Easter Pretties

Classic Jelly Beans all in a row

Ahh, I'm such a GIRL!! Easter is a top fav of mine because I'm all about the pastels, Sunday hats, and pretty things. It's all the girly stuff twirled into one holiday. And for a girly-girl that lives in a houseful of BOYS, I claim this day.

My Easter basket I had as a girl growing up

Several of you have requested some quick and easy goodies for those moments when your time runs in the red. These Pastel Cake Cookies are EXTRA easy and very soft! They turn out super cute too, which is an added bonus. Enjoy!

The boys always look forward to pulling out
the BOOKS of the SEASON


Jesus loves me, this I know,
For the Bible tells me so.
Little ones to Him belong;
they are weak but He is strong.

Yes, Jesus loves me,
The Bible tells me so.

There is no easier way to see Jesus' love than on Easter Sunday. A little bird told me that Jesus died on a cross for us...THEN...rose again on the third day.

I can't imagine ever doing anything like that for people I didn't know or people who didn't like me. In fact, I can't imagine doing that for people that I do know...

In our self-absorbed world, it is {extra} refreshing to hear the Easter story and SEE such a massive love! This is why we celebrate. It's time for RENEWAL and FRESH BEGINNINGS of this season!

Yes, these cheesy ducks stay
because they were my first Easter decor
as a young married girl!

Sounds like we need to get you a girl ;) Were those cookies easy enough that I might get more before Easter? And I love that picture of the boys reading together. They all look so happy!

One thing you have really inspired me to do is to make the most of each Holiday Celebration for my kids. Your boys are so lucky to have such a fun Mom! I love Easter too and the true meaning behind it!

I love Easter too- such a special and spiritual time for me after the long fast of lent. I love being reminded of the renewal of Spring and Gods renewed love for all of us. Now I just need some kiddos to egg hunt with and we'll be all set :o)

I love Easter for so many reasons - a fresh start, renewal, HOPE, and the loveliness of springtime!

We watched "Peter Rabbit" over and over on the weekend while we decorated and baked. Stop by my blog to see the pretty Easter bread!

I love all your feminine touches, Lisa, in your male-surrounded world! The egg wreath is adorable. So are those cute little cookies (not to mention your boys in their matching clothes). Cute cute cute cute cute.
