EASTER EGG NEST ~ that you eat!

How was everyone's Easter? Did you eat lots of food? Easter egg hunt? church? 

Ours was wonderful! We started off going to church on Saturday night. It was a great service where we learned about the story found in Mark 5:22-42 where Jesus goes to the house of a little girl who has died. He raises the dead girl to life again. I learned that when Jesus sat on the bed next to the lifeless girl's body,  all he said was "Talitha koum!" which in Aramaic means "Honey, wake up" like he was waking her up from a nap. That's how Jesus sees death, like a nap. We look at it as a permanent thing. He looks at it as a pause before eternity.  Wow! What a great way to look at something that is a little scary.

Then, Easter Sunday, we all slept in (which is always wonderful). Then we all worked on our big Easter dinner. We baked a ham with brown sugar topping, pineapple stuffing, potato casserole,  grilled asparagus, shrimp fried rice and Red Lobster's garlic bread. I promise I will share the recipes to some of these wonderful dishes later.

The girls and I made a sweet cookie recipe that I found on Pinterest that I wanted to share with y'all today. It was fun to make and they are so darn cute I had to share!
