easter prep

During holy week Zach read to the boys each night in the Jesus Storybook Bible and Micah read from his bible the events of the day leading up to the resurrection.  The boys asked lots of good questions and we gave answers and just the fact that their is communication happening makes my spirit rejoice.

We also did some crafty cooking stuff together.  During the week we decorated eggs, made butterscotch birds nests to take to church and made resurrection rolls to have on Easter morning.  They are really easy and so fun.
You tell the story of preparing Jesus body for the tomb by using a marshmallow rolled in melted butter (oils) and cinnamon/sugar (spices) then wrap it in a crescent roll (linen).  The next morning when you bake them the marshmallow melts so when you bite into it the Tomb is empty :)
