Celebrating Spring Link Party

 Hi all!  Is it Springtime weather where you live yet?  Pretty nice here in Nevada (not Las Vegas lol).  We have teamed up with 8 other bloggers to bring you a link party to wash away the Winter blues!
Feel free to link your posts related to April's Fool, Spring, Easter--crafts, recipes, gardening, adn activities!  Sounds like a plan! March 16th-April 16th.

I have a quick little craft (well, maybe not quick...).  Foam eggs are easily found at Walmart, Target, Michael's, etc.  My son Eric used his artistic talents and a few markers to come up with a nicely-decorated for Easter egg.

You find more info here.

Ali fancied up a foam egg, too.

On with the party!  Can't wait to see your posts!
