Easter Sunday 2014

Since Maggie's due date was April 16 (according to the midwife) and April 21 (according to my watch) I didn't make Easter plans.  I had no idea when Maggie would arrive, or if I'd be feeling up to doing anything.

I bought Evie an Easter dress, and one for Maggie just incase.  I bought and arranged Easter baskets for both girls.  I'm glad I did!

I didn't make it to Mass on Palm Sunday.  And had it not been Easter Sunday I probably would have skipped this Sunday too, but it's the most important liturgical celebration of the year and I didn't have enough reason to miss it.

Some how our family of four was up, fed, showered, dressed, and out the door smack in the middle of the 15 minute departure window.  Gold star to us.

We arrived at church just in time to catch our favorite priest outside.  He blessed Maggie and told us he was celebrating one of the auxiliary Masses in the chapel.  Score!  A chapel full of 150 people instead of the church or parish hall full of hundreds sounded perfect for our little family.

Evie was so well behaved and Maggie didn't make a peep.  I am so thankful we decided to go and celebrate Easter Mass.  God rewarded our efforts of taking a 12 day old and 2.5 year old to Easter Sunday Mass.

After, we went to a friend's house for a brunch party. Her husband came into the Church the night before.  They had a baby boy the day before Maggie was born, so it was so great to celebrate our new arrivals together!

Then it was on to my grandparent's house for our traditional Easter basket hunt and lunch.  Evie had a little mini egg hunt just for her.


And my dad had Maggie duty so Eric and I could spend time looking for eggs and our basket with Evie.


After all the Easter morning fun was had, our little family went home to take naps.  We finished up Easter Sunday with dinner at Waffle House in our pajamas!!!
