This last week has been one of sickness at our house. Beginning on Tuesday when the stomach flu began. By yesterday afternoon I still had kids throwing up so Jason and I decided to keep our family home this morning. When I told Faith, my oldest, that we were all too sick for me to make our traditional Easter meal, she started crying. Only promises that I would make it on a different day pacified her. (I had to make the same promise to my husband!) I guess they do notice the work I do…when it doesn’t happen anyway!
I did want today to be special though so last night the girls helped me make Resurrection Rolls. We have never had them before so they didn’t know ahead of time what would happen, but they had fun rolling the dough around the marshmallow!
This morning it was so fun giving each of them their roll for breakfast and watching their face as the realized the marshmallow they put in the rolls was gone. I loved explaining to them that is why they are called resurrection rolls. Just like the tomb was empty because Jesus rose from the grave so our rolls are empty. He is Risen! Happy Easter everyone!
