Easter Pictures

Sunday was a spirtual, fun, tiring and long day. We went to church and the service was moving and powerful. We went to the Saturday night vigil the night before as well. The vigil service was the most spirtual experience I've had in a long time. Tears filled my eyes more than once. Emma Rose you were in everyone's prayers.
Gracie fell asleep in my arms.
Patrick's parents had just arrived from Florida the night before. We are so blessed that Wendy's in-laws are such fun people. We love being with them. Also, Patrick's brother Terry (there are no less than 4 Terrys between the 2 families) and his wife Lisa and 3 kids were also there. Lisa is soooooo very pregnant. She looked ready to deliver at Christmas and is extremely uncomfortable. Her youngest was 13 lbs. No gestational diabetes. Lisa is due the beginning of May. Keep her in your prayers.

Gracie is getting SO big!

Our little Easter Bunny!

We brought Bama with us to the service and she said she enjoyed the service very much. After church we headed up to Wendy and Patrick's.

Bama, Ben, Gracie and Josh

Just as we arrived home my mother, brother and nephew arrived from Rhode Island and New Hampshire. They are here this week. I'm glad my sister decided to take this time. It gives us all the chance to visit. My nephew, Peter, is signed up for the Marines immediately after graduation. He will be leaving for Paris Island July 3rd. He's a great kid and I'm glad I'm getting the opportunity to meet him again. Last time I spent any time with him he was in grade school. I wish him all the best and pray he stays safe.

By the end of the day, I felt the same as Grace.


  1. Aha, a new post. Looks like an Easter that was celebrated the way it was meant to be. I can't believe how big Gracie is getting and she looks like such a happy girl. Thank you for your wishes for Emma Rose. We thank God for each day with her. I'll try to call tomorrow aft. We take Emma in for her two week check up tomorrow. A real gift from God. Much love, Sherry
