A Wonderful Weekend

Early this morning we knew it was going to be a wonderful weekend. Want to know how we knew? This is what the driveway looked like. After delivering that big box of toys and treats yesterday, the big truck man came back this morning and left all these boxes.
Besides that, Mom has been playing in the kitchen. Last night she made this for her and Dad. It's chicken and broccoli and noodles and cheese. Guess what we had for dinner. We had our kibble and on top Mom put chicken and broccoli and cheese. Yep, we had a special dinner just like the peeps. We all loved it except for Mackey and Sebastian who didn't eat their broccoli. Don't worry, it didn't go to waste. Norma Jean and Lola cleaned it up. Not much goes to waste around here.
 That's not all. Mom also made cookies. No, they weren't dog cookies, these were for peeps, but in the oatmeal cookies she used cranberries instead of raisins so that we could taste them. She also made chocolate chip cookies but we couldn't try those.
 Today Mom went for a walk around the yard with us. She was looking for signs of Spring and we found some.
  The cherry tree is beautiful.

 The crabapple trees are getting ready to flower.
 The wild violets have buds waiting to open.
  The bleeding heart  and climbing rose don't have any flowers yet but they're nice and green.
 And inside our dining room, the Christmas cactus is showing that it's more of a General Holiday Cactus.


 And of course our friends Stanley, Calder and Norris are singing along with the outside birds to keep the house cheerful.


 We're looking forward to our annual Easter biscuit hunt tomorrow. Guess I'll go take a nap and get rested up for the competition but before I go, today is Epilepsy Awareness Day. Check out Five Sibes Blog for lots of info about this awful condition. Our little Mackey has had two seizures now and we're trying to learn all we can to keep her safe.


 Your friend, Fudge

Yum! What a great dinner. Of course, we probably wouldn't eat the broccoli either....although smothered in cheese...we just might! Love the look of those Chewy boxes.

It has not been a very good few days here for our seizure girl. Mom is at her wit's end. But this too shall pass.

Looks like a fabulous weekend at your house. We have the whole family coming for dinner tomorrow - we are hoping for some turkey and maybe a taste of some dessert.

Happy Easter to you and your family.
