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!


  1. Very cute little girls. I bet they are a lot of fun and at times a hand full. Enjoy them, they grow up way too fast.

  2. I never had long hair and I'm so envious. Absolutely beautiful. And the lamb is too cute to eat. Happy Easter.

  10. That lamb cake turned out great. What a nice family tradition. Lauren really is a beautiful girl with such nice hair. It looks like everybody had a great girls night. Sounds like so much fun even for adult "girls".
