Easter '09

You're lookin' at it.....

Zilch. Notta. Nothing.

I went ahead and saved myself some time and didn't even try to get a picture of my kids in their adorable pink and gray outfits. I didn't set the Easter baskets out and I will go ahead and admit that I never even bought Bode one (thankfully his teachers had an extra one at the sonshine school hunt in pics below). I sent him to an Easter egg hunt yesterday with our Fisher Price grocery basket sans plastic food.

Someday soon, when the weather is beautiful and I have two pockets full of jelly beans (aka bribery) I will dress my kids back up in their outfits and take some pictures, then I will photoshop today's date on them. And I will buy Bode an obnoxious basket with a huge truck on it and set them out one random morning when we aren't trying desperately to get out the door to church on time.

And I will tell them the beautiful story of Jesus and the empty tomb. I may even teach them "Up From the Grave He Arose." But not today. Today I will just survive. Some days are like that.

Don't feel too bad...my kids hunted the SAME easter eggs they got at SSS on Thursday, but they don't know that! ; )

Amen... we did that last year... and Stone was no worse for it... actually it was a quite bit more relaxed!

Sounds like our Easter. I didn't get to fix my hair because things were so crazy around here. It was pulled back, wet, and all. That's what I get for Micah having to be at both services.

R U kidding me!? I totally got on the internet just now for the specific purpose of admiring Mia's dress on your blog. It was STUNNING. I got just a glimpse of it at church. I can't believe you don't have up close pics of the detail your mom did..the fabric, the birds...it was amazing. I want to see it again!!! More more!
