Happy Easter!

Just want to wish everyone a Happy Easter! We are enjoying having family around. Spending part of today getting ready for the big Easter feast tomorrow. K volunteered to make a cake, and it turned out so cute!!








She used a sunflower cake pan I had and then put large Giradelli chocolate chips in the middle and Peep chicks around the edge to make a sunflower.








There are games being played...











Books being read....



















And lesson plans being written. (M starts her teaching job on Monday!)



















K's been knitting on her Leaf Aghan and making good progress. She sewed three of the strips together and has finished a 4th and started on a 5th. It is going to be a gorgeous wedding gift!!





I hit the jackpot today with my swap package from Jessica for the Loopy Ewe Spring Fling Swap. 2 packages of her home roasted coffee beans; a pair of Shibui yarn knit socks (which are on my feet at this very moment!); Kansas City BBQ sauce; Restoration Hardware hand cream and Pucker Brush Farm Roving. I'm looking forward to meeting Jessica next month at the Spring Fling!!



And Sumo? Well, he just takes his little naps while waiting for someone, anyone, to feel like going for a walk. So far no luck. But he never gives up hope. Just yesterday K took him down to the lakes and on a nice long walk around them. It could happen again. It could.













Until Next Time.....

That cake is so cute! What a great idea!

You got a great package from your swap partner. The socks look great.

Hope you and your family have a wonderful Easter. He is risen!

The cake is just darling. Of course, after I got my slice I would have had to put my peep in the microwave because that's the only way I like to eat them!


We can't say the word "walk" around our house because it gets our beagles too excited; and then if we don't follow through, the disappointment is just too great:)

Happy Easter! Alleluia!!

That cake look wonderful! I didn't notice that the edges were Peeps. Oooo and I like the thought of putting the Peep in the microwave. Who would have ever thought of the microwave heating up M&Ms and Peeps!! Tee Hee Hee

Looks like everyone had a wonderful day!
