Easter Weekend

I hope everyone had a great Easter weekend, I know we did! Saturday morning the kiddos and I made the tie-dye cupcakes I mentioned on Friday. These were really great to make together because the kids were able to pick and mix their own color. Jill, naturally, picked red, Aaron picked yellow, so that left me with green.

They even put all the liners in the muffin pans for me. I overheard Aaron say that he couldn't do it, it was too hard and he didn't want to, and Jill replied, "Just do it Aaron! I did it!". Sigh. Here's the finished product:

They're pretty yummy, I think we will be making these a lot.

Saturday night we dyed our Easter eggs. I baked the eggs this year, something I saw on Pinterest. I think it worked out well, I don't know, I don't eat hard boiled eggs unless they are in a super delicious Cobb salad. We had a marble egg kit, but seriously that mess was ridiculous, so we just did the plain colors. Naturally, I forgot to take a photo of the eggs after dyeing them. I did manage to snag a picture of the cupcake/frosting break after dyeing the eggs:

The kids were super excited about the Easter bunny coming and happily left him a bowl of carrots and a note. Aaron came in first thing yelling that EB came and Jill could not get over that he ate all of those carrots.

For breakfast I made Resurrection rolls. I found the recipe on Nicole O'Dell's site, it's super simple and they are really delicious. Plus, it's a great visual for helping explain Easter to the kiddos.

Church was our next stop, and for real, it was packed. The kids did super well though, considering how busy it was. I, on the other hand, did my best not to look around otherwise I would have panicked at the amount of people. Our church is still in the fundraising stage to build on our property, so we are in a temporary location inside a strip mall. We can really only fit 300 and well...we had a lot more than that on Sunday.

Don't we make an adorable family?!

After Church we headed to Mimi and Paw Paw's for lunch. I'm not even going to lie, Easter is my favorite food holiday because this girl loves ham leftovers. I promise you I will have hot ham and cheese sandwiches all week. After lunch we found out that EB stopped at Mimi and Paw Paw's house too! Paw Paw led the kids on a hunt all through the house to find the baskets.
They were so excited and couldn't wait to play with all of the fun toys EB left!

We had such a great weekend and hope you did as well!
