Easter morning began with a surprise as we looked out the window and saw a sky filled with snow flurries. We added an extra layer to our pre-picked Easter outfits and went on our way to mass. Towards the evening, we had C’s parents over for an early dinner and Alex provided hours of entertainment.
My bunny cake – made entirely from scratch (including the frosting). I was quite proud of the finished product!
Little Mister didn’t actually see his basket until after he ate lunch to prevent any
power struggles wars from breaking out.
Alex and Claudio were thrilled that I wanted to take a dozen pictures up on the alter (can you sense my sarcasm?).
Look at that head tilt! Such a little poser!
Easter wouldn’t be the same without getting a picture with these 3 wearing bunny ears / an Easter bonnet.
I love this picture of C’s dad!! He was pretending to be rowing a gondola with that hat on.
Two stories from the day:
Funny one: While C’s parents were over, they hid a present for Alex in the living room and afterwards played the “hot” or “cold” game until we found it. While we were “hunting” for it, Alex found a chocolate egg under the sofa which was dropped earlier and thought that was what we were looking for. He proudly lifted up the piece of “schoggat” – the mixed language version of chocolate (obviously in English) and schoggi (in Swiss German) – and gave us all a good laugh.
Symbolic one: We arrived a few minutes late for mass, and since Easter mass is always packed, it wasn’t a big surprise that the church ran out of hymnals on the trolleys. Just as I was walking up to check, I was greeted by an usher that always says hi to Alex and gives him a religious coloring page. He saw that I was looking for a hymnal and instead of just letting me walk away empty-handed, he reached into the pocket of his suit and handed me his hymnal. I thought this was such a selfless act and really embodies the true meaning of Easter.
I hope your Easter was filled with much happiness, love, and joy. It is such a wonderful day to celebrate!
