10 on 10 : April

It's the 10th!
So I'm linking up with Rebekah with her fun photo challenge

once a month on the tenth taking a photo an hour for ten consecutive hours. Finding much life and beauty among the ordinary things of our day!

We took the lead from the Christian school and took the day off.
I am so glad we did!
I needed a day to catch up after a fun filled weekend!

Here's our day captured in pictures:

 Love my mom's cinnamon roll recipe.
It makes 2 dozen.
We ate the first dozen on Easter and baked the 2nd dozen on Monday.

 Daily piano practice
Just look at the concentration!

 Day after Easter, 
time to put away the baskets and plastic eggs.
I just can't handle additional clutter!

 I would like to apologize to my fellow Montanans, 
it will snow tomorrow because I put away all our winter gear.

 I hung my new kitchen curtains
made from vintage sheets.
Curtains for a buck?  Yes please!!

 Raise your hand if you had an egg salad sandwich for lunch yesterday!

 Oh my Addy.
Homegirl is not afraid to mix patterns.

 Spring + Mud boots = FUN

 It makes my heart happy to watch my girls climb trees.

The girls played outside ALL afternoon.
Pure bliss.

It was a great day!

Thank you Rebekah for this fun challenge to find beauty in the ordinary.

ten on ten button
Hope you have an extraordinary day!
