Happy Easter


Along with all the flowers, blossoms, dresses. We are so happy to celebrate Easter. It was so nice to listen to conference, do our resurrection eggs, and try to focus on the Savior this past week. It's so easy to get caught up in the commercial part of Easter, with all the candy, eggs, and the Easter bunny. I really wanted to make sure we paid extra attention to the real reason we celebrate Easter. I love that our church likes to focus more on the Savior's resurrection instead of just his death. To KNOW that he lives again and that because of him we will too. This knowledge brings so much peace and happiness.

What beautiful pictures (and girls!).

I like the same thing about our church. There is never any doubt that we believe in the Living Christ.

Ok so we had these J. W. 's come to our house to invite us to celebrate the death of Christ with them. Really I never in my life felt so compelled to say, well actually we celebrate his life at this time. I didn't say it, but I had a really strong urge, should I have said something???? Your pictures never fail to deliver and I love seeing your girls together, each one is so sweet! Great Easter shots!!

April..heck yeah you should have told them what was on your mind about celebrating His life. You know me though..I always think of something I should have said after the moment is over. Really...a celebration of His death? Interestin.
