Easter Centerpiece

My pet peeve is large, tall centerpieces for an actual meal, I love these gorgeous centerpieces…just not when we sit down to eat…

I shopped last week for something that I could use that would be low enough for pleasant conversation…

These little ceramic birdies are actually candleholders…perfect for a tealight on a future occasion…

…it was delicious and we had lots of leftovers…but most of all I think I’ll keep “the guy”…he’s a Renaissance man…

…and this girl…well, she made an Easter “basket” for her little brother…he’s 24 and loves beef jerky…(see her curls…they’re natural)…

…the Easter Basket “recipient”…These two make my heart leap with joy because they love each other so much and treat each other so respectfully…and to sweeten the whole deal is this next guy…

…a son-in-law that we love as one of our very own (he didn’t get an Easter basket but he sure enjoyed that ham…)

…and I am one happy camper…my beautiful family was blessed to be together on this most special of holidays…the celebration of “Resurrection”

thank you for allowing us to be a small part of your lives
