How Was Your Easter? Mine Was Great. Thanks.

The food was pretty awesome.
There weren't any leftover potatoes.
The centerpiece was pretty.The BAH was, as always, a masterpiece. The remains are now in the freezer, awaiting Pentecost.

The company was jovial, there was the annual singing of "I Don't Know How to Love Him". People played Guitar Hero.But there was some unpleasantness. It had to do with The Baby. His parents, Seattle Coffee Girl and The Prince are really lovely people, don't get me wrong. But no one really likes their baby.

Uncle Jerry doesn't like him.

I don't like him at all.Ree Ree doesn't like him and as you can see, The Neighbor isn't the least bit impressed with him.
Not to mention, he has some very unpleasant table manners. When he's not chewing on the good linens, he's drooling.You know what the real problem is? The kid is just so dour and lacking in personality.A shame really.

Happy Easter, from our house to yours.

Our Easter was good here.

I don't know what it is with those little people and their lack of charisma. :P

Oh that looked like a great time. That baby is adorable! Probably got no attention all day.

This was my first non-Jesus-Christ-Superstar Easter. For reasons I'd rather not go into at this time.

Table setting and food was lovely, glad you had a good day.

Is that by chance the boyfriend?

Glad to hear it, Grish. And right? What is up with that?

Sage, we fight over who gets to ignore him first.

Damn apostles.

7 months this week, Buck. Can you stand it?

Now everyone applaud for Grish and his little dance...

No, Twisi, that's the lad to whom she's been betrothed since birth. Not that either one of them pay any attention to that. His folks are some of our best friends. We just thought it would make holidays easier.

We had a great Easter her at the homestead as well.
Is that blush wine I see?..It's okay to have red with the BAH you know.
There's only one thing to do with the baby.
Sell him to the gypsies.

It is a pink wine, Sling. A nice dry Columbia Valley pink. It was tasty-o-rama. I bet even you woulda liked it.

(I don't do sweet pinks...for the record).

Glad y'all had a good one.

OK, everybody stop applauding Grish. In fact, let's ignore him like we ignore The Baby.

I kinda skipped easter this year, instead I was frisked in Madrid.

Those babies. Nothing but trouble.

WHAT a cutie!

We had a super warm tropical Easter and almost too much happy for one gang o' people. And, possibly, a little too much champagne, too, but what're you going to do when it's offered? Yah. My point exactly.

Of all the days to take vacation from work and not read your blog...Ha!

That poor, neglected, sad little Babe. It makes me sad to think how forlorn he was at your Easter Feast. Nobody liked him.

I am still dreaming about that BAH. And those potatoes. And those green beans. Yummmmmmm...xxoo

Oh, Anne, you and your glamorous life.

Booda, well, sure.

SCG: It's pitiful. Better luck with the next kid.

Oh what an adorable baby. Yes, I must disagree with you, dear Lorraine. Your taste in babies is entirely lacking. This one looks fantabulous.

On a not-pulling-your-leg note, your table was lovely. We knocked back gobs of ham, scallopped potatoes and lemon/blackberry cake at my mom's house. I'm still full.

Three cheers for your rendition of the JCSS song. You gotta check out the Indigo Girls version of the show if you haven't heard it.

We had a traditional Italian family lunch with a very untraditional gathering - I must post something about it. A wonderful time.

Damn you didn't save any potatoes for me?????

And as to cutie pie I can see why you all but ignored him. Not an ounce of charm in him..... yeah right.

Hat, and weren't you just punished for travelling on Easter, what?

KA, don't be fooled by the bright eyes. That kid is just pathetic. Although he does have some very nice thunder thighs. We were talking about roasting and eating him later in the week.

I'm still full, too. I'm sure it doesn't have anything to do with having triple coconut cream pie for breakfast 2 days straight.

Willym, I tried but heavens, I didn't even get a third helping of potatoes myself. Ravening beasts. Another thing about that baby? He coos. Can you believe it?

And a good time was had by all! Great pics. And kudos on making the baby look cute and engaging in spite of himself.

Trust, Cowbell, it wasn't easy. I mean, seriously, what are you supposed to do with that lack of material?
