Easter and Spring

Easter is this Sunday, April 1st. Since 1900, Easter has fallen on April Fool’s Day only four times – 1923, 1934, 1945, and 1956. It won’t happen again until 2029. This is no trick.

What are you doing for Easter, if you celebrate Easter? Are you doing anything special, if you don’t celebrate Easter? Do you have any Easter or spring traditions? Are there any animals that remind you of Easter or spring? What are your favorite candies that you can buy around Easter?

    Happy Good Friday

    This is shaping up to be a crazy year. Easter Weekend, Full Moon and April Fools.
    Mom’s I am glad you like the bouncy castle and flowers.
    I bought 7 bags and many egg cartons. My 7 new prizes were: 2 purple beds, 2 plaid beds, a purple flower rug, plaid curtains and purple flower garden. All I wanted were the cottages like everyone else of course. Lot’s of complaints in the comments on the wkn about the lack of cottage prizes. I suggested they just have a category in the e-store that sells all the cottages. They did it with the Witch Cottage and still sold lot’s of other stuff.

    Patsie love this post and the pretty baby animals. We usually have an easter egg hunt and big family dinner. My favorite candy is the hard candy eggs with the marshmallow cream filling, super sugar sweet, so I don’t eat too many.

    Dee sounds like you are enjoying all that spring brings. The trees sound lovely. The dogwood is our provincial flower. Thanks for the code reminder, I really like the stone furniture.

    Gaga, I love how you have regular family dinners. I am so looking forward to that happening as my kids move into their adult lives. I am sending sunny warm thoughts that spring is going to sprung for you.

    Waving at you Shelley as you skate past. The Easter Bunny already brought me the best present, my daughter came home for 2 days.

    Wishing everyone Peace in their thoughts, Love to fill their hearts and Joy in their being.

    just ginned up a pasta salad……your basic peas and onions and cheese thingy
    i could live on it

    was looking at my empty pots out back and wondered if you all knew about planting the ends of your green onions…….you know the “hairy” bit. they grow! also works for ends of celery bunches……….but i think i am in the uber minority with cooking.
    def gonna do basil and rosemary again and gonna break down and buy a cilantro plant as i have had ZIP luck with seeds………..not sure why.
    hugs to all

    i would NEVER plant onions – ewww

    i have rosemary, lemon balm, and mint plants

    i tried cilantro because i love using it in salsa & had ZIP luck too – i need to try basil & cilantro this year & i’m going to do a couple of tomato plants in a raised bed – one cherry or grape & one regular

    Good Morning !
    Catmom… as always your thoughts are uplifting and brighten my day !
    As far as our weather……………cold wave continues but I know there is a light at the end of the tunnel !!
    moms… I love the new ostrich.. Has to be in my opinion one of the cutest pets released thus far !! Anxious to see what the plushie looks like in person !!
    dee.. pasta salad is one of my favorites ! Use pea pods and black olives in my recipe..Good Season salad dressing…
    Quick trip to grocery store yesterday to order the meat for Easter dinner… Place was a zoo ! Will go back today to do the shopping and hopefully my groceries will end up in my car and not someone else’s !!
    Lots of new activities tomorrow in WW ! Love the prize for the challenge… although the pizza game is not one of my favorites…
    Looking forward to watching Loyola tonight !! So hoping they make it to the finals… we’ll see..
    dee.. saw on National news last night that both of the Blackhawks goalies were injured… and they recruited a daytime CPA to play for them.. I guess he did an awsome job !! Nice story..
    Hope you all have a great day…

    Hi everyone! Just got caught up after several days away. I’ve been really busy this week. My daughter is spending a couple weeks with her dad. He’s taking her to San Francisco for spring break, so I’m taking advantage of the opportunity to get a ton of work done on my house… a massive spring cleaning. Once I’ve got it cleaned out and cleaned up, I’m going to give it a makeover. Room by room. Every room is going to get a new coat of paint, and a few of the rooms are going to get new flooring. This project will probably take me all year, but I’m excited about tackling it!

    Gagagee – Thank you so much for that incredibly generous gift! I loved it! I totally agree with you about the new ostrich. That is one of the cutest pets I’ve ever seen. I fell in love the moment I saw it on Webkinz Newz! If it is as cute in person as it is in the photo, I’m going to buy like ten of them. I’m weird like that. Most pets I have no desire to own. I buy and sell so many of them, and I don’t get attached to any of them. Except every now and then, a pet will just grab me and I have a desire to buy a bunch of them and stuff them in a tote just in case… I ever need ten ostriches? LOL. I don’t know why I get attached to certain pets, and it’s very rare, but when I do, I fall in love hard! This is the first time I’ve felt this excited over a new pet since the release of the Sweet Elephant.

    Everyone – I’ve been doing a pet giveaway each month since I joined last summer, but I completely missed the month of March. I could throw something up today, but instead, I’m going to give away two pets next month. One will be tomorrow, so check in tomorrow for a puzzle to solve and cute bunny giveaway! Later in the month, I will host another giveaway, which I already have planned.

    Zingy – My daughter’s birthday party was incredible! Thanks for asking! She had the sweet 16 celebration she had dreamed of. All of the friends she invited showed up. They had pizza and an ice cream cake at her skating rink. They all got to skate and enjoyed it. She had lots of nice gifts. And my husband and I took her out Sunday for a special family dinner. It made me so happy to see her so happy!

