Spring Sprung

I apologize for my absence. I've been in a blog funk--it happens. But now it's over and I'm back, for now any way.

So here's what's been happening in our neck of the woods:

The Spring fairy brought Noah a nice red ride-on lawn mower. EVERYONE who's anyone has ride on lawn mower in Indiana--they even race them.
Since getting the mower two weeks ago, Noah has mowed our hibernating grass once and is expected to do it again tomorrow. In addition, Noah is busy at work looking into modifications for said mower in preparation for the big race, which we WILL enter.
In the mean time, the kids and I are readying the house for Easter.
This year, for the first time, Alex helped blow out the eggs and paint them.
I was reminded why we haven't been doing a whole lot of crafting lately--Oliver. The boy can't wait to get his hands on each and every one of those delicate and breakable eggs.
So our Easter tree is up on our fire place mantle, away from little hands.
Happy Spring everyone, I've waited all winter for it.


  1. Yes...but is your riding lawn mower radio controlled? Gabe's is...and it is awesome.

  2. Thanks for posting. We miss you. Have fun.

  3. He blew the eggs? What are the eggs made out of?

  4. Julie: you've never blown out eggs? It's a normal white egg, with holes tapped in the top and bottom. You put your mouth on one hole and blow the egg white and yoke out the bottom. Then you're left with a hollow shell that you can paint and hang on an Easter tree. Mom used to make them with me when I was a kid.

  5. Yep, Julie, that was part of Easter when you were little. Now we don't even have Easter egg hunts. No kids around to have fun with. Dang, I miss my grandbabies.

  6. Ooo, so pretty! What a fun mommy you are (I'm sure I've said that half a million times to you by now). yay! yay! yay! for spring!

  7. Looks like a lot of fun! I had never heard of doing an easter tree either.

  8. Wow, I guess we are nobodys then with our sub-par push mower. Will you still talk to us? Congrats on the new wheels. You guys are collecting them lately!!!!
