He is risen!

I know I'm a little late, but I hope everyone had a fabulous Easter and felt the true blessing the holiday represents.

Dustyn and I spent the weekend with both sides of the family- D's family on Saturday and my family on Sunday. And what would a family gathering be without the food you ask?? Well I don't know what it would be other than a bunch of hungry folks... But luckily we know how to do family gatherings right!!

I was in charge of desserts for Saturday. I made peanut butter cookies, brownies, and strawberry punch bowl cake.

Ok, so I have to admit it. I cheated on the brownies and cookies. The brownies were from a box and the cookies were from premade cookie dough.

This one here was my favorite. I made it with 2 layers each of pound cake, strawberry Jello, freshly picked strawberrys, and whipped cream.

Speaking of freshly picked strawberries, strawberry picking was part of my weekend, also. I went with the ladies of the Miller family Friday evening to Elliott Farms to do some pickin'.

 Sunday I made a veggie tray with dip, a fruit tray (also using my fresh straberries!) with dip, and dirt cake..

I forgot to take pictures of everything but the dirt cake...oops!

It was truely a great weekend and I am blessed in soooo many ways!!!


Since my camera was lost for most of Easter, I asked Katie to send me some of the pictures from Sunday. I could not call this an Easter post with out including my brother and sister-in-law's home and the beautiful spread they created for us to enjoy.
