I made it!! I got the yard, the house, the cooking and all my sewing done for Easter. I really enjoyed the day. In fact the whole weekend was so special. My cousin, her daughter and my Brother in Law came on Friday. I wish they were in this picture too, but we have been wanting to get a family picture for a long time, so they are behind the camera snapping pictures.

I guess at 13 and 15 you don't sit close to your sister or brother...
A few pictures showing the girls dresses.
After church everyone comes to our house. Pictures are taken right away while everyone is looking their best. After pictures, we have our Easter egg hunt. Eight out of the 10 grandkids hunted for about 8 dozen eggs this year, so it was really fun.
After the egg hunt we have dinner which is served buffet style. There were 22 of us this year so eating outdoors is the only option. It was a little chilly this year, but the kids don't seem to notice.
BBQ Baby Back Ribs
Green Bean Cassarole
2 Jello Salads
3 Bean Salad
Tossed Green Salad
After games and playing in the back yard it's dessert time.
Just so you know...all deserts are real. This is where I had all my cloches filled with fake deserts at Valentines and I promised everyone it would be full of real yummies come Easter.
German Chocolate Cupcake Cake and Cupcakes
Peanut Butter Blossoms
Chocolate Pies (yes two)
(the last two still in Fridge)
However, my sweet little Jack still came to me with a cupcake and said "Is this real, can I eat it"
I know, pretty pathetic that my grandson has to ask if a desert is "real"....Oh Well.
Many thanks to my husband who never takes pictures and stepped up to the plate and took over 100 pictures for me so I could play hostess. He also got all the "honey dos" I piled on him the last couple of weeks done.
Also want to thank my Cousin Judy, her daughter Amber and my sweet Brother in Law Lynn for all their help with every thing. It was truly one of the best days ever.
And most of all I am thanking the Lord for my wonderful loving family.
Thanks to all who make it through this family Easter saga.
I promise to have some more interesting posts in the next few days.
I'm going to share another recipe.
I won a giveaway and can't wait to share about that.
My pantry got cleaned organized and a cute shelf paper threatment I want to show you. Along with that, I am finally ready to show my Powder Room and Laundry room where my pantry is located.
Coming Soon.....the guest bedroom/ playroom/pink room.
Hope all who read this had a blessed Easter Sunday. I visited a lot of you in the last few days, but had no time to comment. But I will be visiting again and having time to comment. I have made so many new friends that I cherish along with the ones of you that I knew before I started this blogging thing.
