No Escape….except Easter!

No matter where we go, there is SNOW! 

On our little Balinese dog and the front porch…

EXCEPT….at good old St. George!  Reliably beautiful weather brought us a splendid Easter Day with the Loosli Family first with reading the scriptures of the last days of Jesus with a symbol of each event in a plastic Easter egg prepared by Saren. Thanks to Jared we watched some clips from Jesus of Nazareth on You Tube all of which helped us feel the true meaning of Easter.

Then it was on to the delight of the Easter baskets…

Our day was full of feasts…first Eggs Benedict for breakfast and then a wonderful dinner of pot roast and veggies with Saren and Jared at the helm….

The feast of words at general conference was inspiring!  The message of how important parents are was pretty clear and included in almost every talk.  We are ready to do better and be better!

The little kids worked on puzzles while the big kids took amazingly accurate notes on what the speakers were saying!

It always adds sparkle to have Charity with us…

She and Eliza prepared a really fun Easter Egg hunt in the wash with 67 plastic eggs after conference….

It was fun to skype Jonah and Aja who were also having a grand time…watching conference on their computer and preparing Aniston’s new room which will include a full- room mural with horses running through it! 

We thought of all of Eyrealm wherever you are…including Tal and Anita in far-away India.  Eric says we got three feet of snow at Baliwood last night but it’s melting here in Kolob. Hope you’re warm wherever you are (you may be sweltering in India T & A).  HAPPY EASTER!
