    I just love all of this! But my favorite is Lulu sneaking off in the last pic and you grabbing her. Happy Easter!

      Second that question! It's so hard to find good Easter decorations outside of the bunny and chick arena.

    • Kendra

      It was from Catholic Supply, but I don't see it on their site anymore. Which is too bad, it's really cute and has held up really well over many years.

    All your children are beautiful, but I appreciate watching Betty grow gracefully into womanhood. 🙂

    Gorgeous Easter outfits for everyone! Frankie and Lulu look like a cute little old man and woman, so sweet! And this:

    "Question: Mom, why do you always get ME the crazy pants?
    Answer: Because this is how YOU pose for pictures . . . "

    had me rolling!

    Happy Easter!

      Lulu just wanted to hold hers and was not at all interested in eating it. Frankie, as usual, was the opposite!

    Happy Easter! In the picture of you reading to Anita and Gus, it looks like Jack is hiding in the gift bag!

    Those Boden dresses are just beautiful! Happy Easter, Tierneys!

    The hats! And the altar boys 🙂 You guys got such awesome pictures – what fun it'll be to look back on these in years to come! Happy Easter to you all! Can you send Jack over here to get me some sale candy?

    Wow… your blog is ridicoulously amazing… beautiful pictures, showing how you care! For your family, and then for writing about it all. I got to your blog by a post of Haley Lord, about Irish songs for St. Patrick's day. Now I am just trying to be a more elegant version of a catholic (no offence…), but thanks for showing you've covered that corner of the universe as well :-). I love your printables too, too bad my printer doesn't take commands from my computer at this moment, something to do with Ubuntu that I can't solve in this few minutes before dinner. Any way please keep on blogging, your light reaches the other side of the ocean ;-). Thanks.

    Happy Easter! I loved the pictures, such a beautiful family time.

    Those mass photos are beautiful! Do you attend a traditional latin mass or does your parish always have the altar servers dress more traditional?

    • Kendra

      The second. It's a regular novus ordo Mass, but there's no reason the novus ordo can't be beautiful! 🙂

    • Elizabeth

      We go to the cathedral a block from our house. We also attend the novus ordo Mass, and the altar boys also dress in more traditional attire. It is soooo beautiful! They really do a fantastic job. It is packed every Sunday and holy day, and standing room only for all Easter and Christmas. The confession line is so long even with three priests routinely hearing confessions on any given Saturday morning. I love to see how the "spirit" of Vatican II can be so beautiful :). We usually have a traditional Latin Mass once or twice a month on Sunday afternoons as well.

      I agree, NO can be reverent and beautiful as well as the UA.

    I am so impressed by your family pictures. There are only four of us and we can barely get a picture with everyone looking at the camera. I can only imagine what our pictures will look like with more kids.

    I would have never imagined that tangerine and lavender could be a good combination…love the pattern as well! Great pics. Have you heard of Schoola for kids clothing? (Some adult clothing in the teen section). Usually pretty good deals, esp if you have kids' clothes that need to be sold/donated! http://www.schoola.com/stitch?ref=cp-3X1vys3N1
