A Little Bit of This and a Little Bit of That

The night before Easter I thought Resurrection Cookies would be a good idea…In short, you beat nuts to represent the beating Christ endured, you taste vinegar to show what Christ was given on the cross when he was thirsty, etc. you add all the necessary ingredients and put them in the oven, seal it (as in the tomb) but when you open it on Easter morning and crack open a cookie…it is….empty…

Okay okay so I took it a little far this year 🙂

You can see Jackson wasn’t exactly “getting it” as he joyfully took advantage of any opportunity to whack something…

and when it came to tasting the vinegar…well, you can see by his face he’s thinking “Go ahead, sis…I dare you!”

But they totally got into their roles as guards…

Oh and in case you’re wondering…the cookies didn’t turn out…and yes, you are seeing things correctly…we don’t have flooring…but if what you are really thinking is “Whoa! She’s turned into one of those Crazy Christians that just sucked all the traditional “fun” things out of the holiday…” then I am here to show you that of course we did a little bit of this…

 

Which led to a little bit of this…

  

 

and my super sweet neighbors always leave a special delivery out front…

and then of course would they even care about the bunny if it weren’t for a little bit of this…

But then you add a Grammy who sent a little bit more of this…

and a G and Pops who sent a little bit more of that…

and my dear friend, Lora who sent a little more of this…

combined with some cookies from their Grammy Tammy and it tuned into a lot of this AND that…

 

and then we burned off the 8:30am sugar high with a little outdoor fun with the neighbors…

and then yet another egg hunt with some friends…and I mean look at the determination to get the eggs…like they didn’t have enough…geez…

So all in all…our Easter was a little bit of this…

and a little bit of that…

because that’s how we do it in…

I hope you had a wonderful time celebrating Easter and Resurrection Day!!
