Happy Easter

We're having a nice Easter at our house. We started with my mom coming over to join in the festivities. She went to say good morning to Davan while Anthony and I finished up with hiding the eggs:

Davan hunted for eggs:

Sorted eggs:

And opened eggs:

In Davan's eggs this year were puzzle pieces (this one), three pairs of socks (one sock per egg), and Annie's Chocolate Bunny Grahams.

Oscar was right in the middle of the action:

All of the cats got a couple of cat treats for Easter, too.

We had individual pies for breakfast:

(My mom and I shared a little green drink, too, to get my greens for the meal in.)

We all enjoyed our pies with a crust of oats, some walnuts and dates, filling of fruit - cuties, kiwis and strawberries (except for Anthony, who doesn't like strawberries) and topping of chocolate sauce (cashews, dates, raw cacao powder with water to make it saucy). We all put in our own fruit and then topped with either raw cacao nibs, chocolate chips or both in my mom's case.

They were yummy:
After breakfast, we started on the puzzle:

Then Davan gave us her gift, which started with a treasure hunt with point to point clues and culminated in a show, created by Davan, story and all, explaining the origins of the Easter Bunny:

It was a cute show and a creative idea for where the Easter Bunny came from. At the end of the show, we were each presented with three Easter eggs. In one was a foil bunny with food treats inside, in another were two coupons tailored to the recipient (I got one for help with dinner and one for her doing all the chores one morning) and a picture each in the third.

I hope you're having a nice Easter, however you celebrate or even if you don't!

  1. Very Cool Puzzle. I am making myself get some work done around the house then I just want to read. Have a new Jodi Picoult book from the library. Handel With Care. Started it last night and it is her usual good read.
