Easter Sunday started bright (or dark with rainclouds) and early. We have a tradition of making Resurrection Cookies the night before Easter, but the weather forecast was calling for rain, and the cookies do not turn out well when the humidity is high. So we arose early to make Resurrection Rolls instead. This will probably be our new tradition. I found the rolls are simpler to make than the cookies. They also made a nice breakfast with coffee and sausage.
In spite of the downpour, thunder, and lightning, we had a large turnout at Mass. In contrast with the dreariness outside, the sanctuary was bright, warm, and fragrant with lilies, candles, and incense. In addition to celebrating Easter, we got to see the young ones at Church receive their First Holy Communion. I taught the class this year for the first time, and I was proud of the four young men who received their First Holy Communion.
We came home to a roast in the slowcooker and enjoyed a lovely Easter dinner together. And of course, we took lots and lots of pictures. It was Juju's first Easter!
