celebrating in pictures
Engstrom clan at church Saturday night.
just the boys (the grown ones)
checking out their gifts from Bibi & Babu
all the cousins listening to the story where God made even death nothing to fear. Where Jesus triumphed and the tomb was empty.
then we made resurrection rolls- so easy (with American prepackaged goodies)- I stole the idea here (thanks Kim) and the recipe is here. And I think we have a new family tradition!
each child made a tomb, then laid jesus's body after putting the oil (butter) and spices (cinnamon and sugar) inside
then we baked them for "3 days" (errr...or 10 minutes)
and then when we opened the tomb the morning of the third day.....Jesus was no longer there! Or as the astute Joel pointed out "Jesus burned up." Not quite what we were going for but yep he is gone. He is risen! Run and tell everyone you know!
even frigid temps could not keep these cousins from hunting eggs
I somehow managed to get great pics of everyone BUT my offspring...everyone was so cute in their matching outfits even if our misfits from Africa had to wear multiple layers and borrow bags to collect their candy bootay.
