With the all the extended family in for my sisters wedding yesterday and the fact that I can barely move Easter was very simple this year. We didn't dye eggs or hide eggs. Steve had some Lego's he bought for the kids a few month ago. Nana and Papa McClellan got the kids chocolate bunnies which they loved. Lunch at my parents' house consisted of all the left over food from the wedding reception.
The kids did a great job singing in Sacrament meeting today.
As soon as baby #3 makes an appearance I am taking 6 weeks off from my stake calling. When Evan was less than a week old I was offended when one for the missionaries asked my why I hadn't come back to Church right away like other mothers. Rude! Well he got a very detailed description of vaginal tears and leaky boobs. Don't ask if you don't want the truth....that's what I say.
Steve let me know this weekend that work is going to be super busy. Starting Monday for the next several months everyone has to work 60 hours a week. If they don't finish during the week they have to come in on weekends. The comment people made at work was, "well...better go home and say goodbye to the family....not going to see them for a while." Feast of famine.
Busy building legos.
It looks like I am the only person who didn't want Lego's for Easter. Steve was so thoughtful. He remembered that I wanted some Peter Rabbit dishes, as that is one of my favorite children stories. We saw these a few months ago at Pottery Barn Kids and I was hoping they would go on sale after Easter. Fortunately, Steve snatched some up because they sold out before Easter even came.
The night before the wedding there was a big dinner for the two families. Evan was tired and overstimulated he hit his breaking point. He cried so hard he threw up all over the car in the two blocks it took us to drive home from my parents house. I came home cleaned him up and put him to bed at 5:30 pm. He and I stayed home. Everyone else had a great time at the dinner.
Our neighbor was going to babysit the kids for us while we were inside the temple sealing. About ten minutes before we were to leave she passed out and we had to improvise. Stuff comes up ...it's part of life.
Trying to stay out of trouble.
We are so happy for them!
Made it to 38 weeks....almost done being pregnant.
Someone is getting the look from my mom...haha!
We terribly missed Gillian who is down in Nicaragua finishing the last bit of her mission.
The reception was up at the UCLA institute building.
Already burned out. We stopped off at the reception before it started to get lunch and cake. Then it was time to go. After an hour of being on my feet I get terrible swelling and am very uncomfortable so I knew we weren't going to last long.
