A little late posting today but.... the kitchen needed some clearing and picking up before the in-laws arrived for the Birthday BBQ today... which kinda trumped the normal Easter fare. Someone thinks she is turning 12 this week! Can you imagine? She would not get a good shot by the cake.... silly girl. I think Dad had fun adding all the candles to the cake and lighting them. Good thing there is a fire department right down the road a bit!
So, I am enjoying some comfortable temperatures on the cleaned back screened in patio. Laying out my Endless Diamond blocks for pinning into sets of 2 to be hand stitched together.
I have managed to get 4 sets of 2 done in the past week.
Everyone is on their own for dinner (plenty of leftover burgers, brats, beans, orange salad and pasta salad - with the taco salad, cheese ball and deviled eggs available as well). Hey Mom - Papa Tom's favorite things were the taco salad and the orange salad!
The Grandparents came over to help celebrate Easter and Emily for a couple of hours before they scooted back to their houses. At least the eggs got sent home with everyone.... 3 dozen and we have plenty left! Poor Tom has missed out on 2 dozen eggs as his son keeps forgetting to take them when he heads that way.
One kid wanted the traditional Easter Egg hunt this morning... so I filled the plastic eggs late last night and had a helper hide them around the house. It got a bit more difficult this year - something about color matching that made it a little bit trickier to find. There were 40 eggs hidden - 20 each to find. Em found hers.... Aidan took longer and finally found the last missing one this afternoon when he moved a speaker by the front computer and said 'found it'! That Easter Bunny sure was tricky this year.
Linking up with the other Slow Stitchers at Kathy's today.
