Laughing, Weeping, Living

Life happens. You laugh about it or cry about it, sometimes both.

Christ is Risen, Alleluia!

Happy Easter, everyone! The “What I Wore Sunday” link up is on for tomorrow, so check back then for my Easter outfit.

We did do an Easter egg hunt with Stephen this morning since he’s too little for a whole basket full of candy. I just bought some plastic eggs and filled them with jelly beans and little chocolate bunnies, a perfect treat for a little toddler.

I "hid" the eggs around the living room.

Stephen looked for them with a little bit of prompting from mom and dad.

He found an egg!

One egg had a cool rubbery chick. If you shake it hard, it lights up.

We tried one of the chocolate bunnies. He liked it!

Then we made breakfast and got dressed and went to mass. We went to one of the parish’s outdoor masses so we wouldn’t have to worry about arriving an hour early just to get butt space in a pew at the church. It was an adventure that I will tell you about tomorrow.

P.S. Last night’s Easter Vigil was pretty darn good, but I will just say in all charity that I have heard the Exsultet sung more proficiently. The deacon gets credit for effort and I’m sure he practiced very hard, but the Exsultet is a strenuous chant and it does demand a lot from the singer. In many other ways the liturgy was truly beautiful.
