Easter Sunday

We had a great Easter morning as a family. The kids got their baskets, we had an egg hunt for the boys in the backyard, went to church, and then had dinner with Jeff's family.

On the way to church...I just couldn't resist!

And word for word, this is how I felt today also...taken directly from one of my best girlfriend's Angela's blog. "Today we've been able to mainly focus on the true meaning of Easter. We had a great day at church. It is so fulfilling to me to be in primary with kids 3 to 11 and see and hear them give answers to what it means to be resurrected, know what a picture of Christ praying in the garden of Gethsemane is, know what will happen to us when we or a loved one dies, raise their scriptures in the air as they proudly sing, "Scripture power! Keeps me safe from sin..." and join with us as adults, leaders and teachers in trying to do our best to renew our cups for the week by feeling of the Spirit and speaking and learning of Christ. And the fact that my children are in the mix means even more. Could there really be a better place to be? Especially on this day? I can't think of one. So I give my testimony that I know my Savior lives, he is no longer dead. And because of this I will live with my family again too. What a blessing!" Thank you Angela, it is EXACTLY how I felt today and feel every week.

And then one last picture of Hailey in her little 49ers cheerleading outfit!!! Thanks Gma Capell!
