Mine was spent in prayer, visiting churches, praying the Stations of the Cross, the Sorrowful Mysteries, going to confession and going to a lovely Easter Vigil and Easter Mass late last night. I regret not having prayed more though and I plan to visit more churches and to pray more next year, with God's bountiful blessings.
Easter morning was spent cooking. I cooked fried chicken and spaghetti for a simple Easter lunch and we had sliced water melon for dessert. It was a simple, yet special meal because my parents were here and my sister's family too.
I hid some Easter eggs for my nephew to find. At the last moment, I brought out the book I bought for the occasion.
|I spotted this book after I bought the bunny below. I noticed that it was about Easter and the color of the rabbit was the exact color of the bunny I bought. I just had to buy the book for Emilio.|
|I named him Peter Cottontail, just like the rabbit character in the book. I thought that would help Emilio relate the character in the book to the live bunny.|
|Here's Emilio with his new book.|
And because we just couldn't get enough of Emilio, we decided to follow them to the mall later in the afternoon. We had ramen for dinner.
|Emilio is always so happy when I'm around.|
|Oh and that's my son who is a proud Michael Jackson fan. He's showing off MJ's new record cover which he made into his cellphone wallpaper.|
We had these yummy creme puffs for dessert.
|I just can't get enough of them. Not too sweet but sweet enough to make you crave. I was just scared that gaining more weight would make it harder for me to conceive so I didn't finish everything.|
