Easter, Soldiers, & Fun-Frilled

So here is my Easter centerpiece that also doubled as goodies for the soldiers to take home with them. I cooked for a few soldiers that are going to be deploying in about a month...Nick would have been deploying as well if he had not changed units - thank God for that! I made them Easter goodies just as I did last year when they all came home...never forget to thank a soldier for what they do...Soldiers give you your freedom everyday, God gives you forgiveness for life.
These also double for a monthly challenge (such a multi-tasker aren't I?) on a thread for SCS for Procrastinators...we had to use hoarded items...that would be the bottles I have had since Christmas and the SU! paper since I don't know when!!!
Now....don't forget to check out Fun-Frilled this week as I am back in action on the design team after maternity leave and all (hee, hee) and please don't forget to take part in the AMAZING almost $300 worth of blog candy to win!!!

  16. Great projects and such a worthy cause. I hope our heroes are inundated with gifts such as yours. They deserve soooo much. We keep them in our prayers constantly.

    Would love for you to visit a relatively new devotional blog called Women to Women: Sharing Jesus. It's just a place where women "gather" to exalt the name of Christ. It's new, but growing rapidly and we'd love to have you be a part. I appreciate the way you proclaim your faith in Him here.

    You have a lovely blog. I'll be back!
