I could see, from the quick downhill progression of my throat, that this Easter will be more low-key than usual. Knowing this, we got everyone up, took them to 7 AM Mass, and spent the morning giving thanks for Our Risen Lord. Well, we tried, anyway. The little two were pretty much asleep and the older two were content to sing a bit, read a bit, and space out. Considering it was standing room only (at 7 AM Mass!) that was the best we could have hoped for in the end.
We headed home and I stayed up long enough to help the kids make Resurrection Rolls. They are very cute and just what we needed to reinforce the message of the week.
You take a crescent roll (I used the canned ones) and lay it flat. Next, dip a marshmallow in melted butter and roll it in cinnamon and sugar then lay it on the dough. The marshmallow is Jesus and the cinnamon/sugar are the spices with which they prepared Him for burial. Fold it all over the marshmallow and voila, Jesus is in the sealed tomb.
Leftovers from last night's Blessed Easter Feast for dinner. Simple and relaxed, just the way I like it.
I hope you are all enjoying the blessings of family and peace on this joyous day! Happy Easter!
