Happy Easter

Easter Sunday .. the morning started out beautiful, sunny even for most of the day.  It has been  a very busy day with our family lunch, two little boys keeping everyone hopping (no pun intended) and then "finding Easter eggs".......a good time was had by all.   Pictures to follow.

DH is having a nap, catching up from all the day.  Meanwhile Quincy is sitting by my foot, complaining loudly that dinner should be ready  lol it's only 4:17 pm and his dinner bell doesn't ring till 5pm!  Now it's his turn to nap.

As for me, not yet ready to sit and stitch, but that is coming.   After a glass of wine..........ah!

Back to the Liebster Award, and 5 random things you don't know about me:

1.  Twice married, first time not long at all.  I was a single mom for 14+ years till I met DH.
2.  DH and I were penpals, yes the long letter writing kind.  All this before email came along.  We still have  
all the letters that were written.
3.  A very proud grandma of two grandsons.  Noah (who turns 4 in July) was diagnosed  a year ago as being on the Autism Spectrum  (ASD) .  His communication skills are improving, words slowly coming.  Hugs and smiles....priceless.     Nate (coming up 2 later this month) is my official kitchen organizer.  My cupboards have never had so many change ups.   Nate is all about "Oh no" right now.......  
4.  Generally, I'm a private person.   I'm always willing to participate or help but tend to stay on the outside.
5.  to be continued.........................

till next time...
