Easter Preparations...

Getting ready for Easter here at the Holbrook Homestead. The kiddos arrived yesterday morning on the train. That was a first for all of us and we may use it again since it may cost less to do that than what it costs us in gasoline to drive to pick them up. I have to admit though that I was a bit nervous about it, but all was well in the end. We picked them up in the morning and stopped for breakfast together. I love those first couple of hours with them when we are getting caught up on all the things that are going on in their lives.
I am not sure if we are going to color eggs this year or not. We usually use my cake decorating air brush to do them, so if Trav wants to we will but if not I will just make pickled eggs. Last year my eggs looked like they were camo colored after he was done with them. LOL!
I will be making Country Pineapple Casserole to take to my Mom's for dinner tomorrow. It is so yummy, like sweet dressing for ham. You can find the recipe for it here. It is one of those delicious Taste of Home recipes! (Speaking of Taste of Home, my sister and I are going to the ToH Cooking School on April 3rd... More info here.)
The card pictured above is one I made quite some time ago. The cardstock is all Bazzill. Easter eggs are done with Dreamweaver white embossing paste and a Dreamweaver brass stencil. After the paste dried I sponge stenciled with pigment inks, just blending them as I worked across the image.
Hope the bunny lets a sweet treat in your basket!
Take care!
