|Helping to prepare the Altar|
We decided to drive back to Dripping Springs after the mass, and we didn't get there until 3 in the morning! We walked our sleepy selves into the house, and we were greeted with the sweetest surprise of all . . .
TARA AND BARRY ARE HAVING A BABY!!!!!!!!!!!!! They had made this Easter basket to tell Brie, and decorated the whole house with pink and blue streamers and balloons. They were sound asleep, but I HAD to go flip the lights on and let them know just how excited we were!! You can read their whole beautiful story here on Tara's blog. I am OVER THE MOON and cannot wait to meet my little niece or nephew, who we are affectionately referring to as "Pedro." Tara is due December 8th, which will make for a very fun Christmas this year!! We spent the rest of the next day celebrating and relaxing with my family

What a blessed Easter weekend!! The beautiful homilies and masses this weekend inspired Michael and I to really use this Easter Season to grow closer to God as a family. We are total tv junkies, so we are starting by cutting back to one tv show a week. We have chosen American Idol since it is our favorite and the most appropriate of all the shows we have been watching. Even though Cora is still little, we are going to start censoring what we watch now! It is so easy to become relaxed with the type of television that you watch because it seems like these days anything goes! But when you step back and take a good look, many of the most innocent seeming shows have some pretty bad stuff going on! I will let you know how it goes!
We wish you all the happiest of Easters!
