We made "empty tomb biscuits" this evening. My mum reminded me of them when I was looking for ideas on how to celebrate Easter with the girls this year, and I'm so glad she did because they worked perfectly! Here's how they work.... (And please forgive the bad lighting and the messy house, I was cleaning up from dinner still!)
|First you take marshmallows and refrigerator biscuits....|
|...then wrap the biscuit around the marshmallow, being careful to seal it all around, and bake!|
|Once they come out of the oven, you gather around them and grin for the camera....|
|Cut open the biscuit and voila! It's empty, just like Jesus' tomb!|
The girls were on pins and needles while the biscuits baked, so hopeful that they would turn out to be empty, but still they were completely amazed when they actually were empty. Kind of seems like a perfect analogy to me. :)
And finally, Lamont was wonderful and took a picture of the girls with me while we were dressed up this morning. Actually, he took about 27 pictures, because in the first 26 of them Hannah had her eyes closed because she claimed the sun was too bright. I treasure pictures of me with the girls, because they are rare, so it was worth the 27 takes it required!
