Christmastime

It’s here, it’s here! We are smack dab in the middle of the season and the countdown is ON! It’s the first Christmas at our new home, so it was fun unpacking all of our Christmas bins and sprucing up our home for the first time. It actually inspired me to finally hang things on the walls and I turned the built-in bar (that we don’t use) into a hot coco bar (which Madelyn now uses daily). It’s been a process, though. My kids were sick after Thanksgiving and so I could only do things here and there, but it got done and we even did some gingerbread house building, orange drying and marshmallow making in the last few weeks. Decorating for Christmas has been one of my favorite things since I was a little girl and I’m constantly looking for inspiration on Pinterest. It’s so fun! I also finally got my little tree in a basket this year. I was so giddy about that! This season creeps up on us so quickly and I’m trying to savor every moment! Merry, merry Christmas!

 

 

Easter + Our Bunnies

Easter always catches me off guard. I’m not sure why, but it swoops in and I am always feeling unprepared. This year felt that way even more so, I barely had fresh eggs, let alone anything to dye them with. So, thankfully there is Google and thankfully I have a large assortment of food coloring. I used a recipe I found on McCormick’s website and it was perfect. It was easy and the colors turned out really fun! DSC_5207collage2DSC_5219DSC_5245collage3DSC_5254DSC_5262DSC_5277DSC_5278DSC_5280DSC_5284DSC_5290DSC_5293DSC_5300
