Random Monday Memories #13 . . .

Today's post isn't about memories from the past,
but making new memories.

Easter was a stormy, cool, and wet day. 
 The lightning & thunder started before daylight
and continued all day & night!

We started a new Easter tradition.
I baked a bunny cake. 
My grandma Ruby liked to make rabbit cakes for Easter.
I think she would be pleased that I'm carrying on her tradition.
It turned out okay and I learned a lot from this first attempt.
I couldn't find skinny black licorice so I used mini chocolate chips
for the whiskers.

Ethan liked the cake, but didn't like getting the icing on his hands.
It was so funny!

So glad that you had a wonderful Easter. How fun to carry on a tradition with your grands :)
Hope your week is the best !

The cake looked cute and I bet it was good! Traditions are good to keep going for our younger generation to know that sense of belonging and family. We're very dry in the OKC area, but I knew if Easter couldn't make it rain, nothing would! I've never known an Easter when it wasn't cool, cloudy, or rainy!

My daughter made her grandson a bunny cake and that will be a good tradition.
We went to Memphis and got away from the rain for a short time yesterday. It looks like we are in for it for more storms all week.

We,too, started an Easter tradition this year. Not one I hope to continue. Because of the weather we had an Easter egg hunt in the house! I'm still finding them here and there.
