Happy Easter!

Here's Sariah before Church in her Easter dress. She was the talk of church, untill she pulled her pigtails out... oh well, she was still really cute! We had a LONG church day. We thought that all Doug's meetings had been cancelled, but then we found out he had ward council after church, and we had all come to church an hour early so I could sing in the choir. (I also sang in a women's quartet, it was a really nice Sacrament Meeting.) Needless to say, we were happy when we all finally got home and Sariah took a nap.

That is, until she woke up from her nap and was a super grouch (I think teething strikes again!) The Easter bunny had come while she was napping and left her a basket & some eggs filled with gerber crunchies "hidden" for her to find...

You can see, she wasn't really that excited...

She did finally warm up after we put on one of her new Wiggles dvds and she calmed down. Then she got interested in her basket, and by the end of the day, found all the eggs (once she realized there was tasty treats inside!)
Its been a crazy week, so we didn't get around to dying our eggs yet, but I think we're planning on doing it for FHE tonight... Sariah also got some sidewalk chalk that will be fun to use outside, but of course by the time we could've gone outside to use it, it was snowing like crazy, AGAIN. Luckily not enought to stick to the sidewalk though. (We've had a new record here, over 100 inches of snow this Winter... our average? 46.)

Of course all this was really fun, but I am still very thankful for the real reason of easter, the Atonement and Resurrection of Jesus Christ. In RS we were actually talking about Julie Beck's talk, "What Mothers Know." but it was amazing how it related so well to the Easter message, since what it really boils down to is Charity. This pure love that Christ had allowed him to make these sacrifices for us and give us the gift of the ressurection. I'm thankful that through the atonement I can one day return to live with my Heavenly Father (and have my family there forever!) HAPPY EASTER!
