Happy Easter!

Easter started out perfectly with watching General Conference of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints last weekend. Elder Jeffrey R. Holland's talk, "None Were with Him", struck me the hardest. His words left me with such reverence for our Savior and in deep reflection with the true meaning of Easter. I'm so grateful for Elder Holland's tender words and the reminder of the ultimate great sacrifice and love my Savior has for me and all of His children.

Marisa woke up this beautiful Easter Sunday morning with an Easter basket filled with pots and pans and oven mitts. (It was a foreshadowing of her birthday gift...)

So excited to find an Easter present in the morning!

Daddy and Marisa!

YAY!

Happy lil' chef!

For Easter we celebrated with dinner and an Easter egg hunt with family and close friends. Marisa loved Grandma's Easter egg hunt. She was in heaven when we let her just sit afterwards and eat all the candy. When I asked her how many Easter eggs she had she counted to about as high as she could go and then yells out, "59!" haha (She had 12.)

Marisa's "fake-cheesy" smile!

We also sang "Happy Birthday" to Marisa since family wouldn't be around for her party or for her actual birthday. I made rice krispie treats in the shape of a cupcake. Marisa just ate the jellybeans off the treat. =o)

Acting a little shy as we sang to her!

Happy Birthday!

Cupcake rice krispie treats!

We ate a lot of candy and sweets today and we are so grateful to celebrate Easter with lots of love and family! Happy Easter!
