We had a really great extended Easter weekend. The kids and Scott got out of school/work at noon on Thursday and didn’t return until yesterday. Oh, yes. The time together was precious – slightly loud – but mostly awesome. Here’s our weekend in ten.
Saturday: Friends in the ‘Hood Hunt. 20 kids, whoa.
Saturday Night: Baking resurrection cookies. They were awesome! John Paul was “beating” the pecans as we read scripture and talked about the Roman guards beating Jesus.
Sunday Morning: 0730 Easter Mass. Yes, we went that early.
Sunday still morning :): Easter egg dying! Scott is the egg pro.
Sunday evening: The “hunt”. This time the eggs had money (spare change), not candy. It got serious.
What a great weekend. It always goes by too quickly for this momma. But, the Easter season has just begun. We still have lots of weeks until “ordinary time” hits again. Can I get an Alleluia?!
