Hippity Hoppity Easter's On It's Way

******Please click on "The Daily Puppy"******

Wow, I can't believe that it's almost Easter. Sunday morning children will be waking to beautiful baskets left especially for them from the Easter Bunny. They will be filled with chocolate bunnies, colorful Peeps, speckled Robin eggs (my favorite) and jelly bean eggs. How exciting that will be for them!! My pups will all get a small veggie burger made especially for them and I will tell them that the Easter Bunny left it for them.......

Tomorrow is the "Friday Shoot-Out". This week's subject is My Town - The Four" chosen by GingerV @flowersandmore in Brasil. Anything that revolves around the main intersections of your town.....storefront's, alley's, street signs, traffic lights, people, traffic. It's all about interpretation as there are No Rules in this fun project. Whining has already been taking place all week about having no traffic lights and such (okay, before everyone goes crazy one me....I'm totally kidding). Improvise.......everyone has a town of some sort. Let's see your's through your eyes. Are we posting on Friday's or Thursday nights this week Patty? Just so we're all on the same page.

Lovely Loida @welcometo2Ls3B's has chosen next week's subject: "MY HOMETOWNS NATIVE FOODS AND RESTURANTS". Let's see what and where you love to eat. Everybody's gotta eat right? Let's all get to shootin and let the whining begin :).........


Store front window in downtown Newnan....ready for Easter.......


A cute bunny sign in a front yard off of Macedonia Road.......


Stirrup Some Fun Farms....I think they're having an egg hunt.......


Community Wide Easter Egg Hunt - Babies thru 6th grade....I love to see those little ones.......


Newnan Florist's Easter window display......


Spring Fling, Egg Hunt AND a Bike Rodeo?? What are they going to do? Rope a calf while riding a bicycle? I sooo want to see that........


Close of of vines growing around a tree that Auntie Mom pointed out to me on Gordon Road in Newnan


A little farther out of the majestic tree......


Isn't this just beautiful? I looked closely and there are actually two other trees growing all around and into this mighty Water Oak. I'm going to go back for another shot when more of the leaves have opened. I hope these other trees and vines don't choke out their stunning host......


These next two shots are for Airman Mom. This one is a DOT job site flying Old Glory as they work away. Makes me so proud, how about you Airman Mom?.........


This is our Justice Center in Newnan. Everyday they display our Stars and Stripes and our State of Georgia flag......

  1. AARRGGHH!! The Easter Bunny is coming this Sunday? Crud! The Easter Bunny had better get busy and gather up the loot or I'm going to have some unhappy kids around here.

    By the time I get to the store, there will be nothing left and my poor kids will have to make do with cigarettes, Diet Pepsi, and cheese sticks in their baskets. Oh well, nobody ever said they were going to get through this life without a little therapy. :)

  19. I want to know who came up with the four corners idea - ho hum pretty boring. you know four corners could be North - south - east - west or our towns, or 4 ramdom corners - (the most interesting) I am looking forward to seeing every one participating tomorrow - I am putting GIGI (http://www.blogger.com/profile/12105810181528386036) on my list.

  24. Thanks for stopping by my blog! Wow, your post was fantastic for easter...I so wish my kids were small again, baskets, eggs, hiding the eggs, fun stuff. I usually fix them a small basket, but it is not the same as the baskets the Easter Bunny left for them when they were little! Have a great weekend.

  26. I posted mine on Friday 2AM, guess we're hours ahead of you there in the West. Probably 10-12 hours! I'm already excited for next week's shootout!

    Sad that we're not much into celebrating Easter here in the country. But I remember back then that our whole clan searched for hidden chocolate eggs LOL.

    That is a truly majestic Water Oak! Seems like a wild man lives in there LOL.

  27. Aren't those trees amazing?

    Happy Easter. xx

  28. Hometown foods, huh? That will be a challenge. Love is a battlefield, by...hmmm...by somebody. I wonder when someone will choose "Love" as a shootout theme? Could get us all kicked off blogspot. Maybe we could all meet in Brazil or the Philapines do the shootout together? John Lee Hooker - Boom boom boom boom.
