What a lovely day we had

Well we had such a busy day on Sunday. I got up very early and set the garden for our egg hunt, I made some bunting and an Easter egg hunt sign also a big Easter bunny. By 10:30 there where twenty of us, we ate sausage and bacon sandwiches followed by an Easter egg hunt for the children. I had painted them all a basket for them to collect their eggs, there where squeals of delight as they found their eggs, then there was some playing while the adults had a catch up as we are not all together very often. Later we had lunch and then the table was set with a lovely white damask table cloth and we had an afternoon tea of chocolate bunny biscuits, a Simnel cake and some fairy cakes that I had made on Saturday.Later on we had an egg and spoon race and pin the ears on the bunny the adults played this game and we had such a laugh it was great fun. We were so busy that we didn't have time for the children to wear their aprons that I had made ,and i had also made the girls a tutu each and had bought some bunny ears for them may be i can take photos at a later date ,well that was our Easter i hope you all had a lovely Easter too. Hugs and best wishes Pat. xx

Hi Pat!!!!
My lovely gift came in the mail today! THANK YOU!!!! I love the buttons and the packaging and the chocolate bunny! You put such thought into it!

I made you a card the very day I found out that I had won, but I don't know how to get it to you (there wasn't an address on the box). Could you get me your address? You can try e-mail ccrst@live.com or if that doesn't work, just leave me a comment and I will not publish it.

Thank you!!!!!!!

Such a delightful Eastertime it looks like you enjoyed with your little ones. They are all such little darlings. Reminds me of Easter when my children were all small. Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving the sweet message.

Hi Pat,
Would you be interested in doing the 'Pay it Forward"?
I just need one more person. I know that you've done the lovely giveaway, & might not want to do anything else at present. That's fine, no problem, but if you are interested, can you e-mail me? Would you be able to e-mail me your address anyway, as I would like to send something to you?

Have a lovely weekend : )

I am absolutely gobsmacked at the amount of time and effort you must have gone to for this wonderful occasion for your family. I didn't make any effort as we were travelling back home from a short break. I used to do treasure hunts when the children were younger but never on your sort of scale!
