The best Easter ever!

This was seriously the best Easter EVER! Emily was so stinkin' cute and hilarious that I had so much fun. Here are our Easter baskets. They are sitting on top of our brand new entertainment center that we had bought the day before but hadn't set up yet.

Em was beyond excited about her Easter basket.

She would take each egg out, shake it, tell us what color it was, and then hand it to me and say, "open?, open?" So then I'd open it and she would shout out whatever was inside with such excitement. We mostly put goldfish crackers and Teddy Grahams inside so we kept hearing exclamations of "Fishies!, Teddy Bears! Candies!"

Then we had to put all the stuff back in the eggs and she'd do it all over again. And she kept taking out the grass and putting in back in too. Then we went to the park for the egg hunt. Em wasn't so sure of the Easter Bunny.

But he gave her a pinwheel and she was elated. She wanted me to blow on it all day. It was so funny when she would try to blow on it herself because it wouldn't turn, so she turned it with her hand while blowing on it.

She was a little apprehensive about the egg hunt.

It was so crowded!

Then when we got home, we had to do the whole egg-opening routine again.

I love how excited she was to see what was in each egg.

I really wish we would have gotten it on video, it was so funny and cute. Even a few days later, she is still asking for her basket and the eggies. She wasn't so excited about the dyeing of the eggs though.

Nor did she want to take a picture in her cute Easter dress.

For Easter dinner, we went to Matt's parents' house, and all Emmy wanted to do was play with the dog. She kept shoving food in its mouth and trying to give it toys.

It was so funny.

And, of course, I am so thankful for the atonement of Jesus Christ, which is why we even have Easter. I'm thankful to know that we will live again after we die, and that because of Him, we can repent and be forgiven. Happy Easter!
