Getting Ready for Easter.
DD made a beautiful cake for daddy to take to work for a Relay For Life Cake Auction. She had seen the cake earlier in the day when we was preparing snake ideas for a church party on Saturday and we decided of course we couldn't take it but may make it for home. Then about an hour later daddy called and said he needed a cake! LOL...

 The cake raised over $25.00!! She was so happy!! 

Although all these pictures are for the "bunny" that's not all we celebrate!! We know and are grateful for Our Lord Jesus dieing on a cross for us!! My children have studied the Holy week this week and talked a lot about what happened to bring the events that happened for Easter. We are so loved and I am just so Grateful for His love for me!! 



  1. What a gorgeous cake! I love doing the Easter eggs each year. :)

  2. Isn't homeschooling great! One day you can school in the car and the next you can take off to go to the amusement park when everyone else is in school. I love the bunny cake. So cute! Happy Easter!

  3. Inspiration Station - Yes homeschooling is such a blessing!!! XOXO
