Easter Sunday



We had a great Easter today and I am ever so thankful for the Resurrection of our Savior! We had a wonderful Sacrament meeting where we had the sacrament and then Morgan talked about the importance of Easter and the Sacrament and said that we could dismiss a half an hour early since we were most importantly there for the sacrament, and that was done. This is an idea the Stake President told him a couple of years back and he has done it twice now in his three year Bishop stint. The idea behind this tactic is to show everyone how important the Sacrament and our Saviors atonement is to our church and you really concentrate on that and then release early. Plus, it keeps people on their toes.

Then for our Easter Dinner we invited over some people from the ward to share our Easter Feast with us and it was a wonderful experience. We had a new couple and their baby over, our kids psuedo grandparents in the ward, and a neat lady in the ward who was alone this Easter due to a traveling husband. Morgan smoked a ham that was delicious and we had funeral potatoes, creamy cheesey vegetables, rolls, raspberry salad, fruit with fruit dip, and homemade chocolate cake for dessert. It was FABULOUS!!!! Then we went to another family in the ward later that night and played card games (Dutch Blitz, which was very fun and mentally challenging). Then we came home and sacked out in our bed. Oh wait, I am still awake....

A cute little side note: As we were driving around town today Will figured out how to unroll the car window next to him and decided to say "bye" to everyone really loudly. The problem is, when Will says "bye" it actually sounds exactly like "Die!" So we went around town with Will yelling "Die" to everyone! A very fun drive to say the least!

P.S. The picture I am sending is so frustrating because the shadows around my face and head make me look like I am 400lbs or something. And since I don't know how to crop myself out of the picture, you will just have to bear with my face to see the kiddos. Sorry!!!

The kids look so cute. You look beautiful too. Hey, our bishop has never let us go early...infact, every Sunday Relief Society goes over 10-15 minutes. Okay, I am not a primary kid...I think I can take it. (Whine, Whine)
