The Sunday Salon: Easter 2009 Edition

It’s another beautiful day and it just happens to be Easter. Happy Easter to you! The kids got me up early to see if the Easter Bunny came and sure enough, he had. For those that read about my Easter pickle, I never did find those baskets so I had to purchase two new ones for the Big Guy to fill.


Egg Hunt


Coloring Eggs


The New Baskets

No pics of my son. He is apparently too old now (at the ripe age of 10) to color or hunt for eggs but not too old to get a basket! Smart kid. I’m happy as a clam because I just took a bite of a See’s Candies Bordeaux Egg. The best stuff in the world and one bite is all I need.

Later on we are BBQing a ham and preparing a mini feast of side dishes to go along with it. I will get it all ready and then plop down on the couch to read. My husband has it in his head that is going to go out and buy a fountain today. Yep, on Easter. Men! They get it in their heads that they have to do something and it has to be done right at that minute!

Hope you are all enjoying your Easter Sunday!

In a Bit of a Easter Pickle

It’s a beautiful day in Southern California and I just realized that the kid’s baskets, the ones that I have had for each of them since birth, are missing! Every year we put them out for the Easter Bunny to fill and I cannot find them anywhere! This is only our second year in this house but I remember putting them up in a closet for safekeeping and they are not there now.

I could hit one of the stores to get two different baskets but it’s not the same. I’ve torn the house apart. I have no idea what happened to them. To be honest with you, I don’t think the kids would care too much as long as they had other baskets but it’s sort of sad for them to be gone. I am going to have my husband check the attic just in case they got shoved up there when we put the Christmas stuff away.

Anyway, have a Happy Easter!
