We hope everyone had just the kind of day that you wanted ~ we came home from the lake and had dinner at son Ted and Miki's ~ ham and all the trimmings!  They just returned from spring break in Florida so they are nice and brown and have fun stories to tell about two ER visits with Luke!  One for a torn off toenail and the other, a badly sprained ankle!!  They do know how to have fun!!

I want you to take a close look at these eggs, done by friend, Sherry Davis.  She dyes them with silk scarves and ties ~ absolutely beautiful!!  I've known Sherry for years and she is one of most creative gals on the planet!!  Don't they make a great centerpiece?

Yesterday, we made a trip to the lake and went to the Moose Club for lunch.  They were having an Easter party for the kids and The Easter Bunny stopped by and had her picture taken with Tad! Such a cute and sweet bunny!

We haven't been to the lake since January and it was great just to be up by the water, if only until today.  Went out with our friends in the evening for a little libation and then on to Mon Ami where we danced and danced!!  It was fun ~ Darryl Gatlin playing all kinds of music that people our age just love!

I hooked on my Rooster rug ~ it's looking good!  And this week, I get to start on a fun project at the dentist!  I broke a tooth last week in Ligonier ~ now I have to have a root canal, a post and a crown!!!!!  Do you hear cha-ching?!  Yikes ~ I dread this but putting it all into perspective ~ I'm not ill ~ I'm not broken ~ it's just a tooth and FOUR visits in the dentist's chair  to get everything done!  That's the part that makes me crazier than the cost!! And I'm just guessing he's not looking forward to it either!!  I'll keep you posted on the rug and my tooth!!  Will the fun never end?!!  Have a good day tomorrow!

Sorry to hear about your tooth, but I must say doing crown preps was one of my favorite procedures as an assitant. And Yeppers definitely some ching ching!! Good luck with it all!!! I want to see more of the chicken rug. I want to learn to do backgrounds like that!!!

I'm glad you had a lovely Easter. Very cute photo of Tad and the bunny!
Sorry about the tooth. I hope the dentist isn't able to buy a new Mercedes by the time you are done. (kidding) lol

Sounds like you had a great Easter. I do hope Luke is OK. Ouch!
Cute pic of Tad with the EB.
Looking forward to seeing progress on your chicken rug. I hooked a little on my sheep rug ~ of course not as much as I had planned!
Pug hugs :)

Love the photo of Tad with the Easter Bunny. What joy is happening there.

So sorry about your tooth. I feel your pain as it was about this time last year I started getting my teeth pulled and preparing for dentures. It took quite a while to do everything, much more than four visits and mucho dineros.

Can't wait to see more of your rug. You do the neatest work!

Oh Alice.....I was so sorry to hear about your tooth. I detest going to the dentist. I have my dentist "conditioned" however!!!! He says.....if it hurts.....just raise your left hand.
I say................"if you hurt me, reconsider where my right hand is and how fast it can get to you". He always looks "down" and gets my point. He is the most caring, gentle dentist I have been to in 7 years. I know you would rather be buying wool, but we love that pretty smile of yours!!!! Pay the $$$$$ and smile pretty girl. xoxoxoxox
