Happy Easter!

Happy Easter, everyone!

Our Easter celebration began last night, as we did the Resurrection Cookies with Ella. It ended up being a wonderful learning experience for Ella. Basically, they are meringue cookies, so they involve like 15 minutes with the hand mixer. Reid took over the mixing while I was tending to Cooper. While I was gone from the kitchen, Reid said that Ella was recounting all the aspects of the Easter story that we had taught her! So, I think this will be something we make a tradition in our family!

This morning, Ella and Cooper enjoyed their Easter baskets before we left for church, and we got a few pictures. Here are my little Easter cuties :)

After church, we headed over to Papa and Yaya's house for lunch, an egg hunt, some family time, and then dinner! We had a great time spending time with Papa, Yaya, Aunt Kelly, Aunt Leah, Uncle Chris, my Uncle, Aunt and cousins, and a couple of Leah's friends. It was a beautiful day outside, and we had a wonderful Easter!

And can I just take a moment to brag about the Easter Bunny cake that I made today? I am so excited with how it came out, and wanted to share :)
