Wordful Wednesday: Every Year, Y’all

Every year I say it. I deem it so. I put it out into the universe and the universe smacks my face, says “Girl, please,” and turns me in the opposite direction. Holidays hate me. Yet, I try to love them so very hard. Every year, y’all. Every year.

Easter came around thisĀ  year and I was going to dye eggs with the girls andĀ have an egg hunt. We were going to make baskets and I was going to let them actually eat some of the jelly beans they found. Note to self: buy things when you think of them because Target is not open on Easter.

Needless to say, SuperFantastic came to the rescue.

They dyed eggs.

The oldest girl claims she’s keeping this one forever, it’s so beautiful. I had to let her know it’ll stink long before then, refrigerated or not.

They made chocolate birds’ nests.

And one of them even cussed. On purpose. Look at his face. You know he’s saying all sorts of bad things about his teachers in his head. LOOK AT HIS FACE. The disgust is almost more than I can bear (which is why I can’t stop looking at it and laughing hysterically because YOU BASTARDS, LOOK WHAT YOU’VE DONE TO ME).

One year, y’all, one year. One year I’ll acknowledge every holiday the way it deserves. One year. I did make Easter dinner at least: ham, baked chicken, fried chicken, potato salad, greens, and macaroni and cheese. Maybe that counts for something.

It’s April. I’m sure I can get something festive together for Memorial Day.

  1. Love it. Hey you did better than me. I did not cook, prepare any baskets or buy outfits. Now that’s a shame.

  2. SO many thoughts…
    1. THAT FACE!
    2. You made ham, baked chicken AND fried chicken! I think that certainly defines the concept of “the way it deserves”. I was so tired from all that damned church singing that I didn’t cook for three days.
    3. Once, in high school, my best friend Sharon insisted on keeping a hard boiled Easter egg for TWO YEARS. Here’s the deal – the egg is fine as long as it is in it’s shell. But if you accidentally break it…don’t even go there.

  3. You did two more things than I did, color eggs and make birds nest. I did, however, make it to Target on Saturday a.m. and since the pickin’s were lame, my kids Easter baskets were lame as well. Oh well, we try!

    I wish I could reach right through this screen and squeeze those cheeks! He’s sooooooo cute!

  4. You ROCKED it – especially that awesome dinner. ;) I’d want to keep that awesomely decorated egg forever, too! :)

  5. OMG this picture of your son is too damn funny.
    oh he looks so pissed off but if you dressed me like that and I had no say in it then I’d probably look the same.
    When he is 21 he will laugh at this. Right now be thankfuly he’s smaller than you. :-)

  6. OMG. I think this is possibly the cutest picture EVER in the history of pictures. The bunny suit and look on his face…..awesome.

  7. The last picture just did me in. I’m at my desk cracking up!!! That face… that’s how you look when you have beef!!! It’s on!

  8. My goodness! I’m over here cracking up and snorting! Don’t you ever let them put that on him again! Those were his words, not mine. No, but really….did he ever even crack a half smile?

  9. Ahahahah that look on his face is priceless!!!

  10. Highly energetic post, I loved that bit. Will there be
    a part 2?

  11. Undeniably consider that that you stated. Your favourite justification appeared to be at the internet
    the simplest factor to keep in mind of. I say to you, I certainly get irked whilst people consider issues that
    they plainly do not recognize about. You controlled to hit the nail upon the highest and
    defined out the whole thing with no need side effect
    , people can take a signal. Will likely be again to get more.
    Thank you
