Easter

I love Easter. It is my favorite of favorites and always has been. It's about hope. Life. Renewal. And also, candy and deviled eggs, both of which I love, amen.

Thanks to the unseasonably warm weather we've had this year, the lilacs are blooming. They don't usually bloom until May, so I took advantage and filled three centerpieces with lilacs. This one was my favorite.

My Easter also included these bad boys, which are just as delicious as they look.

We didn't get a family photo because guests showed up early and we ate during Tommy's nap time, meaning he was none too interested in photos. I did manage to snap these two photos of my favorite guys. We played outside for hours after we ate. Luke insisted on the world's longest game of tag, which is not so much fun when you have a stomach full of food, but we had an absolute blast all the same.

I too had lilacs as my centerpiece and I too love deviled eggs (and Cadbury eggs). Hooray for a yummy, family-filled Easter :)

I think my computer is going to short-circuit from all the drool on the keyboard. Those brownies look Scrumptious, capital S!
