My "early" Easter wreath

I saw this cute wreath on Pinterest and I knew that I just had to make one. We have TONS of plastic Easter eggs and this was a great way to use them.

1. First off you cut out some cardboard from a box. I used a big dinner plate for the outside and a small dessert plate for the inner circle.

Here is our million (slight exaggeration) plastic eggs from our town Easter egg hunt and family members who have left us their kids' eggs.

2. Just start hot gluing the eggs around and then do a top layer of eggs.

 3. Then you add the Easter grass with hot glue and a ribbon in the middle. I had to trim the grass a little with some scissors.

It turned out so cute and I'm so excited to hang it outside for Easter.
I love it and it was super cheap and easy to make.

But until it is Easter time,  I will put my St.Patrick's Day sign back up!

And when you are done with the project, your little boy can climb into the box that you cut the cardboard circle for the wreath out of. He thought it was pretty cool that he was in the box!!

Here is the link to the project:

Deer hunt 2011

Daycen was so excited to get to go hunting with Daddy this year. He is so interested in guns and animals. He thinks he is pretty big, so Dell was happy when he had the chance to get a deer while Daycen was out with him. It wasn't a trophy buck, but Daycen thought it was one of the biggest ones he had ever seen!

Shaylee's field trip and 1st lost tooth

Hooray, I FINALLY have my computer back. It has had two viruses that are hopefully fixed. Now I have a ton to catch up on with the blog!

I was able to go with Shay and her class on their 1st grade field trip last fall. Our first stop was at a corn maze and the kids had so much fun trying to find their way through.

She kinda has a nail biting problem. haha

The kids got to do leaf pictures while they were waiting for the other classes to get done in the corn maze.

My sister in law also came on the fieldtrip with us and her little girl is in Shay's class. I thought this was such a cute picture of Raeshel and Maggie.

Back on the bus we were taking pictures with my phone.

The last stop was at a park and the kids got to plant seeds and listen to a story and play some games. Shay's favorite part was swinging. Then we ate lunch and the kids made cute leaf necklaces with their leaf rubbings they had done earlier. It was so much fun and I was glad I got to go spend some time with my sweet girl.


Shay's two bottom teeth had been loose for quite a while and one day when she came home from school, one of them was gone. No one even knew that she had lost it at school.
She was sure proud when I made a big deal about it and even though she didn't have the tooth, the tooth fairy still came and brought her a gold dollar that night. She has lost two other teeth since then. It is fun (and a little sad) to see her growing up so fast.
