EASTER BUCKET

As promised The Bucket! I made this for Coco probably 4 years ago. It was the best $5.00 I ever spent.
The bucket is from the paint department in Walmart and I just added stickers and ribbon. It is a small one not the 5 gallon, but that could be fun too. She has used it every year and it is always the only 1 of it's kind! Not that it matters but she is unique! This year we are "coloring" eggs a different way too. I will show you once we do them on Saturday. Do you have a tradition of doing the eggs on Saturday before Easter? We have always done it that way. She knows the reason we celebrate Easter and we continue to teach that but we have fun with the eggs and spirit of egg hunts, too.

She also gets a special surprise each year on Easter morning. Our yard is usually full of hidden eggs for her. Our neighbor started doing this for her about 2 years ago and it is so fun to see her run out in her pj's and try to find all the eggs and we have never told her who does it. Someday we'll tell her.

Another thing I did this year for our egg hunt at my Mom's is fill this little pinata chick with lots of goodies for the kids! I think they will have a blast with it. I just hope it doesn't rain us out. If so Mom has a big front porch or the garage if we have to!

THE JOB!!!!!!!!!

I am going back to my previous employer. There was just to many things that were positive about going back vs. staying where I am. The current employer was very understanding when I gave my notice today. I gave 2 weeks notice and I will be leaving in good standing so I will be eligible for rehire. That made me happy because I didn't want to burn a bridge I might need someday! The old co-workers are happy that I am coming back too. They are planning a party, they say! It will be like going home! I get all the same benefits and will still get to keep my 5 year anniversary so that I get 3 weeks vaca this year! Whoo Hooo I like more time off with pay!

I am excited!

Wishing you all a blessed Friday!
