I’m so happy that this weeks topic for Rory’s Tuesday Coffee Chat is Easter. And the quote is for Bianca at Bits of Bee for her Quotable Bits!!! 🙂

Here is my recap of our wonderful, happy, colorful, fun and bright Easter weekend.

Colored eggs, hot cross buns, Easter baskets and a Pound cake... oh my!!!


My first attempt at Hot Cross Buns and may I say they were a big hit!

* I have to thank Ado at the Momalog and Ree Drummand of The Pioneer Woman for sharing their recipes and for giving me the urge to bake. I forgot how much I really enjoy it. It was fun!!!

I'm never making a pound cake from a boxed mix again. Made this from scratch and it came out heavenly!!! Recipe to follow!


My girls having fun coloring and decorating Easter eggs.


After coloring, before decorating...we had sequins, glitter and stickers. Awesomeness!!! 🙂


The only picture I got of the three of them together. They never sit sit or stand still long enough for me to get a good sibling shot!


A dip in the pool Easter Sunday afternoon!!!

Ran into one of my mommy friends and her kids (a school friend of middle daughter’s from her old school) and it was great to catch up and speak in German for a couple of hours… of course that led to laughs later on as my accent always comes out thicker after a while of speaking in my native language and my English comes out funny here and there!!!

    oh that pound cake…I could have survived my weekend much, much better if I had that! I haven’t eaten much in the last couple of days, but I think I could devour the whole thing right now. LOL
    Their eggs are so, sor pretty. love ’em.
    and a dip in a pool sounds like a wonderful Easter Sunday past time.
    So glad that your holiday was so wonderful!

    I feel kind of bad to have had such a wonderful time and knowing you had your hands full with your three sick kiddos. Hope they are all on the mend. I’d be happy to whip you up a pound cake and pack it in dry ice and then ship it off to you. 🙂

    Great pictures! Looks like a fun Easter 🙂
    P.S. My kids never sit or stand still long enough for a decent pic with all of them together either.

      It sure was a great weekend. I usually get better candid shots of the kids than a good one of all three of them. The bane of a mother’s existence!!! 😉

    Such bright and beautiful Easter eggs! It looks like you had a fabulous Easter weekend, and swimming outdoors? Nice! Thanks for linking up again this week!

      Thanks. Yes, we are very lucky to be able to go swimming pretty much year round! 🙂
