Easter Weekend

I think we celebrated all weekend long.
On Friday Aunt Anna and Uncle Kyle came over to dye eggs.
I LOVE how the eggs turned out.
Every single egg was cracked when they were done.
And they ate two for good measure.
Saturday was a neighborhood Easter egg hunt
Why oh why do we do this?
The older kids refused to get near.
Poor Roman.
Sunday Morning the Easter Bunny came.
An egg hunt at Grandpa Painter's house was notable.
Zach was WAY into the shiny eggs that had money inside.

Lily didn't care about the money, she loved her candy bracelets.
On Sunday we enjoyed Conference again, and made
stops at Easter Feasts. (four to be exact)
This was a beautiful weekend.
I feel such gratitude for my Savior.
I feel sustained by my faith.
I feel the gentle promptings to be better.
I will be resurrected too, and I can live with my family forever.

could your buckets be any cuter? I think not!!

Your kids are going to look back and remember what an awesome mom you were and wonder how you did it! Your daughters in law might not thank you for your perfection!
