Happy Easter

“Did Jesus Really Live Again?” (Children’s Songbook, 64):

Did Jesus really live again?
Yes, when the third day came,
He wakened and he left the tomb;
He called Mary’s name.

Did Jesus come to those he loved?
Yes, people touched his feet,
And of the fish and honeycomb
He did truly eat.

And there were nail-prints in his hands
And a spear wound in his side.
Did Jesus really live again
After he had died?
Oh yes! And so shall I!

We had a wonderful Easter. It was our Stake Conference. Bishop Edgley was here and asked that everyone in the stake, including the youth, prepare a talk and to expect to be called on to speak. I was against the idea at first, but the scripture "if ye are prepared ye shall not fear" kept coming to my mind and decided it would be best to prepare something. I didn't get called upon to speak, but those who did really did a great job and the Spirit was felt very strongly by those who were prepared.

Olivia did a small hunt on Friday with some friends.

I made her basket. I love how it turned out, however, its a little small, but it will do.

Olivia had a blast tearing into her basket. I made the springy skirt that she is wearing. We had a bit of a swimming theme since the weather has been so hot and we need to get wet. She got a new swim suit, bubbles, a blow up pool, and some bath letters/numbers.

We hope you all had a great Easter Holiday and took time to reflect on our Savior and His sacrifice for everyone of us.
