Easter 2018

4.02.2018


We had a really wonderful Easter weekend this year. It is great when Easter falls during General Conference. This weekend felt extra fun and celebratory. To kick off our Easter celebrations, last Monday for Family Home Evening we dyed Easter Eggs. I've mentioned this a few times but Reagan is at such a great age. It's so fun trying new things like this with her. Naomi was pretty grouchy while we were doing this little activity but that didn't stop us. We ended up with a rainbow of eggs.



^^Based on the angle of this picture, I'm pretty sure it was taken on accident or as a lighting test, but I love it. This is what Reagan does when she's really excited about something, or wants to really emphasize her thought.



Reagan had her Preschool Easter party on Thursday and I got to come and decorate sugar cookies with the kids. I always love helping in Reagan's class and seeing her with all her classmates.

We watched the Saturday morning session of General Conference at home this year and then headed to Layton for an Easter Egg Hunt. The girls had a blast and it's always fun catching up with friends. We opted for the General Conference radio drive method for the afternoon session, which is particularly nice for the girls right now. We drove during the entire session (the whole length of Redwood Road) and ended at Jordan's parents' house so we could have family dinner and all of the boys could go to priesthood together.



^^Naomi has this special talent where whenever she's eating chocolate she gets completely messy, even just 1 chocolate chip will do the trick.

The Easter Bunny visited our house Sunday morning and left the girls a few things in their Easter baskets as well as hid eggs around the house, and left a self portrait on the living room rug made out of jelly beans.



One of the things the Easter bunny brought was some Unicorn cereal, which is like cupcake flavored fruit loops. The girls obviously had to have some for breakfast. Reagan took one bite and said, "This tastes like unicorns and cupcakes mixed with rainbows!" which I think means she liked it. We also had an almond kringle as a special Easter breakfast.

We watched the morning session at home again and then for the afternoon session we did another drive. This time we drove the length of 1300 E. to Wasatch and ended up at my parents' house for a tasty Easter dinner followed by games and a little Easter Egg hunt for the girls.

General Conference was monumental! So many new and exciting changes and announcements. I was so happy to have been able to participate and witness these announcements and changes. I truly drank from the fountain of inspiration this weekend and am excited to study these messages more in-depth in the coming months. I wrote down 3-4 questions before conference and received answers to all of my questions and was reminded that my Heavenly Father does know me and is aware of my struggles and will help me if I ask.

  1. I never cease to be amazed at your creativity and the fun things you and Jordan do with your girls. They are blessed to have you for their Mother and Father. Love you much.
