Our Easter morning didn't get a bright welcome like we had wished for. We had to submit to the snow and give up the first egg hunt. This was our first big snow all winter and it actually waited until early spring to arrive and Easter day no less.
I put Kaitlyn's Easter outfit on her and let her go at her Easter basket. She got necklaces, bracelets, a bunny, little Cinderella and Prince Charming dolls and two books. I also bought her magnet letters, but gave them to her the day before. She spent a lot of time playing with Prince Charming. I told Neal it was just like a girl to prefer Prince Charming.
I had to read her "Who Stole The Cookie From The Cookie Jar?" three times in a row last night. She likes the rhyme and was in a crabby mood so I just kept reading. The whole time she was fingering the little plastic cookies at the bottom of the book.Oh church... The service was geared toward kids so they asked all the parents to bring the children to the front. Out of the six kids present five were 11 months to 2 years. Basically there were a lot of restless young ones at the front. I was feeding Kaitlyn the bread sticks from a Handi Snack and juice to keep her in my lap. The Easter service was a guy doing Charlie (a bunny puppet) And The Chocolate Mystery Sunday. The guy went back and forth from doing magic to playing with the puppet. All the while weaving a story about Jesus. Anyway... after Kaitlyn finished her bread sticks she saw fit to play with the Handi Snack packaging. If you have a toddler who is eating a Handi Snack during church don't give them the wrapper with the sealed cheese pack. Kaitlyn bit the cheese pack causing it to explode all over her hands, face, and top as well as my left hand. I gasped then scooped her up and ran to the bathroom. I wasn't gone long when another mother came in to see if Kaitlyn vomited. After realizing what happened she had a good laugh then started cleaning cheese off Kaitlyn's head. If I wanted my child to get dirty I would have fed her the cheese with the bread sticks. Because of her cheese covered self we never did get a full body picture of her in her Easter outfit.

We might do an egg hunt when Neal gets home seeing how it's not snowing today. I'll have to wash her clothes and try again at getting a good picture. She did keep her big flower/bow on throughout church. Shortly before leaving for church I panicked thinking the bow and headband would spend most of the time on the floor and made her a smaller bow. I never had to resort to the smaller bow.
