Full to the brim

We celebrated Easter Sunday at my sisters house today


The tiny but intrepid warriors set off on an easter egg hunting adventure around the backyard.


It was a bit of a slow start, but they caught on pretty quickly once they realised that they could fill up their little carry bags with chocolate!

The table was set for a wonderful roast lamb and roast beef lunch with vegies and plenty of gravy........ but I had to save room for dessert

Homemade pavlova with peppermint crisp........


Homemade Creme Brulee.....

....and homemade Mars Bar Cheesecake (I had to bring a slice home because I just couldn't possibly fit in any more)!

Happy Easter!

Yummy! That Mars bar cheesecake looks scrumptious!!!! You're lucky to live close to your family. Mine are all in Gosford almost 2000kms from here! I've always been a sort of only child (being the youngest by 12 years)and was never with other kids for Easter. When I have my own kids one day I'm going to make an egg hunt a tradition. I'm also going to sit the kids down afterwards and tell the Easter Story, and then get them to choose one toy to take to a local charity and get them to each drop it into the bin. If Xmas is all about giving, so should Easter!!

Anywho! Love Manda! xx

Is it wrong that I am sitting drooling over those desserts and its only 7.30am? Could I please adopt your family? Mine are all wheat/egg/nut intolerant/allergic or diabetic and we never get have good stuff like that anymore!!

Your nephews look so cute having their easter egg hunt.
