Easter Weekend, GRITS style

 

Phew….raise you hand if your weekend was too short?!

You can’t see me but I am raising my hand WiLdLY!!!

 

My folks got to come down for the weekend and the kids were pretty excited to see Yaya and Papa. 

We did our usual egg dying routine which resulted in the slightly permanent pink staining of the Princess’ fingers.  I don’t really enjoy the mess of the egg dying, but it’s a must do.

The highlight of Saturday night the kids and I made Resurrection Cookies.  I found the recipe HERE on the Internet last year.  It is a wonderful activity to share with children the true meaning of Easter.  Sorry, I didn’t share it with you sooner, but you will want to bookmark it for next year.

 

 

This morning we removed our cookies from our “tomb”.

And the middle of the cookies are hollow, representing the empty tomb!

Here are a few more photos from our wonderful Easter day:

Happy Easter from the GRITS family!

 

 

 

Or, as we Greek folks say on Easter:

 

Christos Anesti – Christ is risen!

Alithos Anesti -  He is risen indeed!

We usually do those cookies every year, but didn't this year. Too crazy. They're actually pretty good.
