We started the day bright and early with a 5:30am power outage that lasted only minutes, but in a house very dependent on fans for background noise to sleep, that means an end to the typical peaceful sleeping. We went to the 7:30am Mass which has become our pattern these days since Judah is still taking that 9am nap like a champ.
We are usually not late but because I put a little extra effort into the children's appearance on this Sunday, we were a couple minutes late. We had to sit on the second row which used to be our custom back before Drew could move around. They were excellent, in my opinion. Judah's a little chatty these days, but it was a sweet tiny baby voice that didn't seem to be distracting enough for removal. I did have to walk him tot he back once to regroup when he started demanding loudly to go outside right at the consecration. Otherwise, I couldn't have asked for better behavior. I even heard the homily. Gasp.
Don't know why Drew felt the need to touch Judah's head. Weirdo!
|Easter baskets consisted of a book, some candy, chocolate for the big kids and a wagon with beach toys for Judah since he can't have Easter chocolate. I have a case if the allergy kid guilt, so I bought him a wagon. Don't judge.|
We took more pictures at home before they all rushed to change clothes.
|Loving the sticks these days. Not so much the picture posing.|
We had breakfast at a neighbor's house and I worked on my lamb cake and some side dishes for dinner. Brian smoked some meat in his newish electric smoker. We had some family friends over for dinner and cake.
|I made the cake dairy free by just substituting the cup of milk for coconut milk, but the fluffiness of the cake severely suffered for it. It was cute though.|
