I hadn't made any decisions about whether or not I was going to post during Holy Week, not post during Holy Week, or what. Then I got some sort of weird virus-y thing that left me congested and running a fever(?) and run down this week.
Anyway, I'm back up and running, just in time to celebrate! I'm feeling particularly joyful and festive today, even though yesterday I was feeling somewhat melancholy about not going to the Easter Vigil for the first time in a looong time. Last night, though, the joy filled me, even as He passed from death to Life.
He is risen, indeed! Alleluia!
Meanwhile, after Clare was in bed, we filled the house with Easter!
|My first banner|
|First Easter Basket|
|Noah's Ark from Grandma|
And this morning, we celebrated.
And celebrated some more at Mass. We decided to intentionally hit the outdoor overflow Mass at our parish, and it was a beautiful day to sing joyfully to the Lord.
|Are we done yet?|
|Grainy iPic of my shoes, 'cause the full-length shots make my knee-length dress look like the longest tea-length dress ev-er.|
|Told ya so|
And since I'm linking with Grace, the deets:
Dress: Express (from a million years ago), Shoes Rampage (also very old), Cardi not pictured: Old Navy; Clare's dress: gift
Now, we're doing a bit of relaxing before Charles' parents come for dinner!
Happy, Happy, Joyful, Blessed Easter! Alleluia!
