Easter Shananigans. { Naturally dyed eggs & floral crown bunny ears }

Last year was a total write- off in the fun,  seasonal, things – to -do with kids department. I was just too exhausted with the twins pregnancy and I just kept telling myself,  ‘ better luck next year..’ Hah! The kids are on spring break right now and to ward off going crazy I’ve tried to fill part of our days with activities and festivities… I thought naturally dying eggs would be something fun to try, so that’s exactly what...

When 3 Become 5

When I was pregnant with Harlan,  a part of me mourned every month that went by. It was to be our last. Three kids at the time,  seemed like a good number.  I thought for sure that if she was a girl,  my feelings of wanting another baby would somehow go away. But they didn’t.