    Patsie – I love the opening post you made! Great job! I don’t celebrate Easter in any sort of religious sense, but I embrace many different cultural and religious customs and symbols, including the holiday’s pagan origins. When my daughter was little, we participated in community Easter Egg Hunts every year, and she loved it! But she outgrew those years ago, so we really don’t do anything for Easter now. It’s just another day for us, but I love all the Easter goodies in Webkinz World! I’ll spend my Easter, or at least part of the day, logging into all of my accounts for eggy goodness!

    For all of you who celebrate Easter with your family or church, have a warm and lovely holiday weekend!

    oh and gaga
    YES i saw an article about the accountant who was on standby to be a goalie
    at first i was surprised they even had such a thing as recreational player standbys………..but good grief! dude knew it was his chance in a lifetime and totally came thru……….i am sure there will be a movie about it at some point. i can only imagine how thrilled he was

    my dh was a little jealous when he found out………..now i am sure he wants to hang at preds games……..:)

    Hello! Thank you all so much for sharing your experiences with babies and for the great advice. TLL – I have heard that babies have different cries for different needs…ME has only one cry right now. And she sounds like a lawn mower that is running out of gas. I know I shouldn’t laugh, but it is quite funny! The nasal aspirator…Is that the thing where you suck the boogers out of the child’s nose with your mouth? That has got to be one of the grossest things ever! But, all the moms I talked to swear by it!
    Ruby – I have 2 baby carriers! But, I haven’t used them yet. Not sure how to do the dishes while wearing ME! I always said that I would rather wear her, though, instead of buying a stroller for outings. It makes more sense to me.
    Miracle – Thanks for the book suggestion. I bought “What to Expect” years ago, but have never heard of “Baby Wise”. I might give it a shot. Not much time to read though…
    I see that I missed Gymbo’s Birthday. HAPPY BIRTHDAY GYMBO!!!
    Just finished putting in all the community codes that were about to expire. Thanks DEE for the reminder! I am pretty bad at remembering to do those!
    I am also really bad at completely Deluxe Challenges in time and I end up paying to “Skip” activities every month it seems. UGH!

    I Love, love, LOVE that Ostrich. So CUTE!!!

    PINEAPPLE CHEESE CASSEROLE?! Moms!!! Can I have the recipe? That sounds A-MAZE-ING!

    Anyways, Happy Easter to all who celebrate. Enjoy time spent with family and friends or some extra time to relax. <3

    Happy Easter.

    Put the codes in on some of the accounts over the last couple of days, thanks for the reminders. Also did a few of the deluxe challenges but not all. Bought an Ostrich. This months deluxe challenge prize is very cute. Making sure to start that one right away. Renewal month on family deluxe accounts don’t want to risk if there are issues.

    Omg. Hahaha. I can’t believe what I just did! And I can’t believe that I am going to share this stupidity! So..I was working on the March Deluxe Challenge. It’s no surprise that I missed spinning the Wheel of Wishes 5 times or ran out of time to play Piggy’s Big Adventure. So I paid 10,000 estore points each to skip those activities. (It’s not the first time, and won’t be the last.) I did, however, have Sugarberries in my dock and was feeding them to my pet.
    …Until…he became too full. Then. I needed to wait. Until he was no longer full. (Probably should have just fed them to another pet.) I waited so long that I waited till THE NEXT DAY!!! I completely forgot to finish the challenge. AND WASTED 20 BUCKS!!!
    Pregnancy Brain still remains.

    Good Morning All and Happy Easter !
    AmberRose.. nice to hear from you ! Sorry you wasted 20 e store buck !!
    For future reference.. if a challenge requires you to feed your pet… have them swim.. jump on the trampoline or jog on the treadmill… they get really hungry !
    RubyCube.. happy you enjoy your gifts.. never be able to repay you for what you sent.. visit the room everyday just to look at the items !!!!
    Was at the e store bright and early this morning.. ordered the ostrich !! SO CUTE
    can’t wait for it to arrive to meet it in person ! Received “little one” box with purchase… love the window !!! may try to get a couple extra boxes…
    dee… sounds like spring has arrived in your area !! Still waiting but I know it will be here soon !!
    Loyola lost last night..felt so badly for the boys and Sister Jean.. but I guess someone had to go home a loser…..They have nothing to be ashamed about.. record winning season… were not expected to get as far as they did !
    moms.. your dinner sounds great but seems like a lot of work !! Sure it will be delicious ! Do you make your mac and cheese from scratch ?? One of my favorites… My nephew on spring break this week and I heard through the grapevine he is going to make me a batch !! One of his specialties !! So sweet of him..
    tmt .. I agree with you… the challenge prize is really cute !! Played a couple of games of checkers this morning… Fiona Feathers is one tough cookie !!
    Finally beat her at ONE game !!! Will try someone else later…
    Serving beef tenderloin and mashed potatoes.. green bean casserole and a garden salad at our family gathering today…Niece and Nephew were not expected to join us …BUT their plans changed… Will be able to come for dinner !! Makes my day !
    To each and everyone… celebrate the day with family and friends !

    amy thanks for sharing the code!

    yes, i make the mac & cheese from scratch in the crock pot – so yummy that i have to double it every time! my youngest warthog is a chef in the making, so today, i taught him to make it with me just helping – it’s nice to have his help! he also baked the cake with my help yesterday, so i made the frosting & did the coconut – i use 7 minute frosting on coconut cake

    amberrose – the pineapple cheese is so fantastic i have to double it every time, too :) if i’m going to cook, it should be something we really enjoy because i do not mind the cooking, but i abhor the clean up

    i have those two recipes already typed up, so i’ll grab them to share now
