Easter Sweets And Other Fun

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter! I think it was our busiest Easter ever. On Thursday, my little guy had a Kindergarten Easter party at school and I was drafted to make cupcakes. I cheated and used a cake mix. I don't think the kids noticed :)

On Friday, each of my kids had friends over for a total of 9 kids in the house. I had pizza, chips, soda and popsicles for them, which they promptly finished off in no time. It was beautiful outside so they all ran up and down and throughout the house. It sounded like a herd of screaming elephants came for a visit.

Saturday was buying summer clothes for my oldest and a visit to the spa (courtesy of an anniversary gift certificate from my husband) for me and my girls. That night, our neighbors who raise dogs for show, let us come by and socialize the puppies. That was lots of fun! The kids didn't want to leave and there were lots of pleas of "Oh, we've got to buy one!" Hard to resist, let me tell you. There were so cute!

Then Sunday was Easter. We had an Easter egg hunt, colored eggs and ate lots of candy! I made a bunny cake for dessert for my mother in law, who did dinner.

Here are some pictures I managed to take:

This one wouldn't leave my husband's side. I had to peel my husband away when we left. It was a close one!

So cute! I just wanted to hug them all at the same time.

The cupcakes for my son's party. I managed to take this picture in my car on the way to school to drop the cupcakes off (I was parked at the time!)

Hoppy Easter Bunny cake. My daughter decorated him. I think she did a great job!

Oh my, I can see why those puppies were hard to resist---they really are adorable.

Sounds like you had a wonderful Easter. You (and your daughter) did a great job with the cupcakes and the bunny cake. It's so cute I would find it hard to cut into it!

Thanks Beth! I enjoy letting my daughter decorate. She's much better than I am!

Hope your Easter was wonderful too.
