Easter Happiness

Happy Easter everyone! I wonder how you spent your Holy Week.

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.

so cute!

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.

I wonder how you spent your Easter.  I hope it was just as blessed as mine.

  1. Looks like you had a fun and happy Easter Sunday with the family. You're nephew's really cute. I like that you named the rabbit Peter Cottontail. I do miss the Easter celebrations back home.
