Dorothy, A Bunny, Some Smiles and Eggs

So much has happened in the last week in picture land. We've had terrible storms that dropped massive hail, winds and tornadoes in our area. There were some Wizard of Oz potential moments around here. We thankfully made it with no damage, however there aremany people in our area lost just about everything. The tornadoes missed our home by just miles and my work by just about the same. So thankful!

Front yard after the first round of "attacks."

Sky looking good huh?

Back yard on our deck. I could have shoveled it afterwards.

Of course this weekend was Easter and we had a great time with our families.

Starting on Good Friday, Mia and I went to the local Knights of Columbus to pick up some fried fish and sides, at Hubby's request. It brought back great memories of my childhood and the fish fries we would have at our church. I may or may not have picked up a few desserts on the way out the door. Those ladies know how to bake! Once we got home, we had a little fried fish dinner on the deck before the storms came in:

So big, she ate dinner on her patio chair instead of her high chair (small tear). My favorite flower this time of year. I like to keep fresh flowers in the house when I can. It makes me feel good.

The goods from the Easter Bunny:

Who wouldn't be excited about getting a ton of presents on Christmas, oh wait, excuse me, I mean Easter.
