Good Friday Fun, Easter 2012

Ahh!  Its Easter already!  The past couple weeks I've been so busy thinking about planning Aria's birthday party, that Easter has snuck up on me, and I really wanted to make the most of this incredible holiday we celebrate to help my kids understand what Jesus has done for us through his death and resurrection!

So, tomorrow, being Good Friday, we're going for a little walk with the young adults from our church in the morning to a hill that overlooks the city.  We're planning on spending some time worshiping and praying for the city there.

Then, I was thinking it might be fun to try making some hot cross buns this year (I'm not a bake your own bread kind of gal, unless using the bread machine counts!).  So, I've got my recipe written out, and I think we'll work on that when we get back from the hike.  Oh!  I could make the dough before we leave, and then it could rise for two hours while we're out!  Brilliant.

And we'll do some egg-dying too.  I boiled the eggs tonight so they're all ready for tomorrow!

I thought these look like fun, but I don't know that I really love the idea of dying the actual egg I'm eating, or having peeled eggs hanging out in my fridge until we get around to eating them!  So we'll probably do the marble swirled eggs that we did two years ago.

And then we'll head to my parents for a family dinner!  I'm looking forward to a family day, where we can talk about Jesus' love for us, and his perfect love sacrifice that he made so that we could experience freedom and joy and forgiveness!

Happy Good Friday!
