Elle spoke in church.
She did a great job.
Some cute friends came to listen:
Elle had a pretty special blessing from our Patriarch after church. It was so beautiful. Since my parents were in town they got to come along and it was so great to have them there.
(Gotta love my Dad’s face in that picture.)
We had dinner with my parents and my great brother Josh.
(on our new table we still don’t have chairs for…some day…)…complete with our egg place-tags Claire and Lucy came up with and our English “crackers” which you “pop” before you eat.
My brother got an eye patch in his which cracked me up, my dad got a mini harmonica and everyone always gets a crown.
Lucy took wearing that crown of hers very seriously the rest of the evening.
Then it was our traditional cousin gathering we missed out on last year.
(see what I mean about the crown?)
Favorite series of pictures from Easter:
Love that cute little photo-bomber up there 🙂
I love the faces when they’re getting ready to jump:
And I love all that Easter joy.
Hallelujah for the sacredness and joy we got to celebrate that beautiful day.
