Ahh, Easter. The holiday that brings out bunnies, chocolate and flowers. Even though we just moved and can't find out Easter decorations, I was able to dig out some scrapbook paper, plastic baggies, trim, Lindt mini chocolates, and my trusty hot glue gun. Do you remember the teeny-weeny Easter baskets I made last year? Here's a new little twist on them--I added plastic Easter grass to the bottom and got busy decorating the tops...
They really are a hoot to make; you should make some! They put a smile on my face and hope it does the same for their recipients!
And some more yummies... Easter egg cookies! The girls and I had a grand ol' time in the kitchen dressing them up.
Lay them atop a plate of Easter grass and drop them off to friends and family!
Another tasty treat my tummy enjoys this time of year are Whopper's malt eggs... scrumptious. I've been known to eat mass quantities of these little buggers at one sitting. MASS QUANTITIES, I tell you!
And take a looksy at these beautiful tulips Aaron brought home to me a few days ago. Their presence in the kitchen put a smile on my face each time I enter the room.
But amidst all the fun decorations and goodies that Easter brings, I try to keep my focus on the real reason for Easter. If you have an extra 2 minutes and 40 seconds to watch this video, please do!
p.s. I have a feeling the Easter Bunny is bringing some friends for the girls' Strawberry Shortcake Collection... which ones will they be?? :)
