Our Easter weekend was wonderful. We hosted Easter dinner for 17 people and the food was delicious. Here are a few snapshots...
Cute Bunny Fun
Easter baskets and gifts
A storm a couple weeks ago knocked a little bird's nest out of a tree. Thankfully, I didn't see any birds eggs around it. But it made the perfect place to put some of our dyed Easter eggs as a decoration.
Our Butter Lamb
I made this lamb with this mold and used honey butter we made ourselves from heavy cream

Our Easter egg hunt at home. I could have watched this all day. I am so glad Sweet Pea started walking recently. She was so proud of herself finding eggs and had so much, and she was so adorable.
Our Easter Dinner
I wish I could have gotten some better pictures, but the hungry masses were looming. Dinner included two maple brown sugar glazed hams, sweet potatoes with oatmeal crumble topping, honey glazed carrots, fried apples, baby greens salad with a homemade balsamic dijon maple syrup vinaigrette, potato casserole, broccoli casserole, pretzel salad, Hawaiian rolls, watergate salad, and a cross monkey bread.
The dessert area had some homemade sugar cookies, our family favorite chocolate buttermilk cake, Easter candy molds (like those here but not as pretty or worthy of a close-up picture) and of course a monkey bread cross which was with the dinner food as it is considered a main course food in our family :)
