happy Easter!

We hope you had a wonderful Easter! 

Aidan woke up bright & early this morning to see what the 
Easter Bunny brought him!

After checking out all of his goodies in his basket, we made Resurrection rolls for breakfast!

What's a Resurrection roll you ask?

While the Easter Bunny is okay & all the candy & eggs are fun.. 
we want Aidan to know the real meaning of Easter, which is Jesus' Resurrection!

So.. we took a marshmallow, which represents Jesus' body.. dipped it in oil, cinnamon & sugar, which represents the oil & spices used to anoint Jesus' body after he died.. then we wrapped the marshmallow in a crescent roll, which represents the tomb that Jesus was put in after his death. 

When the rolls are done baking.. take a bite.. Jesus is gone! He is risen! 

Aidan was so fascinated with this..
love the picture below.. "where are you Jesus?" he was saying :)

After church, we went to my Dad's for a nice Easter dinner.
Aidan & Ava were patiently waiting all afternoon to start their annual egg hunt..
here they are scoping out all the eggs in the backyard!


I actually got to hide the eggs this year, it was fun to watch Aidan try to find them all!

Mommy's favorite picture:

Helping each other find all of the eggs..

CANDY time!!!

After the hunt, we had dessert.. 
creme brulee cupcakes,

& banana split cupcakes!
They were SOOOO good & so pretty I had to take a picture!

By the time we left at 7:30, Aidan was completely passed out!

I'd say it was a great Easter! :)
