It's Good To Be Back.

A big Hiya, Howdy and Hello !

It's so nice to be back, ive missed all you girls so much :)
I want to say THANKYOU from the bottom of my heart for all your love, caring and support these past few weeks, and in particular this past week as i have struggled to come to terms with the passing of my sweet friend Sharyn.
I know that Sharyn would want me to continue smiling and enjoying each day with my family so that is what i shall do !
I have also found that head down and back to work is great therapy!
So i have some sweet new items on their way to the website over the next few days that i hope you'll just love.
On saturday night my girlie friends and i got together for a 'giggle night', we all needed it so much and we had a ball. It was SOOOO GOOD to just relax, laugh and remember.....
Heres a snap of me and my bestie Kylie :)




Onto EASTER now.

every year i tell myself not too much chocolate for Sam....ahhh what the heck but, its easter and well we have plenty of toothpaste in the house! LOL.

This year the easter bunny left footprints in the form of powder through Sams bedroom. Great idea huh? Yes well maybe if my Sam was not so cluey..."Mummy these footprints smell like your powder in the bathroom" (he runs to bathroom, gets the powder).... "Now come and smell them" UH OH....ok so i am made to get on the floor and smell them "Oh yeah they do a bit dont they..." ok think fast woman... "You know what Sam? I think the easter bunny was tired from all that hopping and he had a shower in our bathroom and used my powder!" The response? head tilted, finger tapping on side of face as he considers this....."Yes well next time you better lock your powder away mummy"....ahhh nice save.

The very questionable footprints...LOL


Sams rather large stash.....


Having an Easter Egg hunt at Aunty Traceys house :)


I hope you all had a safe and happy and MMMM CHOCOLATEY easter *hee hee*
I know i did!
I think my butt grew overnight! Either that or someone shrank my pants (oh yeah i think i'll roll with that one...)

Back in a day or 2 with some sweeties and eye candy for you!

Lots PINK KISSES being blown your way!

Much Love,
Shann xxoo

Hi Shann, You are right Sharyn would have wanted you to get on with life and enjoy it.
A fun night with your girlfriends would have been the best 'therapy ' you could get.
That Sam is one clever little man.
Mmm.. lots of goodies for him from the Easter Bunny.
Happy Easter
Alison

Great to see that you are back in blog land, have missed you :) Looks like a fun Easter, what a cleaver idea using powder.

You are right Sharyn would want you to remember the good times. When my cousin died I made a memories album, I put photos in and wrote about the fun times we had, memories and special times that I did not want to forget and put any letters, cards, bookmarks etc that he had given me over the years. At times when I miss him or on his birthday etc I pull it out and look at it.

Welcome back sweetie, boy have I missed you. I even got my cuppies in the mail today. I love them. Thanks so much. I cannot even imagine what you have been through but just know you have been in my prayers and on my heart constantly. I am back from Tennessee and have so much to do after being gone for a week. Please, if there is anything I can do (I know I'm far away) but I really mean it. Can't wait to see your new things. Looks like Sam did okay for Easter!!

Hugs,
LeAnn :)

You're so right Sharyn would have wanted you to get on with your life, that doesn't mean she's not in your heart
Looks like an enjoyable Easter was had in the Thompson house!

Welcome back Shannon! That is a great photo of you and your girlfriend and I love the Easter bunny idea, kids are just too smart sometimes huh? I got a new grandbaby for Easter, he was born last night. No name yet but it was the best Easter present ever. Hugs to you.

Oh I am SO glad you are back!! I've missed you (hugs, hugs)!! I am glad you are doing better. I'm glad you had a girly night, you SO needed it. Good to see you pick up and move on, as Sharyn I'm sure would have wanted.

Good save w/bunny tracks! I don't know if I could have thought that fast! I'm impressed!!

Looks like you had a great Easter!!
