I know Easter was over a week ago, but I just have to share a few more things that we'd like to remember.
First, Eric did a wonderful job (if I do say so myself) leading our choir musical, Loved with a Cross. It was a very unique and difficult one to pull off because it did not have a person play the character of Jesus. Instead, you had to imagine where He was during each scene. We really liked this better because no one really knows what He looks like. And it also reminds me that we need to remember that He is always with us now even when we can't see Him. I need to be reminded of that at times.
Here is a link to Keri's Blog where she posted a lot of neat pictures and music from the musical.
Second, I found this neat idea of Resurrection Rolls at the Women Living Well blog. I'd never heard of them before, and in the busyness of the weekend, I forgot to make them ON Easter morning. Instead, the boys and I made them on Monday evening. They are crescent rolls with a marshmallow inside and rolled in cinammon sugar.
Each part represents part of the Easter story. The crescent roll is the tomb, the marshmallow represents Jesus, the cinammon & sugar represent the oil & spices that the ladies used prepare Jesus' body for burial. When you bake them, "Jesus" disappears and the tomb is empty! They are so cool and so yummy! You'll have to look at the pictures on the Women Living Well blog because I forgot to take some while we were cooking & eating. :)
Finally, here are a few pictures of our time at the Kiwanis Easter Egg Hunt in Athens. Evan & Ethan LOVE playing at this playground. We need to spend more time there. Enjoy!
My 3 cute boys!
I think Ethan's eyes are as sensitive to the sun as mine are.
My sweet boys.
