Well, my posts are always going to be a little late. I blog about stuff after it happens... too busy having fun to stop in the middle to share!
The Saturday before Easter I was running around trying to clear off the infamous dining room table... again. It seems to be a catch-all for everything but the kitchen sink! We only use it as a dining table for family dinners at holidays or special occasions, so it just becomes the dumping spot and worktable for paying bills and organizing taxes (got them to the accountant on Friday! Whew!)... Nope.. no before picture here... wait a few months, errr... weeks, errr... days... and then it will be back to normal again! LOL!
Doing this while babysitting my three-year-old grandson was a bit challenging, but I got the job done and we did get to enjoy dinner at the table! In the midst of cleaning I got a phone call from my youngest daughter saying that the Easter Bunny was available for pictures at the local flea market so bring the grandson over.
There is only one store remaining at one end of the old Cookeville Mall... JCPenny. All the others have moved cross-town to the new shopping area. The owners want to knock everything down and build something new, but it's my understanding that Penny's won't let them break the lease/contract because they and their customers like this location. So, while that fight drags on, the owners have leased out the remaining mall area to a Flea Market. Chain link cages have been errected throughout the interior to make something like 400 booths!
She was dancing around and waving her balloons
crafting them into animals and shapes for the kids...
He just wanted to look... not touch!
Finally he saw Mr. Easter Bunny... sitting in his wicker throne with a basket of candy at his feet. The purpose of the trip was for a picture with the big guy himself. Although the basket of candy was very enticing, there was no way he was going to sit on the bunny lap for a picture!
