Easter

Hello all! Hope your Easter was wonderful and that your spirits are renewed as mine are! Jesus Christ has risen and THAT is a really great thing! I hope and pray each and every one of you know what that means on a personal level.

We had a fine weekend ourselves, but I must confess I was in a major funk at the end of last week. Just a bad mood, no reason. THANK GOODNESS I'm over it!!! And I can now recommend with confidence the best cure for a sour mood. There are two things 1) going a long walks and 2) cleaning your house. It took some motivation (that was hard to conjure up), but those two things definitely did the trick! By Easter morning I had pep in my step again.

Here's a little look at our Easter day....


A little egg hunting before church...


Lunch at Aunt Lu's...



Couldn't get it together for a family picture...Oh well...


Aunt Lu prepared a beautiful feast...salmon...


salad...


rice...


and I made these yummy coffee toffee bars, a Tasty Kitchen recipe.


Captain Steve and his buddies spent the afternoon on the river in his new boat, affectionately named "Dumb Head". Our house looks like a marina by the way.


Stephen Small and I stayed behind...


and I put the finishing touches on THIS...


Please don't hate me for making something so cute. I'm really proud of it, no humility in my heart.


Y'all, I LOVE to sew! Who knew?


Have a great week! Be back soon.

When we move closer, I'll pay you to teach me. I took so many sewing classes now I don't know how to even thread the machine! I need you help! Nice work!

I love SS's outfit(s) -- especially the green overall set. It's my new desktop view!

I'm so glad Easter was good.

Love you--

It looks like y'all had a wonderful Easter; how fun that you and Lucy both live in Montgomery!! All of your new sewing projects are fabulous - how did you get started? I want to learn how to sew, but I have to make it through nursing school first {May can't be here soon enough}!

Great Easter pics! You look great in purple, and SS is adorable in his new outfit! I'm beyond impressed with your skills. Teach me!

Omgosh, I have a bunch of comments:
1. I LOVE that family picture! Should be your Christmas card- sweet reality.
2. Lucy- send me a toffee bar, like, now.
3. THAT outfit is precious! I mean, just adorable. It seriously is so cute I could hate you. But, I hate to sew, so instead I just want to squeeze SS because he looks so cute in it!
4. Happy Easter!
