Your duty is to sanctify yourself. Yes, even you. Who thinks that this task is only for priests and religious? To everyone, without exception, our Lord said: Be ye perfect, as my heavenly Father is perfect. St. Josemaria

Christ is Risen!

Christ is Risen, Alleluia!

Faith in the resurrection of Jesus says that there is a future for every human being; the cry for unending life which is a part of the person is indeed answered... God exists: that is the real message of Easter. Anyone who even begins to grasp what this means also knows what it means to be redeemed. - Pope Benedict XVI April 24, 2011


I hope you had a Blessed Easter Sunday.
We were filled with lots of friends, joy, food, and rain!

Thanks to all of this Rain, we are seeing fruit of it in our Tulips.



Our Easter focus point, Christ is Risen! I filled the kids baskets with great catholic books, a chocolate bunny and one toy. They were over joyed. It was simple and real to them. They honestly think that Jesus came and left those things for them. The Innocents of children!~



Few pictures before church and it was warm and best of all it wasn't raining. Just let!







Milestone for my son, he finally left his tie on for mass!



We had a sit down dinner for 11 adults and 17 children. I had a plan A for the kids to eat outside but we had to go to a plan B and was able to make due.



I believe we had over 150 eggs and many children (young and old) going after them!



Here was the biggest problem, my two would find some and stop to eat and than find some more and stop to eat!

She is on a mission!



We found a bird's nest in the front bushes. My husband had seen a mommy bird bring food to her babies!


Can't forget about cake!

Enjoy your Easter Season!
