Happy Easter!

It's been a busy few days.  I've got the ham and tomorrow I'm making cheesy potatoes and green bean casserole.  I boiled some eggs today to make deviled eggs tomorrow.  I made bunny, ducky and cross sugar cookies.  They look really cute. 

Today I made cupcakes, frosted them green and colored some shredded coconut green to put on top to look like grass.  Then I put jelly beans on top of the coconut grass to look like little eggs.  It looks kind of cute.

We're having Easter dinner between 4 and 5.  That gives the kids time to go and visit the rest of their other parents and grandparents.  I am patiently waiting for Rylie to get tired.  It's like she knows I want her to go to sleep and she is fighting it.  I want to get her basket put together so I can go to sleep.  She'll probably sleep in tomorrow so I could probably wait to do it in the morning.

Today she and I dyed 2 dozen eggs.  I thought it would take longer, but it's amazing how fast a 3 year old can color eggs.  I only got to do a few because she was just having too much fun dropping the eggs in the dye bath.  We colored them first with crayons.  I forgot how much fun dying Easter eggs is.  LOL  I made some really cute ones. 

Well, I hope everyone has a safe and happy Easter day.  God bless and  thanks for stopping by.
