Daybook Easter Week 2016

Thinking about:
    Getting back into the routine after Easter break.  Break went well as did Triduum. I opted to not go to Holy Thursday service with the kids but rather went to Adoration when Dr Daddy got home. We did all head into the city to attend Good Friday service and hear Daddy sing. Easter morning was baskets and Mass, and then getting ready for Easter Dinner with friends which was wonderful with a groaning dessert table.

Excited For:
   Elisabeth receiving her First Holy Communion in a few weeks and then heading north to my niece's a couple weeks later. Am of course stressing about some of the details but trying (and so far succeeding) to not lose the joy of all it.

   Mostly jeans and clogs or skirts and boots; still in the 50's-60's most days so have not really pulled out the lighter stuff though we did throughout March gets strangely warm days.

   Pansies and phlox! The crocuses were a bit of a bust as they got eaten as soon as they appeared but fingers stilled crossed for the tulips I have coming up. Am also starting some basil and maybe parsley seeds inside.
My View:

Reading:  Why Now? my sister's newest release!! And O'Pioneers in the category of something I should of read in high school.

Watching: Have been enjoying Fixer Upper which wrapped up their 3rd season this week, and Blindspot back after their long midterm break.

Cooking: Ham, colcannon and other Easter leftovers!

The Kids:

Elisabeth is still crazy about dinosaurs!  Really enjoyed her dinosaur themed party at her gymnastics place earlier this month.

Liam continues to enjoy Pre-K and all that he is learning about letters and numbers.  Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are tops in his world!

Caitlin is as much if not more of a talker than Lisbeth was and delights in making up games for us to play while the bigs are at school. Playing restaurant is her favorite!

  1. Exciting time for Elisabeth! And tulips haven't come up around here yet, either. I didn't plant any in the fall, so I'm determined to plant some this year. :)
