Martha Stewart Easter Project

I recently happened across the Martha Stewart Easter Egg app and downloaded it mostly for the gorgeous pictures. However they ended up inspiring me. So Richard, Siobhan and I spent the day decorating eggs. I was mostly pleased with the results. I usually find Martha Stewart projects are much more complicated in practice than they are presented. This time though, I was able to recreate several of the techniques without many of the recommended supplies. Ireland's crafting supplies are limited, we mostly used what we could find around the house. Below are our results. Everyone had their own style. Richard ignored Martha, and decided to create our likenesses on eggs.

What an Egghead!

Go Ireland!

3 months

3 months! Everyone says how time flies, but I can't believe we're already at 3 months. Harris is working on rolling over, thinking about grabbing toys and is getting really great at holding his head up 90 degrees during tummy time. He has started using the bumbo seat and enjoying the new view of us working in the kitchen.

Poppys and Tulips

Poppy just left after a long eight days of golf in Northern Ireland. And lucky for us, he stayed a couple of days to visit with Harris and unwind. We got to enjoy one of our favorite Sunday in Dublin activities, market day at Howth. This is also the best time of year in the squares of Dublin with the beautiful tulips blooming. Harris also got to visit Temple Bar with his Poppy to share a Guinness and their love of fine headwear.

TJ in the bluebonnets

TJ has been continuing his miraculous recovery back in Houston. He's been taking long walks, sunbathing by the pool and enjoying the bluebonnets. I'm jealous!
