Easter Sunday

The Easter Bunny came to our house, and he left lots of fun things. The girls got new dresses, flip flops, cups, sunglasses, and Disney Princess Barbies. Jack got a new game, a big red ball, and some Apple Jacks.

He loves it.
I got a kindle. I love it. I have over 100 free books on there now so it has already paid for itself. Thanks, Easter Bunny!

Ross got some new cologne (that ended up being a woman's variety so it has to be returned. . .), some cinnamon mouth wash (by his request), a new battery powered razor, and a Jimmer shirt.

Jack showed us what good quality the flip flops were.

When we got home from church, we found that the Easter Bunny had come AGAIN and hid some candy eggs for us. He also left little bunny ears for the kids. Emma was so excited by this extra visit. It was really cute.

OK bunnies, go get some eggs!

Thanks Easter Bunny. I love you!

Emma made that basket in Pre-School. I think she did a great job.

The following is our terrible attempt to get a family picture with all our Easter Duds via the self timer on my camera.

I didn't make it back in time for this one.

Sara got bumped just before this one flashed, so she is miserable.

I hit the wrong button on this one. I just think Emma looks so serene and pretty. Gosh, I make cute kids!

We are all in this shot and looking in the right direction, but nobody looks very happy about it. . .

This was as close as we got. Happy Easter family!

Mischief got in on the fun as well, although we had no dye at our house...

Maybe next year. How cute would he look with little blue socks? :)

At church, we enjoyed some wonderful talks about Christ and the Resurrection from our Bishopric. I sang in the choir for a beautiful number. I really love our ward choir. We have such a fun bond and I don't think I have ever been part of a more talented ward choir. It is really one of the highlights of my week. I also led the Young Women in a pretty rendition of He Sent His Son. It was my first time leading a choir in church, so that was interesting, but they did great.

At home, after all the pagan rituals were complete, we enjoyed a pork roast with all the fixin's and had a nice relaxing day eating candy and talking about what we had learned and heard at church that day. It was a lovely day and I was sad to see it end.

I have frequently thought about getting a Kindle but not sure it would make me read more than I currently do, which I would definitely want it to do. Plus, there's something about having a book in your hands. Do you miss it?
