The week before Easter I was baking cookies and freezing them for the Family Easter Baskets I would make for the Annual Easter Picnic Sunday afternoon after Church.  It was beautiful Saturday, so made my assembly line outside on the patio table.  Layers of peanut butter, oatmeal and chocolate chip cookies.  Toss in some colored grass and some candy and tie up with some netting.  Made labels with my Watercolor bunnies in a pot.  A couple of soft and cuddly rabbits for the Issac and Matthew.

It's hard to believe these little great grandsons are getting so big.  Issac in the top picture will be in 1st grade, and Matthew is 4.  They were worn out from playing Easter games ~ egg toss, sack races and looking for Easter Eggs. 

I didn't have any commercial eye dye left after dying eggs last week with Nick and Jon so came up with my own dye.  Raspberry, blueberry tea bags, a little vinegar and some food coloring.  Actually I think they turned out quite nice.

Celebrating Resurrection Sunday in Church with our son and family and then a wonderful afternoon at the park with everyone.


  1. Your baskets turned out just wonderful! I love the variety of things you put in them! Great idea with the eggs, too!

    I wore mittens and a coat on Easter Sunday..and look at you in your pretty sundress! haha.

    1. All that work to make them look pretty....and they couldn't wait to tear off the ribbon and get to the cookies. Maybe next year I'll just put cookies in a plastic bag! HaHa...The fun was MINE putting them together.

      Oh my, I can hardly imagine mitten and a coat on Easter being a CA gal all my life.

  2. what a wonderful Easter gift! Your grand children look all worn out, such good looking fella's,

    1. Oh Laurie...they were pooped...the park was on a hill, and they were up and down, playing games and chasing after Easter eggs.

      They are darling boys, and I could just eat them up!

  3. Wow I would not never ever had come up with trying to dye with tea, what a clever idea you had there. Your Easter baskets are pretty too.

    1. Hey Rosy...Every time I drink that bright raspberry tea, I think how pretty the color is...that got me thinking...Necessity, the mother of invention...HaHa

  4. You are beyond clever , my dear Wanda.
    I would have never thought of that for dye.
    You always amaze me with the things you do for your friends and family.
    I'm anxious to see you sometime soon.

    1. As I mentioned to Rosy...I always thought that bright raspberry color of tea I was drinking was a special color.

      Miss you so...can't wait till June, if not sooner.

  5. Your dyes came out beautifully, Wanda!! I love your sweet Easter prizes and that you enjoyed this special time with your loved ones. =D blessings ~ tanna

    1. I had to laugh..they were more intersted in the cookies that my time spent making them look pretty.... But I had fun!!! It was fun putting them together.

      Love and Hugs

  6. This іѕ really аttention-grаbbing, You're a very professional blogger. I've joinеd уouг rss fеed anԁ sit
    up fοr in seaгch of morе of уour magnificent post.

    Also, I have shагed your wеbѕіte in my soсial

    Look at mу website ... social network

  7. I think that everythіng tyрed was actually
    very rеаsonablе. Hоwever, what about this?
    what if you аԁԁeԁ a little сontent?

    I mean, I don't wish to tell you how to run your website, but suppose you added something that makes people want more? I mean "A GLIMPSE OF EASTER" is kinda boring. You should glance at Yahoo's frοnt ρagе аnd
    watch hоw thеy сreаte aгticlе titles to gгаb
    pеоplе to clіck. Yοu might аԁd а
    video оr a гelated ρic oг twο
    to grab reаdeгs intеresteԁ about everythіng've written. Just my opinion, it would bring your posts a little bit more interesting.
