Happy Easter


Happy Easter, Happy Spring, Happy Happy Everything!

We are looking forward to going to Charlie and Lindsey’s house for Easter dinner. I am going to take my niece Tammy’s carrot cake. Such a treat after dieting for over a month and a half. But I will only have a sliver of a piece. Just enough to say ooohhh that was yummy!
