Easter 2017

Our Easter celebration this year was quiet and cozy. It was just the five of us, and although we missed our Madison, we were happy she was enjoying a happy and blessed Easter in Denmark with Nicolas and his family. : )

Saturday we colored eggs...

And they turned out pretty, pretty, pretty!

We lit our Jelly Bean candle too.
And we loved our pretty Easter wishes from some very dear friends. : )

We had our special Easter dinner Saturday night.
I set the table while Steve cooked the venison tenderloin...

And it was delicious.

Dessert was Peyton and Flynn's bunny cake...chocolate cake with peanut butter icing.

We watched our favorite Easter movie...

Read our favorite Easter Bunny book...

And set out the snack for him. : )

Such good sports I have!

Easter Sunday dawned bright and beautiful.
Flynn and I enjoyed some time outside while everyone else got ready for Mass.
She was thrilled to find the first of her very favorite flowers.

Her dandelions.

Easter 2017.

Meanwhile, across the ocean, my Madison was also attending Easter services.

You can read more about her first ever Danish Easter on her blog over here.

Mass was beautiful.
We went to brunch at a favorite restaurant after...
Then we came home and searched for baskets!
The remainder of the afternoon was spent playing with new toys, reading new books, taking cozy naps, and snacking on yummy Easter chocolates.

I hope your Easter was happy and blessed, my friends.
Thanks for stopping by!

  13. Your Easter looks like it was just wonderful and everything it should be! So happy you all had a nice day. We were traveling over Easter this year and I have to admit I was truly missing home. I'm so grateful my family is gathering this Sunday for a belated Easter celebration. John and I colored eggs yesterday at my parents house (with PAAS of course : ) Needless to say the chocolate & peeps & jelly beans will be lingering around a little while longer. I wish I could join you on your early morning walks, let me tell ya! Peyton's bunny cake looks divine, too! xo


Thanks so much for saying hello!
