We had a lovely Easter Sunday with family and enjoyed a roast beef meal followed by creamed rice for dessert.  Sorry I didn’t take a picture of our meal – it was true home goodness. Shirley was our invited guest,  and she made the bestest horseradish gravy.  Thanks Shirley.

Here is our little bunnykins,our grand daughter, Lilian.  She had a lovely day and really got the taste for chocolate.

Okay, Shirley made me show this – my new glasses.  I have got away from red and purple and gone chunkier, black and grey/silver.  It took 3 visits back to the optometrist for adjustments to get them just right.  It is a weird prescription!  Of course I have to have a pimple right in between my eyebrows – guess it is from the recent consumption of a heap of chocolate

We gave Lilian this little doll crib which hubby painted up for her.  It was her mothers and was just a stained wood.  I made a mattress and pillow for it. (forgot to take before and after pictures )  Because Lilian’s birthday is right before Christmas, we give her a little something at Easter.
It was a big surprise for all of us when hubby made her a swing which he has attached to our big shady tree.  She loves it!!
Today being 25 April is the day we remember the ANZACS.

Great post... she looks so adorable in her bunny ears. I think there were a lot of people that consumed a bit too much chocolate this weekend (me included he he). Just love your new glasses... I think they look great. Glad you had such a nice Easter break (oh and that lunch sounded so good too!!!)

Thank you for a lovely family Easter Day Di. Your new glass look terrific. And I can tell everyone that Lily is just as gorgeous a little girl as she looks. I loved the look of joy she had on her face when granpa pushed her on the swing.

The wrapper you made for your blocks is awesome. Judy certainly is a loving and generous friend.

What a lovely happy post Dianne. Lillian is such a beautiful child, you must be constantly told that!! I think your new glasses are awesome, and perhaps when my next prescription is due I'll make a change. Love the little crib, it came up beautifully. Creamed rice was a family favourite for us growing up, well all milk puddings - growing up on a dairy farm.........
