Easter weekend was a beautiful and full one. I loved our group family texts with updates on what the big kids were doing and snuggling up these kids at home…and also some awesome neighbors who we gathered with in between conference sessions. And I loved conference and talking about everyone’s favorite parts en route to Easter dinner with the cousins. My favorite talk, I think, was Elder Bednar’s about meekness. It sure made me think. Grace loved President Nelson’s thoughts on personal revelation and Claire loved the story of the home he grew up in, and thinking about how it affected his life in different ways. Dave was excited about the changes and the excitement and beauty of the whole thing, and Lucy wasn’t sure what her favorite part was, but she sure made some cool artistic creations while listening.
On a totally other note, I’ve somehow successfully taught myself to like Cadbury eggs. I didn’t even like them but since they’re all the rage and they kept coming up over the Easter season I kept tasting them and now I like them. In fact, I love them. Dang it!
Claire wore my sweatshirt the other night to the Easter pageant. It was a little stylishly big on her, but it made a little piece of my heart sad. She’s growing up too quickly. Dang it again!
Ok, we’re heading to watch all the track and tennis stuff of our girls and cousins too that happen to be at our high school so I’m signing out.
