Easter 2011

Yes, you read that right, Easter. But wasn't it? Yeah, it was. But I just NOW got my camera unloaded and here I go down the list of pictures and posts. I asked if you were ready. :)

Well Easter was a time for bunny cakes, candy filled eggs, ham, potato salad, dresses and egg hunts. Well. Our Easter was supposed to be like all the others. Wake up, go to church, head to grandmothers house, lunch, egg hunt, home. Not this year. At THE last minute, and I mean the LAST minute. I was informed by my lovely cousin that guess what?! No Easter at gma's this year. WAIT?! WHAT?! She then promptly text me and said: "No food, nothing,what are we all going to do? Stand around and STARE at one another!?"

How sad. I know my gma is getting older and its getting harder for her, which in understandable. But I could've thrown in some eggs and a dessert and a side. But she just didn't want all of the noise. I love her so very much, if it weren't for her, I probably would have no care for baking. GASP! But to be honest, she is becoming more and more forgetful. Her mother had alhezheimers, so I wouldn't discount that, that is what's happening. Anyways.

OK. Plan B. Wait, what is Plan B? We have never had a plan b. I don't even know where to begin. Yes, I do. CHURCH! So, we headed to church on a Saturday night and if I were an emotional person, I would have balled my eyes out like a baby. NOT saying I did, because I didn't, just saying to say, ya know? That was my 3 year old, oh wait she was in the daycare area.... hmm.

Then on Easter Sunday, headed back to church to work the children's ministries. Well it dawned at me as we were leaving church. What is for lunch? Well I know what wasn't for lunch. Ham. Deviled eggs. Potato Salad. Yeast Rolls. Green Beans. Apple rings. Spaghetti and Cheese! Man, im getting hungry. you?

At the wally world, I called hubby. Yo hubby! Whats say we throw together an Easter dinner and invite anyone who isn't already taken? OK! He said, your crazy, too last minute, but I would like a ham. HA.

So, that is what we did. I called my family members who were close by, invited them over and cooked my bunny tail off. And here are the pictures to show! :) Sorry about my long story, I try to be humorous, but it isn't working today. Enjoy the pictures. Oh, quick tragic story. Do you know those little chicks that chirp non stop while they are in your hand? Yeah, me and my sister had one when we were younger, dad got tired of them, and tossed them out the window! So, my kids had those is their buckets, and yeah, let's just say that they are now chew toys of the dogs! ;) Thanks dad for the heads up about parenting.

P.S. Please ignore the dirty kids, I was cooking, can't do it all! ;)
P.S.S. Also, the rabid looking monsters in pjs, those are mine. We just woke up, what can I say. :)

HA! No easter bunnies here, aliens. That's how we roll.

She loves her Uncle Noodle!

My handsome little brother!
