Easter Morning

Growing up I always enjoyed celebrating Easter. My mom always made sure we had plenty of eggs to decorate and find. We would each get our own dozen hardboiled eggs to dye and find. To this day, I love the idea of having so many eggs at Easter you don't know what to do with. It seems in talking to friends we were one of the few to actually find real eggs rather than the chocolate or candy ones and to this day, as weird as I am, I prefer the real thing than the candy. (I'm not a big candy person at all. Cookie or brownie eggs would be another thing).

With all of the fun of Easter Activities, I often find I forget what Easter is really about. This morning I found this video that really touched me and made me extremely grateful for Easter. Please take a few minutes to celebrate the real meaning of this important day for mankind by watching as well.

I know that our Savior lives! I hope I can live like him more each day.

Happy Easter, Erin!
I'm sorry I didn't have a dozen hard-boiled (or brownie or cookie) eggs for you to find this morning :)

Dying and eating are much better than finding. It's still not too can use food coloring.

Matt was definitely surprised when I told him the extent of the Jackson Family Easter Festivities. I think he was also surprised to find a basket in his closet, but what kind of festivities are they without a basket?

Hey Erin,

I'm so glad that I got to spend time with you on Easter. The good news is that we will be making a return trip for graduation. I passed my defense. It was a million times easier than I thought it would be. Hooray! I lost my cell phone immediately afterward so I haven't even been able to call anyone (including you) to gab. Anyway, thanks again for a great Easter away from my own little family. The familiarity helped a lot!
