Happy Easter

The eggs were dyed earlier on Saturday .. Even with my kids being all grown up, I still enjoy dyeing Easter eggs .. I think they turned out really pretty.

and the baskets all put together .. this is the 29th year of the Walker's helping the Easter Bunny .. yep, for the last 29 years DH and I, with kids, have filled baskets and delivered them late Saturday night to friends and family. We leave them on front porches so they are there when they get their Sunday morning newspaper or get ready to leave for Church. It's a tradition that we have really enjoyed as a family .. and this year, Chris and Monica decided to start their own tradition of delivery to a few of their friends and family. I really enjoyed learning that they were carrying on the tradition .. here's the baskets we delivered this year .. lots of hopping around!


I hope you all have a wonderful Easter with your families and I hope you find your joy in your stitches ...

I'm grateful for playing the Easter Bunny ...

I could never get my eggs that vibrant. Yours are gorgeous! That is such a great thing you are doing with the baskets. And, for your children to be carrying that on.

That is really nice of you Michelle! We dyed eggs yesterday. The kids got a new outfit, Bibles and a chocolate Easter bunny. Then we stuffed 24 large eggs with candy and dollar bills (not every one of them though!) and they had an egg hunt this AM and now we are getting ready for church!! Happy Blessed Easter.
