Happy Easter!

So, I thought I'd start my day with a post since Carter hasn't woken up yet and we have a little over an hour until we have to be at my parents' house! First of all, don't you feel like you should wear pastels on Easter? Maybe I'm the only one who feels this way, but I got dressed in a yellow shirt and then when I saw Justin's black shirt, something didn't look quite right. I tried to convince him he should put on one of his brighter colored cowboy shirts, but he just laughed at me...ha ha. I guess everyone doesn't feel the need to wear pastels on this day and Justin would definately never go for it if I told him to wear "pastels"...ha ha. Anywho...
Next I must say that this Easter has been loads of fun so far! We started at my grandma's house on Thursday and Friday. She had boiled some eggs for the kids to find and color. Carter is so fun with this now because he can do everything. He understands finding things and walks around tapping his pointer finger on his mouth going, "Hmmmm." I love it when he does that! He got to be naked outside, which was the best thing ever for him! (I didn't want his clothes getting ruined with the dye)
Okay, and lastly...Easter would not be complete without acknowledging our Savior, Jesus Christ. He sacrificed his life to set a perfect example for us and atone for our sins. What would our purpose of life be without this great sacrifice? We would have no reason for being...he's the reason we can return to our Heavenly Father and I am so grateful for that. Especially that we can be sealed to our families and be together through eternity. That is the biggest blessing of all...I so love my family. And speaking of, I better get to putting some pictures of them up before my little monster wakes up! There will be tons more we take today, of course!
