Happy Easter from Me!!!!

I just wanted to say Happy Easter to all of you! We had a great Sunday. Our family spoke in church! My 2 1/2 yr old son got a little nervous and wouldn't talk. Dad told the congregation what Cooper had planned to say. He held a picture of a sun he drew and Dad said, "Jesus wants me for a sunbeam to shine for him each day. Jesus is a rockstar!" That is my son's testimony! My 4 1/2 yr old daughter read most of her talk about saving worms that were crawling into the road and drowning in the gutter from death last week. She likened that to be like how Jesus saves us from death because of the resurrection. She drew three pictures for the congregation to see!

My husband and I spoke about Christ overcoming death and atoning for our sins. I shared a few stories (the empty egg and a mission story) and a personal experience how I know I will see my deceased father again. Death is NOT the end! I'm grateful for the gospel of Jesus Christ. It brings me much joy and peace!

Here are my kiddos on the way to church. My son insists on wearing his pinewood derby medal for the coolest looking vehicle. (His was a semi truck!)

After church, the Easter bunny came and brought some new spring clothes, books and other little gadgets. Many eggs were hidden and found! The kids loved it, but they know the real reason we celebrate Easter is to celebrate Christ's resurrection.

I hope you had an enjoyable Easter!
