We had a triumphantly adorable Easter, so I thought I'd try one of these what I wore link-ups to share. And hey, today there are THREE! Thanks to Camp Patton, The Practicing Catholic, and Fine Linen and Purple for hosting.
First, the what I wore part:
|Here's the whole gang after Mass at the Old Mission.|
|Girls' dresses: Orient Expressed|
sweaters: Old Navy
|Boys' shirts and ties: Gymboree|
Blazers & Khakis: Gap
|Flexi hair clip: lilla rose|
(Reader Heather sent me one to try out,
stay tuned for more details and a giveaway,
or go here for more information)
|Pearls: My grandmother|
We figured we wouldn't go to the Vigil, since we didn't know any of the Catechumens or Candidates this year, and it's a late night. But Jack and Betty weren't having it. Jack was shocked, SHOCKED when we suggested that perhaps he only wanted to go for the treats afterwards, and insisted that he loved the pagentry and the immersion baptisms. So off we went. And had a lovely time.
The next morning began bright and early. The Easter Bunny stopped by:
|Leaving Easter baskets for all.|
|This is how excited Anita is about getting a new toothbrush.|
|He changed our Lenten Sacrifice Beans into Jelly Beans!|
We had an Easter Egg Hunt in the back yard:
|Blue Easter drool: cute or gross? You decide.|
|The "Golden Egg" has a dollar in it.|
Jack went out to the front yard and changed the sign on the cross he made as his quiet afternoon project on Good Friday:
Later, we hosted some friends for a really wonderful Easter dinner.
|My Mom and I combined forces on a |
Southern ham dinner with all the fixin's.
|And our guests brought desserts!|
May all your Easter days be blessed. Keep celebrating!
