Easter weekend part two! The babies woke up Easter morning with a trail of marshmallows from each of their rooms down the stairs and into the kitchen where the table was filled with lots of goodies. We do this every year! Last year it was a trail of Easter eggs. The kids just get beyond excited and I love every second of it! Their baskets are filled with a few toys and the rest of the goodies are things like Praise Baby DVDs , The story of Easter books, Jesus loves me ~ I can read books, and so on. We try to keep the focus on Him but include a few seasonal goodies too! I will write a separate post with links to the special Easter things I found this year and just some of the things I use here at home to help teach the children about Him.

The bunny trail.....
These are Resurrection Eggs and served as the most wonderful teaching tool! The eggs are filled with props to offer a tangible way for children to understand why we celebrate Easter!
I highly recommend these!
Here are a few of the treats we had over the weekend and no I absolutely did not make any of these! :) I only wish I had that kind of time! But I thought they were so pretty and wanted to share them with you anyway!
Yummy Carrot Sugar Cookies
Hot Cross Buns
Tiny Easter Egg Cakes!
We decided not to even attempt going out to eat this year and decided to order a ham and all the sides and enjoy the beautiful weather at home! It was much easier and we did not have to sit in a crowded restaurant for brunch and I did not have to spend the entire day cooking and cleaning in the kitchen. It was wonderful and I was so thankful!
Here are a few pictures of the kiddies enjoying the beautiful weather we had on Sunday!
I will be back with part three and the sweetest pictures of the babies in their Easter outfits!
