Happy Easter to all our friends!

Here are two of us posing by the new Easter tree which Maman brought home for us yesterday.
It's very pretty, don't you think?
Helena is borrowing Daisy's pink dress.
Our cousin is on the left. She still hasn't told us her name.
Happy Easter!
Love from all of us at the Bleu Manoir!

Tante Martha's Easter card

These darling girls belong to Tante Martha.
She took the beautiful picture.
She lives far away in the USA.
Her girls are very, very old.
Sometimes they are called antiques but I won't call them that because it might hurt their feelings!
Maman made some Easter cards and we helped.
Tante Martha runs the BSC group and that's where we meet all these fun friends.
We share our dress ideas and our dress patterns too.
Tante Martha is a whiz at making really good patterns. They fit so well!
Happy Easter, dear friends!
Love from Yvette Marie and all.

Our Easter egg decorating

We are hard at work dying Easter eggs.
Zoe put them in the basket.
This is Maman's basket from a long time ago.
It's breakable so Zoe is being very careful.
Helena was helping at the table.
Daisy came over for a visit and helped to boil the eggs.

Suddenly there were baby chicks everywhere!
Daisy looks astonished.
I sat down on the floor to play with them.
Aren't they cute?

Helena sat down too and so did Daisy.
We all love soft and cute baby chickens!
Did some of the eggs hatch?
We can't figure out where they came from.

After we cleaned up the room Daisy and Zoe put on a puppet show for us.
It was cute too, and well done!
The baby chicks were put in a pen outside.

Maman bought the puppet theatre for us at the Dollar Store.
That place has fun things for us. The puppets are so cute.
We are excited because Easter is coming closer.
This year it's very late at the end of April.
That's because it has something to do with the full moon and Passover.
I can't understand these things. Neither can Maman.
But Easter is Maman's favourite time of the year.
She loves eggs and chicks too but most of all she is happy because Easter is the best time of all.
Do you know why?
Love from Yvette Marie and all the rest of the gang. xoxoxo

Pink clothes!

This is one of our friends.
Her name is Madeline.
She is a Bellette, which is a cousin to Bleuette.
She is a little taller than we are.
Madeline's Maman made her a cute pink playsuit.
Doesn't Madeline look pretty?
I wish my playsuit would be finished soon!
Love from Yvette Marie

Vintage Easter card

Isn't this a cute vintage Card?
We think it looks a little bit French.
We've finished making our Easter cards and it was fun!

My adventure!

Hello dear friends!
I haven't been to this blog for a long time. I fell asleep on Maman's window sill.
But now Spring is here and I'm wide awake!
Just look what Maman bought for me! Do you know how long I've wanted a Vespa?
A looooong time!
Maman helped me take it outside yesterday.
It was very cold but nice in the sunshine.
In March we only had 5 days without any rain.
That's why it's called a Rainforest where I live.
It's kind of exciting but you can't go out when it's pouring rain.
Anyhow, I just had to tell you about my new adventure with the Vespa.
Love from Yvette Marie.
