The weather is warming up, the days are getting longer, and the girls are all growing way too fast. I was looking at the bin of summer clothes for Gracie today and I couldn’t bring myself to get them out. I feel like I just put them away; it seems like Olivia was just running around in those very clothes. Time passes too quickly on days like this and I start to panic that I’ve let moments slip by that I won’t remember. Even through scrapbooking, photographing, and now, bloggging, I often feel like I’m only capturing the tip of the iceberg.
Two Easters ago, Olivia wore one of the outfits that I saw folded in that box this afternoon. I went into my office and thumbed through the mini-album I created to capture those sweet memories and it just made me smile. In case you’re looking for a bit of Easter inspiration, I thought I’d share the album.
I’m in denial. I just put away my Halloween decorations this afternoon. And since the trick’o’treat bags are still overflowing with sugar, I see no reason not to share just a few more tricks from this year’s festivities.
The girls helped me make these CREEPY, but delicious spiders. If only you could have seen mom’s face when she tried to bring herself to bite into one of these furry little guys. I used crushed pretzels for the fur and halved cherry jellybeans for the eyes – you can find the original recipe here. Yumminess!
