Easter 2014


The kids are settled in bed after a sugar high, and I am actually getting a post done on time!

We had quite the eventful start to our Easter Sunday. Drew was playing in the worship band at church, so he drove himself to church early. I did the mad rush to get us all out the door on time by myself, and was feeling pretty good that we were running on schedule. I decided to take the back roads into church, and about half way there I hear Claire say "Mommy, I don't feel good. My tummy hurts!"

Oh. No.

The back roads are a bit curvy, so I slow down and roll her window down a bit. She tells me she feels better. Whew, thank goodness!

As we're pulling into the church parking lot, I hear her moan, cry, and then proceed to vomit all over herself, her car seat, and the empty seat next to her. She starts to cry and I feel like joining her. I try calling Drew, but since he is practicing with the worship band his phone goes to voicemail. So, I call my parents (who luckily haven't moved yet) who live down the street, and my dad says to bring Claire over. I try to wipe her and her carseat down with wipes, and I proceed to strip her down to her undies as discreetly as possible before putting her back in the car. 

We get to my parents house, and hatch a new plan. My mom, being the best grandma in the world, tells me she'll stay home and play with Claire while the rest of us go to church. Thankfully Claire didn't throw up again and had a blast getting to have some one on one time with grandma. 

After church I picked up Claire and we luckily made it home with no more vomit!

Since my parents are in the process of moving out of their house, while their new one is being built, we offered to host Easter dinner at our house. Hunter went down for nap and I asked Claire if she would like to nap, to which I heard "No, I'm not tired!". Since I thought it was best to monitor her anyways I stuck her on the couch with the kindle while I cleaned. I soon realize it's pretty quiet over on the couch, so I look over to see this:

Sweet little girl fell asleep on the couch, kindle still in hand. So much for not being tired ;)

We had a great time with my parents, brother and grandparents. We let the kids open their easter baskets, ate dinner, and let Claire have a little mini easter egg hunt in the backyard. 

The cheesiest smile ever!



Someday, we will get a picture where everyone smiles! I am determined!! 


Claire got a little bubble gun, that blows the bubbles for you when you pull the trigger. Not only was it a huge hit with her, but Hunter seemed to really enjoy his first bubble experience :) This series of pictures just cracks me up!



Claire insisted on wearing her leggings and pink crocs with her "twirly dress". I even tried to talk her into tights earlier in the day, but she was determined to wear these darn leggings. Oh well...
