As you can see, I have a new blog topper. A special thank you to Phillip for making it for me! He was very patient while I said, "No, to the right...up a bit...no, down..ok, now to the left." ;0)
The fern is from my front flower bed. The welcome sign hangs on my front porch and the bistro table is an early Mother's Day present. Very early!
Our Easter weekend was cold. We actually had two hours of snow flurries on Saturday! That night it got down to 33F, so I covered up my plants and brought in the potted ones.
Fern was a good "watch-cat." She also thought the dirt made a good snack!
Poor Emily got an unexpected "Easter Egg." A huge bruise on her cheek. She and Grace shared the upper bunk Saturday night and during a tickling/wrestling game she hit her face on the bed rail. Fortunately, she says it doesn't hurt very much and was pleased when hardly anyone noticed it at church.
Everyone woke up to an Easter basket and some new outside toys. Hopefully it will be a bit warmer this week and they can play in the sandbox.
The string Benjamin is holding is edible grass. It feels like straw and probably tastes like it too! Not much has been eaten!
Here are the girls and Benjamin all ready for church. Grace and Emily were flower girls in a wedding 2 years ago and Emily is wearing one of the dresses. We found Grace's dress and Benjamin's shirt and the children's resale store this past week.
Grace and Emily wore their hair in a "cinnamon roll" bun, and I added a pink bow.
Here they are putting fresh flowers on the cross, at the front of our church.
After the service was the egg hunt...
It was about 45F degrees but they braved the cold!
We had lunch at Phillip's family's house. We had ham, scalloped potatoes, green beans, carrots, asparagus and rolls.
I made this lemon with butter cream lamb cake.
"Don't eat me!"
Lastly, I want to show you a real life Easter bunny. A baby rabbit has decided to live behind my Columbine flowers. The girls have named him Peter.
Off he goes, he's very camera shy!
Thank you for looking at my Easter pictures. I hope you had a wonderful day with your family!
