Monday Mail Call and Where the Weekend Went

A package arrived...just in time for Easter.
It was my PAFA team Easter Basket Swap

It had been a stress filled day of standardized testing at school, 
so a friendly package was a bright spot in my day.

My sweet little Easter basket 
was filled with candy and a handmade prim egg...
...made from a vintage quilt.

...And is that bunny real chocolate??

Sure looks like it!

Thank you, Valerie.
I am just delighted!

Was the Easter Bunny good to you?

Seems that bunny finds us, no matter how far we travel!

We spent the weekend with Mom and Grammy at her Assisted Living Facility.
We went for a drive to look at the water,
and dyed Easter Eggs in the Activity Room.

Several residents had guests for Easter dinner and were seated in small groups in the activity room.
She really enjoyed having us with her for the holiday.
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.

Take care,
~Natalie

I love that first picture of your cat looking at the package, so cute and funny! Also, the one of your cat sniffing the bunny, lol.

Wonderful Easter basket of goodies you received from Valerie! Looks like you all had a wonderful time with your mom. She's looking great! How fun to dye eggs. I'm sure it brought back lots of memories of when the girls were little.
