Waiting and Waiting

Lent was long... winter was long and cold... Holy Week was forever.... though I will say that we have had some very beautiful Masses, so for that we are exceedingly grateful for our dedicated priests! So here we are on Holy Saturday and the Paschal Fast waiting for the Paschal Feast.  So what better time than the present to get caught up on all my long lost pictures.

 Kili is total mischief.  He loves electrical cords, cupboards, doors fascinate him and he loves the great outdoors. He's now 11 months old.
 The children decided... once again reminded by a listening of The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe... that it would be a good idea to make some Turkish Delight. I'm very much not turkish and I didn't find it delightful.
 Enjoying some springy weather.

 We had a litter of kitties.
 Sometimes it is best not to spy on your children as they play on the front yard.

 Poppy wanted to do a portrait of me.  I see a very strong resemblance.
 Yes, we had snow recently.  Really. Snow. Mid-April.
 Working on some Palm Sunday crowns of thorns made out of the fresh palms.

 We had a wild hail storm and then another time was seemed like a shredded foam storm, it looked just like it does in our living room when the kids get ahold of a piece of styrofoam packing material.
 We watched the lunar eclipse... yes, we were crazy enough to get up at 1:30 am and watch for a couple hours.  It was incredible.

Our Lord was crucified on the First Friday after the first full moon of the spring equinox.  This year's full moon included a full lunar eclipse.
