Wishing you all a happy Easter!
I hope you all had a glorious Easter Sunday. Our Easter Triduum was filled with many great memories.
Holy Thursday's Mass of the Last Supper is my favorite Mass out of the entire liturgical year. Hands down. It's so beautiful and emotional.
Stan the man has been an alter server for two years, but this year was the first time he served the Holy Thursday mass and he did a magnificent job!
While David had Stan at rehearsal for this Mass, one of the priests had asked David if he would be part of the feet washing reenactment. My guy was a little anxious about it but was honored at the same time.
Good Friday found the kids and I on the road to Kansas City to visit my younger sister and her family! David had to work on Good Friday, and trust me, he didn't mind having the house to himself for a few days ;) I made sure he wouldn't be alone on Easter Sunday. Friends of ours entertained him, for which I was grateful.
We arrived in time for a scrumptious dinner. Miss Clementine's Friday highlight was watching my sister give her dogs a bath! Ha ha!
That night, the older four cousins stayed up late to watch a movie while everyone else hit the sack.
Holy Saturday started out rainy, but the sun came out just in time for the kids to enjoy the day. The younger four colored Easter eggs while the older four prepped for an Easter egg hunt.
Would you believe that we had eight kids up and dressed and at church for the 7:30 am Easter Sunday Mass??
We woke up to rain and slushy snow!
Miss Clementine was fascinated since the last time we received snow, she wasn't quite 3 years old yet.

Our road trip was a success!
And now we anxiously await the arrival of my mom on Wednesday!! She is flying in and staying with us for 10 days :)
