Decorating for Spring

It seems like spring will never arrive this year.  We have had just a taste of spring-like weather here and there, but it mostly still feels like winter lately.  I decided if we can't have spring outside, then we at least can have spring inside.  It's been a long time since I did any kind of spring decorating but this year seemed like the perfect time. 
One of my favorite Easter decorations is the little bunny figurine (top left) of a mommy bunny with a baby carriage.  I bought this back when I was pregnant with my first little Punkin in 1995 - it always brings back such good spring time memories of her first Easter. 
  I love these blog templates that let me put multiple pictures together, but for some reason they make the pictures look a little blurry and out of focus - sorry about that! Too much work to go back and change it now - ha! 
 Everything is so bright and cheerful now - the dining room feels like a breath of fresh air! 

Happy Spring!!

Mummy Wrap 2014

 One of the highlights in second grade at our little classical school is the Egyptian Mummy Wrap!  Our second graders get VERY excited when it comes to learning about Egyptian history.  Their wonderful teacher makes Egyptian history come alive in a way that you just wouldn't believe.  Who knew 8-year-olds could be so interested in the mummification process? And be able to tell you every detail about it? Simply amazing. My Boo checks out books from the library about Egypt ALL the time.
My favorite little mummy.

 Wrapping up the teacher is always the favorite part. 

 Mommy's can make great Mummy snacks!! :) 
 Our little mummys always remember to say their prayers 

 Such beautiful attractive little children - and did I mention they are also quite creative??

 Yes, she must be a real mummy since we all know Mommy's (er... mummys) always have eyes in the backs of their heads.
