Happy Easter 2008!!!!!



Spring has sprung and Easter is here! This is the time of year I began to think about my ancestors and family that has passed on and what the resurrection truly means to me. I am so grateful for my Saviour and what he has done for me so I can live forever with my family.

We hope you are all enjoying your beautiful Easter weekend. We have been blessed with great weather and beautiful sunshine!!!!! YEAH
We went out to the west of Utah Lake to join family and friends for the day on Saturday. We played cards, rode 4wheelers, colored eggs, ate too much junk and hunted for over 500 easter eggs. It is a good time and a long tradition. It was a blast!
To watch the excitement on the kids faces when they found the eggs made it so worth the trip that took us 2. 5 hours to get to. :) Because of a forgettful memory, Jim and I went to the old camping spot instead of the new and thus were very late to the lunch date. Funny HA HA! It's always a good time to go camping, getting dirty, enjoying the mts, and being free from the stressors of everyday life.

Sunday morn we got up, had breakfast the kids got to see what the bunny brought and then we went to church. Our kids were pretty good as I sang in the choir and Jim was alone with them. They enjoyed church and learning about the real reason we celebrate Easter.
Now is time for Easter dinner. Since our Aunt Trudy, dads sis-in -law, died and it came as a total shock Mom and Dad Innes drove to Arizona yesterday to pay their respects and I am having Jolene, her boyfriend Dino, and Amy over for Easter Dinner. Wish me Luck!
HAPPY EASTER!!!

You must really have it together to be blogging just before you have people over. :) Cute pictures.

or her husband was perhaps cooking the ham :)

HEHE thanks honey! We asked Jolene to do the taters so all we had to do was cook a precooked ham as it was the only thing left in the store at 12:00 sat night.

You guys look so cute! Hope Easter was fun, we had a good time with Jen and her family-and Ross' dad came in town too so that was fun. Thanks for coming to Lyndi's on Friday it was so good to see you and the kids! love you!

cute family picture. I agree with Lyndi. If I had a bunch of people coming over, I certainly wouldn't have time be blogging...although, that's the difference between someone who keeps a clean house and someone who does not (me!). :)

Oh my! Your family gets cuter and cuter! How lucky you had nice weather for Easter. It was OK out here. Haha! OK. Anyways, it was a little cold and cloudy, but that's ok because our kids are little and they were happy with a little easter egg hunt inside!

I'm sorry but the bunny suit creeps me out! Have you ever seen Donny Darko (edited of course...)..it explains it all! I'm glad you guys had a great Easter, despite creepy bunny.
