John 11:25

Friday, April 13th.
Hmmm, good thing I don't believe in superstitions.

Well today is my sister's birthday! Yay! So HAPPY BIRTHDAY, CHELSEA! :)

So we all know that last weekend was Easter, and that's pretty sweet.
Anyways, I found this verse the other day and I thought it was cool:
Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever
believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live,"
John 11:25
Lets face it, we usually overlook the real reason behind the Easter weekend. Now I'm not pointing fingers, I admit to being one of those people. Here's how I see it: In the end, are you really going to remember how many chocolate bunnies you got? Or how many Cadbury Creme Eggs you ate? And who's going to remember if the ham was dry or the mashed potatoes got cold? Nobody. Give it a week and none of that will be important anymore.

I, for one, will remember that I'm a sinner who can freely say I'm saved from death. And I have a home waiting for me that's far greater then this place we currently call home.
So what was so great about your Easter? Maybe something a little deeper than overdosing on chocolate...
BUT, don't get me wrong. I do love the food aspect of Easter! It's one of the best occasions for cupcakes making. And so that is just what I did.
Who loves lame jokes? This kid does, so here's a knee-slapper for ya :)

What do you get when you pour hot water down a rabbit hole?

Ahaha. Haha. Ha. Funny right? I thought so.
Okay, enough joking around. I am a serious people. So cereal. Like this video

You better have laughed at that...if you didn't, you are an awful human being.
Only jokes, I love you all.

FOCUS! Stop distracting me! So a few weeks ago a lady I work with asked me to make her some Easter cupcakes for her grandkids. And I decided upon the bunnies. I've made them before so I figured I could do it again. And the bunnies have improved!

First Bunnies (from over a year ago)
New Bunnies :)
I personally think the new ones are a lot cuter...but that's coming from a girl who thinks food is cute.

Alright so that was the first topic for this post. On to number two!

Rice Krispie Easter Eggs!

Well, usually my mother and I create Rice Krispie nests...but things change. Haha, well here's the truth. My mom made the nests...with left over Rice Krispies from Christmas (You're welcome, mom, for sharing that). And as one could guess...they were a tad stale tasting. So naturally we ate the nests and made some eggs instead (with new rice krispies).

And what nest of eggs is complete without a hatchling? None. So let me introduce you to my little friend. Mr. Littlest Pet Shop duck. Isn't he just the cutest? I think so.
Well this is what our house looked like at Easter...good times, good times.

Oh, and today is National Blame Somebody Else Day. So...this is all your fault!!!!
I'm sorry, that was mean. Forgive me? I'll bribe you with cupcakes! :)
Alrighty, well I'm on my way to Winnipeg for a Kutless concert....and I guess I should start packing...

Good bye, all. Have a fun Friday the 13th!
Sydney <3
