My beautiful I take your hand, and we walk through the garden of life, may I be ever open to seeing the world through your eyes...full of innocent wonder, delight and joy. As you take my hand, and we walk through the garden of life, may you be ever open to seeing the world through my eyes...full of gratitude, wisdom and peace. May we be blessed on our 'ramblings' together. Love, Nana

Hoppy, Hoppy Easter!

Hoppy Easter, everyone!  It's been bunnies galore around here the past few days.  Just before school let out for the long Easter weekend, Aidan and Nana got together and created some fun bunny stuff for the kids in Aidan's kindergarten class...and decorated the 'Easter tree!

Working on 'bunny treats' for the kids...and the Easter tree!
 Bunnies, bunnies, everywhere!  Click here for the instructions on how to make the bunny juice boxes...

And Nana's very own cuddly bunny....

Nana's cute Bunny Boy!
A glorious Easter Sunday morning greeted us...happy chickadees singing in the trees, squirrels running around the garden, the earth coming alive with buds bursting out on the trees, and little blades of green grass popping up through the soil.  A perfect day for an egg hunt...

I smell chocolate!

Eating the 'stash'!
After collecting all the eggs left by the Easter bunny, it was back indoors for breakfast...

And after eggs and toast, what else but more chocolate...

Sharing with the Easter Bunny!
While browsing through Pinterest recently, Nana found a really cool idea for an Easter treat, that wasn't chocolate!  A icing bag filled with 'cheddar bunny crackers', dressed up to look like a big carrot!  Find the 'how to' here

After a busy afternoon playing in the park with Papa, and biking with momma and daddy, it was time for us all to get together for Easter dinner.  For dessert (the best part of the meal!) Aidan helped Nana make a yummy cake and cookies.

Yummy Coconut Cake
The coconut bundt cake was a 'Nana original', while the idea for the cookies, once again, was found on Pinterest and came from a great recipes site called Pennies on a platter

Yummy Easter Cookies!
Hope everyone had a 'hip, hoppity' Easter!
