A Very "Hoppy" Easter!

There are so many things that I love about holiday's!!! Getting together with family/friends, yummy food, and normally a day off work!!

I am so lucky that this weekend I got to take both the Friday and Monday off for Easter. It allowed the weekend to be totally stress free and relaxed!!

It all started on Thursday night when some girlfriends and I gathered at Sharon's for a crafty evening! We made these adorable book marks that I intend on showing off at our next book club meeting!!

Friday morning I slept in......till 9!! It might not seem late to some people but for me it was amazing!! It was an extra 4 hours then what I normally get! Being that I was so rested Ryan and I decided to check out a matinee and use up a gift card that we have been saving for a date! We saw Source Code which I highly recommend to anyone!! Very intense movie!

I had been waiting for Friday evening for almost 6 weeks! One of my best friends Amanda and her boyfriend Josh, were home to visit from Calgary!! We had supper, played Domino's till midnight, and polished off a few bottles of wine! It was such a fun visit that was LONG overdue!

Saturday morning was my families day to celebrate Easter. We had an amazing meal prepared by my Mom and cracked open our Easter poppers! The boys loved their paper crowns!

I have to say that Easter is SOOO much fun with little ones. Faith is now starting to understand the whole, "go find chocolate" part!

Her little brother Clark, was not very interested in the whole looking for eggs part but that was O.K with this Auntie (TiTi). I got to snuggle with him the whole time instead!!

Ryan and I were also remembered by the Easter Bunny with my favorite, a crispy bunny!! Yummy!

Sunday morning I awoke to realize that the Easter Bunny had shown up again this year!! There were two over filled baskets and one Easter Lily!

It was fun going through all our Easter goodies. In my basket I had Easter stick on tattoo's! Ryan and I HAD to put them on before church! Doesn't he look so tough with his bunny tattoo? ha ha!

After a beautiful Easter service at Church it was off to Ryan's parents for a visit and supper!! We had a blast in the sun shooting golf balls, playing Yahtzee and then sharing an Easter meal together! The best part of all, being together!

I am so thankful that Ryan and I both had Monday off!! I get the itch in the spring to get lots of things done around the house and it really helps having a full day to do so! It was on with rubber boots and old clothes yesterday to spring clean the yard!

All the flower beds and gardens are ready for some new plants!

It was a weekend FULL of activity but it was so much fun! I got to see most of the people that I love, all in the span of 4 days!

How was your Easter weekend?? Hope you all have a wonderful week!

    It's lovely value enough for me. In my opinion, if all web owners and bloggers made just right content as you did, the web can be much more useful than ever before.
