Because in about 2.5 more hours, everyone is going to be SOOOO done with all the Easter pictures online.
And if I don’t write this now, it’ll never get written.
And when I went back to last year’s post, I actually GOT EMBARRASSED about what I shared with the whole dingdong online universe.
(Caution: I’m the only one ridiculous enough to combine assault on an elderly person, a birds and the bees explanation to the kiddo, and *gasp* P00P in one blog post. Shameful. You’ve been warned).
So the assault on an elderly person last year, was my sister enjoying our family tradition of smashing blown eggs on each other’s heads. Except, she chose our 81-year old grandmother instead of any number of perfectly available non-AARP members.
So while my grandma was just as good-natured about it this year (and yes, any pictures of my sister will fall under the category of “14,237 versions of Ju’s hair)…
she had a little something up her sleeve.
Except… they both got a little surprise!
(That is my dad’s hand. He has some crazy commandment about me not posting his face on this here blog. So I’m not technically in violation for posting a limb).
But Grandma came through and Ju ended up with a double whammy.
Don’t feel too bad though - this was pretty tame in comparison to the year Murkatroid filled an egg with frosting…
(hairstyle version #592)
Normally I escape major damage by being the photog.
Brace yourself for a series of me making truly awful faces.
I apologize in advance.
Blame the husband who surprised me once I offloaded the camera.
When I attempted to retaliate… the egg painfully bounced off his noggin.
(God’ll get ya)
But justice prevailed.
And the rest of the photo overkill is to prove that the kiddos were there and cute. And that Itty Bit cannot stop making bang-bang fingers at everything since going shooting with GunDiva.
And as bad as I am in the kitchen? I brought some ingredients to the family dinner and recruited a mustachioed Little Jo to help me with some bacon-wrapped asparagus. Nobody died.
As fun as this was… nothing quite says awesomesauce like y’know… rising from the dead. I am in continual awe that the creator of the universe considers me worth that kind of sacrifice.
I LOVED this quote today:
Upon a life I did not live,
Upon a death I did not die;
Another’s life, another’s death,
I stake my whole eternity.
How was your Easter?
