Easter Blessings

Happy Easter y'all! (a day late). Even though Easter was yesterday, it's never too late to celebrate Christ's resurrection! He is Alive!!
Don't ya just love celebrating? I know I do! Here's how we celebrated the day.
 Here's our Spring wreath hanging on the door. Simple and sweet.
 We hosted Russell's family for lunch on Sunday. I really enjoyed decorating the tables and place setting for each person.
 Dessert table featuring a "chocolate bunny". :)
 Everyone got a pale pink rose, monogrammed egg, and a chocolate carrot. Simple yet pretty. Thanks to Pinterest for the idea!
Russell and I were excited to go to Amy and Tony's church for Easter. Amy is the worship leader at BVCC. We have never been to their church to support her, so we thought we would go on Sunday.
 Me and my "honey bunny" before church. I just love him!
 Amy, Leighann, and me after church. Amy did awesome!
 We had honeybaked ham, scalloped potatoes, spinach casserole, deviled eggs, and homemade rolls.
 Saturday night, I was praying the rolls would rise and turn out well. It's pretty nostalgic to me because my Nanny made them so much, Mama and Kelly make them too. This was the first time I ever made them. They tasted just like their rolls! Hallelujah! HA!
 Here are the potatoes!
 We gave Leighann a few goodies and a cute Easter basket. Included in the basket was the purple bonnet she's wearing. She looks so cute!
 She was so excited to hunt eggs at our house.
 What did she find?
 Belle enjoyed being outside with us too. She had a happy Easter!
 Our little family I love so much!
 Tony, Leighann, and Amy
 Debbie, Ron and Lei Lei
Best friends!
We have now been friends for nine years! I can't believe how fast the time has gone! What a blessing she is in my life.
We had a great Easter. I couldn't help but remember just how much Jesus did for us on the day he died for us. Just how much he went through for us is unimaginable to me. I can't help but thank God for sending his son, Jesus, to die for us, shed his blood for us so that we may have eternal life. Jesus Loves You. Jesus loves me. Jesus loves all of us!
The women were terrified and bowed their faces to the ground. Then the men asked, "Why are you looking among the dead for someone who is alive? He isn't here! He is risen from the dead! Remember what He told you back in Galilee, that the Son of Man must be betrayed into the hands of sinful men and be crucified, and that He would rise again on the third day." Luke 24:5-7
