Hello y'all. I hope everyone had a great weekend. Ours was fun and of course busy. The girls went to our neighborhood Easter Egg Hunt on Saturday. It rained...and I mean RAIN!!! It was unbelievable. The younger kids were moved inside but they still had the older kids hunt their eggs in the rain. (Not too sure I agree with that decision...I felt like they should have split the time or something besides having all the kids out in the cold, rainy weather)....Anyway...it was fun.
I am really looking forward to the upcoming long weekend. The kids and hubby are off Good Friday so it will be extra nice to have another day together. This week is such an important week for us as we prepare for our Easter celebration. Does your family have any traditions at Easter? We will dye and decorate our eggs on Friday, then have a fun egg hunt of our own Easter morning. Since we don't live near family, we will have a small yet nice family dinner (I don't dare say quiet haha!) on Easter. What do y'all have for Easter dinner?
Our parish does something I absolutely love for Easter Mass. It is held outside in the garden. It is such a moving service. It is also family friendly which is a huge bonus. Everyone brings lawn chairs and blankets and sprawls out to listen to God's word. Attending church with little ones is a difficult feat. We normally put our 2 year old in the nursery. I don't believe they have the nursery this week for Holy Thursday or Good Friday so we will do our best. Do you find it difficult to go to church with your children? What do you do? Any ideas for helping little ones learn to stay quiet in church?
Well whatever traditions you and your family have for Easter, I hope that you enjoy them. If you don't already have some maybe you will make them. I hope you all have a very Blessed Easter! I'll see you back next week.
