March Post

This March has been fun for us. It has come in like a lion for sure, and with only a little reprieve, it is still roaring on. Spring, come quickly! This is the morning of Dr. Seuss's birthday when I told the girls that we were going to his Birthday party. The Spring Hill Public Library sure did pull out all the stops.

Here are my cute Thing 1 and Thing 2.

Here are April's and my big Thing 1 and Thing 2.

They got to make Fox on Socks and eat cake.

They got to visit the balloon man and the Cat in the Hat. They had so much fun. I have never been that into Dr. Seuss, but teaching preschool and having an emerging reader has made me change my tune a little bit. Patrick LOVES Dr. Seuss, and on his tuck in nights, he always reads Green Eggs and Ham. The girls love his funny voices.

We have had Community Helpers month at school during March, and I got to dress up in a Fire Fighter's Uniform.

Actually, Linds and I had to compete against each other in who could put the uniform on the fastest. It was comical.

Ansley wears ponytails now. She's potty trained; she sleeps in a big girl bed; she wears ponytails. She is sooooo big.

Last weekend on our only 2 warm days, I got Spring Fever and decided to decorate the house thanks to my friend Ashley's conglomoration of ideas that she posted on the_handmade_home. I love my banner of book pages and 3-d eggs.

We had our Spring Party and Easter Egg Hunt at Sunshine School, and it was freezing. I had picked out some cute little dresses for the girls together when I had dreams (delusions) that it would be Spring weather. Oh well, even though they were wearing sweaters, my little egg hunters still looked festive and cute. Their favorite thing to do at home is play Easter Egg Hunt. I have crushed many an egg underfoot during this funny-but-annoying game.

Daddy came to this party! Yay! Addison made him feel like a million dollars--introducing him to all of her friends and wanting to show him everything; Ansley--well, she didn't give him the time of day, acting shy and embarrassed. Bless them both.

My class had a brunch with breakfast casserole, cinnamon rolls, donuts, fruit, yogurt, and orange juice. Weren't the decorations precious?

I loved this collage that I made with Instacollage, but not enough to post it to Instagram. :) So, I'll post it here.  I loved the bunny bags that I made with my class for them to hunt eggs in. I loved our concept. We had each child bring in 13 filled eggs (because we have 13 students). We numbered the eggs 1-13 with a Sharpie, had some parents hide them, and then we assigned each child a number. Addison's number was 10, so she only hunted for eggs with the number 10 on them.  It was nice because it wasn't a free-for-all, and it made the hunt take longer.

We are enjoying our last week of March on Spring Break, having Addison's ear procedure, and preparing our hearts, minds, and baskets for Easter. Hoping for--and needing--some sunny weather.

I have gone through searching different sites for Promo Codes and most of them didn't please me. It was heaven sent in finding this site merely because they have every little thing that I want. Superb site!
