Easter 2016

Easter was super early this year, which means, living in Idaho, it was COLD! Our Easter bunny came on Saturday and put plastic eggs in our house to find!

Reagan liked hitting the eggs together. I remember when Davis was this age, he was not sure what candy in the egg was for. Different story for Reagan! I guess that is what happens when you have an older brother to help you out . . .
Davis got some plastic dinosaurs
And a "telescope." At least that's what he calls it.

Reagan got a little book about animals that she loves!
We got together with our friends in the ward for an Easter egg hunt/picnic on Saturday:
 Here are two of my favorite people!

 The kids played duck-duck-goose before the Easter egg hunt started

 Davis hunting for eggs.
 It was SO COLD and Reagan was not impressed! I actually had to drive kids back to our house twice to get blankets and thaw them out!
 Here is Davis with his buddy Damian. After they ate, they sat in the sun and tried to get warm.

On Easter Sunday, we had dinner with my parents, who had just gotten back from visiting Carter and Whitney in Chicago on Saturday night.
Here is Grandma with Davis and Reagan. Grandma had knee surgery 3 weeks before the dinner, and she was still on crutches at the time.
And here is our picture in our Easter outfits:
Yay for holidays! Yay for family! Yay for Easter!

Even more importantly than the bunny and the dinner, I am so grateful for the resurrection of Jesus Christ and for his atonement for us. It has hit me even more clearly this year of what a monumental event it was for Jesus to atone for our sins, and what Easter really means to me. Lately, I have seen a lot of tragedy in this world, of people dying young and with little children, and even of little children dying. It is such a wonderful assurance to know that, because of Jesus Christ, we will all be able to be resurrected again and live with our families for eternity. That is the best news ever.
