Easter goodies!

Good morning! I hope you all had a very happy Easter!!!

We went to my parents yesterday afternoon for a ham dinner....but there was a little mishap! Mom has a new oven and she thought she turned the oven on and two hours later to take it out....the oven was ice cold...she never pushed start, so the oven was never on! My Dad just wanted to go out to eat, but we thought since the food was already there, we would just wait and have the ham! My DH and I took the kids to the beach for a while to play and they had so much fun!

Here are my two kiddos posing with their baskets before they really ripped into them! (Isn't that mean???? But they know the drill! Pictures first, then have fun....LOL)
Here is my beautiful daughter at my parents house posing in her new Easter outfit!!

Here is my son and I in their backyard before we changed into our play clothes to play some basketball and go to the beach before dinner!!!

This is the cake that my kids and I made! We had all good intentions to break out the cricut cake machine, but then we just had a vision and this is what we came up with. The bunnies on top are chocolate pops just stuck into the top of the cake!

Check out the 3 layers....isn't that cool, that is the first time that we did 3 layers with different colors!
Here are some quick cards that I made for the kids.....this one is for my son...everytime his hair grows out I call him my furry baby chick! I used Simply Charmed for this but elongated it on the Gypsy to make it look like an egg shape!

This is the card I made for my daughter...I used Doodlecharms for the bunny and basket and MS all occasion cake art for the grass! I did some criss cross embossing to make it look like a basket!These are milk cartons that I made for my husbands squad at work! I had SO MUCH fun making these! I got the directions HERE at great source of inspiration! I used PP from Echo park and cut the scallops using Lacy Labels and the bunny is from MS seasonal cake art!I filled them with malted milk eggs and wrapped them in little cello bags with a cute tag from Once Upon a Princess! What a cute little treat idea!!!So, that is all for now! We had such a great time preparing Easter treats for family and friends and we had a wonderful Easter! I hope you all did too!!!!


  1. REally I'm gonna get you your own show for crafts...
    I love it and Sami how sweet is her dress and Christopher so handsome how tall is he now.
    Talk to you soon lots of stuff to catch up on..
    Glad it was a good day

  2. Wow that cake!!! Beautiful and I think you came up with something much better than from the Cricut cake machine. Beautiful inside too.

    Your little bunny cartons look like something Martha would have in her magazine. Perfectly coordinated and tagged!

    Your kiddos are so cute. I can't believe you tortured them by making them pose for a picture while holding the Easter loot!!
