a few more Easter cookies!

Its almost Easter, and as a Christian this day is so exciting for me.  I cant wait for our church's first Easter service.  To make it even more special, Jay and I are getting baptized tomorrow during service.  I was baptized as an infant, but I want to make it my own conscious choice this time.  Dying away from my old self and rising again to live for Christ.  It is going to be awesome!  So while the Easter baskets are so fun, and giving Oliver some of these cookies will be great, we are making sure to stop and remember what Easter is all about.  Hallelujah, He is risen!

These turned out fun, the colors were bright and cheerful. :)

Bunny face 'n booty :)

carrot cookies...I love these for some reason! I get a kick out of making cookies that look like other foods, lol.

Sorry for the poor lighting, these little guys were a very pretty yellow.  I can't wait til Oliver sees the big ducky.  Its HUGE!!

I loved doing these crosses, but had a problem with my dough spreading. Oh well, they are still neat :)

A friend ordered pig cookies for her sons for their baskets.  Carly, I hope they liked them! I thought they turned out cute...I just hope they dont look like pink hippos!

And her sons also like John Deere, so I made these eggs in those colors for them.

A good friend at church ordered these for her 3 girls.  I cant wait to hear their reactions when they see them in their baskets :)

and I had to take a pic of the end result of an Easter platter.  I think it turned out very pretty :)

and if you've made it this far looking at all my Easter creations, heres a little treat for you :)

My precious little Oliver..who got ahold of a coupler and tip of black icing!!  ahhh boy.

Boy was he proud of himself!

and one more, because I think the many pictures I got of my dad and Oliver are precious...

They went for a little walk outside while I finished up some orders.  Oh, this makes my heart happy :)

and I just realized that I forgot to take a pic of the whole bunch of mini-cookies I did. Oh well!  Some are in Oliver's Easter eggs so I'll try to get a pic before he eats them all.  (Some kids get candy in their eggs, some get money...mine gets cookies! anyone surprised??) :-D

Happy Easter everyone!!!!!!!!!
