Happy Easter.

Ahhh, Decorating eggs.
The kids love it. Me? No lovey.
Infact, I pretty much hate it.

If you take a really good look at the picture, you can see that Tony isn’t that into it, either. At least I PRETEND I’m having fun, Tony’s a little more “out there” with his hatred.
Ethan was the only one straight up LOVING it. Andrew had fun, but he’s at that age where he can’t let on that he’s enjoying it too much, because, he’s 12 and that means he’s supposed to be “too cool” for stuff like that.
Easter has always been a holiday that I love.
Not because of the candy, or the eggs, or the stupid bunny.
Because of the message of the resurrection of Christ.
It’s a message of amazing love, sacrifice and mostly, one of great hope.
I told my dad I would attend his Easter service today. Now, I’m having second thoughts. I remember when I was one of the church going people, I’d smirk at the people who’d only come to church on Christmas and Easter, never imagined I’d be one of “those people.”
I’ll probably go, for my dad’s sake. I don’t want to deal with him being upset and hurt because I didn’t show up.
I just hope Gabby doesn’t rip one during his sermon.

    Happy Easter Y. That pic of Ethan has me in rolling, that is some face. I leave the egg doing to my husband every year, it’s really not my thing. I am better at being proud of them when they are all done. :)

    Cae went to her first Anglican service today with Grandma.
    Mommy = no steppy into the churchy
    I love the look on Tony’s face, he looks asleep! And Ethan? TOO CUTE.
    And I remember sitting around the table doing eggs with my parents, so much fun. Except I’d never end up emptying the eggs entirely, and I’d keep them until they stunk out the house.:D
    Happy Easter Yvonne :)

    We didn’t even dye any eggs this year. I don’t like the mess, and the kids don’t know any different.
    I wish my son was as enthusiastic as Ethan! And hey, at least your husband is beside the kids. I’d have to yell for like an hour to even get mine out of the computer chair…or to even turn around!

    Fantastic job on the eggs, whoever did them, they are GORGEOUS. Love the colors.

    I could never get into the egg decorating thing. I always think, “Alright, now that the egg is multicolored and sparkly, it should be sweet like candy inside.”
    But guess what? No candy. Still egg. Looks like candy. Tastes like egg.
    I can’t take that kind of deception.

    I had a doctors appointment on Friday so I excitedly told the kids that they get to decorate eggs with their sitter. They were sooo excited! The sitter didn’t look so pleased but what could she say? She’s the babysitter! She has to do what I say! I think I’ll make this a yearly ritual! Lol
    And Just for the record I went to church Saturday night to our Easter Drama, Sunday morning AND Sunday evening! LOl I love going to church. And y you are so right. There is something so beautiful about the whole story. It’s just the bestest Sunday to be in church!
