Snippets: Easter, Spring, Daily Life

No exciting project to share, just some random photos of an ordinary day, and a bit about our Easter tree. 

Some Spring decor possibilities. In a big messy pile. Yikes!


Deer grazing peacefully on the lawn : )

Herman the gerbil cruising around in his ball.

Another pot of grass seeds started. 

Trying out some different Spring decor in the dining room.  
It's a sickness : )

Cheerios with "Elton Egg", while my 5 year old pretends to fiddle a song from Fiddler on the Roof using his drumsticks. 

Messy, but cheerful collection of baby quilts and tablecloths. 

9 year old Amelia, becoming the world's best pancake maker!

 We've been doing an Easter tree for years, which always involves me dragging a branch home from one of our outings. 

We use ornaments that represent different sections of scripture.

This year I did something a little different and used some branches I already had to form an Easter tree cross. I used a galvanized bucket full of rocks to stand it up. 

Sometimes 'ordinary' is the best kind of beautiful, don't you think?
