Baby's 1st Easter

Easter is such a special holiday. I'm grateful beyond words for the knowledge I have that my Savior lives. His life is the way and He is our Brother, leading us in the way that will return us to our Father in Heaven. As a young girl, Easter was always a favorite of mine. In addition to fun festivities and lots of candy, Easter usually marked the beginning of spring. The earth starts fresh after a long winter and Easter represents the same in our lives. The Savior provides a way for us to start fresh after any trial, sin, or heart break. My testimony of the Atonement  is one of my greatest treasures. I'm grateful for the trials that have led to the faith I have. I pray I always remember them and never take for granted Christ's greatest sacrifice and act of love. I'm grateful to be a member of God's true church on the earth today. I'm proud to be a Mormon. I know it. I live it. I love it.

We were blessed to have my dad and sister here with us for Easter. We dyed eggs, attended a ward party, had a basket for Kayla, ate candy, and a new tradition - confetti filled eggs, compliments of the RGV! Kayla looked so beautiful in her little dress from Haley and my mom. Kayla loved getting to know her Grandpa and Aunt Haley! We loved having them here with us. We are so blessed!
