Wish You'd Been There

What a lovely Easter we had at my sister Toni's house yesterday. Thankfully she is just 30 minutes away. We were sad to not have all the big girls and their babies, not to mention the other sister with her family and the good brother and his wife. My parents and all my boys were there, if you are wondering why no photos of the 3 older boys, it's not because I haven't tried...seems as though they prefer not to be blog stars...

Oh well, I'm just lucky enough to have a 7 year old that is certainly not camera shy!

Looks like he has something meaningful to share...

Still on a mission for a camera, I tried all the ones I could round up yesterday

cute Easter chicks!
Could spring really be coming?

Then I put it all together and what do you know

If you haven't tried Picasa, it is a free download from Google, it is really fun!
After dinner we made a couple of feed sack totes, but I didn't get a picture because it was soooo late(a classic case of it takes longer than you think it will)... however I was so happy this morning to get this from Dawn

She did it! Even with the convoluted tutorial. Now that is what I call a blog star!!

Speaking of cute chicks, remember

a mother's work

is never done

Oh my! I think they're done!

No these are not mine... But kinda makes me wish I had a coop!


  1. So good to catch up with you today. Love the mosaic picture. Looks like such a fun time with your family.



  2. We had fun too....and so glad you shared your fun always, no pictures of me to share with you all, and I see none of you too :)

    too bad!

  3. Happy Easter! It looks like you had fun! Darling photos.



  4. Joy I love your collage. I would love to learn how.
    The chicken and the hatching are priceless.

  5. So glad you had such a nice Easter. We have no family near us and hardly ever get to see them. I enjoy seeing everyone's family gatherings!! The Mama hen photos are great. I can hardly wait till I have my own hens!!

  6. That young boy of yours needs some getting eggs from chickens, feeding them and cleaning up after them. Then it's not your resposibility AND you will have fresh eggs. Don't ya think?? :o)

  7. Oh - Joy! Everything is perfect! Love, LOVE your pics and hearing from you. My computer is still "iffy", but getting to use the Mr.'s while we are out of town ... Glad you had a super Easter and hope to see you soon --
    Betty :)

  8. Hey- I just viewed your slideshow there on the that your house? did you have a sale in your house? I like the furniture that's for sure!!
