Happy Easter and the Lamb Cake!

The Easter cake above is one my Mom used to bake on Easter.  Now my daughter, Kristy bakes one for her family on Easter.  This year my granddaughter, Lauren, baked it and iced half the lamb's wool, and arranged the flowers below it and the Easter eggs on the table.   Isn't it a darling cake?  Yummy, too.  A wonderful Easter tradition that is being carried on. 

Below is Lauren.  She has long blond hair and won't let Kristy do anything with it, unless it's pulling it back for gymnastics.  The other night Lauren and her friend Emma had a "Girls night in...nails, hair and scary stories to finish off the night." with their moms. If I had a mom who could "do" my hair this beautifully, I'd be as happy as a clam!  In fact, Kristy taught me how to French Braid my hair.  Isn't Lauren beautiful? 

Here is Kristy's hair-do, I bet Lauren was the "hair-doer."  Very intricately done, Lauren, good job!

 Love the nail color, girls!  (Notice the hulu skirt - they both had them on.  Very fancy.)

And the spooky ending to the evening.

I love this idea, a nice way to spend the evening with the kids and friends, fun and easy.  Making memories, for sure!

From me and Katie, whether you are a believer or not, have a wonderful Easter Sunday, everyone!
