Easter 2011 will go down in the books as the most relaxing and enjoyable Easter ever.
Perhaps it was so enjoyable because it was not my plan.
You see AJ got sick on Friday night. It seemed like just allergies, so she spent Saturday doing her normal thing. By Saturday at 7pm it was evident the child was sick.
High fever, coughing till she gagged, etc.
Clearly she could not go to church Sunday morning. So Aaron and I tossed back and forth trying to decide what to do.
Should we stay or should we go?
Half of us or none of us?
We decided it was more important to spend the day as a family, so we stayed home.
Everyone went ahead and got dressed in their Easter clothes and we went out and found all the eggs the Easter Bunny left. After the baskets were finally found, we watched Veggie Tales Easter Movie while playing with all the new toys.
We even got to enjoy a quiet time in the afternoon where the twins napped, the bigs rested, Aaron tinkered on his mower, and I scrapbooked. All while it POURED rain all day long.
It was the best.
The day was topped off with Easter dinner down the street at my parents house. YUMMY!
