Yep, that title pretty much sums up our Easter.

I had some plans for Easter but nothing ended up working out the way I wanted to, partly because I wasn’t feeling well on Saturday and so prep for the holiday didn’t happen.  I didn’t hard-boil any eggs, didn’t plan an elaborate Easter dinner, and we didn’t go on an Easter egg hunt.

It’s okay, I can get away with it for one more year while my kids are so young they don’t realize they missed out.  ;-)

The day wasn’t a total loss, though – it will be memorable, that’s for sure.  We got up in the morning and headed to church for Easter service.  My husband is a worship leader so we had to be there an hour early for practice but I still managed to get everyone dressed up and looking nice.  Emma looked the best out of all of us (she usually does).

I put Isaac in a cute frog polo shirt and pants, no onesie underneath – later I realized that was a BIG mistake.  About five minutes before the service ended there was an explosion from Isaac who was sitting on my lap, and gooey… um, stuff… came pouring out the back of his diaper onto my lap.  All over the front of my pants and my shirt.  It was SO GROSS.  Of course I had no extra clothes for myself (thankfully I did for him).  I wanted John to take me home and come back but he had to play two more songs at the end of the service.  So I wiped myself off best I could with wipes, loaded Isaac into his car seat, and headed out to the car where I sat and waited until John and Emma came.  Thankfully no one saw me except a very nice teenage girl who was helping me in the nursery.

I can tell you one thing, this baby is going to be in overalls from now on… I defy anything to seep through denim!

It was unfortunately rainy for the rest of the day but at one point when it had stopped I took the kids outside to try to get some cute Easter pictures of them in some bunny ears I had purchased.  Doesn’t it just figure that neither of them wanted to cooperate?  Emma refused to keep them on and wanted to do nothing but run blissfully around the yard.  Isaac was grumpy and probably just wanted to sleep.  Oh well!

We didn’t dye any eggs or have an Easter egg hunt, but next year I’ll do that.  :)  I did have a special springtime basket for Emma with some cute things from the Target dollar section (REALLY cute stuff like stretchy bugs, necklace pens, and magnets that can be painted) and later we had hot chocolate with marshmallow bunnies.  That was quite a treat for her, and I know she enjoyed her day.  :)

So what did YOU do on Easter?  :)

  • I posted what we did here:

    I know exaclty how you feel about the whole poop blow out thing! It happened to me too! It ended up happening while at a friends house during her baby girls dedication party! Owen had blown out on my pants in my lap and on their WHITE carpet. I felt so bad and slightly embarrassed. I guess you could quote that phrase that ahem *poop* happens. And from now on Owen always wear a diaper cover over his disposable diapers! lol … Blue Jean sounds like a fantastic prevention idea too. I’ll remember that when we go on vacation in a few weeks. LOL

    And about the whole photo thing… I’m right there with you too! My daughter only poses for me when she wants too. And if we are anywhere that isn’t home she’s running around and never looks at the camera for more than a second. I think it’s an age and a stage. Phew… parenthood is hard!

  • For Easter we went to church and after church had some friends over for a bbq and egg hunt for the kiddos. We forgot that the weather was going to be over 90 deg so we made the kids hunt the eggs fast because of the chocolate melting =). We had a wonderful time fellowshipping and celebrating the fact that we are sinners saved by grace by our blessed Savior dying on the cross and raising from the dead =). We went back to church for evening service and the kids did great even though most of them had no afternoon nap =). Most of us are military and so its wonderful that even though our family is far away we can count on our church family to be there for us.
