Have you heard about the Ultimate Homemaking Bundle? The sale starts Wednesday!!!

Last year there were a ton of great books included in the bundle and you get them all (plus GREAT bonuses) for $29.97. It’s highly worth looking at the collection of e-books when it’s available on Wednesday (the sale only goes through Monday). If out of the 78 e-books there were even just 10 books you’ve been wanting, it would be a great deal. (Don’t forget, if you already own an e-book or some don’t interest you, you can forward them on to a friend who would enjoy it and delete from your computer.)

We had a good Easter weekend! My husband had the day off of work Friday (although he had to go in for a few hours) and we worked around the house some. Saturday we met his parents, brother, and nephew an hour and a half away and spent the afternoon at the botanical gardens. The tulips were in bloom and it was beautiful. The children’s garden was well done with a tree fort to climb in and giant musical instruments to play.

Not only was Sunday Easter it was also the day we reintroduced wheat into our diets. We’ll see if we notice any difference in my son’s face over the next few weeks with wheat added back in. This is a shot of his cheeks from yesterday. He still has some redness and spots but it’s way better than it was earlier this year. He’s had no major flair ups in the 6 weeks we’ve been doing this and only a couple of minor once (none in the past 2-3 weeks). We’ve also noticed a huge difference in his scratching. Before he was continually clawing at his face (often drawing blood) and now it’s just every once in a while. We’ll see what happens.

We had quite the traditional Easter lunch of. . . pizza! My husband is a pizza fan so we decided to go for it. Homemade pizza made for a pretty easy (and tasty) lunch and we finished the day off with apple crisp and ice cream (an early birthday dessert for my husband).

    Glad you had a good weekend. Your kids are adorable and I’m glad your little boy has seen such improvement with his eczema. Have a wonderful week.

      Thanks, Janet! It was a lot of fun and we are looking forward to another weekend trip to see my sister and go to Silver Dollar City this weekend. Kenna is pretty excited. I’m so glad for him too. Now the waiting to see what happens begins.

    Yummy menu plan. I made carrot cake for Easter and I think dumping the leftovers into a baked oatmeal would be delicious. I love to read also and have not read Mansfield park yet and quitter sounds like a good one.

    Stopping by from Org Junkie’s menu plan monday. I hope you will link up this and 2 other posts with my #SmallVictoriesSunday #linky open now and all week. It’s a chance to share good books, food and helpful/inspiring posts.

    I also participate in a linky about our monthly goals and would love to have you link up your goals there too!

      Thanks, Tanya! One of my favorite things about carrot cake is that it’s normally topped with cream cheese icing – yum! I’m so close to being done with Mansfield Park. Hopefully today. I enjoyed Pride and Prejudice quite a bit more but it will be nice to read all of Jane Austen’s books. I think Quitter is going to be really good. I love the first two chapters.

      Thanks for sharing about your parties. I’ll have to stop by and check them out when I get home later this afternoon. (Now I just need to remember. . .)
