Easter Inspiration

You know I like to leave everything to the last minute, so last night I was trawling pinterest on the hunt for the perfect Easter craft ideas to do with the kids over the next couple of days. I'm not sure we'll even get around to making any of these, but gosh they're pretty. I'm kicking myself I didn't order these Miffy cookie cutters in time, seriously how cute can one bunny get!?

An egg at last

Last week one of our girls finally laid her first egg! (apologies to those who have already seen this pic on instagram) We are beyond excited to have eggs at last, when it just seemed like it would never happen. A good six months has past since our girls first arrived, we lost a couple in the heat over summer, and have added a few new ladies to our flock. Nina presented us with her first egg at our backdoor step, after a few days she finally found the nesting box and has laid a sweet little egg everyday since. It really is one of the most rewarding and satisfying things, raising chooks and collecting their treasured eggs each day.

Just in time for Easter.

So now you're four. And its as if you have grown over night, I know everyone always says that, but its true. Not only do you appear somewhat taller, you're more independent than ever. You chatter on all day, to anyone who will listen, you're confident, wise and oh so clever. You're a feisty, march to your own beat kinda gal and listen only when it pleases you. Kindness comes naturally and you're always keen to help out, in the kitchen or mowing the lawn come to mind, but you even offered to clean the toilet the other day! You love making things, always cutting, sticking, drawing and creating. You're an awesome kid, loud, fearless and one of a kind.

Our hearts are brimming with love.
