Here is our gang, all decked out in their Easter finery. Since the two oldest both celebrate birthdays next week, I’m going to round their ages up to the nearest year. (What a teacher thing to say! LOL)
We had a nice Easter morning. We did baskets and “Easter toast” yesterday, so there was less stress and rushing to get out the door for 9:00 AM church today. The three oldest kids all played a part in their Primary opening exercises: Hannah gave the scripture, Kendra read an Easter-themed talk, and Alex prayed.
Alex gave a beautiful prayer, thanking his Heavenly Father for Easter, for Jesus, for resurrection and for the opportunity to attend church on such a special day. Just when I was going to give myself a pat on the back for all the focus we placed on the TRUE meaning of Easter, and how readily all the kids accepted it, I heard Alex say, “And bless us to have fun with all the toys the Easter Bunny brought us.” In church. In his prayer.
I was mortified.
So here they are, looking quite adorable and sweet, just minutes before we left for church, and, as I am going to remember it forever, “The Great Betrayal“.
I hope you had a nice Sunday. Happy Easter!
