Easter with the Gang

We celebrated Easter about a week earlier with my friends since Vivien was in town. It was so nice to be able to see her and her three boys, especially 2-month-old Caleb whom we were meeting for the very first time.

We had decided beforehand that since we had so many kids in one place, we would have a simple Easter programme for them. Juan baked hot cross buns and Xin brought some Easter eggs. Edwin and Ren told the kids the Easter story with a felt story scene as a visual aid and amazingly, the kids all listened attentively throughout! We all chipped in to help the kids make a personalised cross with ice-cream sticks, alphabet pasta and glitter as a reminder that Jesus died for each one of them. It was a bit chaotic because the younger ones kept trying to eat the alphabet pasta but on the whole, the kids had a really meaningful time.

adorable Caleb!
