Christos Anesti! {part ii}

Featuring the chicks and mother hen....

I took about 10 pictures and these two were the ones close to "acceptable."
We went to Easter Morning Mass at our old parish, Christ the King. We took our sweet time eating pancakes and bacon. We knew there was NO WAY we were going to make it to 10:30a Mass. Thankfully, just a mile or so from our parish church is Christ the King. This was the church where Daniel was baptized. It was great to see familiar faces... Ones we haven't seen in years! Lucky us, we got there just in time for the opening hymn. The church looked full from the back but voila, the front rows were empty. There, we were... brave young family, corralling our 3 kids under 5 years old. We sat behind the Eucharistic Ministers. It was pretty much the front row.

The children enjoyed their Easter Baskets.... and so did I.
Presenting my residency graduation present.  I just celebrated my one year anniversary as an attending and I am just now using my bag! The leather has not darkened yet -- so it looks, fake, huh? hehe...

I waited till 6 months post-graduation till I ordered this baby.  It took me another 6 months to use it. . Every time I thought about using it, it was either raining or snowing. I did not want to stain the new bag.

Louis Vuitton Neverfull MM

I call this Louis II.
I ordered the mon monogram version. I used pink interior, and pink and mustard shading for my initials. I skipped the racing stripes.

Everybody had a fun Easter!
Most of all, I reminded the children that Easter is not about fancy new outfits or chocolates or designer purses. Daniel pointed up to the sky, agreeing with me that Easter is all about Jesus. Jesus conquering death. Jesus is Risen! Alleluia!

Linking up with FL&P, WWIW and TuckerUp.
