What are you Playing?

This is our go to game when friends come over.

However, we are looking to expand from our fav.

We have the all time favorite but we really don't ever play it anymore.

So, I am asking you to give me your opinion. What do you play? Players ages usually ranges from 10-old.

Ways to Dye Easter Eggs

I blew my first eggs of the season this morning.

We will have a lot over the next 2 weeks so, I can get us ready for some egg dying.

Here is a list of some of the great ways to color those eggs.

These were made using a Cricut

Super cool Silk Tie Dying

These were made using Crayons, tissue paper and rubber bands

These were made from using Oragami Paper and mod podge.

Stickers had these gorgeous eggs. They are dyed with onion skins. The leaves are held on by a stocking.

Manny's Big Hits

Even though my child is doing the hitting it still makes me cringe.

I know I have to get used to it because next year he moves up a level where they hit even more.

He's #35.

He sure makes his Dad proud. You can hear Ryan's comments.

And in his defense these were all legal hits.

Is everyone as addicted to Pandora as I am. How have I ever lived with out it?

I, of course, have to thank Chickie for being the person who originally introduced me.

I change stations with my mood and the best thing is, if there is a song I love, I can give it a thumbs up and it will be played more often.

And if there is a song I loathe, I can give it a thumbs down and I never have to hear it again. I know, I know, I am not supposed to start a sentance with and, well tough.

The Joys of Spring

So, yesterday, I made the mistake of posting on facebook that I felt so lucky to finally be seeing Robins and Bluebirds back in my yard. Our snow was just about gone. Just the residual few clumps.

But, of course, it is still March, so yes, we woke up to about an inch of snow.

At least, we had this lady and her sibling in the yard to help ease the UGH of a lingering winter.
