So...if chickens get up when the rooster crows...

...when do ducks get up?

...

...

At the quack of dawn, of course!

I bet you'd like to find the person who gave me this YOLK book and smack them, wouldn't you.

But don't smack me because I have stuff to tell you.

First of all...guess who the winner is from Saturdays giveaway?

This was definitely a first for me....

Because this is what Mr. Random Org told me...

Here are your random numbers:

I love this giveaway! Girl you have a serious Easter collection! You need to see Debbie Dabble at http://debbie-dabble.blogspot.com/. I love the giveaway! I love Easter and I love visiting Jenny! Happy Saturday to you! You know I already follow you!


Congratulations Anne! Please e-mail me right away with your address so Jen can get your package shipped off to you!

And now for the bad news.

The lamb cookie cutters. Accckk!!!! Those cookies were hard to decorate. ...and even our Uncle Joe who owns a sheep farm in the frozen tundra of South Dakota had trouble... ...but the rest of the cookie decorating went pretty well...


...and the swing got quite a workout...
... and three little girls learned how to climb walls and trees... ... and people enjoyed the sunshine...especially those from the frozen North...


... and everyone got into the egg decorating...



... and it was really a fun day!

Can I offer you a cookie now?
...and since I'm on your sweet side now I'm wondering if you could send a little prayer and good wishes to our blog and Alphabe-Thursday friend, Kathy C. She is having knee replacement surgery today and it would be nice if you could send your positive healing wishes toward her and her husband, Jeff.

Happy Monday! Hope yours is sweet!

Congratulations to your Winner!

OT but... Is Blogger having troubles? I can't post pics. And now I see that I can't see your Header pic. ????????

Nancy C said...

Wonderful time! Love it!

RNSANE said...

Ummm, I would absolutely love a cookie right this very minute! They are too cute.

I haven't done a thing for Easter. With three sons, all adults, I kind of lost my enthusiasm. At any rate, my boys will join a few others in Las Vegas this weekend for my middle son, Alex's, bachelor party. He's getting married May 7 and I will finally have a girl in my family!!

Coralie Cederna Johnson said...

Yes! Please offer me some cookies and I'll lick the spoon and bowl from the frosting too! It looks FAB!

(I couldn't find Kathy C's link but I definitely would like to wish her well...I am having a knee replacement the end of April and I'm not looking forward to it. Well, I'm looking forward to having it over with! No fun!)

Anyway...save the ones with the most frosting for me!!! I don't care if they are full of fat and sugar...so there!

Dee said...

Hi, looks like an egg-stra fun and sweet kind of day wih your adorable family. Praying for your friends surgery and quick recovery.

{:miss v:} said...

How fun! I LOVE making sugar cookies to decorate! Just look at some of my previous posts! haha!

I'm hoping to get around to coloring eggs this week. My son is older now so I think he'd enjoy it a lot!

Have a great week! ;)

Terri and Bob said...

You seriously crack me up. Go see my hair at my blog. You'll wonder which one of us is really cracked up.

Ms. Anthropy said...

Sure glad all the problems today aren't because of my computer! Finally able to see your pictures. The header still isn't coming in.

Jennifer said...

You're making me crave cookies. Not fair. :P

Aunt lodi said...

Sun. looks like a fun time. I will take any cookie. Have not baked anything. Congrats to winner and prayers for Kathy C.

Brenda said...

Pretty Easter decorating going on at your house for sure! Sent my prayer up for Mrs C this morning. We have became good friends in this blogging community. Had a post it note in my desk area to remind me. But Jenny you a good friend and much better looking that that post it note!

Mighty M said...

Looks like so much fun! I love your pictures - the girl holding the bunny cookie outside is one of my favorites!

So I lost the contest...sigh. I'll try not to "crack" up over the loss. But don't eggspect me to get over it too easy or anything.

Drama Queen said...

Climbing trees and walls is an important skill to acquire for girls.
Love the eggs and the cookies...and the happy peeps!!!

Tina said...

Everyone needs to know how to climb! And the cookies are beautiful. Looks like a wonderful day! Thanks for sharing.

Julie Schuler said...

That sunshine looks good! And as long as the cookies taste good, who cares how they look!

Annesphamily said...

My oldest daughter Noelle is a bad influence! She made cookies shaped like butterflies,chicks and bunnies and uses 2 sticks of real butter, two 8 oz. packages of cream cheese (no low fat for that girl!) and powdered sugar with almond or vanilla extract for icing! Then she tints it different pastel colors!

Those lambs are so darn cute! Isn't Easter wonderful! I love it a lot! Thanks for the great giveaway gift! I am shocked I won! I love bunnies and chicks and the whole Easter theme! Thank you so much! I love it over here!

Jules said...

My name is PJ. said...

Those cookies look great - especially the plate you posed with. And the eggs take me back to my and my off spring's childhood.

Kathy C is going to need a pick me up during her recuperation which was described to me by The Source's ortho as HELL. Does she have an address so we could send her cards, or are our prayers enough?

Latmberg2 said...
