This is Easter Grumpies!!!!
And THIS is Happy Bunny. Would you LOOK at this kid? He was nothing but smiles and sweetness all day!
It all started out so well. Maggie woke up chipper, and was pleased as punch to see her basket and check out its contents. Yeah, it was just Maggie and I, Jer and Max were snoozing away. I mean really, I only made a basket for Max to make it known that there are TWO children. Not like he wanted it, or even ever saw it. But you know, I like to be equal with the kids.
Happily showing her basket goodness. It wasn't long after this that she discovered there was CANDY inside the eggs. This girl LERVES her some candy. She'd eat it for breakfast everyday if I'd let her. On this EAster, I did let her. She had jellybeans and peanut butter m&m's. Don't be jealous of my parenting skills. However, I should have known we were in for a doozy when she started yelling "NO DRESS" and running away. Every time I mentioned the dress, or showed it to her, she hit it and yelled again, "NO DRESS." What the? I don't have a daughter that doesn't love her dresses. She usually picks them out, and gets excited the frillyer it is. So, something was definitely off. I of course wrestled her into the dress, all the while she cried and fought. I got the tights on, the panty cover, the shoes, the hair done, but it was a battle. So not used to this.
We managed to get ONE smiling picture of her, only after I stood off to the side acting like a total retard.
This picture is indicative of the rest of the day. Holding to me for her dear life, looking concerned and bothered. At least I look decent. I had to sing in church that day, AND teach Relief Society. What did I sing? Well, I sang His Hands. This marks the TWENTIETH year of me singing that song. I know, sort of creepy huh? I'm pretty sure I'll be 60 and this ward will be calling me and requesting that song. Anyway....
Really? Can you even stand it? The adorableness of this whole ensemble and the look ofher walking in was just too much to take. But, church was nightmarish. She insisted on being with Dixie, or just yelling at me, or running up to try and get on the stand, or crying. I spent a good amount of time in the hall with her. Happy Easter, how bout that spiritual feeding? UGH!
After Sacrament Meeting I wanted to at least get a couple of pics with the kids together. This special trio of shots is what we got. That's ALL we got.
please Maggie, just let me hold you
Really Mom? I'm trying to be nice, she won't sit with me.
Max is so trying to do his part. And this my friends is one GRUMPY princess.
This is how we had to leave church that day. That is one Easter gone awry. Here's for hoping that NEXT Easter brings hoppyer (oh really, I slay myself, my cleverness is legendary) princesses and just as sweet bunnies.
Hope your Easter was grand!
Frownie faces and bunny ears,
