Easter Sunday--morning and afternoon

For the rest of Easter Saturday, we cleaned and got ready for Easter Sunday.  I didn't have more baking to do, but Marcus did: he made his traditional lamb cake using the Joy of Cooking pound cake recipe.  I put together a pan or rainbow jello--a crowd favorite.  ;o)

Sunday morning we got dressed for Mass and when the kids came downstairs, they found that the Easter Bunny had hid their baskets!  Baskets had jelly beans, chocolate, books, shirts, and play-doh.  They had fun seeing all the goodies.

After Mass we made our way to Meghan & Shane's house for a lovely Easter brunch.  One of the favorite things for the kids to do there is play on the jump-o-line:

kite-flying was fun too
a little "media time" after all that activity
we adults always like to catch up on the latest happenings
in each others' lives
Back at home for the early afternoon, we had the little kids nap and the bigger kids dyed eggs.  Before too long we packed up and made our way to grammae and papa's for Easter dinner....
