Resurrection Preparations!

Interrupting this post to let you know that a Kindle Countdown has started for Remembering the Alamo! Get the book for only $1.99 today - a 61% discount! The price will go up a little every day until Friday. Get your ecopy now!

On Tuesday, my grandma came over to make Resurrection Day empty tombs!

Here is the mini one Grandma made as an example. Isn't it darling?

You basically pack wet earth around a little pot, plant grass seed on it, and decorate away with stones!

Aren't they nice? No grass yet (Miracle Grow doesn't work that fast!) but it will come...

We also made empty tomb cupcakes!

Is this little guy slightly cute and dramatic or what?

Teaching Nathan has to pipe icing was interesting... The icing all came out the wrong end for some reason. ;)

Get the idea? Another Pinterest "nailed-it" project, methinks! 

Aren't they cute? :)

We are also planning for a Resurrection cantata at church. Lots of music and preparation, but it has been fun.

What are you doing in preparation for Resurrection Day?
