Easter

All the Easter fun has come and gone but I would still like to share. A few of the things that made Easter great for me this year.

Decorating…I had so much fun bringing “Spring” into our new house. Literaly there was snow on the ground and I was willing Spring to Spring already with all the bright colors and decor. I couldn’t take another flake falling from the sky. Here are some of my favorite Easter decor ideas.

Of course we also colored eggs which is in everyone’s Easter traditions I think. We chose a tye die kit since Kaia is almost 9 she can handle something a little more advanced. Well it wasn’t a “kit” really just a few baggies to put the eggs in to smear around the color but we still had a great time even though we had egg dye stains on our hands for 2 days afterwards.

We also had perfect weather on Easter Day and it was a great day to be our on the McMullen “farm”. Kaia and all her cousins had an egg hunt with more eggs than they could fit into their baskets! Great food, family and fun sums it all up! We even enjoyed a walk down to the creek and saw some of the new critters on the farm.

Christmas all thru the house…

Christmas is of couse my favorite Holiday because I love Jesus! There are also lots of other reasons I love Christmas, a major one being how cozy our home feels during this time of year. So our decorating expidition began with decorating our NEW house…I have to admit it was a bit stressful adding Christmas on top of moving but it was worth it. Jon was actually gung hoe about getting the lights up on the STEEP roof peaks and they look amazing although I am not sure I agree with him risking his life for the beauty of it. I enjoyed decorating the mantle, staircase and big front window. Here are some photos to enjoy, we are sure ready to enjoy the holidays in our new home.
