Spring Holiday

Friday, April 06, 2012

We are having a wonderful spring holiday season. Trying to minimize our stuff, we are giving granddaughters glass baskets full of SuzinL Choclateir candy. One basket is from Dh's mother--a clear basket from a lady born in England the end of 1880's. She left school as a child, after 3 years to work in a sweatshop in London to support her family, but she read 2 or more hours every day of her life to be educated.Another basket is signed Fenton from my mother with violets on. She was an angel. Pink Basket 3 is from Aunt Mid who was a southern lady who had a pink cadallic, pink clothes, and pink satin in her house. The mini basket is from my great aunt Emma who was a minister's wife and the grande dame of the Easter season at church. Such wonderful memories and I am enjoying telling the girls about these strong, capable, lovely women ancestors.

Food is another wonderful part of the holidays. Here are low carb Easter recipes from

And low carb Passover recipes from

Wishing you happiness with friends and family this weekend.

    Your granddaughters will treasure such special gifts. It is so important to pass on the stories of our families and your granddaughters will have something tangible to remember them. Happy Easter!
