Easter

  
 We had a wonderful Easter.  Of course the Atonement is the most important part of Easter and we had a very spiritually uplifting service at Church.  The talks were great and we felt the spirit so strongly.  I am so very grateful for the Savior and His atoning sacrifice for us.  I am so thankful for all the blessings that He has blessed me with.
We were lucky to have lots of family with us and so our table was laden with Easter goodies for everyone.
 


Diogo and Andrea with Reggie for his vey first Easter and Emily with Jose and Natalia.



                                                         I loved the matching ties. :)













                                                  After church we had an egg hunt.
                            Tatum had a great time collecting eggs.  She already knew just what to do                     and it didn't take her much time to fill her basket.






















 I'm quite sure that the adults and big kids had as good of a time as the little ones.  I'm so lucky to have such cute kids and grandkids and of course an adorable great granddaughter.  After the egg hunt, we ate a delicious dinner.  After dinner we had our Easter lesson which everyone enjoyed and then we just hung out, talked, played, etc.  What a happy day!

 Of course before the big day we had our egg decorating to do.  We had actually dyed eggs with Val and her family earlier in the week, but one can never have too many eggs. Right?










 I tried really hard to get a photo of this cutie's face, but as you can see, she was too busy moving around and dying eggs to even pause for a moment.
 She filled all the plastic eggs with candy, chocolates and yes even money and never even had a sample.





                                




          Our sweet Sara is visiting from Guyana where she is serving in the Peace Corps.  We absolutely loved spending some time with her.  Not only is she pretty and smart, but she is THE nicest girl ever.




                                         Jose took a "break" and put together a hamper for me.


  I hope you all had a great Easter.

Looks like you had a wonderful Easter.

Egg hunts are fun for EVERYONE, no matter how old you are.
