Happy Easter!

The boys would have been in this picture, but one of them was operating the camera and the other was having fashion challenges.  I said, "How about the plaid shirt?" and he heard, "How about the plaid shirt with the striped tie and the purple vest and the red socks?"  Now that I think about it, I should have immortalized that on film.  He would have appreciated that later in his life.

Church was wonderful today.  The choir sang He Is Risen, and a beautiful tenor sang For God So Loved the World.   Then after Sacrament, June taught our Primary lesson!  She did an awesome job leading a great discussion based on the Resurrection Eggs that we got from our sweet friends in Mendon!
Each egg contains a scripture and a small item that represents a piece of the story of the Savior's death and resurrection.   Each of the kids found two eggs hiding in various places in the room, and then June directed them to read each egg individually and DISCUSS what the scripture meant!  (That girl gets more and more amazing every day.)
At the end of the lesson, June asked each of the kids which was their favorite egg.  We all unanimously agreed that Egg #12 was our favorite.  After that heavy, but moving story that rips my heart out every time I hear it, I always feel relief and hope at the end when you read the little piece of paper that says...
 He is not here.  HE IS RISEN!

After church, we had an early dinner and then drove to Carrolton to see Grandma and Grandpa Futrell.  The kids love having a set of "grandparents" here since all of our family is in either Utah or Hawaii.  

I LOVE Easter!
