I live in the grand state of Texas! I' love Texas!! I've learned it's hotter than the devils tongue...more beautiful than a fresh baked cup cake....and friendlier than the high school counselor that gave you the creeps. Come share my adventures in life. I'm a mother of three beautiful one's & two hairy ones (my doggies). I must also mention that I'm the CEO of the family. I've learned that life is more than 'my fine shirt just got soaked' bath times, 'hey we are so running fashionable late again' swimming lessons, your most recent 'break down' in the laundry room (yes I'm talking to you; now put down the dryer lint slowly), the latest 'does my butt look big' moment, or even that rock awesome meal you cooked last night. Life is random, sexy, unbelievable, predictable and darn cool. Lets get crafty, create, explore Texas, and have some pretty sweet experiences!

Fun and Meaningful Easter Ideas

There are always two sides to Easter–> The Fun Bunny and the deeper meaning of The Resurrection of Jesus Christ.  Our family tries to incorporate both in our celebration of the holiday.  Coming up with fun Easter ideas can sometimes be a challenge- here are some to try…

The Resurrection:

Every year our family makes Resurrection Rolls.  This is super easy and really gets to the meaning of why we celebrate.  To make your own click this link for SundaySchoolpages how to.  Another fun Easter idea we did this year was we had a family lesson on Christ using different scriptures.  I found this fabulous idea at SugarDoodle > you place an item (such as a nail) in an egg with a scripture.  Our kids had a ball and couldn’t wait to open the next egg.

The Fun Bunny:

We always do an Easter Egg Hunt.  The key to a successful and fun Easter egg hunt is to hide the eggs according to their age level.  You can color code the eggs so that each child only goes for their color(s) or you can do a free for all and what you get is what you get.easter post 3

Our family also loves to eat bunny pancakes…something about a shaped pancake always tastes oh so good!  You can do this using either a home made recipe or a mix you buy at the store.  Grapes make great eyes, strawberries add red to the ear or mouth and whipping cream and nutella are great choices to give your bunny some color!easter post 4easter post 2

Next comes coloring eggs because coloring boiled eggs is a must at any age and when the fun is over gobble them up in this yummy potato salad.  What are some of your fun Easter ideas and favorite holiday traditions?
