Each member of our family is so different, like individual components of a symphony. But, like a symphony, each part is important to the overall structure and sound of the piece. We all work together to make a beautiful sound...our family. Just as the Lord knit us together in the womb, He is now knitting us together as a family, for His glory, outside the womb.

Resurrection Day Recap

Dying eggs
We used a traditional dying technique for our eggs, this year.  Just dip and sit.  I look forward to getting more creative and adventurous as the kids get older.  This was easy, fun and doable for them, though, and that's the point. 
After church was over, we had a pretty relaxed Resurrection Day.  We only had one of the college students join us for our feast.  This was actually quite nice because he is a really sweet, kind of shy guy,  which allowed us to get to know him better without distractions of having to entertain a bunch of people.
 Lunch/dinner was turkey, Brussels sprouts, potatoes and rolls.
The rolls were stuck together in the freezer, so I had to thaw them all.  This made for some nice big chewy rolls.  Yum!  I love bread!
I made pumpkin pie bars for dessert.
On Good Friday we Jesus was crucified on the cross and then we buried him  in our Easter tomb.  So, on Resurrection Sunday the kids opened the tomb and Jesus' body was gone!  He has risen!
