Holiday Baking (and a memory)

My homemade bunny cake (left),colored eggs (ctr) and basket from Tom (right)
Back when I (Rob) was a teenager, my mom taught me how to make a bunny cake for Easter and I haven't made one in years, so I think she influenced me to make one this year. Here's a picture of it. I also colored hard boiled eggs (Tom didn't partake) by adding 5 drops of food coloring to a glass with 1/4 cup white vinegar and water.  Tom DID surprise me with a specially ordered easter basket, complete with my name embroidered on the napkin within. Most importantly, it had chocolate and jelly beans! :) 
  Happy Easter, Happy Passover, Happy Sunday. Enjoy your day whatever you're celebrating whether a holiday or the weekend. 

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
