Yesterday was busy, today will be busy as well. Egg hunt this morning with packmomma and my SIL/BIL/niece. H It's skipping this, but he's going to vacuum so I'm cool with it. Lunch at my dad's and other BIL/SIL over for dinner. I also have to go grocery shopping in all the running around.
I've been MIA for the past week. We were visiting DH's family for Passover. We had a great trip and the kids got to spend quality time with their cousins, aunts, and uncles.
We've all gotten sick though and it's been a shit show since we've been back. There's been no sleep for a week now due to traveling, illness, etc.. My one goal for this weekend was for everyone to catch up on sleep. Instead, DD1 was up roughly every hour last night starting at midnight because her throat is hurting. I threw in the towel on sleep for myself around 5:30am. I'm coughing too much to sleep and it's way too hot in here. Plus my throat is hurting too. I'm not someone who naps so this is going to be a rough day.

We are hosting the first of two easter dinners today. Turkey is in the oven, and some cleaning is done. We dyed eggs with M. Not a fun experience! Lol! Too much waiting. We also made rice krispie treats, and M loved that. He has been having some awesome tantrums already today. Hoping a nap will fix his attitude for in-laws arrive. Have to go the the store to stock up on beer for tomorrow and grab a little treat for the nieces and nephews. I think I will send H.

The hunt went fine. Nobody got trampled. It was at a public park but I knew it was organized by a church. I didn't expect a pretty graphic telling of the crucifixion and resurrection story and I was a bit put off but DS is too young to care and just went off to play with bubbles and balls. Then we went to the playground across the street. DS is now asleep in the car and DH is in the grocery store while I sit in the car with DS.
A enjoyed dying eggs. I let her drop them into the dye cups, and she didn't want to stop. She also splashed the dye everywhere, but luckily I had put plastic on the floor and had her wear her smock so cleanup was a breeze.
Put her down early for a nap today, since the egg hunt we are going to is during her usual naptime. She's actually sleeping so I have hopes this will go well.
Man what a day. The egg hunt was fun, no graphics like flippinchica had. The one we went to was also put on by a church, but they were very low key. That was kind of shocking in our area, but nice. Once M got the idea he loved getting the eggs.
On the way home I decided I'd drop M dad's you nap there while I went to the first store and to get H. Yeah, he refused to nap. So he didn't nap until 2:30.
Waiting on BIL and SIL to get here for dinner, should be a fun evening.

Thanks for asking ampaints. Turkey dinner #1 successfully done . We had a nice visit, and even though M was still a toddler (aka never know what might set a tantrum) he was great. It was beautiful outside, so we were able to be outside for most of the day. Even DS1 was in great spirits, and his gf joined us for dinner. And the turkey turned out delicious!
