Spring SNOW Showers

Yep, you read that right.....we're having Spring SNOW showers today! Just look at my poor Crocus :( They hardly even got a chance to open up & now they're all squished by the snow!
Luckily, my Tulips haven't bloomed yet, but they were getting ready to.....poor things! We've had snow in April before & even an ice storm a few years ago, so I should be used to it......afterall, this is Michigan.
I finally got to talk to Cassie yesterday :) Jim decided to try to call her at the hotel when he got home from work & it was so good to hear her voice! She's having a wonderful time, but she said that she's not ready to come home yet. KIDS! She told us that she tried both red wine & beer (since the drinking age is only 16 there) & luckily, she didn't like either of them :) She also said that she still has a lot of money left, but since they just got into Germany yesterday, I'm sure she'll spend most of it there. Jim & I are thinking about driving up to Traverse City on Saturday to surprise her at the airport.....all depends on this weather though.
I decided to take some updated pictures of parts of my scraproom since I've been doing a little organizing/rearranging lately. Above is my Expedit bookcase from Ikea, which I absolutely love! I changed my Cropper Hopper paper holders around & bought a few more since I was running out of room. Somehow, paper just keeps following me home everytime I go to The Scrapbook Zone ;)
Here's a closer view of my paper.
On top of my Expedit, I decided to change some of my decorations & added an old Family Album & box that belonged to my Mom.
Here's a close-up of the Family Album.....inside are lots & lots of old pictures of my Mom, Dad & sisters that I need to make copies of & scrap.
This old box was in my Mom's bedroom & held some old love letters between my Mom & Dad.
Here is my newly organized Clip It Up. I'm still on the fence about whether or not I like this. It's a LOT bigger than I expected it to be, so I'm not even sure if I'm going to keep it or not. We'll see.

Not sure when I'll get a chance to update again. Jim is off from work for the next 4 days, so I'll be spending time with him & Cassie when she returns.
Wishing you a Happy & Wonderful Easter!
Benita
