April Means...

April weather is cray-cray, huh? I have friends way up north in South Dakota who just had a snow storm and lost their power. Spring has sprung Mother Nature. Break out the flowers and warm weather!

So this got me to thinking about the month of April and what should be going on and decided to list what April means to me.

April reminds me of...

1. Out like a lion, in like a lamb or is it out like a lamb, in like a lion?



2. Easter, Palm Sunday and palm leaves. My mom would always make things with the palm leaves

Braided palm fronds.

3. My oldest nephew's birthday. OMG he is 12 years younger than me so I always saw him as a bro.

4. Festivals!! Arts and craft festivals in Texas abound in April and May. We had the Azalea Trail, next is the Bluebonnet Festival. I am going to try the Peanut Festival this year. We travel all over Texas for festivals. You can search your area for them. Best places to go for free! They always have things for the kiddies too.

5. Donate a Life Month. This is near and dear to my heart. I have two different family members who have had a kidney transplant and are doing awesome! One transplant is only a year old and the other transplant is going be celebrating year 7 in June!


6. April showers bring May flowers. And boy does the state of Texas need the rain!!

7. Flowers blooming. oooohhhh aaaaahhhhh

8. Tornados! It is tornado season and we need to be prepared. Watch means keep an eye out and Warning means take cover!! Don't confuse the two (most people do!) FYI: I love to chase me some tornados!


Aunty Em! Aunty Em!


So, tell me what do you think of when you think of April? I would love to hear from you!
