaklee box).
Violet has this idea that Anara is a capable helper. She said, "Anara, can you help me put my clothes on?" And Anara of course replies, "Yeah Violet, I can help you."
