My Budding Artist...

Another proud mama moment! My 10 year old daughter proudly showing off the Easter basket first prize she won in a local community newspaper's drawing contest. The theme of course was Easter, and she had to come up with a drawing showing something to do with Easter. She made a very colorful drawing of the Easter Bunny high up in the air in a hot air balloon dropping Easter baskets and colored Easter eggs with parachutes attached... very original for sure! She really loves art and was thrilled to have won. My drawing absolutely sucks, so I know she must get it from my mom, who is actually very talented in the art department. Congrats Deja on your first prize art contest win!

Happy Easter!

Wishing you all a wonderful Easter (if you celebrate it that is...if not, then have a Happy Sunday :)

Here we didn't do much, dummy me slipped on an empty trash bag on the next to last step coming down the stairs early this morning and I landed hard on my right leg... ouch!

I'm sore, and swollen, but thankfully just bruised and nothing serious. At least nothing that a little rest, ice, and elevation won't help. I'll probably use some hot rice packs too, and some anti-inflammatory meds I have on hand for these type of things.

So the Easter dinner has taken a raincheck, until next weekend lol. I don't think many people were upset, since it is just me and my daughter and hubby to begin with. (they were satisfied with the breakfast pizza we got after sleeping in this morning).

Next weekend I hope to see the grandkids and maybe have a little egg hunt with them since they spent today with their mom and other grandparents. Enjoy the rest of the day and have a wonderful week ahead!
