Spring Sprang Sprung

There are things about all of the seasons that I love. I love Summer except when it's 500 degrees outside.  I love getting to play with the girls outside, blowing bubbles, swimming, vacations, and all of the fun that summer brings. I love Fall and watching the leaves change, the crispness in the air.  I love Winter, I love the cold weather, bundling up, wearing my favorite fuzzy socks, building a fire, drinking hot chocolate.  My favorite season in Texas though has to be Spring.  There's just nothing like Spring in Texas.  The trees coming back to life, the BLUE BONNETS, longer days, slightly warm weather.

I also love all of the decorations that start coming out this time of year. All of the chicks and ducks, eggs, bright colors, etc.  With Easter coming up also I try to make sure our family keeps our focus on the true meaning of Easter and not so much the commercialized part. There is nothing wrong with celebrating the fun side of Easter but for my family Easter is a lot more than a bunny hopping down the trail carrying easter eggs filled with chocolate and other goodies.  That's all fine and good but the real meaning of Easter is about God giving up his son Jesus Christ to die for us so that we can have eternal life with Him.  That's worthy of a celebration if you ask me. :)

I do love decorating our house and now with all of the ideas I see on Pinterest, I love decorating even more.  I started this past weekend decorating our house for Sprin and as I add more decor I will post pictures. 

I started this past weekend with a new wreath.  It was so much fun to do and so super easy! I went to Hobby Lobby and EVERYTHING I bought was on sale! I was stoked!! Here is a picture of what I came up with.

I loved it so much that I had to make another one for my mother-in-law! So here is what hers looks like:

Aren't the birds adorable? I'm not sure why I love them so much right now but I just love all of the little birds I've been seeing around.  Reminds me of when I was little sitting at my Granny & Papaw's table for breakfast and we would watch all of the birds playing the trees and birdbath and the squirrels running up and down the trees.  I still sat in the same chair when I would spend the night with them even in high school. Such precious memories I have sitting there with them.  I guess that is why I love my little birdies on my wreath so much. :)
