    Giveaway!  don’t forget about those sweet, handmade butterflies

    It’s the day we set aside to remember Christ’s ultimate sacrifice and the miracle of his resurrection.  We had a little presentation today at church.  I wrote up a couple of paragraphs and picked a song for the young children at our church to take part in.

    It was very cute and sweet.  I enjoy working with the children to make memories and they love standing up in front of their moms and dads to show them their hard work.  There was a short sermon by the pastor and then an egg hunt in the park, which was good for us because we didn’t get the kids any baskets this year.

     Yes, rain, rain, rain

    Don’t stone me, yet.  I’m still trying to decide how commercial I want to go with this holiday.  It’s fun to do all of the traditional things, don’t get me wrong.  I have FABulous memories of when I was a kid, but …. but, I just really want my children to absorb the meaning of Christ’s resurrection.

    Cylas got mini Toy Story figurines

    After church I made a quick meal of homemade mac-n-cheese for lunch, papa played Crazy Eights with Cylas, then we took the best nap.  I really love napping.  But I made sure not to snooze the afternoon away because that Easter dinner was needing to be cooked.  This year it was just us.  Perfect.  I was so happy in the kitchen making one of our favorite meals.  Pork and cabbage.  Yes, another Julia Child’s recipe.  Took about two hours, but well worth it and so, so tasty. (there will be a photo op of this dish soon…thought I had posted this recipe but I hadn’t…shame on me)

    Today was a comfort food and family type of day.  It’s hard for me to describe how I felt inside, but it was good.  Just being with my husband and children, creating, cooking and playing together has such a rewarding feeling connected to it — indescribable.

    What did you do for Resurrection Sunday?
