Later that night as I was in a deep sleep and thought I was dreaming I was awakened with Luke tapping on my chest, it was 3 am and he was ready to get up, I sent him off to bed but as expected he was up at 5. I will say he was patient and waited for us all to get up. By 7 am we were all geared up and out side for a Easter Egg Hunt. This was the second year in the snow and our second year here on the farm. Later Easter morning we went to my brothers for lunch, ham dinner my favorite! I made a daffodil cake for a first, it was very good. The recipe comes from recipe.com

Friday night Melissa, Jeff, Cam, and Abby visited. We had lasagna made with a few farm ingredients, batam eggs, zucchini, and deer meat (ok not quite a farm animal) It was nice to get together as always!
Annabelle is hoping there is some milk inside of that finger.
