Origin: We Talk of Christ, We Rejoice in Christ
Don't they look delicious!?
I have ALWAYS wanted to do this with the kids. Unfortunately, I have only remembered to do it after Easter is said and done. This year however, I plan on making them ahead of time.
This is a great object lesson in teaching
The Resurrection of Christ.
The rolls represent the tomb.
The marshmallows represent Christ.
While baking, the marshmallow melts leaving an empty roll.
This is a fantastic way for children to experience The Resurrection and in only about 13 minutes instead of 3 days.
All dressed up and ready to go to Aunt Nysie's (Denise for those of you who don't know her as such).
Here they all are hopping down the bunny trail from my sister's house down to the water retention area where the "big" kids hid the eggs for the annual Easter Egg Hunt.
Devyn was so cute volunteering to not hunt this year so he could help his baby sister, Denym. Which is a pretty big sacrifice being that their are several cash prizes to our egg hunts for those who find the Silver Egg, the Most Eggs and the Least Eggs (usually a small child who gets this one).
Dyxon couldn't wait to get started...see the anticipation? He was so excited!
Daddy helping out during the hunt!
Here they all are showing their wares...(take note of my sister's outfit ~ she's standing next to Chris).
And here is Dagyn sporting the Silver Egg! Woo Hoo, way to go, Dagyn!!!
And what a cutie pie Denym is in sporting her piggie-tails on her officially "first" Easter Egg Hunt.
Dyson was on a mission! He was very busy looking for as many eggs as possible (in the foreground) and I was very busy trying to take as many pictures as possible (in the background) that it was difficult catching a good picture of him.
Not sure if any of you noticed that my sister and I managed to dress alike...honestly, we didn't plan it. But we both were wearing light pink tops...and to think, I could have wore my gray pants and we would have been the Bobbsey twins!
And this could not go without mention...Denym just LOVES the stairs at my sister's. She spent most of her time there going up & down and turning on & off the light that it was pretty easy to keep track of her. Which was a good thing with all the kids (big & small) running around over there.
And here I am, one content mommy...tummy full of Mexican food & a pocket full of cash. What? Didn't I mention that 2 of my kids won a cash prize from the Easter Egg Hunt...? You see, it completely pays to have a BIG Family!
And where was Dylan all this time, you may be asking...? He was cooped up in the loft with a movie and the video games. So typical of our Dylan.
