Rainin’ & Tomb Rolls

It’s been rainin’ a lot here lately.  It hasn’t stopped us from getting outside, though.  It took some convincing before C and M decided that playing in the rain was, indeed, fun!  Outside is so green and refreshing now too!  The boys’ green bean and nasturtium seeds are thriving in their egg cartons, soon ready to transplant to the garden.  Max has seized every opportunity to wash his hair in the gigantic puddle at the end of our street…while wearing pajamas.  Zeke is walking everywhere now, and has the cutest buzz cut around.  Nevermind that he screamed the entire three minutes at Great Clips!   He’s facing forward in the car and holding his own outside on the playset too, which just add to his new big-boy personality.  And most importantly, we’ve been talking a lot about Easter.  Last night we made Empty Tomb Rolls since my parents visited, and we will do it again tomorrow morning.   It’s a great time to read the story of Jesus’s resurrection, too, as you examine your empty tombs before you gobble them up.  Yum!

Empty Tomb Rolls:  You need 12 large marshmallows, 2 T. melted butter, cinnamon/sugar mixture, and 1 package crescent roll dough.   Dip a marshmallow in melted butter and then roll in cinnamon/sugar mixture.  Wrap one piece of crescent roll dough entirely around the marshmallow and pinch to close.  Place in greased muffin tin and then repeat until you’ve used all of the dough.  Bake for 10 minutes or so, and then let cool before eating.  You’ll notice that the marshmallow you put inside is gone!  The tomb is empty!
