Easter 2015

Easter this year was a fun time. We had fun with Easter baskets, Easter egg hunts, General Conference and spending time with the family. Even though it only happened last month, my tired mommy brain is really trying to remembered what happened. Thankfully it is true what they say, a picture is worth a thousand words, and I tend to take a thousand pictures! So here goes nothing...

Easter morning, the kids woke up and we had fun digging into the Easter baskets. Each year we try and get them a religious type book in their Easter basket. This year they also got candy, stickers and a few toys. Below are a few pictures of the kids with their baskets.

After we opened the baskets and had some breakfast, we headed downstairs to watch General Conference. Our church has a televised conference every year where the prophet, apostles, and other leaders will share talks with us. This year it happened to coincide with Easter Sunday. We watched a session of conference with the kids while they enjoyed their candy, and mommy stuffed a whole bunch of baby diapers. Conference was inspiring as always, but I will admit that we were all a bit exhausted as we continued to adjust to life with a sweet newborn.

After Conference, we had lunch, naps, and then had the kids decorate a cake for Easter Dinner. Then we headed outside for an Easter Egg Hunt. We had Daddy hide them while we decorated the cake. Below are a few more pictures of our fun!

After the Easter Egg hunt, we packed the kids up to head over to Grandma and Grandpa's house. At this point in time, Sarah was still of the mindset that car rides were to be feared and hated. Luckily, she doesn't mind them too much now. Anyway, we had an Easter Egg Hunt there, and the boys got spoiled by Grandma. Alexander got a new tricycle for Easter and Jacob got a car to ride in. They also got some fun play dough too. We enjoyed a nice Easter dinner with ham and all the fixings, and then just had fun with the kids playing with all their new toys. Here are a few more pictures for you!

Well, that about covers our Easter fun! It was great being able to spend time with the family, bask in the joy of our newborn, and remember the Savior and all He has done for us.
