Easter 2011 (better late than never!)

Our little family had a fantastic Easter weekend together.  
We have discovered that anytime we are together, 
it is a fantastic time!  We love each other.   
Cheesey?  Maybe.  But there ya go!!

We went to two Easter Egg hunts, had dinner at Grandpa and Grandma's house, the Easter Bunny came and we had dinner at home on Easter Sunday with Great Grandma.  Busy weekend!!  
Oh yeah, we also fit going to church in there!

The Easter Bunny visited Ben and Emma early on Saturday morning bringing treats and a new wagon!
"!  Cool stuff!"

We like our bunny ears and our wagon!
Their Easter baskets had animal crackers and goldfish crackers, bubbles, a coloring book and crayons, a Sesame Street book, a walking egg, summer pajama's and Elmo and Cookie Monster socks.
They loved everything!

"More of these things, Brother!"
Wagon ride with Papa!

Easter Sunday we went to church and Ben and Emma behaved themselves and we were able to stay in the chapel for all of Sacrament Meeting!  An Easter miracle!

After church, we blew bubbles.
Ben and Emma (Mama and Papa, too!) love bubbles!

Aren't they cute in their new Easter outfits?

We are so grateful to have spent this special weekend as a family celebrating the Atonement of our Savior, Jesus Christ.  We are grateful for Him and we love Him.  Every day I tell Ben and Emma how much Jesus loves them and how we need to be kind and loving as He is.  i hope with all my heart that our children will grow to be like Him.
