Easter


I was sick Easter weekend. I got the nasty stomach bug that has been going around and Friday night I started having a stomach ache. Well, needless to say, I didn't sleep a wink and spent the next 16 hours feeling terrible. So I missed out on the egg hunt, dinner, and dyeing Easter eggs. But the worst part, is that Aaron and I didn't get our boys anything for Easter, we didn't take a picture of our 3 boys together dressed up or getting their gifts from grandma. I hate it!!! The only thing I can do is recreate the photo that we should have taken on Easter with our boys. And it was Zac's first Easter! (This photo was taken Easter 2007)

Aaron and his mom taught the preschool class in church on that Sunday, so Zac stayed home with me, because he had been sick too and wouldn't have anyone to watch him at church because everyone in our family was teaching. After church was over Aaron came home while Alex and Parker went to Kristen's. Kristen took great pictures of them dyeing eggs and in the front yard with their cousins, but Zac wasn't there because I was still sick and we didn't go to their house......I am telling you this is eating me up. I am so sad about it. It was a day that is now over and even though we are still getting them something for Easter, we can never get that day back.

On the flipside, the boys did have a great weekend. Aaron loaded them up Saturday and they got to grandma's by 1:30 and spent the day hunting eggs, playing with Kennady and Mya, eating tons of candy and having a great time. Sunday I ironed their Easter shirts and Aaron took them to church to learn about what a special day Eastser is. Then they had Pizza for lunch and went to aunt Kristen's and uncle Joe's house to decorate easter eggs. I am glad that they had a good time and it didn't affect them that I was ill. I do think that they noticed we didn't have anything for them, but they didn't even say anything to us about it. Poor Zac didn't even get in a picture with anyone on Easter. I am going to go cry now.........
