Thanks Ron. I got My birdhouse. I love it! Did you hear we're supposed to get snow and lots of it? My husband will not put my birdhouse up until after the snow goes away. So I won't be writing my post to show it off until after that time.

Oh I am sorry to hear that I am never too old for an Easter Egg hunt:) on a side note I was trolling on one of the cooking websites and they asked if I would do a survey, so I was in a good mood and agreed it was ALL ABOUT CHOCOLATE:))
