our egg-citing Easter

For Easter this year, we spent the day over at my parents house. We went to church in my home ward, and got to see some old friends. Then we headed back to have an egg hunt, play games, watch movies, and eat a ton.....

My boys are so darn cute! I'm one lucky lady!

The best of the "family pictures".....obviously the kids liked the eggs.

Kaden's blue steel :]

How precious is she?!

We had such an amazing time hanging out together as a family. We LOVE being together, and spent a lot of time doing just that. Not anything over the top, just chillaxin.

Easter is always a good reminder of our Savior, and along with this weekend being Easter, I went to Women's Conference for our Stake. We had a wonderful presentation of some music from Kenneth Cope, in his album, Women at the Well. It was a great way to start off the holiday weekend by having that extra reminder of our Savior. I am so grateful to be a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I am constantly reminded of the tender mercies of the Lord in our life, and continually feel humbled. Throughout this weekend, the common hymn was "I Know That My Redeemer Lives". I LOVE that song, and am so touched every time singing the sweet message that I know my Redeemer lives and the comfort that makes me feel. I love the Easter season, and the beautiful weather of everything blooming, and at the peak of life. A constant reminder of God's love for us, and all that He has sacrificed for us to live in this beautiful place. Life is such a blessing and I love every minute of it! :]

I hope everyone else had a beautiful Easter day filled with love, family, and it wouldn't be complete without a little candy ;-)

Ya, Katey, I didn't see you either!! :) But we were there. We got there a little late and sat in the back, which I will never do with our kids. They normally do so well when we sit in the pews, it's like the know that the chairs are to run around and be crazy. Haha. We are going to the ward picnic tomorrow night too, you guys should go! :)
