Spring Fever

Easter is fast approaching and so is spring which means spring cleaning and DIY decorating and all things bright and cheery. I am a little sad that ski season is ending only because our entire family just learned how to ski and it was fabulous. Now the girls are totally  addicted to skiing. So am I. Apparently we shouldn’t have waited until March to learn to ski.

Outdoor Activities

Anyways, I have plenty of awesome spring and summer activities and sports I love too. In fact, won’t it be lovely just to get out and go for a walk? I have been walking much of the winter, but there were dozens of days when the path back home was so treacherous I worried I’d never make it. And all the minus 25 Celsius weather was a bit exhausting.

Just a couple of short weeks and we’ll be seeing the bunnies out in the yard. There was one last year living under some of the deck near the pool. Then there were two skunks also out there last spring, oh and a duck we named Beauford. The kids are already asking if he will be back. Anything is possible in the spring!

    That’s such a cool and artsy craft! I can probably make these since it’s not that hard. My nieces and nephews will be with me for Easter, so I have someone to decorate the house with!

    This is seriously one of the cutest DIY Easter banners I have ever seen. Love your paper choice for the bunnies. But the real stars have to be the adorable eggs. I absolutely love how you decorated them and I can’t wait to copy them. Pinning!

  • Tammilee Tips

    Oh my goodness this is absolutely adorable!! I think my favorite part is the bunny tail made out of a cotton ball. This is a great easy craft to make for Easter and I love how easy it is to customize!

      Thanks Tammilee! I think it’s adorable too. I have been following your travels by the way. Hope you are having a great time in Thailand.

    I can’t get over how absolutely adorable this is!! I love how you not only cut out the bunnies and made a garland, but you added little cotton tails! I am totally pinning this!

  • Victoria

    I love this activity. I still have not decided what I am going to do with the kids for Easter yet though. I think we may go to church or possibly see if my mom wants to do a family dinner.

  • April

    What a cute crafting idea! So far I have only put out one Easter decor thing, so maybe I will give this a try. I believe I am hosting Easter dinner this year and need to decorate some.

  • John Lopez

    Wow, I really love this time of the year, Easter is such a special holiday and brings back the memories of my childhood. Easter Egg Hunts, chocolate, and more chocolate. These are such nice decorations and would make any Easter celebration beautiful.
