I can't believe it's APRIL!!





















The days are just moving so quickly. It's hard for me to believe that we are well into April. I'm so ready for some sunshine that sticks around for more than a day or two!

It's been a busy week and I'm looking forward to slowing down as we approach this Easter weekend. It's so important to me that Easter for my kids, is not just about chocolate bunnies and Easter egg hunts (although I'm sure you'll see photos soon of both!) But, I really want to focus more than ever this year about why we even celebrate Easter. Ashley asked me tonight, why the Easter Bunny leaves chocolate and candy but no crosses or anything. 'Doesn't he know about Jesus?' she said. **gasp!** She went on to say that she had considered leaving him a note. Is that the sweetest thing or what?? I think I just might be including a few extra things in the baskets this year!

The beginning of my week started with some fun news on the GCD Studios site. I was listed as one of their 'spot light gals.' You can read about it on their blog.

A bit later in the week I found out some more fun news on the Scenic Route website. I was a monthly challenge winner for March! That means I get to pick a line of my choice. So excited because I've been wanting to try out their new line called, Garden Grove. It's really pretty!

I wanted to share a few layouts that I was able to get done this week. Can you believe that this was a January day and Kelsey was out in her bare feet and ballet leotard?? The weather is so strange!! Last night they bundled up with scarves and mittens!! LOL!























Here is another layout with Ashley. It was so fun to see her run to the closet and pull out a dress that she had gotten from cousin and put it on to play outside just because the sun had finally come out again!
