Happy Easter

Happy Easter!!!

I hope that you all are having a wonderful holiday weekend and that the true meaning of Easter lives in your heart.

It's been a wonderful Easter celebration in the Spoonful house.

We started on Thursday with the annual egg dye.

There never seem to be enough eggs!!

I love watching Paul and the kids create ..
you never know what there minds will come up with.

These are my favorite people in the whole world.
I love them all.
Even that silly guy in the middle who has brought my precious daughter back to a happy place.

Paul and Michelle paint their eggs.

And we end up with a big happy family full of eggheads.

On Friday,  I took a break from the candy making and
the girls and I went to the movies to see the Host.
It was OK,...    Not as good as the book,
But we still enjoyed it.

Saturday morning started out like this...

Me working and making a mess in the kitchen.

Since Paul has to work on Easter Sunday,
we celebrated our Easter Yesterday.

It was a beautiful day outside,
Perfect for Easter dinner with friends and family.

Dinner was fantastic. 
There was tons of good food and as usual,
 we ate ourselves sick.

How cute is this little lamb butter?

Michelle's boyfriend treated me to this beautiful bouquet
while I treated them all to some yummy desserts.

And then..  we broke out the festive cocktails.

Celebrating the holiday a day early was different..
but I liked it. 
As long as we are all together..
Nothing else matters to me.

Have a wonderful day everyone!!

I love the painted eggs - how creative! Our medium consists of wax crayons & Sharpies.

Debbie from Our Old Homestead told me about your blog. I'm a new follower!

I don't know why I never thought of using paintbrushes when decorating Easter eggs; I know what I'll be trying next year.
