*Spring Time Colours*

Happy Easter weekend everyone... I hope that you are able to spend some time enjoying the company of family and friends.  We had a quiet day around the house yesterday topped off with a yummy feast of Chinese Food for dinner.  Tomorrow I am hosting the big turkey dinner.... there will be 8 adults and one 21 month old around our table.  I always like to have a full table for holiday meals... it's a big meal to cook so I might as feed lots of people.

Of course, that means a lot of work for me tomorrow morning getting two pies baked and prepping the turkey, stuffing and veggies...

My secret is that I won't be cleaning up after dinner after doing all the food preparation.

I am a little sad this year as this is the first Easter in several years that my sister and niece haven't joined us.  Last year we were all in Regina since Easter weekend was the same weekend as Mom's birthday and the several years before that, we celebrated here.  I'm sure there will be few tears on Sunday, having our first Easter without Mom as well.

I decided to play with some spring colours with my card for the current FallToLayout over at the Clean and Simple blog (check them out in my sidebar and play along with the sketch for this week!!!)...  it's about time it started to feel like spring in Calgary!
