We had a really great Easter weekend! Pretty much every holiday is more exciting now that I’m at parent. I love doing special things for them. This year, Ande had seen a video where a kid planted jelly beans and by Easter they had “grown” into plastic Easter eggs. He was dying to try it out and see if it would really work. On the Friday before Easter, we went to my parents house and let the boys plant dozens of jelly beans in the grass. When we came over for Easter dinner on Sunday they were SO excited to find that all of their jelly beans were suddenly colorful eggs scattered throughout the yard!

On Sunday we got all dressed up in our Sunday best. I finally got to wear a dress that I fell in love with and bought a few weeks ago. It probably wouldn’t have fit if Easter was even one day later, but I sucked in and literally twirled in it all day long!

Another thing that made the weekend great was that I was filled with gratitude for my family and for this sweet baby kicking in my belly. Last year we battled hard with infertility. But as I took some time to think about the real reason for Easter, I felt so grateful that my Savior was right there with us through it all. Because of His sacrifice, he knew exactly how it felt and was there to comfort us at every turn.

I confess I still have a childish love for holiday traditions and gifts, but I’m glad I was able to look past the fun stuff a little bit this time and to reflect on the real gifts in my life!
