Thrifty find & family outing.

I found this beautiful little crock for $5
Inside the little crock is a branch from our lilac tree.
The day after this photo it snowed and dropped down to freezing.
Now I wonder if the buds will open on the trees at our drive-way.

So pretty.

Friday started out a dull, cloudy day as most Good Friday's do.
Plans had been made to meet the family at Temples for an early breakfast.
Breakfast was deeeelicious and the coffee was piping hot.
We then headed over to the trail through the sugar bush. 
Even Kane came along for the hike.
This was a good opportunity to capture a family photo once again.
This is our first Easter with little Gwyn. 
As luck would have it, someone who walked by was nice enough to take a photo for us. He said "No problem. I have the same camera."

Not bad. "Thanks so much...whoever you were." :)

Some of you have enjoyed your Easter dinners by now.
I hope you all had a great time with your families.

The Easter baskets are filled at our home and waiting for three very special little ones.

Our Easter dinner will be Monday.

On the menu this year...
Ham with a pineapple glaze
Cheesy scalloped potatoes
Layered  hot veggie dish which includes
sweet potato, carrots, zucchini, tomato & spinach topped with feta. (bake until bubbly)
Sweet corn and green beans
whole wheat rolls 
Cupcake Wine

Raspberry custard pie
Carrot cupcakes with butter-cream icing
lots of chocolate
coffee and tea

I'm also busy once again with cat-sitting and SO HAPPY to see so many of my regulars. =^..^=
I am caring for a ginger, a calico, two grey tabbies, and a tuxedo. I'll try to sweet-talk them into a photo or two...just for you.

Wishing everyone a Blessed Easter weekend.
I'm off to kitty-sit.
hugs, Deb
