Good Friday

Thanks to The Learning Parent's Blog, we made Resurrection Rolls today. They were so yummy, for anytime of year.

The marshmallow represents Jesus.

Melted butter represents the oils of embalming.

Dip the buttered marshmallow in the cinnamon and sugar representing the spices used to anoint the body.

Wrap up the coated marshmallow tightly in the crescent roll which represents the wrapping of Jesus' body after death.

The oven represents the tomb and the door of the oven represents the stone that covered the tomb - pretend like it was three days!

Let the rolls cool slightly. The children can open their rolls (cloth) and discover that Jesus is no longer there, HE IS RISEN!!!! (The marshmallow melts and the crescent roll is puffed up, but empty.) (Note, we didn't do ours tight enough but indeed the inside was empty, the marshmallow had disappeared on the inside.)

Here are some other highlights of our week.

Aaron is quite the lover boy, always kissing.

It snowed (slightly) this week. The girls quickly threw on the warmest clothes they could find and went outside to wait for more snow.

Here in Maryland it was a beautiful 54 degrees on this spring day. Autumn thought that was just wonderful. She was running around outside in shorts and bare feet digging in the dirt.
