Ella and I made a cake to take to Nanny and Pop C's house tonight to share with everyone. She wanted a bunny rabbit like the ones Mimi and Nanny used to make for me when I was a little girl... that's a big concept around here these days~ me being a little girl, that is. However, because the girls have been playing in my pots and pans a bunch lately, I could only find one of my round cake pans. Since their traditional design requires 2 rounds we had to come up with another. I found this little bunny cake recipe online, and I think he turned out really cute.... only trouble with him is that no one could bear to cut him. It was either that or we had way too many other delicious sweets at our family gathering tonight.
When we arrived at church this morning I tried my best to get all four of the girls in one shot on the front steps. They would not all stand and look at the same time. This was the best I could do.
All the girls' Easter dresses were supposed to be just like Ella's, but when we tried them on for the very first time at 9am this morning
duh, I know better than that Maggie, Kate, and Sarah were swimming in theirs. I was lucky to be able to convince them to try something else, and even more blessed to have something equally cute. Hopefully they will grow into these by camp meeting time!
By the end of the evening they were still going strong and had switched over to hiding the eggs for the adults to find. It was cool out by that point so we resorted to sweat pants under the dresses. All the running, kite flying, egg hunting, and lessons they've learned this weekend are serving us well because they were sound asleep within seconds of hitting their little pillows.
Hope you all had a blessed and wonderful Easter!
