An Easter Celebration and a nightstand update

I Love Easter and the reason we celebrate...the resurrection.

Easter Break...Groveland, CA

We started our Celebration with about a BILLION eggs to decorate, thanks Grandma!

This was one of my favorite parts of the Celebration. We got a knock at the door, the night before Easter. As we all ran to the front of the house, we heard a car honk.  Weird....we ran outside only to find our house decorated.  This banner was set up, the lanters were lit and we were in ahhh. What a beautiful way to start our Easter Celebration. I wish I could have left it up all Summer.  We felt so special..

 We had baked breads, spring salads, casseroles and beautiful pastries...



 All those eggs, I think we counted over 200...had to be hidden so the games could begin.

Gettin on the game face

 Even the matriarch of the family was in on it...we love our Nana!

Ok, in terms of the nightstand...This weekend = End Result
