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!!!
