Then we got dressed and went to 9am Mass and sang ALLELUIA! ("We can say the A word now, Mom!") and went back home for Easter baskets.
Yeti coffee mugs (Phil and I both bought one for each other, how funny!)
We relaxed for awhile and put some food in the oven, and headed to my sister's house for an outside party. Four of my siblings didn't attend because of fear of covid (they all have a doctor or nurse in the fam), but even a small outdoor get together was so much better than celebrating by ourselves last year. Hopefully next year we will all be together again? Otherwise what is the point of getting vaccinated? I miss seeing my whole family! And we have an almost one-year-old nephew on Phil's side of the family that we haven't even met yet! It's so sad. I'm praying that somehow God will end this pandemic and life will return to normalish soon. It is getting better though, I want to keep seeing the positives.
I hope you all had a lovely Easter, and don't forget, it's still Easter season so celebrate with some chocolate!
