My little Lucy (not featured amongst these goofballs) did extra chores for weeks on end, saved up her money, and then bought me this most beautiful hat. The way my children love me in spite of my many flaws and failures takes my breath away.

He's almost two, you know, and very independent and most busy. He might stop for a snuggle and snap but I'd better make it speedy. 😉❤️😍

Happy Easter, sweet friends! 🐣 🐰 💛

There is no one on earth with whom I'd rather take seven children to 8:30 PM Easter Vigil Mass.

"Holy Saturday is the day of the ‘death of God', the day which expresses the unparalleled experience of our age, anticipating the fact that God is simply absent, that the grave hides him, that he no longer awakes, no longer speaks, so that one no longer needs to gainsay him but can simply overlook him... Christ strode through the gate of our final loneliness; in his Passion he went down into the abyss of our abandonment. Where no voice can reach us any longer, there is he. Hell is thereby overcome, or, to be more accurate, death, which was previously hell, is hell no longer. Neither is the same any longer because there is life in the midst of death, because love dwells in it." - Pope Benedict XVI

Me by Monday afternoon. Especially the hair. But maybe the pajamas, too. 😉

First bit of decorating is done! The toys on the ground were the finishing touch. 😂

I don’t know if it’s the beautiful spring weather or the fact that I’m in a season of life where all of my little ones are sleeping through the night (glory, glory, hallelujah!) but lately all I can think about is home decorating. We live in a lovely, but very beige, house and I am hungry for bright splashes of color, happy corners, and cleverly covered walls. I need guidance and inspiration, though! If you have a favorite home decorating Instagrammer (or even just an Instagrammer who occasionally shares their home decorating projects), would you tag his or her account in the comments? Thanks, cutie pies!

See these adorable shorts on this adorable baby o' mine? They were a gift from my friend @mommashaunie of @babymylove.etsy. You guys. I have seven children and have been buying children's clothes for over 13 years and I have never loved a pair of shorts the way I love these. Scout's Honor. They are soft and stretchy and so well made and Max absolutely adores them. ❤️ In addition to cute shorts, Sharon makes blankets, bibs, bonnets, skirts, shirts, dresses, leggings, and the most gorgeous sets of wooden eggs. I just love her work. ❤️ And because she's so sweet, she's offered to give away one of her sweet headbands to each of the first three callers on the show today (SiriusXM 129, 1-2 PM Eastern). We'll be chatting about Holy Week traditions so give me a call later today if you're a SiriusXM subscriber!

Start your prayer engines, friends. I, a person who has never painted furniture and does not have much of a gift for such endeavors, am about to try to create something similar to this bit of beauty above. (Swipe right to see the before.) *

This is either going to be very cool adventure or an epic disaster. Maybe both? If you are skilled in this area, please give me your tips and tricks: what do I need to buy (besides paint and a paint brush 😂)? Do I start at the top or the bottom? Should I sand it first? I seriously have no idea. *

Luckily, sweet @beaninlove is joining me on the show today (SiriusXM 129, 1-2 pm Eastern) and I plan availing myself of her brilliance. BTW - if you don't follow her yet, get the on that. She is AMAZING. *

Thanks, love bugs!

Thank you so much for all the birthday wishes today! I feel very, very loved. You all are the best.
P.S. How much do you love this Audrey Hepburn quote? 😍
