The only thing that could have made this day any better would have been that Raychel didn't have strep. She has been sick for several days which didn't allow her to attend church and wear her beautiful new dress. Jolene looked so beautiful in her new dress I also made. She loved it!!
After church we had a little Easter Egg hunt in the back yard. It was a beautiful day, the neighbor's fruit tree was in full bloom which only brought lots of butterflies. The flowers smelt so amazing! Once the Easter egg hunt was over we went inside to finish dinner and watch one of Jolene's favorite movies from the Easter bunny, Hop. After we watched the movie we colored eggs, finished the bunny cake then Jolene built a fort with the stools and watched Hop again until dinner was ready.
I love Easter and all the traditions we have as a family, the Spring flowers are starting to bloom, the grass is turning green, the new dresses. The whole meaning of Spring, a new beginning. Knowing that the true meaning of today is all about our Savior. The resurrection is one of the most amazing gifts we have been given, I am so grateful for Christ and his sacrifice for us.
