Easter Recap

Just a quickie today, guys.

We had a wonderful Easter weekend, but unfortunately the Big Boy was sick.

He may have puked in my lap at Easter dinner.

He spent the majority of the weekend sacked out on a towel-laden beanbag, with a bucket nearby.

Yes, he's asleep clutching a screwdriver.

But despite the illness and the freezing rain on Saturday, we still hunted treat-laden eggs with great joy.

Dude, this is awesome.

And of course no Easter is complete without beautiful girls in sweet pink dresses.

And blue socks.

We even managed to squeeze in a little outdoor time on Sunday.

"Dis da gah-den."

And tho I am oh-so-weary of Tylenol, Ibuprofen, thermometers, puke buckets, boogery noses and clear-liquids-only diets, I still managed to have some wonderful, joyful, beautiful moments, and for that I am grateful.

Someday I'll forget the puke and remember only the sweetness.
Well, I'll probably never forget the puking-at-Easter-dinner, but you get my drift.

How was your weekend?


  1. Oh, dear. I'm sorry to hear the germs are cramping your style again, but glad your Big Boy got to enjoy the festivities all the same. I absolutely love that he fell asleep with screwdriver in hand. Is there any other way to nap?

  2. great easter ..hope you had an equally good time at the inlaws ..hope the big guy feeling much better soon..send him kisses from nana..

  3. Bless your heart and the poor little fellow asleep with his beloved screwdriver! I hope wellness finds your home soon. Glad to hear that you found joy and beauty in your day as they are always there if we just look ya know?!

  4. Ohh dear, poor big boy! We were all sick with colds this weekend, so I feel your pain. I just hope Maeve is 100% next Saturday for her first birthday! That bean bag chair with the towel on it was a great idea btw.

  5. ewwww! we had to cancel christmas one year thanks to a puking child (of mine). Unfortunately, despite our best efforts we still mangaed to spred it to four other family members (with me having to get an injection to stop me throwing up!). gotta know you've got them!
    Hope it all gets better soon :-)

    PS: and yes, we really do have kookaburras and koalas and kangaroos and a lovely assortment of venomous snakes! yay! (okay, so perhaps the snakes aren't so great, but the others are pretty cool!)

  6. SLeeping with a screwdriver! Priceless.

  7. So sorry to hear about the mess at dinner Melissa! The things we deal with as Mom's can be overwhelming. I'm so glad you could enjoy the day despite your little guy being sick. I hope he is feeling better today!

  8. Good luck forgetting the puke in your lap! Hopefully it will be become a "haha" memory...maybe when the germs hit the road. Hope everyone is better soon!

  9. Oh man, that's one way to go about creating family memories. I hope he's feeling better soon (and that you recover from the trauma of being puked on)!
