"If the world were merely seductive, that would be easy. If it were merely challenging, that would be no problem. But I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day." — E.B. White

Easter Blessings to You and Yours

Little hands keep sneakin' all my "decor!"  ;-P

Sarah made a super cute bunny cottage with Easter Bunny!
And Jack made a duck pond with chicks n eggs. 

And here are a few pics from last year... I'm always amazed how fast my kids are changing... 

We gave my (city boy) baby brother his very own chicks for Easter last year. After baskets and church here, we headed down to his place with our sweet fluffy peeps (and a bunny cake and ham and deviled eggs). For sure we felt like we were the Clampetts, bringin the farm to the city in our big truck full of shavings n feed , heat lamp and crate o chicks! You could almost here the hillbilly music following us...

Baby Brother bought his first home in the burbs, but it's in a nice area w/big lots and old barns so he had an instant coop. (lucky sod) Bless his yuppie heart he even made them a welcoming home in his shower stall 'til they were ready to face the cold outdoors! Wonder if his new sweet fiance will ever let that happen again!? The chicks are all grown and now enjoying their new run and outdoor playtime. Baby Brother enjoys bringing his free range organic eggs into his D.C. office to share!

Last pic. Sarah four years ago. There were snow flurries as I took this. No smiles from the shivering tot!

Wishing you a bright and beautiful Easter!

I love seeing Easter on your farm, Leslie! Such cute kiddos, and I hear ya on the snow flurry filled pictures. We've had flurries almost every day. Grrrr.
Love the little chick feeder. I wouldn't be able to resist eating the decorations either. Jelly beans are one of my weaknesses!

Love the candy jar! Did you make it our buy it? So cute and I have so many jars with no lids...I guess I might need to go to the feed store and see if I can find me some chick feeders!
