Our Easter Dinner ~ Easter Sunday, 2011
After Mass on Easter Sunday, we had the pleasure of hosting Easter dinner! My parents joined us and, of their 12 children, 7 (including myself) were able to spend Easter together at our home – the rest are all living out of state at the moment. Of my six brothers, Paul, Brian and his family, Scott, Kevin and David were all able to make it, and, of my five sisters, only Jennifer was in town.
My Mom, sister-in-law Meagan and Jennifer all helped prepare the food. I posted links to the recipes we served here: Our Easter Menu

Prayer of Mothers
Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.
