Last night was our talent show at church.  We were involved with the entire event, so didn't have a lot of time to do too much.  While Better-Half and I were working on the pre-program stuff, Son threw some treats together on a table and managed to take a couple photos, but not of everything.  Here's some chocolate mini muffins with pics he and I had made. We decided butterflies would be nice, even though we continue to get more snow each day.  :-)

Here's some marshmallow pops and splattered Oreo's he threw together for us too. Wish we had had more time, but
oh well.  :-)  I am just grateful for his help and effort and willingness!

For the program, Better-Half and I were asked to be M.C.'s---no picture available of that. 
But Son asked me to be his sidekick again for his Wayne Brady "Let's Make a Deal" contest for his part of the talent show.
That's my niece in the middle, our first contestant! :-)

Son wanted me to whisper his lines to him, if he forgot.  He really likes to follow the script, and try to sound like Wayne!
Not bad for someone with autism, huh? Who would have ever thought he would get up in front of people and show his humorous side?  I loved every minute of it with him!  I think the audience did too.  And all the contestants missed their Zonks!  Yeah!

During Easter Week, we were lucky enough to have an afternoon
with my sister and my niece.
It was the only chance that either of us would have to color eggs,
so Gramps let us use his kitchen,
as long as we brought lunch and treats for him too.  :-)

Niece really has become good with details.
We were talking about how much fun and
how much work it would be to
have a catering business together!  :-)

We made "nested" Oreos, white chocolate chow mein noodle
birds nest with malted milk eggs
 and Niece did some more d├ęcor on more Spring Oreo's.

And that's her marshmallow pops in background! 
This is basically the same things we made
last week at one of the churches, which we posted below,
except this time Niece worked with us
and she made things cuter than we probably did.  :-)
