We're so happy Spring is here. And I just know it's here to stay, despite the most annoying snow showers we had today. I mean, it's APRIL already! It's hard to explain to Evie why I have both flip-flops and snow boots by the door for her...
I remember making these trees as a kid. I always used pink and purple tissue paper and made red bud trees. Unfortunately, I only had green and blue paper at home, so we went with a general Spring tree.
First, I drew the tree on brown paper, cut it out, and glued it to the yellow paper. Then I cut green tissue paper into small squares and put out a dish of white glue. Evie had so much fun! She wadded the paper into little balls, dipped it in the glue, and put it on the tree! Viola - instant Spring!
I have been married for more than 11 years to my fantastic husband, Chris, and we have two beautiful and energetic children. Evie is 5, and full of spunk and sparkle. Ethan is 2, and has taught me about trains and construction vehicles and Buzz Lightyear - and about sweet boy cuddles.
I strive to be gentle and kind - a reflection of the love Christ has shown to us. I don't always live it perfectly, but I am working towards a life of gratitude, joy, and love!
