Happy Easter ~~

Good Morning its been awhile since I last posted, hope
all is well with everyone. Things have been busy here
at the cabin .... have had friends and relatives visit in
the last couple of weeks, hubby and I have spent extra time
outside doing spring clean up and I came down with the dreaded
stomach bug. Well I'm right as rain now.....but its Thursday before
Easter and I'm behind in my preparations
.

I did color my eggs yesterday with an elderly neighbor I sit with
twice a week, I made up a batch of what we call bunny
snacks, and have just finished writing clues for my granddaughters
egg hunt. I will have the girls here tomorrow for Good Friday,
and then the whole family for dinner on Easter Sunday.
I still have to plan the menu, shop for the groceries, tidy up the house,
bake the bunny cake, and the rest of the desserts. I also need to pick
up some goodies for their baskets and gift bags.



~~ Bunny Snacks ~~

Pretzels, Melted White Chocolate & Pastel M&M's

So the question you might ask is .......why am I sitting at the computer, lol

Well the list is a little overwhelming, and I guess I'm procrastinating
for another little bit. But mostly its because I love visiting
all my friends on line and I wanted to wish you all
A Blessed Happy Easter !!

Hi Connie,

There always seems to be so much to do for each Holiday! No colored eggs this year at my house. The grown kids do there own and no litle ones yet. I used to make the bunny cake too - that will be back on the menu someday too.

I didn't get to the Seraph today, Chris's feet can only handle so many stores and she isn't it to period decor so I have to save that for a solo trip. It has changed so much recently!

Did you hear there are new shops in Marlborough? I talked to the gal in NE traditions and she said the manager of the Sturbridge NE traditions opened a prim shop where the curtain shop was and other things are going in the barn. Chris and I hope to go there in May.

Have a wonderful weekend and enjoy the fmaily time! hugs, Linda

Thanks Linda for the info on Marlboro, I will have to check it out. That was always a favorite place to go shopping and lunch with my hubby so it will be great to head out that way again.

Happy Easter to you! Have a great time with your grandchildren, there's sure nothing like them! We get a break this year, my daughter is hosting Easter dinner - this is the first time I haven't had to do it. Should be lots of fun. Dawn

Hi Connie,
Happy Easter to you and your family. We are still in sunny Florida and will probably be here until May. Hubby is having severe back problems so we're better off here where there's a medical facility on every corner. (Old folks' heaven!)
I love your photo of the dark brownish easter eggs. I'll miss coloring eggs with the grandchildren again this year, but we're gathering together with family and friends here and going to Easter brunch.
Have a wonderful Sunday and enjoy the egg hunt with your granddaughters.
All the best...Joanne

Wishing you a wonderful Easter. Enjoy your family and your granddaughters, I have never had the fun of making Easter Baskets or hiding eggs with my grandchildren because they lived too far away. I would have so enjoyed that! It will be hubby and I and our ham dinner and my heart full of memories of when my children were young. Love your colored eggs!
