Our first Massapequa Easter

Our family enjoyed our first Easter in our new home. The kids all enjoyed their pre-Easter festivities. Juliana’s class had a Spring/Easter/Passover party, where they played games, enjoyed snacks and talked. The boys each had a Spring Hat Parade, and the week before the parade we decorated their Easter hats with eggs, stickers and their drawings.

The parades were adorable! I had hoped Joseph would have loved his parade as I had caught a glimpse of him and his class the week before when they paraded outside with their St. Patrick’s Windsock and he had a blast. But when his class paraded outside with their Easter hats on, Joseph wouldn’t even wear his, and he clutched his assistant teacher. Once he saw me, he became attached to me and refused to participate with his class as they sang their spring songs.

Of course I was two for two when Anthony marched out clutching HIS assistant teacher’s hand for their Easter Hat Parade. I was happy to see him smiling, unlike Joseph, although he also refused to sing his Easter song with his class. I was thrilled to be able to get some smiling pictures with Anthony’s hat on!

Louis was not shy nor scared for his Easter Hat Parade. In true mayor fashion, Louis paraded with his friends, laughing and singing right along with his class the whole way through. And my son had no problems posing for pictures either. So glad I didn’t have ALL three boys attached to me during their parades.

What a great job the preschool did with celebrating Easter. I cannot say anything but positive things about Communit Presbyterian. We really love this school!

When the kids Easter break began, I knew I had to keep them busy. We decorated both the inside and outside with eggs, bunnies and spring decor. We made Easter chocolates, and I have to say they really came out good! And of course we enjoyed coloring Easter eggs as a family.

On Easter Sunday, we headed to church at Our Lady of Lourdes here in Massapequa Park, and I must say I was BEYOND impressed with the mass and the pastor’s homily. We are considering changing parishes. After that, we headed to the Bronx for Easter dinner with my family and enjoyed our day. When we came back home, we enjoyed dessert with my in-laws. It was the perfect holiday!
