I love Easter!  I'm not really talking about the secular side of Easter, although I do love the Easter baskets, the egg-hunts and the cute decorations!  I love the real meaning of Easter.  The part about celebrating the atonement and the resurrection of Jesus Christ.  Easter is a holiday that is full of hope and joy.  And I love celebrating with my family (and extended/adopted family!)
This year I did not do Easter dresses for my daughters.  They went to prom the night before so I let them use those dresses for Church....  But the Easter Bunny did make baskets full of special Easter goodies for them....  (And the Easter Bunny even mailed one to Colorado!)
The Easter Bunny made these two girls close their eyes
as it put the baskets, books and shoes in their laps!
English versions of Fig Newton's favorite books!
Kotten Kandy is excited to read the Leven Thumps series.
And Key Lime Pie is excited to own her very own set of Gregor the Overlander series.
Stuffed bunnies, candy, shoes... Who could ask for anything more?
Colorado Kid agrees!
Scott loved his basket too!  YUM!
And the Easter Bunny remembered me too!
I got a new game - and I LOVE it!
And my favorite:  Cadbury Creme Eggs!
Amy had her annual Easter Egg Hunt for FHE.
Kotten Kandy and Taffy helped Jelly Bean hunt for his eggs....
And Marmalade loves looking for eggs....
Raisin could hardly contain her excitement!
Apple Pie, Jelly Bean and my sweet daughter!
Best Friends helping little boys!


  1. Happy Easter! Love you guys 😊

  2. Sunday is almost the next one...Sunday, that is. I'm sorry to be so late in reading all the E-Mail. Looks like your days were filled with fun - and CHOCOLATE??!!
