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!
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.
