My two oldest girls went to the church Modest is Hottest dance on Saturday night. They both looked beautiful, and had a really good time!

We started off our Easter weekend on Saturday afternoon at Grandma's house. All the cousins got together to dye Easter eggs. As usual, my dad and I were the only adults to dye any eggs. My older girls got really creative this year, using rubber bands, nylons and pressed flowers to decorate and dye the eggs. They turned out really nice.
We finished with plenty of time to get cleaned up and to the General Women's broadcast that night.
Once the egg roll was finished, it was time for dinner. My mom traditionally makes ham and cheesy potatoes for Easter, along with jellos and other side dishes. There was plenty of food, and then the evening was spent visiting. We do talk about Easter, and Jesus, and the resurrections, etc. but it isn't really something that I take pictures of and blog. Maybe I should write something more about the spiritual side of Easter - so it doesn't seem like we are so secular in our celebration - but I think I will leave that for another time. It is still hard for me to sit at the computer for very long at this point.
