Happy Easter!

Happy Easter!
I love Easter. It is one of my favorite holidays.
I love seeing all the Easter baskets lined up ready for eager children to arrve.
Yes, you counted right there are 9!
I have a friend's daughter for the weekend.
(What's one more...really?!)


This one is for my little Aunnie (8 months)


I hope you all have a wonderful Easter!
My goal was to be on time to church with all 9 kids dressed
(no putting shoes on after we get there) and hair done.
Did I mention we have 8:00 a.m. church?!!

So...I started last night getting ready.
I thought about dressing everyone before they went to bed but just
laid there outfits out instead. I ironed shirts, found matching socks & shoes.
I packed coloring books, bottles, formula got meds ready.
I was feeling pretty good about everything.

Then I went to bathe Sophia & Mark.
Uhh...what happened to our hot water?!!
No worries, I'll just boil pots of water and carry them upstairs so I can bathe them.
I knew I wouln't have time in the morning and I was on a mission!

I was determined to sit together as a family!!
I got everyone up at 6:00 a.m.
We started off with family prayer and then had all the older children
pick a younger child to get dressed.
We were doing pretty good and I was happy :)

We got to church on time...well during the first song.
I am counting that as on time.
Johnny, my specail needs little boy, lasted about
3 minutes before he needed to be taken out.
Aunnie lasted slightly longer...about 5 minutes and
then she was out in the hall too.

Johnny started crying and I couldn't figure out why.
I repositioned him, suctioned him, sang (not really comforting)
I couldn't get him to stop.
So...I loaded Aunnie, Johnny and his wheelchair back up in the car
and came home.
All that effort and I was there for a half hour!!
Oh well...there is always next week :)


I am exhausted!!
So I hope you all had a slightly more relaxing Easter morning than me.
 (It wouldn't be hard!)
 I did fnd out why he was crying...apparently a well meaning mother put shoes on him that were slightly too small. SInce he is unable to speak he was telling me with his cry. I felt terrible. He is getting an extra chocolate in his basket today.
Sorry Johnny!
