Happy Easter!!

Well, stay away from our house right now, as we have a 3rd little girl getting this awful cough, (getting worse by the minute) that seems to be spreading....This is what my kitchen looks like right now, tea and medicine.
It started Holy Saturday evening, I've had about 2-3 hours of sleep each night. Between feeding baby, and sitting up with each feverish, coughing child, I try to sleep! The cough in the middle of the night seems to last 3 hours each child and nothing helps except to sit up (preferably on mama) and sip warm tea each time they cough.
My poor little sick girlies! They were so excited to wear their Easter dresses....
We'll save them for Divine Mercy Sunday!

See my pretty flower band Kisteen?
Sick or not, the candy sure brought smiles as did the Easter egg hunt!
Resurrection Roll making, wrapping Jesus (the Marshmallow) in oils (butter) and spices (cinnamon and sugar) and putting Him in the tomb (the crescent roll)
SO easy and always such a hit on Easter morning!
Resurrection eggs to read and peek at, sacrifices rewarded and beautiful colored eggs!
OK, I'm going backward on this post....oh, well!
The girls are not smiling, because they are fighting right now about which egg should go in next!
We marble painted our crosses on Good Friday....
Watched tape 3 of Jesus of Nazareth....wow, The Passion is soooooo much better! It was good for the kiddos though, but they did keep saying, "wasn't Jesus more bloody than that?" I suppose, after our red marble painted crosses....
This time I added celery though, I love lots of veggies!
Homemade pretzels, hardly felt like fasting,
yummy pretzels and yummy soup!!
(Recipe here)
See my cute little Spring chick? I love Spring bonnets on babes!
We visited tiny little chicks at a friends home!

We combined Jessica's 2 Lenten Teas and had one on Thursday. (linked on her sidebar, I'm to pressed for time to link them now!) We did this at a friend's home. The kids loved it and can't wait to do the Easter Tea!
I hope you all had a wonderful Holy Week and Easter!
I'm off to take care of my little sickos...


  1. It looks as though your Holy Week was full... especially with sick kiddos in the mix. Hope you are all well again soon!!

    Happy Easter

  2. I'll have a cuppa and one of those pretzels, please. Great pictures, Jamie! Your kids are darling. God bless you and yours. Happy Easter!

  3. Praying you stay healthy and the kids are healed quickly.

    You sure got a lot done for fun and food. We had pretzels, but I cheated and bought them from Schwans. I'd love to try the recipe some time, though. Maybe I'll be better prepped next year... one can always hope.

    The bonnet and headband are adorable on your little sweetie.

  4. I enjoyed talking with you also. Had to call and wish you a HAPPY EASTER! Sick kids...no fun...but such is life. Praying all get better soon so MAMA CAN SLEEP!

    Cute Easter pic. A memory for sure.

    Looks like you had a good preparation for Easter with all the food, egg decorating, etc....

    If I would have seen those chicks..I would have put one in my pocket. I want chickens so bad.

  5. Happy Easter!!
    We'll pray for good health asap. Never fun for anyone!! You still did a ton of great things for/with the kids. I can;t believe how grown up babycakes looks on the pics!!
    I'll have Noelle offer her birthday wish/prayer tonight for you all to get better!!

  6. Joining the others in prayer so that you're healthy and well for Divine Mercy Sunday. Don't you just love that novena? I KNOW you do!

    We made your pretzels on Friday and you are right--it didn't feel like fasting. Except I DID fast the rest of the day and felt I'd earned that yummy pretzel. :)

    Get well soon! The sunshine we've had does help, doesn't it?

  7. What a great Holy Week! I pray for health for all of you!

  8. I had to stare at the first shot a bit and laugh, but I am so sorry you are sick!

    The reast of your Easter activities looked lovely. We also watch 2 and 3 of Jesus of Nazareth on Good Friday and like you I thought that the Passion is more like the Stations of the Cross, but the life of Jesus before the Passion is well done and good for kids in the older film. Someday we'll do a combination of both.

    Blessed Easter to you all, friend! Feel better soon, I pray.

  9. Hi! I found your blog via Catholic Icing's Easter Link-up! I am sorry that your family was sick on Easter Sunday! Looks like you got a lot of fun stuff done anyway! Thanks for the ideas!

  10. Hope you're all feeling better now! My family also really enjoyed the resurrection rolls. I think we'll do them every year! Thanks so much for linking! :-)

  11. Wow. What a beautiful blog. And I love your family's picture. Your children are adorable. Boy, I remember those days, when my little ones (now young teenagers) needed mom to get through the night when they had bad colds. Believe it or not, and it's strange to say, but these times will become some of your favorite memories. Your kids will feel the same way. There's a very special bonding that takes place. I know it's a lot of work, though. Hope you are all well by now!
