Beautiful Easter

We went to an Easter party at the church on Friday evening. It was so much fun watching all of the little kids scrambling to get the colorful eggs. It's a good thing they let the teeny kids go first. Kaden was SO happy with his eggs and got the hang of it in no time. When the rush of older kids came out and got all of the eggs he had a breakdown. His bottom lip went out and tears flowed...he was so sad that the eggs were all gone. It was quite pitiful...and funny. Now, he is having a great time hiding his eggs throughout the house. We always know where he has been by the trail of items in mysterious locations, placed with great care.

Saturday we went to a neighborhood party and he had a blast. He just loves other kids. Someone gave him some helium balloons, and it was the best discovery he has made thus far. He was the happiest boy alive with those flying objects. This picture is a little fuzzy, but with his cookie and balloons he couldn't be more pleased...and neither could I!
But, of course, we could never forget the true reason for this special holiday. Our savior Jesus Christ. I feel so blessed to have a testimony and knowlegde of his incredible sacrifice and resurrection.

This amazing artwork is by Simon Dewey. He is definitely one of my very favorite artists, and I love the light in this picture. Christ is the light, and the way. I know this to be true.

Kaden is at a fun age for easter eggs. It sounds like he thought that it was great. I too love that picture by Simon Dewey. I love all his art work. I too feel blessed to have a testimony of our Savior.
