I couldn’t resist taking this picture one morning just before Easter. The girls were just too adorable.

Here we have the girls the day before Easter. First time painting eggs. I think they are awesome.

Starting my Mother~in~Law’s favorite dessert on Easter morning.

Pineapples and pecans in the syrup. You guessed it, pineapple upside down cake!

The girls wanted to help, but Daddy said they had to be upside down first.

Of course, it isn’t Easter without Bernie’s favorite pickled eggs and beets. Bernie is Doug’s awesome step~father, the girls call him Poppy.

As we were heading out to Nana and Poppy’s we saw a turkey out for a stroll. Guess it figured Easter was safe.

When I broke my hand, one of my first thoughts was that of relief that I had gotten a head start on the Craft Hope project and already had a few dozen bracelets made. Then yesterday Jade announced she was going to add another project at the same time. Ahh! I can’t craft without my right hand! So, in my attempt to still be a useful Craft Hoper, I ended up as the contact for the next project. I believe Jade is typing up the post about it right now. So I’ll give you more info once it is announced.

Oh, and I figured if I was going to be stuck staring at a cast for 6 weeks, it was going to be pretty.

Not too bad when you consider I am not left handed.
