I really loved that Easter Sunday was on Conference this year. It really allowed me to fully focus on what the holiday is truly about because honestly; as a mother with young children it's so easy for me to get caught up in the commercial aspect. Because they don't understand the importance yet and I love seeing their eyes light up when the easter bunny comes, and the excitement of doing an egg hunt, or dying eggs. Easter is one of Isla's favorite holidays because of those things. But I know that I need to start teaching her young so that I see the light in her eyes when she talks about our Savior and all he did for us. That he was resurrected and that he lives. That we wouldn't be here without him. That Easter is one of MY favorite holidays because of THOSE things. Because of him, I have them. Happy Easter everyone.
Oh ya. And then it snowed.
