We kicked off Easter festivities with an egg hunt at the school for Eli's class.
That night we finished up dance pics and then headed out for a tball game. I was hot as a pig in a blanket. Oh my word! I'm one of those people who like the warm weather, but I was seriously contemplating wearing a bikini to the next game. But I decided nobody around has done anything to deserve having to look at that. Maybe I'll just make a fan.
The next morning my Mom took off of work to go with me to the kid's field day. I'm so glad she did. We've never been to field day here so I didn't know what to expect. They had grades k-2 doing events at teh same time and of course Eli and Sarah's seem to always happen at the same time on the OPPOSITE end of the field. I think I got the biggest workout running up and down the football field. Sarah was not excited about field day. She kept talking about having to run the 40 yard dash and saying, "I don't know why they're making me do this." She is so my daughter. I don't understand the purpose of running somewhere when you could stroll and sip a Diet Coke. Anyway, she came in 3rd for her class! I was so proud. I don't think either of us knew she could run that fast!
We went for a yummy lunch at Pepper's and then had to head home to wait for the carpet cleaners. And to bake 70 cupcakes. And 100 mini brownies. And lemon bars. I was astounded with how clean they got my carpet, but I'm pretty sure they are going to block our number the next time we call. :) The kids stuffed eggs with candy while we were all exiled to the kitchen.
The next morning we were in full gear getting ready for our Easter Egg Hunt/Open House. I accidentally called it the "haunted house" at one point and let me tell you, as I cleaned in circles all week I was afraid that was what it would be. SCARY! I finally got the house clean, the cupcakes frosted and the table decorated.
Our Easter included a nice day at church, dinner with my Mom and brother, Philip, then heading out to have dessert with Josh's side of the family. You might be a preacher's wife if you pack up for a trip like this. :)
Whew! If anybody actually got through this whole thing, bless you! I promise I will soon be back to the deep, important, thought provoking blogs I usually write. Okay, maybe not so much. I just promise I will never post this many pics again!! Hope your weekend was blessed and full of everything important to you!
