Eggs and Bunnies

For all of us who celebrate Easter, or just like to get into the holiday spirit for the chocolate ūüėČ 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! ūüėČ

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. ūüėČ

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.

First Day Of Pre-School

JBear is officially a pre-schooler as of September 6, 2012. The night before he eagerly jumped into bed, after all, he is now a big boy and big boys need to get their rest.  The next morning, he was dressed and ready to head out the door before I even brushed my hair. Yeah Рhe was ready to go to pre-school.  New classroom, new teacher, new friends, oh and new toys of course. As he bolted out the door, I knew I had to capture this milestone but wanted to do something more than snapping a picture as he walked down the porch steps. So when you need a some inspiration, one place to look is Pintrest (of course!). There were so many cool photo ideas (as discussed here), and of course I pinned them all.  And then I stumbled upon this one:

It looked easy enough and was so stinkin cute I just had to do it.

Out came all my supplies; unfortunately I didn’t have a chalk board (I’m feeling a DIY project, right?!) so I had to improvise.

As for the writing, I soon came to realize two things: one, it is easier to fix mistakes on a chalk board, and two, my hand writing sucks.

So as I sat there, watching JBear do what he could to fix this my chicken scratch as I racked my brain trying to figure out a way to make this work, inspiration hit once again.

I grabbed the board, my camera, and JBear (of course), then headed for the beautiful outdoors.  After some tweaking, I came up with these:

All in all, they didn’t come out too bad. Of course, once the camera went up and the promise of cookies at the end of the photo shoot, my little JBear¬†vogued¬†, vogued, vogued! My favorite is the first one but I think after I play around more with the others they will be in the running.

So what do you guys think? Is this something you would do to document milestone moments?
