Good Friday traditional Dove Nests breakfast:
Then we cleaned and I performed 5 haircuts during the time Jesus hung on the cross...very fitting!
Good Saturday was a laid back day, and we very much felt like we were just waiting for His Resurrection.
Finally, this morning...EASTER!!
After the 8 am Mass...all parental eyes on Mr. Sassy Pants who came down singing the A-Word loudly before 6 am:
Here's the Easter 2017 photo keeper...
My dress was like the 17th one I tried on because NOTHING FITS RIGHT. Ugh. Anyway, I like it, it's hard to find a dress with sleeves and these sleeves are the focal point of the dress (sold out, but this one is similar, though I would never pay that price!)). The boys bright polos all came from Children's Place for super cheap and Maggie's dress was a hand-me-down from cousins. Linking up with Rosie for What I Wore Sunday.
My cutie patooie parents:
My Dad's brother, Tom, entered into eternal life this morning. What a blessing to die on Easter morning. Alleluia!

Mom and Dad...we exist! You wouldn't know it by all the following photos. Easter is a kid's holiday, for sure.
We do a big family Easter basket, this year in a laundry basket, because I'm just not that together to do individual ones.
Their futures are so bright.
The family that glows together grows together.
Real men wear pink.
Look at the bright side.
The illuminated mind makes the whole world sparkle.
Ok, I'm out of neon fluorescent quotes.
Basket Items Included:
Walkie Talkies (Their favorite item and had already been kid tested by another large family we know. Highly recommend!)
The Action Bible Devotional to go along with one of their favorite book from Easter's past, The Action Bible.
A Sports Facts book for the little sports fans.
Chocolates and Cheese balls and Gummy candies and Cookies courtesy of Trader Joe's, Walmart, and Nana :)
We spent the rest of the day hanging out with family members and eating lots! The weather was warm and sunny, all the cousins played outside, and even the doggies in the family got along. Faith, family, friends, food, and fun. The perfect holiday combination. Happy Easter everyone, He is Risen!!!!
