Check out Goosegirl and Ellie Inspired..they are both running contests...As I write this, the non-techi person is coming out, and  I hope my friends can find their blogs on my page.  We will see about that, I guess.

Good news, my eye is healthy!!!  Now as sooon as the numbness wears off, I will be able to see appropriately and get some sewing in buttonholes on jammies!!!

It is a cool in Iowa today, but the temp is up to the soil should be warming right along!

Easter Sunday, every day from now on!

I loved our Easter Sunday, started off with decorating the bunny cake for Mr. Reece to enjoy after church and dinner.  Church was marvelous.  With my Meniere's disease, loud piano music is very hard on I don't often get to sit in church all the way through.  I know how much I can take, and just quietly leave the sanctuary so I don't have a headache that lasts for 3 days!!!  But this pianist, just our lovely handsome John playing the organ.  Dr. Blake sand a beautiful Pennsylvania Dutch song and was accompanied by Denny on the guitar.  Just a beautiful Easter song, in the Peter, Paul, and Mary style of the 60s!

Taylor has grown so much in just a very short month!  His high chair straps even had to be moved from just his last visit here in early March.  He is one huge hunk...shocked me when I first picked him up.  My back just creaked.  But, he is just such a darling baby...equal to Reece!  Reece enjoyed the easter egg thing this year, from coloring to hunting!  He's a lover...smooches still at almost long will that last?

A friend sent me the Chez Ami website, I forwarded it on to Melissa, so she can pick out fabrics for the girls.  Lovely fabric and lovely clearance prices.  I love it!!!   Plus the wovens cottens have polyester too, so that will make that ironing chore easier for Melissa!  She keeps my granddaughters so sweet...and has everything ready since their Daddy has to send them off to school.

I just wish Oregon was 1500 miles closer, so they could share the special days with us.  We miss out so much of them, and they miss out on so much without us!

Have a pleasant week!
