I enjoy Easter, I enjoy focusing on the Savior and teaching my children about the atonement. I enjoy dyeing Easter eggs and am always a little sad when there are no more to decorate. I love making colorful sugar cookies or cupcakes (although I do not put green coconut grass on them). Searching for Easter eggs is great and I love the wonderful spring season with flowers and warmer weather. Easter also makes me sad because I remember my mom so much. Green coconut and jelly beans on cupcakes come from her. April marks the beginning of her birthday month (yes my mother insisted on a birthday month). A beautiful flower garden and days spent in the sunshine make me miss that wonderful woman. Even the Easter candy, especially kisses and fun size Snickers bars remind me of her. We had a wonderful Easter and I loved watching my cute children celebrate, but there will always be a part of my that wishes my fun mother could be here to celebrate with them.
Alex is so fun to have around because he gets so excited about things like Lego cars and Easter egg hunts. He was even excited to watch conference and see the prophet. I sure love my wonderful boy!
I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter and took time to remember the Savior and how much he has blessed our lives!
