Set Another Place at the Easter Brunch Table

I thought I was really organized for a 10 o'clock Easter Brunch this year. Easter baskets all ready - a basket of Bath & Body products for Jordyn with a gift card to Aeropostle, a 6-can cooler for Jacob filled with fishing stuff and a gift card to Olympia Sports, and a High School Musical suitcase filled with goodies from Staples for Tori (she loves that kind of stuff!) and a Walmart Gift Card. The pink bag at the top was for DH filled with handmade soap, sea salt scrub, etc. and a gift card for a pedicure. The clues for the Egg hunt were printed out, put in the plastic eggs and hidden by 8 o'clock this morning. I made a breakfast casserole last night, ready to go in the oven with the ham, along with oven baked french toast. All I had to do was set the table cook the home fries, put out the fruit salad, muffins, juice, coffee, etc.


Then the phone rings.....It's DD - is it okay if Jordyn brings her boyfriend. Sure! Scramble around - add his name to her egg hunt, fix up a small Easter basket, add another plate and another chair - all set. Phone rings again.....Since Jordyn is bringing her boyfriend, Jacob wants to know if it's okay to bring his girlfriend - okay - add her name to his egg hunt - put together an Easter basket for her, add a leaf to the table, another chair, another plate. Phone rings again...

I answered - "Don't tell me Tori is bringing a boyfriend" (she's 9) - No, just asking if I needed anything. Of course I was really thrilled that they all came - and we had a great time. In the photo they are playing Wii. Below Diana and Tori go through her goodies.




And Whoo Hoo - look at my Easter Basket (well, mine and DH's). He's already taken some gardening stuff out - an upsidedown tomato planter, seeds, etc. Guess what's left for me?
And since they have all left - I can spend the rest of the day knitting!
I hope that your Easter was as wonderful as mine - spent with family and friends.
