I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter weekend! We decided last minute to drive out to Roosevelt (where I'm from and all my family still lives) and surprise my parents and family! We made it just in time for family dinner and a massive Easter egg hunt for all the kids! Initially I didn't think Olivia would really "get" the whole hunting eggs thing, but it took all of about 10 seconds for her to snag a basket and take off looking for eggs!
She had so much fun the first day that we had to do another 'mini-hunt' for her the next day. She LOVED picking up the eggs, rattling them to hear the stuff inside, and then putting them in her basket.
This was even the face she made when we told her there weren't any more eggs to find and we needed to come inside. HA!
After her second hunt, we relaxed and watched General Conference...
It also just so happened that I had found a few of my old curlers from wayyy back when and decided I had to try them out on Liv. Unfortunately she didn't love them and took them out before we could get an "after" picture, but we may try again soon :)
Livi got a few darling dresses and goodies, but at the end of the day, we wanted to make sure she still remembered what Easter was really about. I am so grateful for my Savior and the gospel in our lives. We have been so blessed and I am especially grateful for the opportunity to teach my little one(s) about their Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ and that #becauseofhim we are able to enjoy all the many blessings we have! Hearing her sweet little voice say "Jesus" is so cute and is one of those proud Mom moments :)
Happy Easter everyone!!
