Best wishes for a happy and blessed Easter!


Resurrexit sicut dixit

Here are a few of my favorite Easter things:

Easter Resurrection

Resurrection of the dead

The only attribution I can find for this image is “vintage.”

I had difficulty finding artwork that depicts this incredible Gospel passage. I’ve heard these verses read countless times, but this year it really  jumped out at me.

“And behold, the veil of the sanctuary was torn in two from top to bottom. The earth quaked, rocks were split, tombs were opened, and the bodies of many saints who had fallen asleep were raised. And coming forth from their tombs after his resurrection, they entered the city and appeared to many.” Matthew 27:51-53

Wow. Just wow. I find these verses to be a beautiful foretaste of the resurrection of the body. For more information on these verses, see here and here.


HatchWe picked up Hatch by Katie Cox at a Scholastic Book Fair a few years go. Every kid (and adult?) loves a lift-the-flap book, and this one, filled with photographs of baby animals that hatch from eggs is especially cute. It’s also a guessing game for kids. The left side of the page gives a written clue. Beneath the flaps on the right side of the page is the darling baby animal. Our book is so well-loved that it is falling apart at the seams. Perfect for springtime with all its animal babies and new life.

Jelly Beans

jelly beansMy kids love these Member’s Mark jelly beans. They’ve been tortured by the giant container sitting out for weeks, knowing that we won’t be indulging until Easter morning. These candies are at least as tasty as Jelly Belly jelly beans, and the great thing is that the back label depicts each jelly bean and lists its flavor. This ensures we have few discarded/wasted jelly beans as the kids know what they like and don’t like.
