The EGGcitment continues...

It has truly been the first day of the 'summer type' of days ahead of us. I was greeted by bright light peeping through the curtains. As soon as we all made it down stairs we put the cushions and seat blankets out in the garden and remained there for the morning. We even stayed in our PJs till mid-afternoon! The feel of Easter is all around us, new beginnings and new life. I thought I would share with you our Easter tree. Sadly for some reason I can not explain, I actually agreed to throw out years worth of hand made eggs for the tree, OK some where in a sad way, but I can not believe that I did this. So over the next couple of days the boys and I are on a mission to make some more. I have a pattern for some fabric eggs, I am hoping to find an hour or two to make some with my patchwork scrapes.
Keeping with the egg theme I snapped this picture of a little afternoon treat for my children, I am not big on Chocolate and sweets for the kids, especially as one of my guys reacts quite badly to sugar, But its Easter and I have an abundance of chocolate in the house. (Mostly because I gave up the lovely stuff for lent, only a few days to go now...yummy)!
Now to share with you a busy play corner of my home...the sand pit, its been well played in today. Can you spy the chair at the side with my knitting bag, YES I actually got a little knitting done today.
Now I did not blog at all yesterday in fact I did not get much done. A group of us took our babes to a farm for the day, you know one with a play area and pic nic area. Sadly my youngest was hit with a temperature and spent the whole time in my arms either asleep or whimpering. Poor little chap. He slept all the way home and in the evening I cancelled my night out (how rare to have a night out arranged) and I just settled down for a night of cuddles....I mean all night. I felt very loved indeed. I am pleased to say he woke up much better. My older child enjoyed the day and he got to feed a baby lamb. The JOYS of SPRING. Hope your all feeling the spring in your step...

How lucky you are to get out and enjoy the springtime weather! Mother Nature decided we are not worthy of Spring and so has turned back the clocks and given us another blast of winter. The wind chill was -17 this morning! D: YUCK!

I love that you put the Cadburry cream eggs in egg cups for your boys. That's just too cute!

What a lovely way to spend the day. Fabric eggs sound really fun- i think I have a pattern for them too- thanks for the reminder.

Have a blessed Easter
