Easter Fun

Man, have we had a fun week! I've been running around trying to get everything ready for Easter. I nailed it on this creation...peanut butter cookies with Cadbury Mini Eggs. The cookie recipe turned out AWESOME and then adding a little chocolate was the perfect finish -- thanks for the idea Amy Jo! My new favorite cookie
We took them with us to the Easter Egg Hunt at the church.
Caleb enjoyed himself and got his hands on his first jelly beans! The kids loved finding the surprises inside.
Go Wes! I mean "Tiger Boy!"
On Saturday morning we had a nice little set up for the kids. I really just needed the excuse to get them things they need. With a lot of help from a friend, I made them church bags so they can carry their own books, etc. My bag is just not big enough to do the trick. I think they turned out super cute, don't you?! Thanks for your help Becca!
The boys were pretty excited to follow the jelly bean trail down to find their baskets.
The big boys both got new hats and shirts. My adorable friend heard me complaining about finding the right shirt for Wesley and surprised me with the perfect one! Thank you Sara!!!
After waffles, we went to the Easter Egg Hunt for our village. But the boys weren't really interested in the egg hunt. Last year there were just too many kids, and I think they each got one egg. They just wanted a quick look at the Easter Bunny...
...and a little play time at the park.
Today was a beautiful Easter Sunday. It was nice to have Aaron home in the morning. He and I sang as part of an octet "He Sent His Son." I love the primary songs!
After church we finally got around to Aaron's favorite activity -- coloring eggs.
And then our friends came over for a nice Easter dinner. I think all the food turned out great.
And these kids always have so much fun together!
Tonight we watched a couple videos about the Savior's death and resurrection on the church website. We were able to help our boys better understand what Christ endured for us. I'm so grateful for the opportunity to stop and reflect upon our Savior who lived and died for us so that we too might live again. I know that He lives and He loves us and I am so grateful for that knowledge. And I'm so grateful to be able to spend this special time with my sweet little family!
Happy Easter!

Happy Easter dear friend! Your scripture bags turned out so perfectly! And I'm so glad Wes likes his Daddy Lion shirt.
