Easter 2012

Easter 2012-

We have had a nice weekend.  I really enjoy Easter.  We do our “Easter bunny” celebrating on  Saturday.  Then we celebrate the real reason for the holiday on Sunday.  We had a beautiful meeting at church.  I was once again reminded of how grateful I am for the Savior and his atonement. 

Here are a few pictures of yesterday’s celebrations:

Our traditional egg hunt:

The kids searching through their eggs to find their treasures.  Candy is good; but money is better.

(which seemed so much easier this year.  The kids are finally at a good age to do this.)

I had a photo shoot in the afternoon.  Jonathan had to work so the kids rode along in the car.  I decided to take a few of Tess while we were there.  I tried to get her to wear this bunny hat.  She really didn’t like it.

…and our favorite part of the evening.  Our glow in the dark egg hunt.

I used glow sticks, folded in fourths, taped, and then stuffed inside the plastic eggs.  They thought it was so cool.  We let them hide them several times for each other.

I think this is our new tradition.

It was a beautiful weekend.

…and a little more about what this weekend means to me.  ENJOY!!!

So fun! I love the glow in the dark Easter hunt idea. I was feeling kind of lame at Easter this year. But we did do Easter dinner with the Forreds, Bagleys, Dunlaps and Wilsteads! Wish you could've been there!

P.S. Jaron and I are writing his personal statement for res apps. If you have any advice, please do share!!

Love the idea of the glow sticks in the eggs. Looks like it was a great Easter. Tess is looking bigger and bigger!
