Happy Easter


This is my first posting from our new home in Ohio. 

We finally got connected to Internet and WiFi yesterday.

It's gray, dark and overcast here in Ohio this Easter morning.  

I slept better last night and woke up this morning sort of concerned I only had one Easter decoration out in our new home.

Now I should be easier on myself since we just moved in about two weeks ago and many of our boxes are not unpacked yet.

Then as I was lying there in bed this morning I remembered we put the Christmas bins and other holiday bins in our lower level storage closet.  

Easy to get to. 

New Kitchen!

I jumped out of bed and went downstairs, opened the Easter bin and carried up in my arms as much of my Easter decorations as I could. 

Bunnies placed in the front windows.

I had fun going around our new home and setting up the decorations.  

It seems silly putting up the decorations on Easter when it will be over so soon now.  

But I may just leave them up this week to enjoy.

Well, at least the bunnies can stay out for Spring.  

Our flat screen TVs were hung the other day.

There is a long punch list of items still to be finish in our new home.

Gutters were installed two days ago.

The screened in porch and deck aren't finished yet either.

And we have to wait until the weather warms up to have the driveway and sidewalk poured.

Now our yard is all mud…thick horrible clay.

A different view for us out of our screened in porch slider.

We are having Easter dinner at my brother-in-law's house.  

And instead of having to drive 450 miles like we had to in the past now we have less than 10 miles to drive to his house. 

We love having our family close to us.  

That is our Easter blessing!

I hope you have a Blessed and Happy Easter!
