Bits of Easter Here and There

Kayla asked me last week "When are you going to put out all the bunny decorations for Easter Mom?"  Apparently my decorating for Easter is not enough to catch her eye, I asked her if she has looked around the house at all because my decorations have been up for the past month.  I don't go all out with Easter decorations atleast not like Christmas or anything.  Spring is more about the pretty colors and flowers outside for me but there are definitely bunnies scattered around the house....if you look!



After looking at all these pictures I'm not quite sure she has lived in the same house for the past month!  The bunnies are kind of hard to miss, right?  
Can you believe Easter Sunday is here in just 4 short days, hope you are all ready!!

Palm Sunday



For Palm Sunday we gathered at my in laws to see family we haven't seen for awhile.  The kids were very excited to see their cousins and of course eager to have their first egg hunt of the season.  The eggs were not only stuffed with candy but lots of money.  Both of the girls came home $30 richer!  I told them they should be taking their parents out to dinner and a movie with all of that money but they seem to have their own plans on what to use it on, oh well it was worth a try!  










She had to work for that egg, it was filled with a ten dollar bill!







I'm guessing she is enjoying that cookie

prettiest "almost" 7 year old I know!




I'll be back soon with some Easter scattered around our house!

Ten on Ten

Time for April's ten on ten!
Here's a peek into our sunny Spring day,

ten on ten button



pretty Spring flowers to walk out to each morning before breakfast


it's always rough getting us all ready and out the door on time every morning but somehow we manage


might have to buy some more jelly beans thinking these might not make it another week!


my dining room has become a housing complex for toys the past week, they have one more week left and then it's clean up time so the Easter bunny doesn't trip while hiding the eggs


one home from school and playing happily

Sunday

Sunday's weather was beyond perfect, after a very cold Saturday, Sunday came with sunny skies and temps in the high 70's.  Kayla and I took a trip to the nursery and picked up some flowers so I could do some gardening.  The girls spent some time working on their Kiwi Crate boxes and then set up their little city to play with.  Before the sun went down hubby washed cars while some bike riding took place and I even enjoyed some quiet time laying out in the backyard alone. 
The day ended with an easy and tasty pasta dish along with an easy dessert of chocolate pudding with whipped cream and sprinkles.  The day was everything a Sunday should be!
