Spring has Sprung!

In the words of our friend Lindy Li (and Little Bill :-)):

Spring is here
Spring is here
It's the best time of the year!

In my very first version of a Thankful Thursday post, I would just like to say that we are VERY thankful for (somewhat) warmer weather. It looks like spring will be making an appearance after all! Every morning this week we have awakened to see new flowers blooming in our yard. The colors are magnificent! Lia and Jim planted some vegetable plants under a grow light in our basement a few weeks ago and those are coming up nicely as well. We are all excited to move them to our outdoor garden and spend the summer in tomato heaven!! I am glad Lia is such a good veggie eater. As you can see from the collage, her new favorite treat is PINK MARSHMALLOWS. She is infatuated with the mere thought of their sugary goodness. Luckily for us, she is good about eating her "healthy food" first...and after all, what's life without the occasional pink marshmallow??

What a beautiful collection of pictures to celebrate this gorgeous time of year!!!

Really, who can blame Lia for wanting to eat something PINK and sugary??? Good job for her eating her veggies and good stuff, too.

Hugs to you dear friend~

Kate - you must dish, where'd you find the pink marshmellows - my little bugs would claw off an arm for those!

Love the spring flowers - Em has to cheer tomorrow morning - it better be warmer!! Only two croci have popped in our yard, I am waiting, staring the others down:)

Have a super weekend!

I absolutely love the collage. What beautiful pictures! Mallory loves marshmallows too. I have had to hide them lately because she constantly goes in the pantry to grab a handful. :)
I also love those shoes in the collage. We almost bought those shoes. SO cute! Lia is just so beautiful!

Hey Kate,

Love the pictures. I am so happy for spring too. I went to a garden center today and bought some flowers and a pussy-willow tree. I am very excited about my tree. Since I am a blogging rookie you will have to tell me how to make a collage.

What a pretty collage! I almost got those shoes for Hannah and didn't. Now I regret it..might have to go back and get them. :)
Oh...and I can just see Lia eating those pink marshmallows. I need to get those for Hannah. I would probably have to hide them or she would eat them all in one day. ;)

Lori said...

That's right, everyone needs a pink marshmallow now and again! :)
Your collage is beautiful~ Happy Spring!!
