Ahhh, Spring!

I thought I would appease Sarah and post some "Spring" Loveliness. Now, you all need to realize that Lovely is a very relative term and that in my world sarcasm IS lovely, so take it as you will. Maybe I should call this post "Shades of Loveliness."

We did our Easter celebration with my parents and sister and brother-in-law a week early as Mandy and Peter were suppossed to be gone on Easter. We were able to have the Egg Hunt outside even though snow pants and mittens and boots were required. It was a balmy almost 40 degrees.
I found a Star Wars Easter Egg kit. What better way to celebrate Jesus?
On Easter morning, as we were all scrambling to get ready (OK, I was scrambling to get ready), I asked Curt to take some pictures of the girls in their easter dresses. This is one of 5 pictures that all looked goofy. Ummm, thanks...
Mommy, then took over the camera.

I made my mommy, Curt's mommy and Mandy tote bags for Easter this year. This is Curt's mom's bag. The girls did drawings and chose fabric and I appliqued the pictures on the linen bag. This is a bird house and bird sitting on an egg on a nest.
A Spring Sunrise on my street. Taken this morning. With 3+ inches of fresh snow!
Happy Spring!
When I went grocery shopping on Monday night, there was a cart full of sad looking Easter Lilies marked down to $1.99 each. I HAD to rescue one. It is looking much better now and even gave me 3 blooms so far. It smells so good. My husband didn't even laugh at me for having to "rescue" a plant, but my mom did.

Lisa, could you please to send Spring here as you all seem to have moved on directly to Summer?

I actually snorted at the Star Wars comment! Nice bags, they're BEAUTIFUL! Thanks for the update!

I'd send you Spring if I knew where it went! I don't think we had one this year! I think what we had was a rainy week between "winter" (I always put winter in quotes down here because really? Can you call this winter?) and summer. We will now have summer until November.
