Who doesn't like Easter chocolates?  
And the residents at Mom's retirement home are no exception.

Inspired by a video tutorial from
Michelle Last, 
(which can be found here:

I decided to make these little pouches filled with chocolate eggs 
for Mom's friends where she lives. 

Michelle has created some amazing projects and her
video tutorials are well produced and easy to follow.
Thanks Michelle, for the inspiration for this project.

Mom has become acquainted with many of the residents and some 
have shared sad stories of how they miss their
families who they rarely ever see.

Who does that???  Who can put their loved ones away 
some where and just forget about them?  Do these people
not realize that we will all be in our golden years eventually?

Anyway, to help bring some Easter smiles, these little pouches were
made with love and I know they will be enjoyed.  
And best of all, Mom is so happy to be able to spread
some cheer among her friends.

Thanks for stopping by.

Happy Easter to you and your family.
These are adorable and the thought behind them is so special.
I often wonder how people can just park their loved ones like an old car and forget about them. But that happens even when people aren't put in homes or lodges.
Thanks for popping by my blog and leaving such a neat comment.

Those are the greatest, and they'll be much appreciated!
I drove the Handivan at the OFH again this morning!
I miss those people....I just didn't take MR.E to the hotel.
He goes to the bar, and I wasn't in the mood to try & talk him out of there when I had to go to work!
They're having Happy Hour at the OFH tonight, he can go to that!

These are so adorable! And how sweet and thoughtful it was for you to do this. Actually, there are days when I could send Jay away and not look back, but then I come to my senses. . .Of course, I'm joking, but some people can't handle the reality of their parents getting old and that's how they deal with it. . .avoidance. Pity. . . .Hugs, Curt
