As soon as we said goodbye to our families after Laney's party, and after Laney tested her Hello Kitty bike out in the kitchen for almost thirty minutes, we got to work on our annual creation of Resurrection cookies. My sister started making these several years ago, and now I love doing it with all three of my littles and share with them why Easter means so so much to us.
We started off with baggies of nuts that we crushed to remember that Jesus was beaten and abused for us.
Then we added eggs to symbolize the new life that we can find in Him. And finally some sugar because of the sweetness of Jesus's love for each of us.
We dolloped our mixture on our cookie sheets to form little "tombs" and sealed them in the oven.
