Easter 2016

Around the Nielson home, we celebrate the Easter holiday on Saturday. 
The Little Nies hunt for eggs and Easter baskets and do other festivities
that have to do with bunnies, chicks, and other cute fuzzy animals
the day before Easter Sunday.
We made our Easter eggs look like fried eggs 
(Thanks for the idea, handmadecharlotte).
The girls had much fun helping me dye and then crack the eggs.
The kids went on an Easter egg hunt around the house and found their 
baskets filled with all sorts of sweet treats like chocolate bunnies, 
Robin Eggs, Cadbury Eggs, and Peeps. 
And, as an extra special surprise, each girl's basket contained 
a beautiful hand mirror - because every lady needs one in her purse, right?

On Easter Sunday, we honor and commemorate the incredible 
Resurrection of our Savior. It's a very meaningful day for us, 
and we celebrate it with joy and gratitude.
We attend church each Sunday, but today is special. 
We sing and talk about renewal, forgiveness, peace, and happiness 
that only the Savior can offer.
Easter Sunday, we had a lovely dinner with my parents, 
Lucy and her family, and our friend Emily who attends BYU. 
(She's actually Page's college boyfriend, Matt's daughter).
