What a wonderful Easter we had!

I took Landry to the doctor on Friday for strep throat and Ansley was running a 102.1 fever on Saturday, so we didn’t do much, but we enjoyed it anyway.

I saw a cute idea on Pinterest, so I thought I’d do it with the kids.

Saturday night, we “planted” magic jellybeans!

Then covered them in hopes E.B (have you seen HOP? It’s pretty cute!) would leave us a surprise!

We left out carrots that night too.

Sunday morning, the carrots had been nibbled on and he had left some of his tail fluff on the table!  He also left foot prints and chewed carrots leading to the kids goodies!

Landry wasn’t too happy as you can tell, I don’t think he was ready to get up yet.

He quickly changed his mind though!

Besides the kids goodies, E.B. also hid some eggs for them to find

Then we went outside to check our magic jellybeans and found 4 giant suckers!

As usual, mom made a great Easter lunch! We figured they had already been exposed to the kids illnesses, so it wouldn’t hurt to be around them.

The Easter bunny visited their house as well, so the kids baskets got more use!

This is the best it got for a family picture

The best part?  Eating all the candy!

Grammy & Bam Bam’s Easter bunny also brought bubbles! While Chris went to his families Easter, we stayed a little longer to play with them.

I know none of this is the reason we celebrate Easter, but it brings kids joy, and that’s all I can ask for in their lives.  I thank God everyday that he chose to forgive all our sins and let us live on this earth.  We are so blessed.

Happy Easter!

Kid’s Bathroom Reveal

Just wanted to share the new look in the kid’s bathroom!

A reminder of how it looked when we bought the house


We painted it chocolate brown and I used some brown and turquoise accents when we re-did everything before moving in


This is what it looks like now! I could not possibly love it more! It’s so bright and cheery now.  I made the shower curtain out of a huge tablecloth and got red, blue, green, yellow and orange hand towels to change out.

I also found a fun red circle rug that I added in front of the toilet

Here’s a few sewing projects from the last few weeks

Here’s Ansley’s Easter dress.  Mom appliqued and embroidered it for me and then I sewed it up

Here’s my first go round at a “knot” dress.

Hope everyone is enjoying spring!
