easter sunday

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.
 But Fletcher does not enjoy a tucked in shirt, and in this picture above he is untucking.  We went to our friend's home to do an egg hunt and dinner, and my kiddos were in heaven with a grand total of 15 other kids to play with.  Fletcher jumped the egg hunt gun, and got lots of dirty looks from little girls in pretty dresses, and Brian wore bunny ears.  So, perfect Easter, all in all.
And here is Easter from 3 years ago.  If someone could explain to me where the time goes, I'd appreciate it!


  1. Lovely pictures. I like the first one the best - Fletcher has the most amazing natural highlights in his hair! And that story was too funny. Sounds like something I would do. Glad your Easter was lovely. xoxo

  2. I just can't believe that picture of 3 years ago! Their little toes look so sweet and I wanna kiss them! They are growing fast, yes, but they are growing so beautifully! You guys really have gorgeous littles! They light up the camera, and they light up so many lives! Happy Easter to all of you! I love you!

  3. Love these pics, adorable kiddos! :-)

  4. The passage of time becomes so obvious when you have children, doesn't it?

  5. Stop it, they are way too cute!! Love the flashback Easter pic too. They both still have the same sweet, adorable expressions, even if they are missing their baby chub. ;)

  6. Fletcher's hair colour is amazing and I don't blame him for untucking his shirt! Rowan's hair crown and dress are too pretty! Looks like a perfect day.
