Easter--Max got a hair cut. I think each time is going to be a little less painful for him, but I am wrong. He screams like we are stabbing him over and over again. It's a horrible experience. But it is done and he looks handsome. Brock and Jesica are visiting AZ this weekend. It's been super fun to hang out with them and to see little baby Addie who isn't a baby anymore. We all hung out til 2:00am last night playing weird games and laughing really hard. We went to my moms house for dinner. Ham and potatoes that were delicious. We walked to the park and the kids played. I'm sure they had fun. I gained about 10 pounds last night so I'm feeling a little swollen and chubby today. haha
I wish I could have taken a better picture of us, but there was some mad shadows on the walls that made my hair look like an 80's nightmare. I mean it was probably really an 80's nightmare hair do today, but the picture made it look even worse.
The Easter Bunny hid eggs with candy all around the family room. They had a lot of fun finding them.
Jim wouldn't let me buy him a pink tie to match. So he is out of place....
Yes, I made this skirt and a matching tie for Max. I ended up ripping it getting into the car on our way home from church. That is what happens when you make the skirt too small.
You know its funny....I still feel guilty about quitting my job. Now that we are moneyless and have to wait a long time to buy things it's really hard. I knew it would be hard and challenging, but I didn't expect it to be this hard. For 8 years I've had a job that paid really well and I've been able to buy pretty much whatever I wanted. I wasn't a shopping fanatic, but if I wanted to buy me some curtains or a new dress or shirt, I could. Things are different now. I have to think 3 times before I buy something. I usually walk away from buying it. However I did manage to sew a skirt for me and make a tie for Max with the scraps all for $4.99+ a zipper. I only needed 1 yard. A lot of people think I'm stupid for quitting my job and they don't understand why I would quit a job that paid me as much as it did. No matter what I say they will not understand. Yes, I hated my job, really hated my job. BUT, being home with my kids and being able to teach them, play with them and have them know I'll be home with them is so great. Was it nice to have the break, yes. But, I think that certain events happened so that I could quit my job. Praying about it and making the decision to just quit just felt right. Do I feel bad that I put my family in a different tax bracket? YES, every day. Hopefully one day I will be able to get over that, but it's a hard feeling to overcome. Maybe it was a stupid decision, but it was mine (and Jims) and we have to live with it. I'm sure it was right, but who knows.
