Easter Sunday

We had a really lovely Easter.
The Easter Bunny came and left lots of treats and prizes. The big one was a care bear themed build a bear and gift card for each kid. There were lokai bracelets, swim goggles, and some clothes, too. Chocolate bunnies were a big wish and he delivered those!

Charlie was excited about a care bear blind bag!

Sarah Graves was pleased with a new outfit!

Flowering the cross at church and I was proud that we had some flowers blooming to bring.

Charlie and Livy looked so sweet waiting for church.

Love these two looking so sweet in their Easter best.

I feel like we won the lottery getting a cute picture of all 3 looking so sweet!

Headed off to hunt eggs after church.

Love my sweet family!

We hit the lottery twice and got a cute picture of all of them with Lovie and Pops!

Nay and Livy so happy!

The kids were pleased with all the prizes that people who love them sent them. There were Easter themed treats and goodies as well as small toys, gift cards, and clothes. 

We had a simple lunch of ham, grits, strawberry and spinach salad, and croissants. The kids were happy and I think the adults enjoyed it too. 

After giving up sweets for Lent, I was excited for the desserts! My favorite was the lemon icebox pie that Aaron made! 

Maw Maw wanted the kids to have lots of treats for Easter, so she sent them this cookie cake and ice cream, and some other treats! They really enjoyed the cookie cake!

 I saw this idea for a fruit pizza decorated like an Easter egg and knew we had to try it. Jeanne' decorated it and it turned out really cute. It was the only thing Charlie would eat during lunch! He said he was only eating sweets on Easter!

I wanted to try this idea for a carrot patch chocolate cake. It was tasty. Apparently Charlie waited as long as he could to eat some and he and Livy ended up digging in on their own!

My favorite part of the day is the part that I didn't take any picture of! We sat outside enjoying the gorgeous weather, eating dessert, and watching the kids play. It was relaxing and so nice to enjoy time together.
