I had big plans- A fancy breakfast for the family, an Easter picture with fresh, spring outfits, fun baskets, an uplifting message about Christ's sacrifice, an exciting Easter egg hunt, etc. However, (do to my procrastination and lack of planning) it was absolute chaos.
Breakfast of sourdough pancakes didn't quite pan out as I forgot to grow my starter the night before, frozen quiche it was!
Running off to church meetings, I left Thom in charge of getting Brad dressed in is new, spring outfit. Thankfully, he took a picture (above) before leaving for church because this is the only picture we have before Brad destroyed his first tie with chocolate covered pretzels.
Church was but a little tricky to stay focused as poor Brad was exhausted and squirmy, so I spent the majority of the service outside on the grass.
When we made it home, I REALLY wanted to do this cute picture I saw on Pinterest. Brad would have none of it, and honestly I don't blame him! I guess I'll hang on to this picture for ransom someday.
You can kind of see it, but Brad is BAWLING in this picture. BAWLING! I'm such a mean mama, but I didn't want those stupid ears to be bought in vain. -Sigh, I know...stupid! Poor little thing.
We then took tired Brad to a family party where tears dripped from his chin during the Easter egg hunt. Thanks to Thom's camera skills, we at least snapped one shot of Brad picking up an egg not crying.

At least after all the many hurdles yesterday, we came away with a few pictures. Hopefully, they will be reminders to not push a one-year-old to enjoy MY holiday celebration, and a reminder to myself to LET IT GO!
