How was Your Easter Sunday?

So I hope really everyone had a wonderful Easter Sunday!

I was able to spend the beginning of my day with my DH, his mother, his aunt, and his grandmother. We had a lovely brunch at his aunt house; which included estrada, bacon, penne shrimp alfredo, fruit salad, cinnamon rolls, and (my favorite) an Easter Bunny cake!

I had never tried estrada before, and personally found it very strange. I really loved the flavor, however, the texture is not one I liked very much. Maybe I'll have to recreate it to my liking. :) I mainly ate the penne shrimp alfredo, because it was delicious! Thank you Momma Brady and Matthew for making it for me, I really loved it! I enjoyed the bacon and the fruit salad, too. I didn't try the cinnamon rolls, but they smelled really good. And now the Easter bunny cake created by my DH's aunt! I loved it! My mother used to make cakes like that for me and my sisters when we were young; and I loved having that little trip down memory lane this year seeing as I wasn't able to celebrate it with my family. Thank you Aunt Patty for the cake, it was wonderful! Also I wasn't able to get a picture of the whole bunny cake before it was disambelled and devoured. :) But I do have a picture of the round bunny head! I'll update this post later with the pictures.

My DH's mother and aunt also put together a cute Easter bucket for us this year. It was filled with jelly beans, yellow and purple peeps, two chocolate bunnies, two sweettart candy dispensers, and Disney's movie: Tangled! I didn't get a picture of the bucket, but I was able to use those items to fill up the two empty basket that I had at home. :) So now we each have our own basket filled with candy and all of our other goodies.

Today we also celebrated my mother-in-laws birthday. I forgot to pick up a card for her, but luckily I didn't forget her present. I had added some of the Easter candy to her gift, instead of getting her a gift and an Easter basket. She didn't mind. :) I hope she had a good birthday, and I wish that we could have stayed and celebrated longer with her. But unfurtunately, DH had to work at 5:00 pm today, so we had to leave early. But tomorrow we are planning on visiting them again, and maybe dying the eggs that we didn't do today.

I..... ended up in the woods with my neighbor and we built a ramp. Easter isn't so special for me obviously.

Hi cutie pie! You're right the strata was a weird texture - obviously it needs some tinkering with. But glad you guys enjoyed the bunny cake - very old school but it wouldn't be Easter without it. Thanks for sharing my birthday with me. Love you both very much - Momma Brady
