Happy Day After Easter!

Yesterday was too much of a whirlwind to even jump in here once to wish you Happy Easter!

It started out as a cool, rainy day but by afternoon had warmed up nicely and was mostly sunny.

All last week I meant to show y'all the Easter Parade going on in my dining room and never got around to it, so here it is now!  All my vintage chickies and roosters strutting their stuff across the top of my buffet!
Of course Mr. Rooster will lead the way.
Here was my favorite Easter creation from yesterday's lunch!  Peeps and fruit kabobs!
See my little lamb planter that they are in?  Ain't it darlin'.  A Goodwill find.

And look what the Easter Bunny brought me!  A new hoe and shovel!  I am so grateful, my old ones had wooden handles that were so old they were leaving splinters in my hands every time I used them.

Yngwie and I ready for church.  I just love seeing my son all dressed up!

Lunch time!  I had eight people for lunch and we had sooooo much food!  My niece is so funny.  She insists that I always put the macaroni salad in the blue bowl.

My sister, my Dad and me!  I am so blessed to still have my Dad around!

Hope everyone had a Happy Easter!

Blessings

Thank you for sharing your day...it sounds like the perfect celebration. Our day was pretty low key...just us for dinner. But I enjoyed the peace of not having to entertain. Love your Parade...lol! I could almost hear music. My peeps bunnies are almost gone...I am supposed to be dieting, but they are only 27.5 calories each...and better when they are a bit stale and chewy!

Looks like you had a fantastic Easter. Yes, you are so blessed to still have your father around, mine passed away in 2007 and I still wish I could talk to him. I still have my mom, and I take care of her, so I'm still blessed in that regard. Your Easter parade is so darling.

Hugs,
Meri

Sound like you had a wonderful day with your family. It is a pretty blue bowl, so I can see why your niece would want to make sure it makes an appearance on the table every year.

Really a nice day for you and the family. I have a blue bowl like that myself!
