Happy Easter

Chocolate causes certain endocrine glands to secrete hormones that affect your feelings and behavior by making you happy. Therefore, it counteracts depression, in turn reducing the stress of depression. Your stress-free life helps you maintain a youthful disposition, both physically and mentally. So, eat lots of chocolate!~Elaine Sherman, Book of Divine Indulgences
We don't eat alot of chocolate, we must just suck those endocrines out of the air because we all like to live in a happy world down here in the valley. Yesterday, while preparing some Easter dishes that can be made in advance, I whipped up a double batch of cookies for #1 daughter. I had some help from monster man. #1 daughter's favorite memory of Easter is these cookies, which I only made once before but she loved. #2 daughter's favorite memory is the bunny tracks left on the carpet and floor courtesy of a large car sponge and baby powder. The kids are are older now and forego the egg searching/chocolate for some small useful gifts.
So alot of the cooking is done and church is over so today is going to be a nice easy restful day....I might even finally finish spinning up the pansy yarn. Hope you all have a stress-free holiday.
