Easter 2008

We had a lovely weekend. The weather was perfect. And even though some of us were still a wee bit sick, everything was lots of fun. We are blessed. We are most blessed to be able to celebrate the glory of the Resurrection. We are blessed with a family nearby and a multitude of friends with whom to celebrate and rejoice. We are blessed to have small children who giggle with delight at the thought of what the Easter Bunny might bring. We are blessed!

On Saturday we cooked and cooked and cooked, well I did. Fruit salad, strawberry pie, chocolate pie, pizza dough and pizza! We dyed eggs. We decorated the mantel before bed.

On Sunday we got up and had a little Easter Egg hunt downstairs. We ate way too much candy as well as homemade donuts, smoothies and hard-boiled eggs. Mass was beautiful. We were in the hall (they had simultaneous Masses at 9:30 and 11:30 in the church and the hall) right next to the LIFE TEEN musicians. It was wonderfully joyful and uplifting. I love traditional music, but have a special place in my heart for contemporary Christian praise and worship, especially the Catholic stuff from those like Matt Maher, etc.

We saw friends at church and spent the rest of the day with Brian's parents! The children had so much fun. The day couldn't have been more wonderful!

I give you the rest in photos!

Seems Michael and Nicholas both got the same basket from the Easter bunny. Our bunny forgot to get the baskets and eggs out of the storage area before the movers packed them and put them in permanent storage. Oops!
