Happy Easter, everyone! Today Olivia looked as pretty as a princess walking into church in her new easter dress and white easter hat. I was so proud to hold her hand as she toddled in by my side. She got many compliments. I will post a picture soon. It was also cute to see my little nieces feeling so beautiful in their new dresses. It reminds me so much of when I was a little girl, the Easter dress was so fun. Livi, true to form, also fussed all through sacrament for "Cannnnddddyyy! Candy, Mom, please? Waaaa, candy!!!"
I just have to say how much I love my calling. I am so blessed. The opportunity to serve these girls is a gift straight out of heaven. I love it, and I love them. I wish I could stay in this calling forever.
K.J. got a bike from the Easter Bunny. That was really nice of the Easter Bunny, but Ben and I put in a special request since K.J. is about the only kid who doesn't have a bike in the neighborhood and we didn't want him to get one for no reason and then expect to live the high life. He did a great big double take when he saw it this morning! He loves it! Pictures to follow.
House hunting is sucking my soul out. It is exhausting!!! And not very much fun when you get down to the nuts and bolts of it. We found one last night we are interested in. But it's going to have to sit there for a little while, because we both think/feel we need to stay here at least for a while. Confusing. But not confusing when you come to that conclusion and don't feel confused anymore! That's just nice.
My children love the old Mickey Mouse cartoons and the old Micky Mouse Club. They could watch it endlessly. That makes me happy, because it's what I loved, and what my parents loved!
They are watching it right now, and it's a soothing background sound.
I love Easter, and I love the Savior. I am so thankful He overcame death and that through Him we will all be resurrected and I will see my loved ones again, never to parted!
I hope you all have a nice easy day. I hope I will take a little time to think about the real reason for the season! I love you all.
P.S. About the Edward picture below. It is just so beautiful, isn't it. When Ben saw it, he was like "Who is that ugly guy?" I told him it was Edward and he goes "Gross! He looks like the guy from the movie 'Powder'!" I thought that was so hilarious.
