Thank you Robyn for this wonderful sweat treat idea. I have to admit I'm not much of a baker and this seemingly simple treat was a challenge. Once I realized I needed to freeze the balls of cake, so they wouldn't slide right down the sucker stick, it was so much easier. The kids were very patient and had so much fun decorating the treats after I figured out how to keep them together. These tiny treats pack in a huge sugar punch. I will be limiting the number we eat to one at a time or we will be bouncing off the walls. In the bottom picture, the kids are showing off the crafts they made earlier in the day with a few of the daycare kids.
I love Easter for its crafts, treats, baskets, and egg hunts. I really love Easter though because it is the holiday where I can remember that I serve a living God who loves me so much that He sent His only Son to die on the cross for the remission of my sins. I love that I have a living Savior who is in control of my life and who loves me and sees me through all walks of this life. It is a blessing to know that His hand is over our adoption and that the same God who loves me is loving my child in Africa! I can't wait to teach him about our Lord and Savior! I hope everyone is having an awesome Easter weekend.
