Cowboy Easter Fun

newsletter_headerjpg - 2As a mom, Easter is a fun time to let the kids play with their food. Dying eggs, eating the ears off chocolate bunnies, hunting plastic eggs filled with candy. I thought I’d share a few cute western-flavored ideas I discovered recently. (Disclaimer – I readily admit to stealing all of these ideas from Pinterest. None of these are my own.)

And for those of you who are super crafty (not me), you can make your own western-style chocolate bunnies. I even found the mold available on Amazon.

I also found these adorable horse cupcakes. The look so cute and would be easy enough that I might actually be able to pull them off. Just need some Nutterbutter cookies, some half peanuts for the ears, and some white and black icing for the face.

But of course, as every good cowboy knows, the true joy of Easter is celebrating the resurrection of our Savior. May you be blessed with many reasons to smile this Easter!

After the Sabbath, at dawn on the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to look at the tomb.

There was a violent earthquake, for an angel of the Lord came down from heaven and, going to the tomb, rolled back the stone and sat on it. His appearance was like lightning, and his clothes were white as snow. The guards were so afraid of him that they shook and became like dead men.

The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay. Then go quickly and tell his disciples: ‘He has risen from the dead and is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him.’ Now I have told you.”

So the women hurried away from the tomb, afraid yet filled with joy, and ran to tell his disciples.

~Matthew 28:1-8
