Spring time in Paris

OK With out any further ado here are My Spring time in Paris cards. I have been trying to get them up all week, However with all the rain and flooding that we have had it has been a messy week. I have had to mop up water twice and there is nothing that can be done to stop the flooding in my family room until late spring. Once the rain stops and it gets warm we can try and fix the problem for good, Abby keeps saying we have a river flowing in our family room.
Happy Birthday

I Want to color Eggs Mommy.

So this is what Abby had to say to me when I boiled eggs. I want color eggs today. This was Fri Feb 25 all the kids in Huber here out of school due to bad weather. So I told her sure why not might has well have something to do other than watch TV. So we colored EGGS...  So I forgot to get Pics of her coloring the eggs however I did get a great Idea. I ran and got her a piece of water color canvas paper and an old paint brush and let her have it painting with the egg color dies.

I mean why not it was way cooler than using finger paint and the colors where so brightly pastel and the color was not going to fade like finger paint. My Mom and I where so surprised by how bright and pastel the color where. She got the biggest kick out of her hands being stain with the die all different colors. But that didn't  last, by the next day her hands where back to normal.
