We spent Easter weekend having some wonderful fun time with the Woods, our "adopted family". Connie and I have been friends since we became room mates and sorority sisters in 1970.
Almost thirty-five years ago, she began sharing her family with me, beginning with my two Godsons, Corey and Casey.
Corey and his wife, Chaudra, now have two daughters, Cadence, 4, and Cheira, 2.
There was lots of excitement during the weekend. The girls enjoyed dying eggs!
Cadi is a patient big sister.
Cheira thought the egg dying was very cool!
Cadi met the Easter Bunny.
Palma and Brad helped with the egg hunt.
We did lots of cooking over the weekend. Friday night Mac and Cheese, Saturday night short ribs and polenta, and Sunday, potatoes, corn-leek pudding and asparagus to go with Connie's yummy ham.
Here are Connie, Grandpa Frosty, Uncle Bill, Corey, Chaudra, Cheira, and Palma enjoying food and good company.
Brad zested and juiced lemons for our lemon curd until his arm almost fell off. Chaudra helped me make our lemon tiramisu which was dressed up with green coconut, jelly bellies and PEEPS!
You couldn't hear a PEEP during dessert!
It was a wonderful weekend with the Woods family. More photos of Cadi's and Cheira's birthdays soon!
