Easter Smiles & Blessings

Beginning on a sad note, my friend's husband you all prayed for and sent good thoughts to passed last night. Thank you for your kindnesses.
Did the Easter Bunny fill your basket? Have you eaten chocolate ears and tails? Are you spending a nice relaxing day filled with family and traditions? Did you attend a nurturing church service?

I hope you answered YES! to the activities that appealed to you. A blessed and HAPPY KEESTER to you and yours, as the above photo says!

Since my kidlets are too old for the normal Easter revelry, we spent time yesterday watching my neice's two-year-old have a ball dying and hunting eggs. The weather was gorgeous and it was great to be outdoors. And it sure was nice today not to have to rush about cooking and cleaning. We'll be visiting friends in the hospital after Mass, maybe taking a nap, and just in general lolling around. I'll worry about laundry and cleaning the house on Monday.

Doesn't this picture say it all about enjoying a hobby, activity or pursuit with passion and zeal?

I'm so sorry for your friend. How horrible. :-(

On the other hand, that little boy looks like he wants to crush that egg with his fists. LOL

We're about to have our egg hunt and I'm SO excited.

Angie Ledbetter said...

Happy Easter to you too, Michelle & Astaryth!

Oren, give all your bunnies a hug for me.

Thanks, Jessica. And yeah, the little guy dug a hole in his egg soon after that picture. LOL. Have a ball on your hunt!

I'm sorry to hear about your friend's husband. It is so difficult to say goodbye to someone you care about.

I'm glad you are having a good Easter. Ours will be quiet. We went out to eat on Saturday night to avoid the Easter crowds. I'm using my crock pot today to make a pot roast for dinner. Low key but with jelly beans!

Happy Easter Angie,

Sorry about your friend's husband. I mentioned before my family has been there and it's tough with a younger person.

I loved this post. How adorable are those little Easter buns and is your neice's daughter.

Our Easter was lovely and was started with a really moving church service. I was so glad I was there.
