 This year for Easter my dad was in town.  He had gotten tickets to see the Mormon Tabernacle Choir perform the Messiah on the Friday before Easter.  I was planning on going with him, but unfortunately his plane got delayed and then delayed some more and he ended up not getting here in time for the show.  It was quite sad.  But I found a friend to go with me...we didn't want to waste the tickets!  I'm so glad that I went.  It was amazing. 

 The temple is always beautiful.  The spring flowers are coming up.  I love this time of year!

 My friend Robyn and I taking an awkward selfie while waiting in line to get in.  

We sat in the upper seats and had a perfect view of Rob's aunt Bonita the entire show.  It was so good.  I love it!

Anyway, my dad got into town and stayed with his parents the first night and then came to our place for the next two nights.  So on Easter morning the kids had an egg hunt in the backyard and then we got ready for church.  I thought we could get a picture really quick before family did not agree:

Ha ha.  That is the best we got.  Oh well.  My hair was still wet anyway.  Maybe next year!

Here are the kids all ready to find Easter eggs!

And they're off!

It's always fun watching the youngest figure things out.  

Emery was quick...and Sadie and Zac were even quicker.  I didn't get any pictures of them!

So cute!

So I made the girls new skirts.  I want one for me now!

And I made Riley this dress.  I bought Zac a new church outfit from Costco.  They were all looking pretty sharp.  

I'm so grateful for the opportunity we have to celebrate the resurrection of our Savior.  I love this video that the church made.

Because of Him, we can all be forgiven for our sins and live with our families forever.

There are five girls in my family and my mom made us matching Easter dresses every year. I made Halle and Thea matching dresses ONCE! Your girls skirts (and dress) are adorable.
