Easter April 8, 2012

Easter is such a wonderful time to remember our Savior and the sacrifice he made for us. I enjoyed a testimony today from a man I really respect. As he was pondering Easter on the way to church he said that because of the gospel we don't just think about this once a year. This is part of our daily lives. We constantly remember this sacrifice because it reminds us that we can be forgiven and to keep trying to do what is right. How wonderful that we have this blessing in our lives. I never realized how lucky I was to grow up with this knowledge. I am grateful my parents took us to church every week and made us realize what is important. I know that I am eternally blessed because of this gospel. I could not imagine my life without it. I enjoyed spending time with my family this weekend. We went to visit with my Mom for lunch yesterday. The Easter bunny had already dropped off baskets for the boys there. Star Wars coloring books and new Star Wars toothbrushes that looked like lightsabers. How did the Easter bunny know??? I always enjoy catching up with my Mom. I wish I got to see her more often but her work schedule is always keeping her busy (and tired.) We spent a lot of time at my Dad and Debby's house. They (and Michelle) even offered to babysit the boys last night so Chad and I could go to the movies. (Thanks again:) After church the boys got to search for eggs that Debby put together and hid for them. She also hid 2 chocolate bunnies. That was a surprise. This is the 2nd year they have done an Easter egg hunt and they look forward to it all year. This might have to be a tradition. They have enough candy to last them through June. Then we ate a delicious dinner and an Easter bunny cake that Debby made. It was so cute. We had a great Easter and can't wait to see them in a couple weeks for Nicholas' birthday party:)
