Easter 2012

What a wonderful day yesterday was!   We had the opportunity to celebrate our Savior's great love for us.  Church was so nice, I enjoyed reflecting on the atonement and the resurrection.  What a blessing it is to know that we too can be resurrected and given eternal life one day!
We had a happy Easter!
Here are some pictures of our good day. : )

The kids in their new Sunday clothes.  Kate got her own picture because you couldn't see her pretty dress with the boys standing in front of her! 

After church we had an egg hunt.  Jace opened the eggs he found and ate the candy as he went.  The other kids were running all over the yard gathering eggs and he just stood there eating!

I was so happy that yesterday was such a beautiful day and that we could do the egg hunt outside.  You never know what kind of weather we'll have for Easter!

Going through their loot!  The kids also got some other candy (of course!) and some goggles in their baskets when they woke up.  They were excited about that.  Now they are chomping at the bit to go swimming to try them out!

It was such a nice and relaxing day.  We had celebrated Easter with my side of the family the week before and are celebrating with Kelly's family next week.  So, we had a pretty quiet day!  My brother and his family did come over for dessert later in the evening and that was a good time too!

I love holidays and getting together and creating memories for our kids!
