At the Cross by Hillsong Oh Lord You’ve searched me You know my way Even when I fail You I know You love me Your holy presence Surrounding me In every season I know You love me I know You love me At the cross I bow my knee Where Your blood was shed for me There’s no greater love than this You have overcome the grave Your glory fills the highest place What can separate me now You go before me You shield my way Your hand upholds me I know You love me You tore the veil You made a way When You said that it is done And when the earth fades Falls from my eyes And You stand before me I know You love me I know You love me I wish you all a blessed Easter. Love, Molly
The girls each picked out a pastel cross to decorate. First, they covered it with mod podge, then they sprinkled it with sugary glitter and embellished it with paper flowers and a little banner that said "Easter Blessings"
The girls' crosses came out so beautiful.
We can't wait to do it again next year!

The party was a success! Over the next couple of days I will share pictures from the big day. We all had so much fun. After the last guest left, Lilly said, "Mommy can we have another Easter party next year?" We definitely have to make this an annual event!

Our Easter party is quickly approaching. Today I finished wrapping up the favors. I bought candy necklace kits at Walmart for $3.00 for a pack of 8! They were wrapped in cheap-o wrappers so I decided to repackage them. I used bright pink polka dot cellophane bags I also picked up at Walmart for $1.88 for a pack of 6 (they are made by Wilton to wrap lollipops with) I put the candy beads, candy bunny charm and elastic string into the little bags, tied them up with white ribbon (included in the package of cello bags) and finished them off with stick-on felt daisies I bought this year at Hobby Lobby. I piled them in an Easter pail that I love. It is Target circa 2007 :)

Lilly saw a bed with a net over it in one of my decorating magazine and said she wanted one over her bed. We headed to Ikea and picked one up a couple of weeks ago. I made a banner to hang over it. I think her bed looks like a sweet dream!

I dressed up my sideboard this morning and thought I would share. I got that lace tablecloth at an antique shop in Mt Dora. I love it! The china is my grandmother's wedding china she just it handed down to me. It is so lovely. I am using it for Easter dinner this year.
I also wanted to share my latest clothing obsession. I found this beautiful top yesterday at Forever 21 for only $19.80! It is one of my all time favorite shirts. I don't usually buy multiples of clothes, but I think I have to buy another one just to have a backup replacement in case one gets a hole or stain. The picture below doesn't give it justice. It really looks like a vintage blouse. I can't wait to wear it to church with some of my favorite floral skirts and some pearls. Have a great weekend! Love, Molly

I mentioned in a previous post that Lilly and I are hosting a girly Easter party. Here are the invitations I made. This week I am working on getting the items together for the scavenger hunt the girls will be doing in the yard. Each guest will be given a list of items to find hidden around the yard. Some of the items include...
a bouquet of daffodils
(Lilly and I made these using a "Creatology" foam kit from Michaels) an egg shaped like a bunny and a carrot filled with candy
(found these cute candy holders at the Dollar Tree)a fluffy baby chick
(a variety of yummy colors can be found a Hobby Lobby)
Lilly and I are having so much fun getting things ready for the big day. I will be posting the favors and craft projects soon, so come back and visit! Love, Molly
