Since 3 of our kids are gone every other weekend and every other holiday, we have to be flexible and roll with the punches with our holiday routines and traditions. We like to occasionally arrange sleepovers at grandparents’ houses so the other kids get to feel special and go somewhere too.
Something strange and unusual happened this year. We had only one child at home to spend Easter Sunday with! This was a first, and I’m sure it will be the last time we ever have just one child on a holiday! Colton loved shaking and opening his jelly-bean filled Easter eggs. He loved his bunny-shaped marshmallows and spinning his pinwheel from the Easter Bunny. I think he even enjoyed church. And as you can see, he loves his wiggle car. This child does not sit still long enough for a picture. He is constantly in motion.
It may seem late to be posting Easter pictures,but it wasn’t until last Sunday that I was able to get everyone together for an “Easter Sunday” picture. It’s belated, but it is better late than never!
Although it was absolutely the wrong time of day to snap a picture outside, I had to get everyone with freshly combed hair before church.
It’s not easy sharing kids for holidays. As a mother, I want everyone together for every holiday. It makes me appreciate the chaos, noise and excitement when we do get to celebrate together.
