Rest of our Easter 2015 Pics :)

Rest of our Easter 2015 Pics :)

I totally meant to post these already… but im behind. Here are the rest of our Easter photos. We celebrated Easter with our old neighbors (who we lived beside for two years while in our City of Refuge Home). We have spent I believe every Easter with them since we moved here in 2011. Its been fun to do and see how the kids grow each year. This year we had to host because Jessie and Dave had a house project going on that made it less than ideal to host ;-) – so we opened up our house for the hunt this year. It was fun… the kids had a great time!

Egg Decorating

I thought I would break these post up a bit… since I took a lot of photos. We decorated some Easter Eggs a few days before Easter with the boys. I haven’t really talked about Easter Bunny traditions on the blog before. At least I don’t think… but for those curious, we do not reallyContinue Reading

Christmas Memories 2014

A few Christmas Memories below… :) Typically we try to only do “3 gifts” a kid. My parents though were with us this Christmas. Usually they come before or after… but they were in the midst of closing on a home, so this year it just so happened they were here with my brother onContinue Reading

Ginger Bread House Fun – & Best Icing Recipe

Yesterday we made up some Ginger Bread houses. Or “house” I should say. I did the foundational pieces to the house using graham crackers and a homemade royal icing… once it was built and ready to go, I then layered on more icing and let the kids have at it. Was fun. I must applaudContinue Reading

Used

Most bloggers do their “christmas” rants before Christmas. I think I am the type to do it after… maybe because this season seemed oddly busy and I truly had no time to write. In this post ill throw in Christmas photos throughout, just to spread them out some ;-) *The boys stockings btw, small snippetContinue Reading

Adjusting Holidays

With Travis’ new line of work… I have come to realize almost every Holiday that rolls around, will be spent alone. Last Christmas and Christmas Eve was an eye opener for me no doubt. I got pretty depressed during those days… and one thing that really made it worse was getting on facebook on thoseContinue Reading
