We saw lots of lovely homes at last week’s party.
It’s hard to believe that Easter will be here in just a few short days!
What are you doing to celebrate the holiday?
Our family will be going to church, per the usual, but we’ll have an extra special time as ALL my kids and grandkids will be with me worshipping the Lord!
My daughter and her ‘fam’ attend the same church as I do, but when my son met his wife and then subsequently moved north, it was kind of a no-brainer for him to start attending the church that his father-in-law pastors. 🙂
But this Sunday…
… they will make the trek south (2 hour drive!) with the two littles and the newborn, and attend the church that he grew up in with us! I’m VERY excited, to say the least.
Then it’s off to my sister’s home where ALL the family will gather. That’s about 25 of us!!!
We are blessed!
But enough about our holiday… be sure to let me know what YOU are doing in the comments below!
This week, I’m featuring some last minute ‘eggsciting’ DIYs and decor that you can do with the kids, or add to your spring home!
Be sure to hop on over to My Family Thyme and Reinvented Delaware to check out SIX additional features from TTA!
If you haven’t been featured at MWA this week, you just may be featured there!
Be on the look-out! Our 200th party is just on the horizon and the three hostesses are getting ready for a give-away!
More details to follow in the coming weeks!
And now for some tips!

Weekly Household Tip
Puzzles have become a ‘staple’ in our home, mainly because Mom enjoys them and it helps her focus on something other than her wandering thoughts at night.
But storing them has become a bit of an issue. So, instead of keeping all the boxes, I transferred the puzzles into zippered mesh bags. I simply cut out the box top and included it inside the bag along with any posters the puzzles comes with. I even ordered some smaller bags to keep the edge pieces in for the harder puzzles, and tucked the smaller bag into the larger one.
Why not just use plastic storage bags? Because these mesh bags are heavier, and they also have an easy-to-open-and-close zipper for my mom’s not-so-nimble fingers. 🙂
Weekly Blogging Tip
When choosing plugins (“a small software application that extends the features and functions of a WordPress website”) for your blog, be sure it’s something you REALLY need and that it is a ‘lightweight’ plugin. Lightweight means that it won’t slow-down your site.
One of the best ways to find out general info about a plugin is to join a trusted Facebook group that addresses tech issues for blogs. One of my favorites is Blogging on WordPress. I’ve learned A LOT on this FB group, and I’m sure you will, too!
Now let’s party!

Julie, so happy for you that all your family will be with you on Easter Sunday and that you can all worship together! What a blessing!
I was having some trouble with my computer the other day when I was leaving a reply to thank you for those beautiful Easter watercolor prints. So, I want to make sure that you know how much I loved them and how much I appreciated you making them available to us. They are absolutely adorable! You always bring us such lovely prints. I just thank you so much for each and every one. I am going to get some watercolor paper — which you suggested — as these prints will look even prettier on this paper.
How thoughtful of you to make the puzzle pieces easier for your dear Mom. This is a great idea! God will bless you for all you do in caring for your dear Mom.
Thanks, again, Julie, for the watercolor prints and all you do for us. I appreciate you! God Bless you, dear friend, at Easter == and every day.
Have a wonderful time with your family!
Have a wonderful Easter, Mary-Ann… I think I did reply to your comment on the new printables post. Thank you so much! You are always such and encouragement!
Have a blessed Easter. Jesus Christ has risen. We will have 3 memers of my husbnad’s family and five of our own joining us for Easter dinner – a huge feast is to come! I told my granddaughter we’re having bird nests – actually nests shaped from rice krispy treats filled with a little tinted coconut and 3 eggs (peanut M&Ms!) I’ll make my 3-layer coconut cake with cream cheeese frosting and apple pie.
Thank you for fixing the link up issue. We will be visiting our kids for Easter too. We go to church, have a big ham dinner afterwards, oh, there’s an Easter breakfast at the church too, we hunt for Easter eggs, open Easter baskets…all the good stuff!
What a lovely time you will have on Sunday, Amy! All this and Jesus, too! Hallelujah!
Glad that you will be spending the Holiday with family!!
