Oh, please ignore the blaaaah-ness of my blog's look. It feels the need for a change, you see. I'm trying to convince it to go yellow, but it seems to like grey. I don't like the grey. We have been bickering about it. And it hates having the header centered....but I HAVE To HAVE IT CENTERED! *Sigh* My blog is having a mood and I'm just trying to make it behave. You know how it is. ;)
Anyway, on to some pictures!
So, on Good Friday I made some hot cross buns. They turned out very yummy. (Be warned, more than half of these pictures center around food and the dinner table. :)
I used my cookie press for the sugar cookies and my sisters had a blast decorating the little suckers.
I also made almond biscotti and they turned out bellisimo!
After all the littlies went off to bed, the elders of the family stayed up and did a bit more cleaning and I got to get the table looking all purdy. We all have a 'special' tea cup for Sundays and special days.
A few of my sisters we going to humor me and come along and I even had those travel mugs ready so we could bring coffee with us.
But God decided otherwise.
It rained. *Sniffe*
You can't really watch a sunrise when it's all wet and grey and drizzly outside.
But oh well. We had coffee and biscotti before anyone else woke up just to make ourselves feel better. ;) It worked.
Then we had a delicious breakfast.
After that we got ourselves all spruced up and went to church.
This is what I wore.
Complete with my 'North and South' hat.
Mass was beautiful.
My sisters and I are essentially the choir at our Church and we were a little nervous because we'd learned a bunch of new music--a whole Mass, in fact--and we wanted it to sound good.
It did. :)
Treskie and I on the way home.
And Katrina. :)
Oh, and Easter basket hunting.
We hide all the Easter baskets and do an egg hunt later on.
Making place cards. :)
He has Risen!
Queen of Heaven, rejoice, alleluia.
For He whom you did merit to bear, alleluia.
Has risen, as he said, alleluia.
Pray for us to God, alleluia.
Rejoice and be glad, O Virgin Mary, alleluia.
For the Lord has truly risen, alleluia.
Did you all have a nice Easter? I hope I didn't scare you all away with all those food-y pictures. *Wink* I know how overwhelming it can be. ;)
That's all for now. God Bless!
Again, I'm sorry for my lack of commenting and blogging. But thank you all for your comments! <3
