Here in Michigan it feels like spring.
I am not fooled however, and am calling it
it is only March after all and it could very well snow next week!
Never the less, it has been warm and sunny and that makes it feel like spring.
You know, the feeling that makes you want to rearrange your whole house,
clean all the windows, and redecorate?
a little fluffing of the nest, perhaps?
The birds have been singing their sweet songs,
but instead of rearranging, cleaning windows, and redecorating,
in honor of the birds
I made these...
I know, I know, it was a tough task to take ;)
(In my defense, I did manage to sweep down the cobwebs)
I know we've all seen these,
and I wanted one of my very own.
The one above with 5 fresh water pearls in it is just for me.
I made more to share though.
They are actually very therapeutic to make.
Weaving nests and thinking of the children who keep flying out of them.
Danielle was home for two weeks for some oral surgery.
She was told in Atlanta that she needed 4 root canals asap
and without any support system in place down there,
she came home to the mama bird to be cared for.
Her 4 root canals actually turned into one, with some other work to be done
so after all was said and done, I'm glad she got a second opinion!
The best part?
While she was home she hung out with the family most of the time
and took me to the Roller Derby again for my bday!
We had a great time!
In the picture above she was trying to teach me to take
a picture without my eyes disappearing,
but I couldn't stop laughing so it didn't work!
She was also here for Hannah's special dance.
She told Hannah that she could invite her friends over and she
would do their hair and make up.
That made 6 girls all together!
It was a crazy, fun, wild, house full of girls!
Danielle made them all feel special and they all were lucky
to have an in-house professional make them look like princesses!
(excuse the photo, my camera does not cooperate at night with low lighting)
I really wish this one would have turned out better.
This is another way we enjoy the warm weather of our "pretend" spring...
Duane, Max and Hannah play catch in the yard while I snap pictures.
Another tough job of mine :)
We have been on walks, bike rides, grilled out, played soccer, catch,
hit tennis balls on the barn, and grilled out some more...
please, oh please don't let it snow.
I could get used to this early spring stuff!!!
For now, we are back down to two in the nest,
but this week John comes in for a week before he moves to NY.!
OH HAPPY DAY!
How is your nesting coming along?
I want to share a giveaway with you,
