We really had a most wonderful celebration of the Resurrection Day on Sunday... we had combined our traditional Easter feast with Phoebe's birthday party, so Sunday itself was really quiet. Which honestly, was such a blessing. It felt like we were really able to focus on the meaning of the Day, without distraction or exhaustion. It's been such a wildly busy month, that we really did just need a true Sabbath.
We did not, however, pass up the opportunity to take some fun Easter pictures. I even wore a dress, even though it was a mighty bit frigid that morning, simply because I could. (Last year, Easter dressing was not a fun experience, having been only 3 weeks postpartum.) For your viewing enjoyment:
By the time we'd all had a good, long nap, the weather had warmed up enough for us to take Phoebe for a stroll in her new Radio Flyer wagon (thank you so much, Mops and Pops!). Phoebe was in the Easter bunny spirit, and wore her bunny ears the entire time, which is nothing short of a miracle.
Easter was a mighty fine day... He is Risen Indeed!
