Easter Joy

Our family has a wonderful reminder during Holy Week, and when we are all together on Easter, we follow Jesus' example of the washing of the feet. 

 I love how serious the kids become at this time, especially since we were just at the Holy Thursday Mass to see this. 
 After the washing comes the egg hunt.  We didn't prep Lucy, and she just woke from a nap, so she wasn't quite ready to go, and all the eggs were gone.  Her sweet brothers gave her some and we "hid" them for her.  I think we may have to practice again.
 Golden Jacket was passed from a Nava to an Angsten.  The Easter Pooka was using tape this year.  I have yet to find the golden/alleluia egg.  I just don't think like that when I am hunting eggs.  And I am chasing a young child.
 Our next round of fun came from Pie Face!  My kids were so excited to play, and I wasn't sure how it would go.  I brought it out, and was the first to get hit in the face with the whipped cream, and some of the kids were so excited.  Some boys would have a cookie ready so they wouldn't waste the whipped cream. 

 The roars of laughter are the best.  The expressions are just great!
 And some aimed it juuuust right.
50 days of celebrating!

Alleluia! He Is Risen!

Our family attended the Easter Vigil, and I loved that we were part of such a beautiful Mass!  70 new Catholics got me very weepy!
