Easter Decor and More

< A few little bunnies add some springtime life to Easter decorations >

Wow, is it really almost the end of April already??  I know that Easter is late this year, but somehow I cannot believe that it has snuck up on us so quickly.  With Easter Sunday fast approaching, I am happy to share some of the decorations and treats that are helping me prepare for this upcoming holiday.  I have enjoyed looking at all the little bunny decorations I put up in our house a few weeks ago, and the combination of pastel colored eggs and other spring decorations makes me feel like a kid waiting for the Easter Bunny again.  In fact, should I head to the mall and take a picture with the fluffy white rabbit?  Well, maybe if any of my nephews go, I will have to head there with them just for fun.  This coming Sunday, my husband and I will be headed to church for and Easter service, and then off to enjoy a home-cooked Easter feast with family.  What are your plans?  Whatever you do, have an egg-traordinary weekend!  Now, time to go dust off those Easter baskets...!
