And Alexander went to school with this gift for his teacher who is leaving to have her first baby.
Rebekah had a shared lunch. She wanted to take a packet of chippies, I decided to decorate biscuits with her. She made the icing and decorated them mostly by herself ... with the help of her siblings ... I showed her how to make them look like Easter eggs and then let her go for it. I had to let go of that desire to see them all done perfectly! And after school, when I asked what everyone else brought she said 'I'm glad I didn't bring chippies, most people brought chippies.'
It's probably a little early for sneak peeks, but I've used the April kit from SE to cover this tin for Alexanders teacher. He chose the doggy to go in it ... all kids need a doggy right? You'll see more of that later in the month.
It's Easter weekend and the plan is to relax, maybe do a little cleaning of the house - inside and out, maybe a little scrapbooking, a little chocolate eating, I suppose I should do a little exercise too. Hope you all have a fantastic Easter weekend and you keep safe.
Something to think about:
In 1361, a monk named Father Thomas Rocliffe made small, spicy cakes stamped with the sign of the cross to be given to the poor.
Ever since then, Hot Cross Buns have been a very special Easter symbol. Here is what they mean:
• The bread reminds us of Jesus' last meal with his disciples and how they broke bread together.
• The raisins are dried grapes and can be a reminder of the cup of wine Jesus and his disciples shared.
• The cross on top is a reminder of Jesus' death on a cross and a symbol of God's love for and desire for justice among all people.
• The spices used in the dough recall the spices the women brought to the tomb with which they planned to anoint Jesus' body.
• The buns are round and remind us of the stone that was rolled away from the tomb.
