Painting, cupcakes, and eggs

The painting is all done and we love it. It makes the house look like a home. I love the color we picked. Here is a picture of the kitchen:



We still have so many plans for the kitchen. We would like new lighting, wood floors, and all black appliances. We can only do a little at a time.
Today, I started the day by being the Easter bunny and purchasing a few more items for the kid's Easter baskets. I am so excited about all of the things they got. When I got home, I started on the cupcakes. I made some lemon cupcakes with Marshmallow Frosting and some Carrot Cake cupcakes with Cream Cheese icing. YUM! I hope everyone enjoys them tomorrow. I really can't get enough of baking cupcakes! It is so fun!


The kids and I decorated eggs this afternoon and tonight they will put out their baskets for the Easter bunny to fill.


I plan on reading some of the Easter story out of the Bible to Jaden tonight. I really want them to know the reason for Easter. So far, I asked Jaden and he said, "Jesus". So, I know I am on the right track. I decided not to take them to the Easter Bunny this year. I really want to enforce the reason for why we are celebrating. They don't like the Easter Bunny anyway!


Have a great Easter and don't forget to celebrate Jesus' resurrection all day tomorrow!

You're killing me with the cupcakes. I'm just scrolling your blog looking at cupcakes. I may have to find your house and move in. :) Lucky for you Florida's a long walk.
