Happy Easter!

What a wonderful holiday!! and despite the rainy weather, we had a beautiful day!! Complete with bunny cake- of course!! Only this year it tasted D.I.V.I.N.E. because I use THIS RECIPE! Check it out, you will NOT be disappointed!!

The Easter Bunny sent Addison and Laynie hopping all around the house looking for their baskets!

Laynie found hers in the bathtub!

And Addy found his in the Dryer!

Hailey found everyone's candy and loved it-

Loved the Easter grass too!

As I look at this picture and think of Easter, I am overwhelmed with gratitude for the Savior Jesus Christ, that his sacrifice made it possible for me to live forever with my three beautiful kids and my wonderful husband! When I was in Jerusalem 10 years ago, I visited the garden tomb, the garden of Gethsemane and Calvary. I felt the Spirit witness that in fact Christ is the Savior of the world and His sacrifice is for for me and each of us. But that same Spirit that bore testimony to my soul in such a sacred place, is the same Spirit that bears witness to me in my own living room as I read the scriptures and ponder God's plan for me and my family. I love the Gospel of Jesus Christ, it is the plan of happiness and salvation.

As I look at those pictures I'm overwhelmed with gratitude for WONDERFUL children who have brought joy, as promised, into my life. I'm sitting in a hotel room at 6a in Denver, Colorado, wishing I was somehow with you all, knowing that somehow we are with each other all the time and today, especially, you will all be with me. Love Dad (Papa)
