Yes, they're good at multi-tasking — snacks and experimenting with color.
The table worked out pretty well. As you may remember, we used plywood to extend it with another shorter table on the end and supports beneath the plywood. Even so, it didn't take Sam long to realize that something was weird. "What's wrong with this table?!" Then the tablecloths were flipped up and he took a good look. Ha! Two cookie cans and a stack of books worked nicely.
Some judicious angling of the table helped with room to get around. I apologize for the strange lighting. It was snowing Easter morning; it was snowing yesterday morning; it's snowing this morning.
I wish that I had used a small bouquet like this on the table...so pretty. It also had a beautiful green flower that is not shown. My camera skills are slipping. Anyway, this was a gift from my daughter to my daughter-in-law so I couldn't very well claim it. ☺
Have you ever used edible grass? We had not until this year. I don't think we need to again, though it looked cute enough.
I feel a bit silly showing this humble place setting. I used two different ones because I don't have quite enough Friendly Village with the blossoming spring tree. The good silver stayed right in its box. No time for polishing.

A couple of Pinterest ideas that I liked. I have a few more that I didn't like and am not showing. That's the fun of Pinterest...you just never know until you try it.

The marble bags were finally gifted and we were able to play many games of marbles in the afternoon. John found vintage marbles at the flea market on Saturday so the bags are nicely filled. The boys are old enough to appreciate the game this time around and Jake enjoyed making the pot with his rubber boot heel dug into the mud.
A different sort of candy dish seen many times in Blogdom. Don't tell me that you don't have an influence on me!
I have so enjoyed seeing Easter celebrated in many different ways around Blogdom. What a beautiful and blessed holiday! Now it's time to put it away...and it is the only thing that makes it look like spring around here. I think it's time to force some forsythia branches.
