MY Easter bunnies

Lily love ate jelly beans for breakfast, lunch AND dinner
Zach was feeling pretty mellow all day, he ran a small fever that slowed him down, but he was well enough to enjoy the candy!

We were so lucky to spend this Easter with our family! It was a busy day motoring around to see all the fam...but it was nice to be together again. Sometimes it's hard to be reflective at church with 2 wiggly kids, but I did sneak a few moments throughout the day to have some private thoughts! I am so grateful for my knowledge of the Gospel, for the peace and hope it gives me. In moments of confusion, or saddness, there always remains a little break in the clouds. It's a peak into this intense glory and love that was made possible through Jesus Christ.
I really love the words of President Hinckley, "We know not all that lies ahead of us. We live in a world of uncertainty. For some, there will be great accomplishment. For others, disappointment. For some, much of rejoicing and gladness, good health, and gracious living. For others, perhaps sickness and a measure of sorrow. We do not know. But one thing we do know. Like the Polar Star in the heavens, regardless of what the future holds, there stands the Redeemer of the world, the Son of God, certain and sure as the anchor of our immortal lives. He is the rock of our salvation, our strength, our comfort, the very focus of our faith.
In sunshine and in shadow we look to Him, and He is there to assure and smile upon us."

Great pictures, as usual.And great quote, I needed that.More on the move-you aren't really that out of the loop, we haven't been planning on moving to UT for a while, just recently, compliments of our AWESOME economy :)So it may be a short stay or it may be long, most of our life has been and is definitely venturing into the unknown.But we always come out safe, and things work themselves out.Thank goodness God is a God of miracles :)
