Happy Easter!

Happy Easter from our family to yours!!!
We've had a wonderful day today. We started this morning by checking out Josie's basket to see what the Easter Bunny left for her. She got several treats---bubbles, a CD, stickers, a notebook, jewelry, M&Ms, Goldfish, and a new Dora jumprope! Then we went to church where Lane delivered a wonderful message on how the empty tomb transforms our lives. After worship, we headed to Lebanon to have lunch and an egg hunt with Lane's family. It's been a great day...we are so blessed to be surrounded by friends and family to share such a special day. But the greatest blessing of all is that our Savior conquered death for us when He rose from the dead. We sang "In Christ Alone" this morning, and these words have been resonating in my heart all day:
There in the ground His body lay
Light of the world by darkness slain.
Then bursting forth in glorious day
Up from the grave He rose again!
And as He stands in victory
Sins's curse has lost it's grip on me.
For I am His, and He is mine....
Bought with the precious blood of Christ!

Our Easter eggs this year.....
I bought this kit at Target for $5. Super cute!! Josie and I had a great time dying and putting stickers on the eggs to make our jungle scene. Throughout the process, she kept begging to eat an egg. I really don't know what she was expecting and knew she wouldn't like it. She loves scrambled eggs, but we don't make hard-boiled eggs very often. After tediously having to wait to decorate the eggs first before getting to eat one, she (obviously!) did not care for it. Oh well....they're too cute to eat anyway! My favorite is the giraffe....

Spring has Sprung!

It's officially Spring and we've been busy doing Spring-time things!
A few weeks ago, I made this wreath to hang on our front door. I had seen one like it at JoAnn's and LOVED it, but was unwilling to spend $30 on it. So....I spent $10 and made this one.
Josie and I have already started making Easter treats. I had seen several cute ideas on Pinterest that I wanted to try....
Bunny Bark
(Golden Oreos, pretzels, & M&Ms in candy coating)

Bunny Bait (my favorite!)
(popcorn, pretzels, M&Ms mixed together in white chocolate)

Bunny Bread

Yesterday we had our church Egg Hunt. One of our elders and his wife host the egg hunt each year in their BEAUTIFUL back yard (complete with an awesome playground!). We had fantastic weather and everyone had a great time. Josie got to look for eggs out in the grass with the "big kids" this year.
After several minutes, she became less interested in finding more eggs and more interested in finding out what was in the eggs that she had. Which was......
Melted chocolate!!!
