Just some Easter FUN!

Oh how I LOVE Easter! Our family is so...looking forward to this glorious upcoming weekend. The weather is supposed to be beautiful and we have lots of fun things planned. All our extended family will be coming over here on Sunday after church to celebrate. Instead of a traditional Easter lunch, we decided to have brunch. The menu is all planned and it should be yummy!
Can't wait!

With Easter just around the corner, the kids and I got busy in the kitchen yesterday afternoon.

We had fun baking "Some BUNNY loves you" cupcakes, and dyeing Easter eggs.
The Bunny cupcakes were a HUGE hit with my boys and were super easy to do!

We had fun decorating several dozen bunnies and then delivered them to a few of our neighbors as a special Easter treat.

After our cupcakes were done, it was time to dye some eggs.

This was a much messier task, but equally as fun.

Even little miss Sophie got to decorate a few eggs.

She was lovin' it!

The boys had a great time being creative as they decorated each of their eggs.

I also found this GREAT recipe for "Empty Tomb Easter Rolls" which I'm really excited to try on Sunday morning before church. They sound so..........neat and I know the kids will get a kick out of them. I'll let you know how they turn out!

Happy Easter Everyone!

I'll bet your neighbors enjoyed their wonderful surprises! Those are some adorable cupcakes- we might have to try our hand at making those tomorrow!

I have a sewing question for you Jenny, well, 2 actually... do you simply sew a casing and then pull the ribbon through to make the gathers? That's what I'm thinking. Also, those appliqued pieces you made were wonderful- do you use an iron-on stabilizer before sewing them on? Thanks! :)
