Good morning! What a fun, busy weekend we've had. Yesterday we went to daughter Ashley's in the afternoon for a wonderful, delicious Easter dinner. When we were finished, of course we had to have a little egg hunt. This was Lucy's first year to be able to participate and she loved it! She ran from egg to egg as fast as she could find them.

The basket was about as big as she was!

Abbey had had enough of pretty dresses (she's a little bit of a tomboy), so she decided to get comfy before we went outside.

Lucy looked everywhere and they both ended up finding 10 eggs.

Abbey got this t-shirt from her other grandma, and the chamilion turns colors when you go outside.

Ashley and Tony were being silly, but it makes my heart sing when I see my children so happy.

Saturday, they didn't get a chance to color eggs (they went to a rabbit show), so we couldn't go home without helping color a few eggs. You can see that Papa was right into it too!

Great-grandma has done eggs with Abbey every year since she was born - this year is no exception. Thank you Tony and Ashley for a wonderful afternoon.

Earlier in the day, we went to visit Dad at the nursing home and son Chad and his Kim came to meet us there. My sweet Dad is really failing, I so wish I could wave a magic wand. I took him a big chocolate bunny, but he didn't feel like doing any tasting yesterday. Oh well, maybe today.

SO, today I need to get myself back into creative mode and get to work. My mind is swirling with new goodies for the shop and I need to give myself a little push to start sewing. Lots of stitcheries are done and ready to be grubbed up though. Just glad to have a day at home! The coffee is on and I'm going to turn on some music - and then...

Hope you all had a wonderful day with family and friends and we'll talk again soon.

Until next time...


  1. Morning Dawn, Lucy is so cute. Love that red hair. Glad you got to spend time with her and Abbey and your family. Was really glad to see there was no Snow!
    I have been on phone with nursing home today concerning Mother. She is failing fast. Just breaks my heart. She did eat a boiled egg and we took her Easter dinner and she ate good last evening. It just breaks our heart and to feel so helpless. Hope your Dad is feeling better today. Can't wait to see what your creative mind comes up with today. Have fun .

  2. Your granddaughters are so beautiful. I am very taken by the little red-heads.
    Sorry to hear your dad isn't feeling his best. He will be in my prayers.
    Let those creative juices flow!

  3. Such wonderful memories yoiu have made...looks like you had a great Easter. So sorry to hear aboout your Dad, hopefully today he ate the ears of his bunny!! Have fun creating.

  4. Hi Dawn...LOVE your header....happy you got some sunshine to take pictures - us too!! Anxious to see your "re-do" of the store! I am busy readying for our herb sale - never enough thyme (or maybe age is catching up with me) !!
    Your grands are so precious ( we have #12 being born in July)
    Sending a hug over your sadness with your Dad. XO Judy
