HAPPY EASTER EVERYONE!
Did the Easter bunny come visit you?
He visited the good boys and girls of Lollipop Lane
Leaving them all kinds of candy and sweets.
And he hid the easter eggs...
the children spent the day going to church in their new pretty outfits
hunting for eggs
and spoiling there dinners with all their Easter day treats.
I miss the excitement of easter when I was a little girl.
A new dress, a basket full of candy, and day spent with your family
and grandma's fresh baked rolls with homemade jam.
Oh, look at my saddle shoes. They are too cute.
I should get myself a pair.
hehe, isn't my hubby a total cute-t-pie?
Oh how I loved my candy stripped dress.
Seems more christmas than Easter
My little sister and I always had matching dresses
I loved when they where just a little bit different in style
Made me feel special to have a big girls dress
I found this sweet Easter dress at the Goodwill Outlet store
a couple weeks ago
(and THANK YOU Elizabeth of Creative Breathing
for the pink and yellow hangers you so kindly sent me)
Oh how I dream that it was in my size
I was so sad when I no longer received a new dress for Easter
Growing up can be very unfair that way
But the most magical and unexpected package arrived at my door step yesterday
The most BEAUTIFUL Easter Dress
was sent to me by an Angel I am sure
Bobbie of Creative Life Diary
most sweetly sent me this gorgeous dress "just because"!
I am so flattered and well there is simply not words to express
my joy and gratitude!
THANK YOU Bobbie for your friendship
and for sending me childlike joy and making this Easter unexpectedly magical!!!
I also received another sweet easter package yesterday
I've never had to go pick up a package at the post office
my curiosity for what it might be was overwhelming
Just in time for Easter
my Easter Bonnet Parade award from Scrappy Jessi
so whimsical ~ Thank YOU!
So sadly for the second year and in a row I have not colored eggs
It's just not that fun to do it by yourself :(
When I asked hubby if he wanted to color them with me
But I did make some cupcakes for this afternoons Easter dinner
I'm not really that into baking but once in a while I give it a try
Nothing to fancy, just a out of the box kind of day
but I made my own frosting with fresh strawberries
and decorated them with candy grass, malt eggs, rainbow sprinkles, and tapioca sprinkles from the Japanese import store
Well this post has taken a year to put together
so I better leave the computer and embrace the day
I only wish the rain would go away...
