Remembering Easter when it was warmer and my tulips were up!
My two oldest Grandchildren (of 6) are shown here a few years ago when my tulips were in full bloom and I could hide the eggs under the flowers. These two nice children are only three months apart and are best friends...they are on the same hockey team with their Dad's as the coaches. Easter is early this year so Now there are NO flowers and it is pretty bare out there in my large backyard. But I wanted to have some fun and show what a nice memory this would make in a story quilt. Do you remember a special Easter and something you received? A basket, a stuffed animal, a stomach ache? I remember Easter as a lovely holiday of great brunches and hams and great potatoes, super salads, fresh aspargus and the first strawberries of the season. How about you?
Also, I had to share this cartoon for my husband's sake...I grab all of the covers and I can't help myself. Our bed gets kind of messy with him trying to fight for any covers he can grab. My daughter the perfectionist used to make her husband get up in the middle of night so she could remake their messy bed. He complained about it to us and we all told him he needed to learn to ignore her like we do. :0)
