Celebrating Our Earth... and Creation in General

So it was a busy weekend in our little household... we celebrated Earth Day, a few days late, because that was when our favorite festival was held this year. It was a great day on Saturday having our own family celebration too. Here's a glimpse of our fun:

We baked pumpkin bread and had salad, veggies, rice, pita, a bit of chicken, and hummus and cucumbers... my kids love casual dinners and we were so happy to be able to eat outside. (Code for... it was freakin hot in the house!)

We read the kids two books...The Giving Tree and this one:

Then it was time to make our Thank You Earth Banner and we all did it as a family... even Sweet Pea participated, though he grew restless quickly.

We have decided to hang our Thank You Earth Banner in our Dining Room, though I suspect it will end up outside on our patio as we near the warmer weather. We want to have what we are grateful for right with us when it is time to thank the Lord at prayer time and meal time!

So this is the version of our weekend that is picture perfect for the blog. Stay tuned for tomorrow's post, where I will reveal the good, the bad and the down right ugly of our Earth Day celebration. I cannot have a post on a blog about simplicity that doesn't keep it real. Much of what we did to celebrate was quite simplistic, but there were a few moments of chaos in there too. IYKWIM.
