Between our older children and our youngest there is quite an age difference. I've really felt that as a mom this Easter season. Our older ones don't really want to watch the Veggie Tales Easter video or hunt for eggs. A couple of years ago, we did a Simplified Seder Supper that you can download from this site. (Sidenote: We are a Protestant family and experienced no problems with the way the information was presented.) My oldest mentioned that she had really enjoyed this experience and would love to do it again in the future. So, I was more than happy to trek to the store to get what we needed.
We talked about the sacrifice Christ made for us and participated in Communion together as we ended the Seder.
It's been a tradition for a few years to make these Hot Cross Buns on Good Friday. Michael helped me this year and they turned out as delicious as ever. (Tera made the icing!) We usually have them earlier in the day, but we got a late start. But these rolls are great anytime!
As much as we would love for things to remain the same in our families, the truth remains...kids grow up. Sometimes they don't want to hold on to all the traditions they did as young children. I'm thankful that we can still have meaningful traditions that they will never outgrow!
