Easter Blessings

Easter seems like it was a long time ago, already, but I thought I'd post a bit about it. We didn't do much to celebrate the secular holiday. Gramma Midge (aka "UP Gramma) had an egg hunt in her backyard on Saturday. The kids all had a blast hunting eggs with their cousins. Cousin Allison P. also did a special Easter Fish Pond for the younger cousins, and the kids loved saying "Fishie, fishie what do you have?" and being rewarded with a small toy.

We read some of the Easter related stories from the Stories from the New Testament.

On Sunday we had Baby B's blessing. It was wonderful to have the support of so many from the Patrick family and the Hen family as well. We love being able to share such special events with our family! It was also great to be able to listen to the talks and the beautiful music in Sacrament Meeting about our Savior's Atonement. It was a great worship service. So great I had to go home and go to sleep afterward! LOL! It is very disconcerting to still be so tired after several really has been a different recovery this time around!

A couple side notes here...

The little bonnet on Baby B's head was made by a woman in Germany along time ago
(ie 20 or so years ago). It can be used as a blessing bonnet and then the stitches clipped and the handkerchief used for the "something old" when she gets married! Cute huh!? So baby B already has an "heirloom"!

You may notice that D is clean-shaven in this picture. A couple months ago now D was called to be on the High Council. The Stake President then asked D to shave off his goatee! After a moment and a big gulp, D agreed. It's amazing how much more he looks like his twin now, don't ya think!!? LOL! Go figure!
