Easter - Better late than never

Some easter-y goodness to share from last weekend

Daddy helping JD open an Egg

Lilli showing me the pick "gooey stuff" inside her egg

Using the inlaws car as a seat coz it was so wet and muddy underfoot

Jarvis being a little over confident with his ability to consume chocolate, and we realise later in the day that this is the FIRST time he has had chocolate ever, poor little blighter is 18 months old.

Lottery Swap

This is the beautiful gift i received in the lottery swap from Rachael on Ravelry. this is a wonderful swap idea and many thanks to bmansmum for coordinating it. It works like this:
you put up an item for the lottery from your stash or that is within your ability to create (i put up a custom handspun yarn). then the names and the items get put into a hat and drawn out what ever is drawn out with our name is your prize!!!

some people have cats, other have dogs, people in apartments have birds, people on farms have horses - we have - Bob. This is the animal that my children call their pet, he is wild (not caged) he showed up about 2 years ago and has not left since. Bob climbs the stairs on our back verandah and sits on our verandah in the sun, he is so tame that we can hand feed him fruit. the kids just love having Bob as their pet.
