Thank you to Grub Market and Laura
We celebrated Easter all day on Sunday.
First we went to church and then we came home for a big family day.
Here are some eggs we colored. They are not real eggs but fake eggs I got at the Walmart Clearance last year for 19 cents a dozen.
We used markers and stickers
And my daughter tried the rice-food coloring- shake it all up method she had seen on Facebook. Mixed reviews from us on that one.....
Our lunch menu included "doubled eggs" as 5 year old Elizabeth calls them.
I cooked 2 dozen eggs. I like to use a pastry blender to mash up the filling
And a small scoop to fill the eggs back up.
That very large dining table I found on a Facebook swap and shop list is so nice for big meals.
We got a heavy rain on Easter morning and it left the backyard muddy so we had the egg hunt indoors.
My daughter and me, after most of our Easter activities.
Mid week, son Bobby came with daughters Andie and Charlie. My parents came over to visit them too.
They are all so happy to see each other. It makes this grandma so happy to see them hug and spontaneously say "I love you Andie" or which ever cousin they are near. :)
I had not been in about 2 weeks and I ended up with a pretty big haul. It did not go quite as planned. The deals on the CVS app don't show up in the store for me so I did call customer service.
My husband and I celebrated our 36th wedding anniversary and he gave me 3 dozen roses.
They smelled so good and lasted about 10 days.
I cooked a big batch of homemade chili and put most of it in the freezer for quick meals on future busy days.
I also made a big batch of refried beans for th freezer, but didn't take a photo.
I baked my favorite chocolate chip, oatmeal coconut and snickerdoodles.
When he came to get the cookies, he also made himself a salad to go and he looked over the garden
In our backyard
One plan I have for April is it will be a low-spend extra thrifty month at the If You Do Stuff home,
Our biggest bill of the year is due in June. So we are planning to save extra the next 2 months so when that property insurance leaves our savings account, it won't be as noticeable.
More on that later............
Have a good first week in April everyone
