We enjoyed a special breakfast together as a family Easter Sunday and then the girls got their Easter skirts.
That deserves an explanation.
SOMEONE bought Easter dresses for three little girls before I plugged it in that Easter Sunday was also on conference Sunday. Wanting to save the dresses for church, I decided to make them skirts to wear on Easter.
There, I admitted just how blonde I am.
We had to wait to get out to mom and dad’s where there was some actual green poking through to take some pictures.
We enjoyed lunch with the family (Merrill missed-out, he had to go fill in at the hotel because Todd got sick). I love sitting around with my family, being able to talk about anything and everything, but love most of all the gospel oriented discussions we have.
(It doesn’t hurt it any either to have a couple of cute baby girls to hold either..)
Mom and dad did away with the hunt, and gave every family Easter gifts. We all got toys and games for our families to enjoy together outside.
Boys got mitts and baseballs, the girls got hula-hoops, everyone got a kickball/four square ball, and dad made all the girls their own hoppy-taw. He is too cute. They hunted EVERYWHERE for them, and couldn’t find them, so he made them. Then they went to one last store for something, and there they were! The girls all got one of those too.
Ashley got really good, really fast at hula-hooping..
I love how every Easter, I come away feeling so blessed, having an even greater understanding of the atonement and the resurrection of Christ. He truly has saved me in many ways.
I hope this year, to live worthy of all that He has done for me.
