You lovely soul, you!!!! It sounds so yummy! Anything with cocoa is great; I have been eating my vanilla yogurt with cocoa power and RASPBERRIES!

Oh dearest....have a wonderful day at school with all those grandparents around! Those days are sweet, but exhausting. I am on spring break and wow, did I need the time!

Have a lovely weekend and thank you for stopping by! Anita

Kitty M said...

They looks delish Koralee - I've just been making some flower and bunny shaped fondant icing shapes for my own Easter cupcakes ... yet to be baked!

Happy blessed Easter!

I am not much of a copy cat - but this I will copy, dear! All 400! (:

Thank you for noticing Grandma! She lives in Sidney (I want to retire there!). The pictures were taken at the Butchard Gardens. Peter went to UVIC 83-89. He studied music!

What a small and lovely world we live in!

Happy Easter, beautiful Koralee.

Much fondness, Mon
