The True Meaning of Easter

We woke up and started out late for church. Yes, I know. Easter is a yearly celebration dedicated to remembering the resurrection of Jesus Christ and all other blessings that this single event in history brings. However, not only was my stomach protesting anything that wasn't warm, but I just felt it was unethical to feed my family cold cereal for breakfast on Easter morning. So we were 45 minutes late (later than we have EVER been) for nice, warm, homemade pancakes. Which made us miss most of Sacrament meeting.

We got home and had lunch. Then we did Easter baskets and Easter eggs. I try to keep the baskets somewhat Christ-centered, so they always get a church book. Erik loved his.

My two boys. Cute, huh?

Taylor dying Easter eggs (the night before).

Taylor LOVES egg hunts. I kept the plastic eggs from last year, and whenever he finds them lying around he hides them and tells me to go find them. Then he tells me to hide them so he can find them.

Have I mentioned that we have perhaps the best neighbors in the world? On Saturday night they went to all the houses on our street that have kids and put bunny pawprints on all the porches. They're awesome.
After that we went on over to Chris and Carlie's for Easter dinner. Yum! The kids had another egg hunt and loved it. No pictures; forgot the camera. But we had fun!

So many things to love about this. First, the pancakes. Second, the church book (and Eric eating it) and third, the sweaters. I just want to gobble them up. I can't wait until next year when I can eat all of Jonah's candy.

Um, and I meant Erik.

I love the picture of both of them together. The outfits are soo cute, or maybe it's your boys that make the outfits cute.

It is nice to re-live easter eggs hunts through the grand kids. It just isn't that fun watching Steve hunt for eggs, and he will not wear a cute vest.

totally cute bunny feet. Had never thought of that before!

ditto ditto kinko kinko on the sweaters. My first thought on your being late to church was, Hey, at least their sweaters match! =)
