We had a wonderful weekend and we hope you did also. Please enjoy our Celebration in pictures.
Saturday we decorated Easter Eggs
and attended The Easter Vigil Mass
Alexa lasted the whole three hours!
The Easter Bunny came and hid eggs in the backyard for Alexa to find
The Easter Bunny also left Alexa and Jacob baskets full of books and treats. Alexa got lots of Sesame Street books, bubbles, a bouncy ball and a book about Our Blessed Mother; Jacob received a book for school, candy, a bag of Funyuns, an iTunes gift card and a St. Sebastian medal and prayer card. St Sebastian is the Patron Saint of Athletes.
We celebrated the day at my Mom and Dad's house with my brother and his kids, my niece's mommy, my Aunt, and all my cousin's and their children.
Mom and Dad surprised Jim and I with a cake for our 18th Wedding Anniversary which is tomorrow.
My Mom created this amazing cake top that brought us back to that wonderful day. As you can see it's black and white, our wedding colors, we had Teddy Bears at the guest book table, and sitting on the table is a top hat. Our favors were candy filled top hats. I love the little gifts from God she added with pictures of Jacob and Alexa. The cake was chocolate with raspberry and was decorated just as our wedding cake was. Mom and Dad even served the same champagne we had at our wedding.They topped it off by collecting Anniversary cards from many of our friends and family as a surprise. It was so nice reading the wonderful notes from people who have been a part of our lives for so long, we even received a few blasts from the past which were so fun to read.
I hope you had an amazing day and you continue to celebrate the Resurrection of our Lord.
Until next time,
