Easter

We had such a beautiful day on Sunday. I think spring is finally here! It was a perfect day to celebrate Jesus’ resurrection.

We started the day checking out our little basket. The girls got candy, sunglasses, a personalized Lego lady, and a few new Legos.

After the girls had a little fun, they had more fun helping me make breakfast. The girls helped me try out Resurrection Rolls for the first time. I thought it would be a good illustration and lesson for them. I didn’t get into the oils/spices/embalming stuff for the butter and cinnamon sugar. Instead I just told them that the marshmallow represented Jesus and the dough represented the tomb.

IMG_7448 IMG_7452 IMG_7453 When the girls were eating I asked the big question, “Where did the marshmallow go?” They noticed that it had disappeared, so I mentioned that the roll was like the empty tomb. Our oldest though, figured it out, she concluded that the marshmallow simply melted. Oh well, I think they still got the right idea.IMG_7460We headed to church for an awesome Easter Sunday service. The older two girls were with us instead of in the back like they would be for GENESIS Kids. I enjoyed having them both with us so they could be a part of it. Towards the end about thirty people shared their testimony with simple words written on cardboard. If you have a few minutes, I encourage you to check it out.

After church there was a massive Easter egg hunt for the kiddos. By massive I mean there were tons of kids and not quite a ton of eggs 😉 The girls still had fun running around in the gorgeous weather.

One thought on “Easter

  1. You all look so great for Easter! It’s amazing how quickly Abigail, Sarah, Bridget and Lily have grown up! The four of them look as if they have a great time when they get together for family functions! I miss you all and hope you have a wonderful spring in the Northeastern part of the USA!

    Lots of love from the Tierney Family
