Easter Fail

we had a wonderful Easter.
kids loved their Easter baskets
.....with dollar store bad mitten sets
(seriously....I thought they would break after 2 minutes...but they're holding up nicely, they might make it through a whole week!  So worth the $2 I spent on 2 sets...I would have maybe even shelled out $4 for the quality!)

and then off the church, it was a beautiful morning at church
...not that I got to attend either service
doing check-in station beginning of 1st service
...then toddlers the rest of 1st service
....then 3's & 4's 2nd service...with my sweet niece in my class...that was special!
...but I've heard Pastor Stephen preached it yesterday!
I will be listening to the podcast today.


in-between the two services we had a Celebration Cafe with brunch
and then 3 baby dedications
and 17 baptisms...17!!
and one of those 17 was our boy child!
and my Beau had the privileged to baptism him
what a special morning...
& both Beau and I sort of kind-of went into mini little ugly cry's
     ...but not too bad, we recovered and all was well!



then after church home to our first Easter Egg hunt in a back yard!
seriously...
the girl child is 11
& it's her first egg hunt in a grassy back yard!
and first egg hunt with their cousin(s)...
...baby Kate (6 months) didn't really look for eggs,
she walked around with grandpa...
while grandpa tried to remember where the Easter bunny hid the eggs!
...blog note...
2 eggs are still uncounted for...
one plastic...
and one real!  Beau have fun mowing!

after the egg hunt onto the Easter 'dinner'
the kids were confused by my calling it dinner...not lunch...
but it was 3 when we ate, and it was the only meal I was making...
so I'm sticking by calling it dinner...
we had a yummy Pomegranate Ham (BITNF-blog in the near future)
Au Gratin Potatoes (BITNF), roasted asparagus, salad, deviled eggs, fruit & rolls...

it was a wonderful Easter...
yet I failed...
failed big time...
Big ol' F!

I took no pictures...
zero...nada. zilch...
not one picture did I take all day long!

no picture of the Easter Baskets
no picture of the baptism (others took pictures and I'll get copies!)

no pictures of the Easter dinner
and the worst...
no picture of my family all dressed up!

Oh no Kiera! That's awful! I'm so sorry! I've done it before and you get over it, but that really stinks! (And I'm glad you will get baptism pics from others because no one will get over that one!) ;)
