Easter in this domestic church was fabulous! Oh, there was the ten minute span of chaos as everyone finished dressing and rushed out of the house for quick photos before heading to Mass. No matter how much I pre-plan, there is chaos and it's usually about getting the various heads combed. I have come to expect and mostly embrace that span. We returned from Mass to share an Easter luncheon at our home with friends. I love a good meal supplemented with great laughter and stories.
There was candy, new books, new balls and card games, and lots of chocolate. Lucky for us, the Easter Bunny stops in New Orleans first for one of a kind eggs. The older children received wonderful books from the selection at St. Mary's Press.
And the parade of Easter finery:
A Nana-made dress with a Creole style bonnet - that she actually wore!
Don't you love the "just take the picture already" expressions?
And I made them stand there and take another!
The boys hid the eggs for their sisters. Irish Jig picked up about 10 before deciding she was just going to open them and eat.
Finally! A more enthusiastic smile!
Chillin' with St. Francis - Classic Rock's words, not mine!
We hope your day was fabulous, as well!
