Easter 2017

Easter this year was low-key.  We had a hunt with our neighbor friends on the windiest day of the season (which actually made it quite fun and memorable as we watched eggs and candy fly down the street)!  Attended Jack's Grandpa's 90th birthday party and organized for a huge photo (by far the largest group I've photographed so I was so pleased when it turned out well), dyed eggs, watched a video on Christ's resurrection, and told the girls stories about why we celebrate Easter, had our own little hunt on Easter morning and the girls got candy and each a Princess Peach watch in their baskets, went to church, then my family came over for dinner and I made egg rolls and asian salad and we played a few games.  Jack is really good at remembering to make these occasions about the spiritual aspects and teaching our girls the Gospel principles that go along with them (while I'm scrambling to do the less important things like boil eggs to dye).  Our kids are at an age where they are grasping the concepts better too and able to answer questions at church or during our nightly scripture study, so that has been pretty great.
