~My Simple Spring/Easter Decor!~

First off, let me say that Jesus is healing little Mary's cut from her fall Saturday night. 
Like I said earlier, we are VERY THANKFUL that the Sharp corner that sliced her head when she tripped and fell, didn't catch her eye or do more damage.
Thank you for your prayers and concern. 
~These pictures were taking on Monday morning, just 2 days after it happened.  As you can see her little face is swollen some, but her cut is healing nicely.~
 ~Phillip said that when he got her to the hospital and the doctor took off the paper towel, it was very scary looking.  So, we are so happy that Jesus is helping it to heal so well!
 

~ Spring/Easter Decor!~
I love Easter!  
I always have!
I mean the fact that God so loved this world...including ME...so much that He sent His Only Begotton Son...JESUS...to die for our sins, is Incredible!  
It's Awesome that Jesus was WILLING to die for our sins!
I LOVE the fact that Jesus didn't stay in the tomb, but arose again, and is at the right hand of the Father Interceding for YOU and for Me! :-) 
 ~Some of you may have seen this fun idea on Pinterest.  The girls helped me make a "cross" using baby Abigail's foot prints. 
If you haven't tried to do a baby's footprints on paper, they aren't easy.
Maybe I should have waited till Abigail was sleeping, but she is such a light sleeper, that that probably wouldn't have helped!
But, I'm happy with how they turned out! :-) ~
 ~Used my little bicycle with purple flowers as part of this decor, and I used the same paper I did Abigail's foot prints with, to make a dust jacket for a book, to add another touch of purple to this display.
(When you are on the mission field and you don't have many of your things nor decor with you, you have to be creative. Hee! Hee! :-)
 ~Phillip wrote, "He Is Risen" in 3-D type letters on my chalkboard, and I made a crown of thorns from a bush out in our back yard.~
 ~On the other side of our dinning room.~
 ~I wrote "He Lives" using Scrabble letters.~
 ~And in the kitchen where we eat....I took paper and made 2 banners...~

 ~And made some dust jackets for some more books to coordinate with my banner to put in the middle of the 2 banners.~

 ~And then I found this adorable TINY tin that says, "Tea" and fell in love with it. 
When I got home it totally matched the colors of my banner. :-) ~
 ~Isn't this fun?~
 ~And then I helped the kids make handprints and we made a cross ...~
 ~and A wreath!~

 ~Even tiny Abigail stayed still for us to trace her hand. :-) ~
 ~I trust that y'all are having a Happy Easter Week...and have a wonderful Resurrection Lord's Day!

Thank you for the update and pictures of Miss Mary. It does show she is healing nicely but boy, that was one horrible cut! All of your cute decorations look so fun for Easter, and the colorful handprint wreath and cross is unique and festive. Abigail is so cute in the new picture you put of her at the top of your blog. It's something that she lets you put those hats on her and she doesn't pull them off. (Or maybe she does!) I love it that Phillip said she is mischievious! What a fun personality for your sixth child! Yes, may your precious family have a wonderful Easter because of Jesus. And remember, as Dad said, Easter isn't just about rabbits laying Easter Eggs! Love, Mom D
