Can I take Communion at both the Easter Vigil and the Easter morning Mass?

I like to go to the Easter Vigil Mass when my children are sleeping. I then go to Mass in the morning with the family. Is it okay for me to take Communion at both Masses?

Provided the second time is within attendance at a Mass, you can receive Communion up to two times per day unless you are in danger of death (in which case you can receive a third time outside of Mass). In this case, receiving Communion at the Easter Vigil and on Easter morning would count as having received once on two separate days.
