Mommy's Boy!

After a few hours at tennis, some quality with the doggy boys in the backyard enjoying the sunshine and a lovely afternoon spent hauling kids home from school...
three different release times that were all 45 minutes apart. Thus requiring three entirely seperate trips...
I was ready to sit and enjoy a little computer time, playing with a new kit that Deena Rutter did for PcLayers that released today, my brain feels so much better already!
We start our "Spring Break" today, it really stinks because the kids only have Thursday, Friday and Monday off and then the next Friday. How dumb is that? Why couldn't they have just given us a full week so we could enjoy some time together and maybe have time to actually go somewhere a little further away than St. George.
Anyhooooo...
We will start some prep for enjoying the long weekend and Easter Sunday. I think I see some gourmet cupcakes in the forecast! (My poor rearend will just have to take one for the team and hit the gym next week!) I think we need to get a ham too! The yard is just hammered from the dogs running on it while it is so wet and muddy from all the snow melt, so it is really icky in the yard, that will require some time as well, now if the sun would just cooperate and stay for longer than one day at a time!
I am curious, what do you do for this holiday? Please share, we are not into the egg hunting age as much, so need to find ideas for celebrating in a more mature fashion!

good luck with the easter thing - its got to be hard when the kids get older! Love your layout! Those cute dogs are just taking over arent they! And i think next time we scrap - you need to bring some of those yummy cupcakes you keep talking about.

No ideas for more-mature celebrations-- we went to an egg hunt today and will dye eggs tomorrow-- but I hope it's happy anyway.
