Easter Festivities

We enjoyed a lot of festivities this Easter. Sadly, I did not take one picture, so these foil wrapped chocolate eggs will have to do. I must admit they are looking pretty good to me as I type; I might just have to raid our stash of leftover candy once I am finished posting.

Last weekend we attended a flashlight Easter egg hunt put on by my sister's work friends. Palmer loved it even though it was very chilly. Brody was not as happily entertained and much more aware of the cold.

For the Family Home Evening before Easter, we decorated eggs. Palmer also loved this and was absolutely fascinated with the colored water. He did sneak one red dye tablet in his mouth and one sip of yellow water, but all is well.

Saturday we went to an egg hunt at the local fitness center. Palmer joined ranks there with his best buddy, Kathryn, who he knows well from the daycare. He made out like a bandit in regards to candy and has enjoyed about ten suckers since. We caught afternoon conference while the boys napped.

On Sunday the Easter lilies my sister had given me in honor of our passed mother opened. They were absolutely gorgeous and were a lovely reminder of the message of Easter, that of purity, hope and renewal of life. We enjoyed watching morning conference while the boys napped. During afternoon conference the boys were given an Easter basket from the Auntie Rie and a couple toys from us. They played with their new treasures while we watched the afternoon session.

We went to Grandma Nancy's house for Easter dinner. She served ham, cheesy potatoes, green beans and rolls. I made a fruit pizza. The meal was very yummy, and the company was wonderful. We also fed the nearby ducks, which Palmer absolutely loved!

It was definitely a great Easter; we had a lot of fun, were fed well and were uplifted by the words of our modern day prophet and apostles. And even after all that enjoyment, we are left with leftover chocolate. What more could one possibly ask for?
