"It isn't what you have,
or who you are,
or where you are,
or what you are doing that makes you happy or unhappy.
It is what you think about."

Easter - March 31, 2013
Easter is a special holiday in our home. It is a day to celebrate the life and the sacrifices of our Savior, Jesus Christ. I am so grateful for all He has done for me and for my family. We are truly blessed to be able to repent and return to live with God again. I am grateful that we were able to remember Him together as a family. We began the week with A here and so we got to discuss Easter with her as well. She even gave a wonderful Family Home Evening lesson on the Atonement. How grateful I am that we get to share these spiritual experiences together!
K and I went Easter clothes shopping kind of last minute as I had been sick and we had also had so much going on all month. I do feel like Easter is a time of renewal. A new outfit symbolizes the new life made possible through Jesus Christ.
It is difficult to find modest dresses for teenage girls. WOW! I knew it was hard to find 'cute' modest clothes, but we couldn't even find anything ugly! I wish that you could see K's dress up close. It is cute. We found a T-shirt that was the same color and she wore it underneath. You would have never known it wasn't made that way, it worked so perfectly! Very blessed! We found a super cute dress for V and two blue ties for the boys. Perfect.
This picture is just classic. V loves to stick out her tongue and I love that she did while smiling in this picture. I also love Daddy holding her. He is such a great man. He has so many responsibilities at church, with our family, with his employment, taking care of the home, etc.. And, he handles it all with such grace. I am grateful every day that I (of all people in the world...I) get to be his wife. I am blessed - so very blessed.
I am a happily married LDS SAHM of six kids (17-year-old girl, 15-year-old boy, 12 year-old girl, 9-year-old boy, a 3-year-old girl, and a 2-year-old boy). I love life. I am truly blessed to know my Savior, Jesus Christ. I desire to spend my whole life in service to Him. I love my children with all my heart and dedicate myself to being the best Mommy I can be...it is a daily challenge, but one I cherish.
