All I have to say about this Easter is, IT WAS SO MUCH FUN!! Both kids finally understood the concept of Easter eggs, the bunny, and most importantly Jesus! Haylee even sung with the primary during sacrament and you could hear her J She did so great! I held back tears the entire time while I listened to her sing about how much Jesus loved her.
The morning started out with an Easter Egg hunt of course. The kids had to first find their baskets, and then they could move on to the eggs! The bunny was nice enough to give the kids one toy too! They were so excited to find everything!
Haylee's stoked that she finally found hers too:)
so proud of their loot!

all cleaned up and ready for church!
After church we headed up to Grandma and Grandpa Borg’s house for their annual Easter egg hunt! Dylan was all over the concept this year! Especially knowing there was candy inside! There were some points in the hunt where he’d be sprinting to each egg! Haylee on the other hand took her little sweet time. Typical girl :)

After we ate our Easter dinner, our next stop was to my Grandparent’s house for another egg hunt and more cousin time! I’m pretty sure both of my kids just had candy for dinner! looking for eggs with Jojo and Kenzie
Haylee had a nasty fall right before the egg hunt, so she needed her Daddy to help her :(
I just love Easter and for the opportunity I have to look at the impact of the Atonement in my life. I am truly grateful for Christ’s sacrifice in my behalf. It’s no secret that I’ve been through a lot of trials over the past 11 years. In fact, I don’t think anyone I know hasn’t had their fair share of trials too. I’m just grateful that I have the knowledge that I do about the atonement. I’m grateful to know that Christ has suffered for my sake so that I don’t have to. It’s comforting to know that when I’m going through a rough patch, there really is someone out there who knows exactly how I feel. I have hope that through the atonement I will be with my Dad again. It’s been almost five months since he opted to leave us. That means we only have to wait seven more to start doing his temple work. What a joyous day that will be!
