Hoppy Easter!

Our family had a wonderful Easter and hope you did too! We go to a bit of a zany church - Westminster Presbyterian in Burbank - and each year we have the most wonderful service. My favorite part of the service is singing the "Happy Song" by Chris Tomlin. But because our church doesn't do anything boring - as soon as the song starts the room exlpodes with beach balls flying through the air as adults and children sing, dance and hit beach balls up, across and around the sanctuary. See the below video for the song!

We had some fun with Easter this year and I made the boys this cute bunny sandwich - super easy!
You will need:
2 pieces of bread
baby carrots
bag of shredded zucchini (I used a bag of carrot/zucchini slaw)
gummy candy
Directions: Using a large drinking glass I pressed it down unto the bread to make the circles. We made cream cheese and jelly sandwiches - but you make peanut butter/ jelly, etc. Then I used whole baby carrots for the ears and a small slice for the nose. Finally I added shredded zucchini for the whiskers, blueberries for the eyes and gummy candy for the mouth. The boys loved it!

Quinn and I also had an "Easter date" and made these yummy candy kabobs! Quinn has a major sweet tooth so he loves to bake together. We bought the rabbit peeps, the chick peeps and the peanut butter cups at the store. But we made the chocolate dipped marshmallows.
You will need:
Sprinkles of various colors/shapes
Chocolate chips
Wood Skewers
Directions: Melt the chocolate chips in the microwave - about 2 minutes on 50% power (don't use full power or they will burn). Then we rolled the marshmallows into the liquid chocolate and then dipped them into the sprinkles.

I also made an Easter Brunch invitation for my Etsy store. I love retro graphics and I illustrated my own bunny for the invitation.

Below are a few more photos of our Hoppy Easter!
