An array of dirty wineglasses still sit by the sink awaiting a wash. They have been there since yesterday's festivities and I've decided they need to be patient and will be washed tomorrow.
Today went by with a late pancake breakie then several hours at the park with other families playing tennis and soccer together. We came home with just enough time to all shower, grab a quick snack, wrap some gifts and head to a friends for a yummy feast of Indian food.
Yesterday was a big family breakfast a walk, getting dinner prepped and in the oven before the rest of the guests arrived for Ryan's birthday party and Easter dinner. It all went so well and there were certainly lots of laughs to be had.
My dear brother in-law decided to wear his most zany Easter attire:
The guy in purple with the swanky sideways shuffle was certainly the life of the party. No need for hired kiddie entertainment at our house. The best part was he never did change, he even played in the ping pong tourney wearing the suit!
An early egg-intervention had to be made at our egg hunt as Ry was a bit confused aboiut what and what not to eat.
trying to bite right through the platic to get the gummies inside! That's when I had to drop my role as photographer and step back into my Mommy role and stop the insanity. We opened it up, had a nibble and a giggle and put it where it belonged...
My brother in law is not only a fun guy...he's a very talented photographer. He sent me this photograph of my Momma, my sis and I:
This is up on our driveway...a nice gravel pile is behind us for the work we are doing in the yard...then behind that you see the roof of the house our butthole neighbours decided to place on our property line of their three acre lot. Obviously I am still struggling with my anger on this one...deep breathing, happy thoughts, looking at the bright side, even lavender...nothings working. It's a small matter of twenty feet and we wouldn't have had their house in our sight lines at all. It makes me crazy!!!! Hope the darn Easter Bunny left piles of rabbit poop for them. Hubbie is so done with my whining on this one. This too shall pass...right? please?
Seeing this montage certainly brought be back to a more peaceful reality...
It took a lot of serious blowing to get these candles out. Ryan's little kissy lips were working hard but ultimately needed the candles brought closer. Thanks Brian for these shots, I'll treasure them always.

As for the cake...it was carrot. I had many requests for the recipe so I will share that tomorrow.
Hope you had a wonderful Easter weekend friends. Wish I could say I am sick of chocolate...little heaps of goodies still polka dot almost every counter, table top, and windowsill around me. PMS and Easter can be a potentially dangerous combo and tonight I am saying "no" in hopes of having a blissfully sound sleep.
