So the title here is a little misleading because I actually took these pictures of the kiddos dressed up on Saturday evening. Our church here has Saturday evening mass at 5pm. So I thought it would be great to go to the vigil so we could be lazy and relax Easter morning. Just an fyi, Easter vigil is pretty much the loooooongest mass of the year, so we had steeled ourselves to having restless littles. Brian asked me about 20 times what time mass was, and I (maybe a little too smartly) answered him that it was the same as always, of course! Saturday mass is at 5pm, end of story. Except when we arrived at church, the parking lot was empty, and the church marquee read loud and clear that Easter vigil was NOT in fact at 5, but at 7:30. Oy. We turned right back around, and decided that early morning mass would be better than keeping sleepy cranky littles awake past bedtime for the longest mass of the year.
It worked out for the best because these cuties woke up at the crack of dawn. Earlier than the crack, actually. So we all watched an Easter sunrise, slugged back a cup of coffee, and got to mass. The littles were ohhhed and ahhhed over for their darling outfits sent by my parents. I'm pretty biased, but there's nothing much sweeter than my kiddos in their Easter best.
