Easter 2011

It has been a long day.  Ergo, long post.

First, I love Easter.  So fresh, so bright.  I love the spring celebration, but mostly I love honoring the resurrection of our Savior.  There aren't really photos to represent that most sacred part of our day -- taking the sacrament and listening to stories of Jesus at church.  So, here's the rest.

THE SISTERS BASKET.

We experimented with a deliberate and special new tradition: we (ahem, the Easter Bunny) gave the girls one basket, with loot to share.  We thought this might avoid excess and encourage sisterly sharing.  I worried there might be some disappointment or confusion, but the girls loved it!    






THE HUNT.

A quick and simple egg hunt in our backyard, between basket-digging and afternoon church, but right after bath time.  Ready, Set, Go!






Cowboy Marc, Great Grandma Arlene and Grandma Peggy stopped by for a visit.


BUFFET AT THE CLUB.

The bunny stopped by during dinner at the Country Club.  Sophie loved, Millie cried and screamed "buh-bye" from a clearly safe distance.  We jogged off our dinner afterwards by chasing the girls and trying to take pictures.
