Getting Ready for Easter

We've really been enjoying our time with Brian home. Lots of fun memories! He taught the kids how to play Old Maid.Our cute little guy. We were able to have a few hours by ourselves one day for some shopping, lunch and mini-golf!

Easter preparations: our Easter Tree.

Making Peanut Butter Eggs. You know how we (okay, Brian) love all things PB and chocolate around here! :)

Resurrection Rolls. They've definitely become a tradition. Click the link for directions on how to make them and pics of us doing it last year. This year we dipped in melted butter before the cinnamon sugar and while they tasted good, it was much messier to make than without.

Quick recap: you dip a marshmallow in cinnamon sugar (melted butter first if you want) and then wrap in a crescent roll (or other dough.) Bake and the marshmallow will melt created a hollow roll when you bite into it.

It's an empty tomb! Jesus is alive!

Coloring Eggs:

Wow... Look at all the pretty colors!

I didn't get a picture of it but we have Resurrection Eggs (each plastic egg has an item inside to tell the Easter story) and the kids have really gotten into them this year. Fun to see them act it out--I love to watch their little hearts and minds in action. We'll be celebrating Easter together with some friends on Sunday. Hope you have a wonderful day with your family and friends. He is Risen!

Thanks for the reminder on the resurrection rolls, we did that a few years ago but I had forgotten about them, I think that will be our family activity tomorrow with coloring easter eggs!

Looks like you guys have had a great time! I love Tina's resurrection rolls (ok so I just love Tina's rolls in general lol). Have a blessed Easter!

It's great to have these traditions...I am dying eggs with my 18 year old (Tim) today. I'm so thankful he still wants to do it.
