happy easter

We had a wonderful Easter here. Friday night as is our tradition we colored our eggs. This year we tried dunking as our coloring method. Zac and I both agreed we liked last years sponge painting method better after Andrew accidentally spilled purple dye all over. Saturday the kids received their Easter baskets. I left a trail of eggs from their rooms down to the baskets. Andrew stopped and opened each egg on the way to see what was inside. Sunday was a good day too. We have 1pm church so there was no hurry to get ready. The kids were even happy to take some pictures in their Easter finery. We had our traditional egg salad sandwiches (got to eat those Easter eggs somehow) then we were off to church. After church we went to one of our favorite beaches for a walk and a family picture. Anne was so confused as to why so many people were swimming at the beach on Sunday. I told her that they just don't believe in keeping the Sabbath day holy like we do. She said, "Mom, maybe they just don't know the Sunday rules yet." So true Anne, so true.

Just today, Kennedi asked her friend who was over at our place if she would like to join our church..."The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (said very matter-o-factly)...ask your mom and dad!" So much we can learn from them! Your darlings are an absolute vision! Seeing their little bare feet makes me feel warm!

I loved Anne's comment about "they just don't know the Sunday rules yet." It sounds like something Joy would have said when she was little.
