NOTE*** If you want to attempt this craft you want to make sure you use 100% cotton yarn, regluar latex balloons and craft glue. I know of several people who tried to make these and they didn't turn out. It is important to use the right supplies or this will be a flop. Also, this craft isn't very good for younger children. It's tedious and boring to them after about five minutes and it takes about twenty minutes to complete one string egg.
The first thing I did on Saturday was to go to the grocery store. Our house was empty of anything worth eating and we were almost out of TP. Two major reasons that a run to the store was a priority. Carlos was nice enough to keep all the kids at home with him so I was able to get in and out rather quickly.
Saturday afternoon was upon us all too soon and it was time to get ready for church. We attend church on Saturday evenings for the most part. However, our church was having several different services for Easter, so we opted to attend the Saturday afternoon service. It took me a good hour to get everyone dressed in their "Sunday best" so that we could take some pictures.
Easter service at our church was great! The message was pertinent and well delivered and the music was fantastic! The kids enjoyed their service as well. They always look forward to Easter so that they can see how Mr. Steve (the childrens' ministry director) will destroy a marshmallow peep. They have seen peeps microwaved, pounded with a hammer, lit on fire and smooshed in a blender.
*** Notice how all the boys have buckets on their heads? Yes, that was thanks to my son. :)
