hope you all had a very happy easter! it was such a blessing to be able to know that the reason for the celebration goes far beyond bunnies, jelly beans, or mom's deliciously scrumptious carrot cake. i am so grateful to know that easter is a celebration of the Living Christ! i know that He has made it possible for all of us to live again and i am humbled by the thought of all He has given to me and my family.

we got to spend the afternoon with grammy, papa, unk t, and my uncle rick. i love having so much family so close by and only wish the rest weren't so far away.
some of my favorite things about easter this year:
-clint humoring me to let owey wear this bunny shirt and even agreeing that yes, someday our little girls can wear matching dresses (you must know that clint is a children's fashion critic and generally oposes anything cutesy, or matchy-matchy and insists that owey not wear anything that he himself would not wear.)
-getting to go to the last half of relief society for the first time in MONTHS and really feeling the spirit as we sang "i stand all amazed"
-playing "chit chat" with the fam and finding out interesting facts about every one
-did i mention that carrot cake? yummy, yummy in my tummy.
-eating dinner out on the back porch- it was the most beautiful spring day!
-reading brooke's blog and being reminded just how important this celebration is
-hearing the rock-concert-like church service going on down the street from us and being grateful that we get to go to church once a week instead of twice a year.
thanks for a great day, family!

I wish we could've been there. If nothing else to stick up for that shirt- I recognize it! :) At least you are getting good use out of my boys clothes. Even if there are bunnies on them. Perfect for Easter. Boo on Clint.
I am dying at how cute all these Owey pics are. I need my Owey fix.......

Thanks for sharing the day with us! We loved having you all there. Owen was perfectly behaved on his first Easter. Isn't he the cutest?!!!!
