Spring Pictures and A Celebration

Well the weather may be warm, but the coffee is on. It is plain old DD and it tastes really good on this rainy afternoon. I am so happy to see you, as always, but the rain makes just a nice reason to visit. A lot has been going on Through My Back Door this week. One of the most important being Amanda's last chemo. That was a celebration I will share. Also Curt was home on spring break and we got to spend some time together. We ate and played cards and oh yes we beat Deb and Michael at Spades. Do you see me gloating? The sad part was I got beat really bad at 5Crowns. Oh well, such is life.
Carol and I were to meet Bill and Gloria on Wednesday and that didn't work out this time. We will next trip.
I have been doing a bit more spring/Easter decorating. I just love using bunnies and eggs. Now if my Grandpa Wright was here he'd challenge that, because he would say bunnies don't lay eggs. I am going to do a post on him one day. I loved that man so much. He was funny as could be. He died in his 90's and what hair he had was still jet black. Not fair at
Candy container bunny on top of entertainment center.
Bunny in dough bowl, with my gourd eggs from the Bama Planter. I love those eggs.
This is my bunny in my cheese crock with the hand decorated eggs from Russia. A gift from my friend Carol.
Redware eggs in an old measure.
I have so much fun doing these little vignettes. Most of us prim lovers do. I have discovered we all have this "tweaking gene". lol
Can you find the pewter bunnies in the corner cupboard?
Well that is enough bunnies today. I want to show you the last day at chemo. We had a party.Now I asked if I could post these  and she said sure. (Okay, she was drugged, so I waited until the next day and asked She said
I know I said yes. So here is the last chemo celebration.
This is her with Clay. He got off early to be with her for the last treatment.
She and Curt with her flowers.
Here she is in her cowgirl hat and pink boa, being covered in bubbles. Do you see that smile?
I did not show you these pictures for any other reason but to let you see the results of your prayers. Because we know you have prayed diligently for her we wanted to let you in our celebration. Again thank you from the bottom of our hearts, and thank you for coming Through My Back Door where life is good.
PS: Deb has been to every chemo except one with her, so she deserved flowers too.
She is one happy mama.
PSS: to quote Andrew,"At least I know I am safe in my own mind". So that is where I leave you today.
Please come again soon.
PSSS: If you think you are seeing things like bunnies hopping around, you really are. Thank you Prim Doodles.

  6. Betty, I am typing through tears. Thanks to Amanda for sharing the photos with us. You can see the joy and the love in everyone's eyes and the smiles on their faces. I am so thankful this is now behind Amanda. She is so blessed to have such a loving and caring familyto be there for her and to celebrate her success. A great big hug to Deb also.

  15. Soooo happy for Amanda and all of you! An event worth a celebration. Praise!
    Love your bunnies, especially the candy container.

  16. Continuing to pray for Amanda and all of your family.


  17. I don't think a smile was ever worn so beautifully as on Amanda's lovely face. Woo Hoo!!! Now THAT is definitely celebration worthy!! What a strong family you've raised dear Betty....I will continue to pray for Amanda's continued healing and strength. Love your bunnies popping up all over. I have gotten some of mine out, but by no means all. Come to think of it, there might still be a few stray black cats from Halloween hanging around. Might just make them some bunny ears and call it good. ;o) Hope your weekend is off to a great start my friend....Smiles & Saturday Hugs ~ Robin

  22. Betty, I just loved seeing all your little spring vignettes! But, what I REALLY loved was seeing Amanda's beautiful smile celebrating her last chemo treatment!! She is a brave girl and my prayers will continue for her to get stronger and put this whole thing behind her. It is time for her to get back to her normal life of caring for and loving her family. She looks SO GOOD!!! happy hugs, Jan
