All together

I'm excited for Easter morning although I'm feeling a little like a backslider.  The reason....I'm not going to church. The kids are all going to come over tomorrow morning and we're going to have a nice Easter brunch.  It was the only time that would work for everyone.  Most everyone had plans in the afternoon./evening and Liz has to be to work at 3:30.  I think the last time we were all together was Christmas and I don't see it happening again until June for my parents' anniversary.   So I'm skipping out on attending church on one of the most religious days of the year.   Yeah, backslider...that's me.

So far the menu is looking like....

Cream of spinach and asparagus soup
Ham
Quiche
Apple Stuffed French Toast
Seafood Salad Canapes
Cheesy Potatoes
Sausage
Various sweets and goodies
Fruit basket

Oh course I have way too many ideas for the sweets, so we'll see what gets done, if anything.   It's not like there won't be anything to eat if I don't make pumpkin muffins or gingerbread cookies or whatever else I've been drooling over lately.    

Yesterday most of the kids pitched in and we managed to clean the little kids room!  YAY!  I think everyone was surprised (including myself) how fast it actually went since the room was totally trashed.  We're talking about bookcases cleared off, drawers of things dumped out, etc.    Now we have to figure out whether to keep or get rid stuff and find a place to find to keep it all.  

This morning I woke up thinking...it's Saturday, not Sunday...I only have to go to the small city twice and I'm so glad I don't have to go to the Dome today!   I'd signed up but stated...If you happen to get a ton of people wanting to work, feel free to take me off the list.  My name wasn't on the final list so I'm assuming someone decided to be nice to me and let me off the hook for the day.  I'm a little sad that I'm missing out on the last event of the season but glad I don't have to stress about leaving and getting things done for tomorrow.  Plus Danielle has been really unhappy at me coming and going so much.  I walked in the door Thurs night to hear...I was just crying because I missed you.  And last night she was begging Tom to do the running so that I could lay down and read to them at bedtime.   :o(    Olivia went with me yesterday afternoon to take Liz to work and pick up some things for tomorrow.    She had the brilliant idea that I could get a job and Allison could watch them while I worked.    She didn't see why it wasn't a good idea, especially for this summer.   I assured her there'd be plenty of time for me to get a job....after I grow up/Sean goes to school.   That we don't need me to work that bad and I'm not willing to be away from home any more then I have to.     Hmmm...I just mentioned this to Tom and he said it's a good idea!   Maybe I'm on the wrong page here, although I don't think I am.

Alright, the cinnamon bread nor the quiches are making themselves.    Guess I need to get off my fanny now.
