Holiday | Easter

This Holy week was wonderful and exhausting, but also very exciting as we've been able to better explain to Sebastian what it all means. At our church's Maundy Thursday service, Cody washed Seb's feet, and thus taught Seb how Jesus washed his friends feet. On Good Friday, Sebastian went up the cross and helped his daddy place little white papers with our names on them at the foot of the cross, to symbolize us dying to ourselves. And of course, on Easter morning, we celebrated our risen King with Easter ties, jars filled with tasty treats, and lunch followed by an egg hunt at friend's house. And before bed and nap times this week, I read to Sebastian about the Last Supper, the crucifixion and Jesus' Resurrection.

Cody and I normally observe the Sabbath from sundown on Saturday to sundown on Sunday, so Easter started last night for us. We watched Easter Parade, which of course doesn't really have anything to do with Easter, but seems like a good tradition to us, and ate Easter treats. Since I'm still on my diet, I made these raw vegan brownies, which were absolutely delicious. I didn't have time to take a picture of them because, of course, I was eating them.

Happy Easter season, my friends! May you be blessed by our risen Lord Jesus.

P.S. Sebastian picked his Easter "basket" off the floor, but Bruno apparently had felt that it belonged to him, so he lunged towards Seb, grabbed him around the leg and growled. Ooo boy.
