Happy Easter!

From our home to yours!

(Yes, I did make the three bigger girls' dresses, but it's not as impressive an accomplishment as it sounds. I cut them out clear back in October so I could make them for Christmas, but didn't finish them until this week for Easter)

We had a beautiful sacrament meeting yesterday. I got to sing with the choir some of my favorite hymns: "Jesus the Very Thought of Thee," "O Savior Thou Who Wearest," "That Easter Morn" and "Come, Thou Fount of Every Blessing,"

I was thankful for the opportunity to reflect on what my Savior's Atonement and Resurrection mean to me. I was especially touched by these words that we sang:

What praises can we offer
To thank thee, Lord most high?
In our place thou didst suffer;
In our place thou didst die,
By heaven’s plan appointed,
To ransom us, our King.
O Jesus, the anointed,
To thee our love we bring!

And is it any wonder that this one is my favorite?

Oh, that is so beautiful! I love that song. And your kids sure looked cute! Your story of making the dresses reminded me of when my mother once gave me material for a dress for Christmas and the next year she finally sewed it and gave me the dress. The third year, as a joke she had it dry cleaned (it was made of velveteen) and wrapped it up for me again.

Glad to hear you had such a wonderful Easter

"Come thou Fount" is one of my favorites too! Especially with a full orchestra. Your family is so beautiful and growing so fast. Thanks for sharing the moments! Enjoy the Spring!
