Easter weekend


Easter was our first holiday in the Lazona House!
On Saturday evening while enjoying homemade pizza, 
my little family also dyed Easter eggs and sang a few songs
about Peter Cottontail 
(...hopping down the bunny trail, hippity hoppity Easters on its way....).
And then I remembered just how good 
it feels to have a place of my own!
My very own to decorate, clean, and love inside and out!
On the morning of Easter Sunday, we were visited by the Godparents who brought
a large chocolate bunny named "the professor" for the godkids to maul.
(They always bring the best presents!).
I made oatmeal with fresh fruit and quickly served it before we left
the house to worship at church.
Look how cute my little monkeys look in their Easter best:
 
The children cleaned up pretty well for church- especially Oliver.
Sometimes we call him "Dirty Bill" name after this guy:
(He is one of our favorite Disney characters).

Next year I think I am going to celebrate the Easter bunny,
 the baskets, and the candy on the Saturday before Easter.
I want to reserve Easter Sunday for the Savior.
It's HIS day after all, and I've noticed that all the
 fluff stuff is such a distraction to this sacred day.

Happy Easter.
I am grateful for the Savior, who we honor today!
