What’s Your Passion?

Everyone has one, or two, or three, or more things in their life that they just adore doing. It goes beyond just a past time, it is that passion that defines you. That love that captures your heart regardless of how old you get.

I have so many but the one passion that has stood the test of time for me is photography. I love taking pictures of people when they least expect it.  The candid photos that capture the very essence of that moment.  And of course, my favorite shots are those of my family.  Here are some of my favorites:

I also like to get a little artsy now and then….;-)

For every “perfect” picture that I take, I have about 30 that don’t turn out the way I wanted them to. Yet, every time I run out the door, I make sure I have my camera in tow because you just never know if today may be the day you get that perfect picture. 

Now it’s your turn. What is your passion?

Easter Egg Learning Game

Do you remember this from yesterdays post….

Well it was so cute I just had to try it out and report back to you guys. Thank goodness I saved/horded all those plastic easter eggs from previous years. 😉

The important part was to separate them and mis-match them up. This way kids will have to concentrate and match the correct corresponding letters or numbers rather than the colour.

As I dumped them out on the carpet, it immediately caught his attention. He bounced on over and helped me pop the eggs apart. Since we were just starting this game we made two piles: one for the “dots” and the other for the numbers. Then he went through and counted the dots and tried to match it up to the corresponding number.

I was amazed at how great this worked. Round one….SUCCESS!

The fun doesn’t stop here. 😉 We then popped them all apart again (I think this was is favorite part) and began to match the lower case letter with the upper case letters.

There are a ton of different combos you can do based on what level your child is at. There is even a version where kids can match up eggs to make words. Is it sad that I get excited about this stuff? Naaa didn’t think so. 😉

If learning with Easter eggs isn’t your cup of tea don’t fret, I will be posting again this afternoon so stay tuned. 😀


Eggs and Bunnies

For all of us who celebrate Easter, or just like to get into the holiday spirit for the chocolate 😉 here are some cute little ideas to try.

As he did with Christmas, my little man is chompin at the bit for Easter to get here. So to help pass the time, I found these cute ideas just for him to do and help “prep” for Easter (aka keep him busy so he stops asking his mamma when is Easter over and over and over and over and over again) ;-).

This is super cute and would be a nice little keepsake in his scrap book. We could use mommy, daddy, and JBear’s hands to make the wings.

I love this game since you can tailor it from counting, to letters, to emotions….the possibilities seem endless.

We have so many Easter traditions in my family but one that is very special is the Easter Bread (Guti di Pasqua). This year I am going to try my hand at Guti di Pasqua and hopefully (fingers crossed it turns out) surprise my mom.

What a cute take on deviled eggs for Easter. I wonder if they taste any different? Huh – we’ll just have to make them and see.

And then of course you must decorate….seriously, I told you guys before, any excuse I can use to decorate, I will! 😉

How stinkin cute is this for the front door?! It is relatable to Spring and Easter, and looks to be a quick and easy DIY piece. Love it!

Here is another super cute piece that looks super easy to make. The best part about this one is that it is all candy so there is no need to take it down and put it away after Easter is gone…just munch, munch, munch. 😉

These cupcakes are perfect for JBear’s class….that is if any make it there. They look DELISH!

So we’ve talked a little about ways to keep you little ones busy, ideas on cooking, baking, and decorating your home.

Now we are on to beautifying yourself for the Easter holiday. This is the look I am thinking of rockin at Easter….

It has all the elements, candy, easter eggs, her hair sort of looks like a nest….LOL.

Okay seriously, that may be a little too bold for me but the look below is right up my alley. The colours are pretty and if this is too bold for you, then you can easily calm it down for a more wearable daytime look.

And last but definitely not least, what to wear. I love this look. It is not overly dressy but still cute enough to mark the occasion and it looks comfortable which is always a must have. Pair it with a cute sweater jacket and I’m all set.
