Well.............let the record show that those plans went straight out the window this year. I'm 0-4. I had the best intentions to do those fun things, but you know what they say....
Saturday, I had every intention to take Jack to the local egg hunt. We arrived and it was PACKED. Like crazy packed. We quickly turned around and went home b/c I wasn't about to tackle a herd of people 8 months pregnant with a wild tot in tow. Thankfully, Jack had a blast just hunting eggs at my parents'!! Mom fail/reality check #1.
I also wanted to dye eggs, but forgot to get the dye kit every.single.time. I went to the store. I'm sure there are other ways to dye eggs but it wasn't happening. Mom fail/reality check #2.
I decided not to even attempt the Easter bunny this year since Santa was a disaster. Mom fail/reality check #3.
Completely forgot to order a cute monogrammed basket and lost the one he had last year. Thank God for Aldi's $2 baskets that Jack loved b/c it had a "leece car" on it. Oh and the EB had every intention to get J some Easter books and a few more items for his basket but didn't. Mom fail/Reality check #4/
Anyways...shockingly we still had a lovely Easter. I guess if you focus on the fact that Jesus is risen the rest doesn't really matter.
Jack and I went to Mass with my mom and barely got a seat. Jack was perfect and the homily just what we needed to hear.

We had a yummy lunch and then headed outside to hunt eggs my nephew hid! Not going to brag, but I found the golden egg...2 years in a row!
|I found it!!|
We played, talked, ate and just had a wonderful time. I cannot believe that next Easter we will be a family of FOUR!!!
