So today I will start back tracking our way from Easter Day to the days of Holy week.
Obviously on Easter Day we attended Mass and had our traditional Easter family photo. I am so glad our camera has a timer that we can use so we can get everyone together.
Home made Baskets I put home made things into each year. I try to do differing items but still retain some of the same themes. Butterflies are always into he basket as a representation of the new life from the caterpillars that are put in on Holy Thursday (post on this later)
Stephen of course had to get a
Roast lamb with rosemary and basil
Baked Sweet potato
Broccoli and peas
This year we didn't even make our Lamb Cake, but seriously we had so much chocolate that it wasn't necessary, except for the symbolism, which as I write is quite significant.
I love these group photos of our children. We are all ready for the Easter Egg hunt.
I put out 140 small eggs out for the children to find.
Just for your information I have hidden away the small children's chocolate to be 'dolled' out over quite a few days.
Blessings to you and your homes,
