Sunday Snap!

Here is my cool little dude - we were enjoying the warm sunshine in the garden yesterday and having an 'au revoir' barbecue.  Suddenly the house is very quiet again with just my hubby and I here once more :( 

I did try to hide in the car when the family were leaving, but they found me and had to drag me out again!!  Even little Alfred looked sad to be leaving us.





Hot cross Bun

Finally, I have asked my special man if he could make you all a chocolate egg as a treat for Easter.  Here he is busily mixing the chocolate :


And here is the finished product - especially for all of you, my dear bloggy friends!

Darn! They found you. giggle - would've been nice if they hadn't.

Hope you have a lovely Easter sweetheart. Enjoy the day!

Desiree said...

What would poor Hubby have said if you'd managed to stay hidden and he was left at home all on his own!

Your weather looked perfect in the garden yesterday! It's our turn for rain and cold now. Easter always signals the switch to our rainy season and it arrived today, so the timing is spot-on!

Your grandson is too, too cute!

Thanks so much for that glamorous egg and other chocolate treats. You've spoilt us :)

Becky said...

Awww.. I'm so sorry that they found you!! I guess you need to find a better hiding spot next time! :) That little "dude" is precious! And the "other guy", he's kinda' cute, too! Lucky YOU!! Thank you for the Easter candy!! ~ God Bless!! ((HUGS))

Good looks run through your entire family, Thisisme, starting with you! Even Alfred is a dapper young fellow. I am delighted that you and your family shared an extra long visit. Chin up - it won't be long till you're all together again. I could eat a bushel o' buns right now! Happy Easter, dear friend!

SkippyMom - darn indeed!! I did try to lock all the doors, but that didn't work either! LOL!! Happy Easter to you too little friend.

Desiree - Not sure if hubby would have noticed that I wasn't there!!! Sorry you've got the rain there now. The weather we have had ever since the family arrived has been quite wonderful, so that was a real blessing. Enjoy your part of the egg. Always good to hear from you!

Becky - Yes, it was a pity they found me. I had my passport in my pocket as well!!!! Blessings to you too dear friend on this Easter Sunday.

Shady - Thank you for your kind comments. A bushel of buns indeed!!! Anyway, how many children have you chased off your lawn so far?!! Take care my dear friend.

Teresa - in the Middle Side of Life said...

what a sweetie! it sounds so much nicer to say "garden" than what we call the "yard." LOL!

have a happy Easter. so sorry they had to leave to go home.

Teresa - in the Middle Side of Life said...

oh... hit the darn publish button too soon - i was so busy thinking about the sweetness of your little man that i totally forgot to say thanks for the wonderful chocolate treats. yummy!

PencilGirl said...

I know that feeling.. Whenever my cousins visit, the house is just bustling with activity, and then they leave, and the house seems so empty.. :| Although I've never really tried hiding in the car.. I'll try it next time.. I might have better luck! :D :D :P
The pictures are gorgeous as ever, and thank you so much for the chocolate egg! It's just delicious! :D Happy Easter!!
I've passed on an award to you.. I'd love for you to accept it.. :)

Odie Langley said...

Beautiful pictures & memories to enjoy until you see them again. Wishing you and your Hubby a very happy Easter and a great coming week.

Teresa - lovely to hear from you. I agree, it does sound rather strange when all my American friends refer to it as a yard. To us, here, a yard is just a small piece of concrete that usually comes with a terraced house! Glad you enjoyed the chocolate!

PencilGirl - it is strange for a while when visitors leave, isn't it. Hope you're having a lovely weekend. I will pop over to you now to look at my Award. That is very sweet of you!

Odie - Thank you Odie. Hope you have a good week also.

Lavi said...

It's a bit late, but I still wanted to wish you a happy Easter. Family celebrations are the best way to spend the holidays. The chocolate egg looks fabulous!

colenic said...

Wishing you a very happy easter....I hope that your visit with your family was good and I am sorry that you were found...saying goodbye is always tough...hugs and peace to you..

Bouncin' Barb said...

It must be a little strange having just the two of you again. But they'll all be back soon enough for the wedding. Thank you for the chocolate. That's the best way to eat it. Calories = NONE! Have a wonderful day!

Thisisme. said...

Lavi - thank you so much for dropping by with your Easter greetings! Happy Easter to you too.

Colenic - Yes, it's not easy saying goodbye again, but we will be meeting up quite a lot over the summer months, so lots to look forward to! Warmest wishes to you.

Bouncin'Barb = yes, I'll be seeing lots of the family during the summer. Yay, no calories. Can't be bad! Hope you're settling in, with not too much bother from the neighbours!

Oh, the little hat is so adorable! I just love it when kids wear hats. They always do it with such flair.

Jo-Anne Mother and Nanna said...

This is the nearest I got to a hot Cross Bun this year.

kneesandpaws said...

Easter Monday has me down a little too, and I didn't even have to say goodbye to anyone. I hope that you're not too sad while they're away.
I also want to thank you for the review you posted about The King's Speech. It finally arrived in my mailbox and I had a lovely evening watching it with Richard.

flowers on my table said...

Oooh what lovely chocolate eggs - thankyou. Your grandson is gorgeous. I am sure it must seem awfully quiet at your place now. Have a little rest, I am sure you have been working very hard. Thanks for your lovely comments, love Linda x

Pearson Report said...

Yum! I love all things chocolate!

Do you know...when I went shopping for Easter treats I bought chocolate treats as if I had four children and oodles of grandchildren - then I keep almost all of it for me.

Well...I do give a little to my daughter (the one and only) - because I love her!

True confessions...

Lovely post - I enjoyed it!

On My Soapbox - yes,his hat was gorgeous. It's a one especially for little boys - not a grown up one!

Gawgus things - he did look like a really cool dude in that hat!

Sandra - it was really funny!

LyndyLouMac in Italy - sorry you didn't get a real hot cross bun!!

kneesandpaws - hope you're feeling a little brighter again now. So glad that you enjoyed The King's Speech. I thought it was wonderful!
