Easter 2010

We had a simple Easter this year...and I must say that I quite enjoyed it like that. :) This Easter holiday is our first one here in Utah and we most certainly missed our family back home in Ca. We originally planned to spend it at my grandmother's house, but our plans changed and we ended up at our cousins (The Lupeamanus) home. We ate yummy food and the kids had a little Easter egg hunt in the house. Xani and Mady had a go at the eggs first and they were so cute trying to gather them and put them in their baskets. Lynne's boys (Terrell and Tairiq) and Sariah came out a few minutes later and snatched up as many of the remaining eggs as they could! Funny thing is...when they all sat down to count their eggs they all, inadvertently, had 9 eggs each! It doesn't sound like much, but that was plenty of candy for them! :) After eating the yummy food we came back home and relaxed and listened to parts of General Conference online that we missed. Easter is a wonderful holiday but the purpose of what and who we celebrate it for is even more marvelous.

Simply put...I love my Savior and He lives!

"I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live. And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die."-- John 11:25-26
