Around our house, we've named the day before Easter "Sad Saturday". We always make Resurrection Cookies to help us remember Christ's sacrifice.
This video reminded me of just how much our kids have grown and how far we have come as a family as our circumstances have changed over the years.
No matter what changes around us, I'm grateful that God doesn't change.
One thing that was different this year was that Katherine leaned a little too far over the mixing bowl and got her hair stuck in the beaters just as stiff peaks had formed. I really don't want this to become a family tradition! Benjamin patiently untangled her hair and helped her rinse out all of the goop.
Having all six of us underneath the same roof brings me such joy. We laugh so much when we're together!
Maybe it's easy not to be sad on this day before Easter because we know the end of the story.
Benjamin had us absolutely holding our bellies with laughter as he helped "clean up" the dishes.
We sealed the tomb/oven in great anticipation of what we would find on Easter morning...
