Easter Bliss

We enjoyed a lovely Easter this year with the most blissful weather all weekend long.

Our family dyed eggs,

decorated cookies,

and ate lots of good food with both families.  We are fortunate that we live close to my family and Rich's family so that makes for lots of wonderful holidays, but way too much food.

My sweet SIL Robin is such a hospitable and gracious hostess and always makes the most amazing desserts.

Since we usually go to my family's first for dinner at holidays, I try to save enough room for some of her treats.

The girls enjoyed spending time with their cousins from both sides.

 And Rich and I enjoyed teaching a most important Easter lesson to our 3rd grade Sunday School class.
We usually have many more students on Sunday mornings, but this week our church choir performed the Easter Cantata and many of our students chose to see that instead.

As the day winded down,
I spotted this little fellow,
who was enjoying an Easter dinner of his own.

I hope you all enjoyed a wonderful Easter too.  Have a great week!

Beautiful outdoor photos. LUURVE the bunny! All the desserts look YUMMY. I made an old fav dessert for Easter that I haven't done in a while. PERFECT for summer bc there is NO cooking involved. A sweet cool treat. I will be sharing on my next post. ;-)

Ahh Miss Kim, what a lovely Easter posting! Your sweet girls are just precious! So pleased that all your loved ones are able to gather for such a special time of the year. And wasn't the awesome furry-faced visitor at the end of your day just the nicest surprise! Wow! Can't get any better than that!

Thank you for your visit to my place earlier and leaving your most generous remark about my latest work. :) Makes it all worthwhile when wonderful people like yourself say such kind things.

Closing for now..truly enjoyed my visit.

Blessings, Love and Tuesday Sunshine, Terri

Kim it looks like you all had a wonderful Easter weekend! Your girls are just beautiful!! I loved the look of those cookies, and how wonderful that you have so much family nearby, something we don't have at all and it makes me a little sad for our girls. Loved seeing the pics of your girls with their cousins:) Love your little bunny too, how cute is he/her and making an appearance at Easter, very kind of him / her:) Wishing you a lovely week Kim ~ Tina xx
