Happy Easter!

Dying Easter eggs.  We did this the Wednesday before we left for Houston.

The hunt is on!

We didn't get any good pictures of M & M because they were too quick.  Most of the shots of them had only a hand, foot, or bit of hair whizzing past.

 Isaac enjoying his loot. 
All of the primary kids were sugared up for church.  It was a very happy and boisterous Easter Sunday!  Jonathan sang in the choir and I helped narrate the program during sacrament meeting.  After the choir sang Christ the Lord is risen today, I could hear Isaac yelling "Hooray!" and clapping from the back of the chapel.  Aside from that it was fairly reverent, and a lovely Easter program.  We asked a lady in the primary if she would watch Isaac for us during the times we were both up on the stand.  She graciously did so- but got her revenge when they were short teachers for primary.  I got to substitute CTR 4 and all seven of them had ants in their pants!  Jonathan stayed to help out in nursery since they were short on leaders.  He reported that the nursery children were full of busy too.  

Easter basket cupcakes with carrot cake, of course!

Our tradition "Easter rolls"  The inside is empty like the tomb.  This year Matthew and Melissa wanted to know the secret- so they helped me make them. 

On Good Friday we held our annual Easter Story egg hunt in the hotel.  Grandma Linda gave it to us when Matthew was a toddler and it has been a tradition ever since.

Happy Easter dear friends and family!  We hope you had a lovely Easter, and a few quiet moments to reflect on the Savior and the glorious resurrection.
