Easter Wednesday!

(Yes, I'm alive and yes, I'm a slacker once again, but I'm going to use the preggo card while I still can ;).  I've got to milk it for all it's worth.  Not only do I not sleep well at this point, but Addie Jo has cut out her morning nap and only takes a short afternoon nap so there's not a lot of resting going on during the day, which means I'm pretty tired at night to blog!  Okay, I'll stop with the preggo excuses for now!)

Anyways, Happy Easter!  We had a great Easter weekend with Bill off on Saturday, cookie making, a couple Easter egg hunts, and some Spring weather!  Not only is Easter the most important celebration in our Faith, but it's also a very special time for Bill and me.

We will always remember Easter weekend 4 years ago because it was the first time he came out to visit me in Massachusetts.  I was living with my sister Katie at the time and on the floor beneath the Martin family.  Katie and I still laugh that Bill stuck around after having made him put sprinkles on the Easter cookies (which is by far the easiest part of the process).

We went to the Easter Vigil at St. Julie Billiart and he got to meet Fr. Jay, who later married us.  We also got to have Easter brunch with Phil and Colleen and their 4 kids at the time, which had such an amazing impact on Bill because he said it reminded him to really reflect on what's important in life. We will forever be in debt to their Catholic witness, and to the example of Katie and Fr. Jay's, as well.

Easter morning, 2009, we both got each other sweatshirts for Easter.  Gosh we were young!
