Jaxon woke up with 103.8 degree fever. . . I had to teach a lesson in church, so, instead of getting all dressed up in our Easter Garb, and snapping an awesome pic to post here today. . I got nothin' . Cuz Abby and I were the only ones that got dressed and went to church. Didn't take Jaxon (sick) didn't take Wade (too much trouble) didn't take Kaylin (needed to teach a lesson) and didn't take Daddy cuz he took care of the Crazy Bunch at home. (Kinda like the funky bunch, but different) Hmm. . . I hope THIS doesn't happen EVERY year! It seems to be becoming a pattern!
Anyway, that wasn't the ONLY bust. . . We didn't color Easter eggs (because I didn't want to even ATTEMPT that with Wade). We didn't' frost Sugar Cookies. . . (I got the supplies, but ran out of time) And we didn't go to the Easter Egg Hunt, (Because it rained--- I know YOU all went in the rain, but come on. . . I don't even own COATS for my kids anymore! Just sweatshirts!) Not only that, but Kaylin decided that to get in the spirit of things, she was going to keep mom and dad HOPPING all weekend because she cried for most of it. (HOWEVER, she has slept through the night for the last three nights. . and is peacefully sleeping RIGHT NOW :)
But, here are a few of the things I DID do. . . . made Waffles and Strawberries for my kids (who were out of school) on Good Friday. . Whipped Cream and Easter Sprinkles included!
To go to THIS!
The Performance at the Temple Easter Pageant was seriously impressive, and left an impression on my daughter that I am hoping will last an entire lifetime. I loved it, and it was TOTALLY worth sitting in the cold (68 degrees feels REALLY cold, OK??) Trust me, we were grateful for all those clothes, blankets and sweatshirts!
(Ps- if it looks like I did my hair, but did NOT put on make-up, that would be the case, because these days. . . it is either ONE or the OTHER!)
Wow, now that I think about it, Peter spent ALOT of time with the funky bunch this week! Thanks Honey!
