Last weekend - Palm Sunday - my in-laws, grandparents, sister and her boyfriend had lunch with us. This weekend Kyle's side job called and he and I tried to navigate through a marathon to make deliveries in the hot sun, braved wal-mart for Easter Egg hunt supplies and came away with several convictions of how NOT to do Easter based off what we saw displayed by fellow customers, and stuffed eggs to Lord of the Rings Extended version (now THAT my friends is how to do it!!). Sunday we got up early for Sunrise service, had breakfast with the church and in-laws again, dashed home to get church clothes on, came back and hid Easter Eggs during the Sunday School Hour, expected about 6 kids and instead 22 showed up for Children's Church!!! Which was awesome after Kyle and I got over our 10 seconds of panic and quickly reorganized our color-coded-by-age-group Easter Egg Hunt. Finished church, took some kids home after dad-in-law staged a photoshoot (which the combination of the angle, his camera, the sun shining in our eyes and us melting in the sudden heat and fancy clothes made the photoshoot... well... it didn't do us any favors. Made us all look very hobbit-ish and double-chin-ee. So I didn't post those) taken by one of the kids. Collapsed on the couch for 45 minutes then went to our dear friend's house for Easter Lunch at 2. Got home at 4... felt very zombie-esh. Ran to Kroger and then I had a sugar crash which my husband very graciously surfed on through and calmed me down by putting me to bed and reading Lord of the Rings to me.
This is why people have kids. So they don't run around like chickens with their heads cut off every holiday!!! :-) Go
