Happy Easter to All!

We had Easter dinner at my house this year as Cheryl and Hank were invited for dinner at Wendy and Robby Lawson's. It was a gorgeous day here in Maine--in the 70's and sunny-beautiful. Our guests were Andi and Dave Donnelly, Kit and Erin Doty, Aaron and I and happily Mom, who was feeling and looking great and in great spirits!
Kit and Erin picked her up in Kit's new work truck-which is about 5 feet off the ground with her oxygen tank and bunny ears on!

We had the traditional ham, cheesy potatoes, veggies, pecan rolls and butter rolls, and pineapple upside down cake and lemon lush for dessert. Somehow at the end of dinner the discussion turned to chili recipes-probably because Cheryl gave Andi a great slow cooker cookbook. This led to Mom saying she'd heard chili powder goes "buggy" and should be replaced often. Since whatever chili pepper I've bought has been around for Years (I'm not fond of chili), Mom and Erin needed to check it out for bugs--with a magnifying glass. Mom said she thought she saw some movement in one can, and was sure the other was loaded with the dead carcasses of the critters! Both went in the garbage-how to these things come up in the middle of an Easter dinner?? Don't ask me--

Some random extra shots...

Andi was busy downloading pictures of her adorable grandson, James, who Joanne visited with when she was just out in Arizona...

Kit is sure no one can see him as he sneaks in a pecan roll before dinner!

Aaron and Erin (notice how thin she's gotten) she's working out like a crazy person!

Dave and Mom enjoy some appetizers!

All in all we had a great time, and hope you and your families did too!


  1. Looks like a good time...wish we could have been there! Love the photos of Mom in the bunny ears:-) look great!

  2. April 6 - Thank you for sharing pictures and Easter Greeting. It appears
    everyone had a nice Easter there. We had a nice lunch with some friends - I have
    a busy day because I sing in choir and we had a 7:00 am. rehersal and two
    services. I flaked out around four that afternoon. So glad to see that your
    mother is up and about now. Best to all, A. Ann
