We had a pleasant weekend. We left Friday morning on the 1 1/2 hour drive to my folks. Of course, when we got there, my mom said she had to go pick up my sister and her kids who happen to live 10 minutes from me! If we had known that, we would have picked them up and brought them with us! But everything worked out anyway. We swung by my house to pick up my wallet and some eggs for Easter. Then we went to the mall to meet my other sister who was buying an Easter dress for my niece. I was not away of this when we left the house. I certainly would not have gone!!! You know, when a bunch of women get together to "buy a dress" it's going to be an all day affair....and it was. You can't buy a dress without buying shoes to go with it. Then the other women want to have "a look around", and will probably buy something for themselves....and they did. The best part was dinner at this new Mexican restaraunt. But we were gone from home for nearly 12 hours! I could have killed myself!!! Saturday was pretty uneventful, as my sister who met us at the mall went back home with her kids and my other sister's kids. But my brother and his wife came over Saturday evening after her family had visited them. That was a treat cause I got to see Jalyssa, my three month old niece, as well as Austin and Tyler, my nephews. Sunday the whole gang went to church while Mike and I worked on dinner and getting the house ready. We had a big dinner of baked ham, potato salad, baked beans, deviled eggs, and more. Then we had an egg hunt for the kids. Last year, as a joke, we put some dog food in plastic eggs. The kids thought it was so funny and my four year old nephew said," B member the eggs with dog food, Grandma?" So we did it again this year. Then we headed home Sunday evening with my oldest nephew who I have to take to meet his dad tonight.
I gotta send out a big thank you to several blogger friends. First, I don't think I ever gave Amy a proper thanks for the things she sent to me. I don't have any pics. But she sent me some delicious Buttons chocolate candy, adorable "salt and pepper pots" with a rooster and hen on them, and a Union Jack, who sits upon my television. Thank you so much, Amy over @ http://www.bubble-bubblesblog.blogspot.com/
Thank you very much Susan for the wonderful gifts I won in your giveaway, too. I got them in the mail yesterday! I got a white dream catcher, a shamrock amulet, and an angel in a heart! I'll try to post pics later. I'm pretty busy this week with work and other stuff. But, thank you so very much!! http://www.troubleink-craftycrafts.blogspot.com/
Then I gotta thank Joanna. I'm not sure who gave her my address. It may have been me. I can't remember. But I know I sent her package from work and used my work address. Maybe I put it in a note? Maybe someone else gave it to her. However she got it, thank you, Joanna, for my sign! She sent me an ASU-Applachian State University sign. I had a friend from high school that went to ASU. But I haven't spoken to him since then. But thank you, Joanna. http://www.boonedockswilcox.blogspot.com/
Have a great day, everyone!
