Easter was lovely. Well, it was lovely except for the snow. Well, snow is lovely, too, just not when we're celebrating rebirth.
We started the morning gathering everyone into our bedroom to read through scriptures about Christ's crucifixion and resurrection.
And then the festivities began. Easter baskets and egg hunt. Brunch at Eric and Christina's (thanks for hosting, guys. It was wonderful) with Kurt and Ash to watch General Conference. The talks about Christ's atonement were especially sweet to hear.
After brunch, we drove up to Heber to watch (or sleep through, depending on who you are) the last session of conference with David's mom and Bill and Rachelle. Sondra joined us for a delicious Easter dinner. I knew how delicious it would be when I opened the cupboard to throw something away in the trash can and found four empty containers of heavy whipping cream. Yup. It's true.
And my cake? Almond poppy seed bundt cake with fresh strawberries. It was not a disaster! Aren't you proud of me?
I love Easter. I love the message of hope and renewal and remembering even more fully the truth of Christ's atonement and His resurrection.
