Easter Sunday

Easter holds such a special place in my heart.  

4 years ago I was able to be in Jerusalem and celebrate Easter there.  It was incredible, to say the least.

But this year's Easter was one of my favorites. 

It's such a special holiday, in that we get to celebrate our Savior.  And He is worth rejoicing all day over!  

I loved this video:

And even though I don't 'tweet' I thought of what I could say with #becauseof him:
So here's my fake tweet:
#becauseofhim I never have to face the world alone.

I got to give a talk in my church and I chose to talk about how much LOVE the Savior has for all of us.  I talked about how the atonement is the greatest gift of all.  

Because of the Savior, we can be strengthened.  When hard things come our way, he will help us bear them.  We could do anything with the Savior by our side.

I especially loved this talk:

I prayed Easter morning to be able to have a day free from my anxieties, and to just feel the Savior's love in my heart.

Little C woke up and Mr. H and I watched him gather eggs.  He was so cute: so pro.  He was delighted to find the eggs hidden in our house.  

We got dressed up and headed to church.  It was lovely.

We then drove to Mr. H's and let C take a nap before everyone arrived home from church.  
We had a great time visiting with the H family.  They made a beautiful Easter dinner and we enjoyed the annual H Easter Egg Roll.  Mr. H won this year! He was so pleased.  We enjoyed hanging out and watching the kids play together.  


We then headed down to the G family.  My grandparents, Aunt, Uncles and cousins were all there, as well as a delightful family from my parent's ward.  We enjoyed an Easter picnic in my parent's 'forest'.  It was really fun, and C got to enjoy yet another Easter Egg Hunt.  He still loved it, and all the kids had a blast playing with these foam airplanes.  It was really good to see everybody.  

My parent's yard is beautiful!

C was not cooperating for the Easter family photo.
 We finally got home and relaxed.  

It was a beautiful day.  Thank you to all who helped it be that way!
