Easter Weekend 2016

I love Easter. I love all holidays, but I really LOVE Easter! We do the typical egg hunts and such, but we are also careful to make certain the kids understand what Easter is really supposed to be about. We have a great love for our Savior, Jesus Christ, and hope that our children will feel and do feel the same way. 

We started off the holiday weekend by spending time at Grandma McSweeney's house with family. We had a fire and enjoyed some food. 

This is the treat that I brought... banana cream pie cookie cups. They were delicious, if I do say so myself.

Most of the cute cousins who were there.

Then, the cousins got to participate in an egg hunt. It was the only one my kids did this year, but it was great. They got so many eggs and other fun things. We love spending Easter at Grandma's house.

My dad also sent things from Australia for the grandkids and the big kids, too! We are so spoiled! Thanks Dad/Grandpa McSweeney!

My Mum gave each of the kids the book Gethsemane. It goes along with the Primary song. I love that song and so does Lila. She always says that it's her favorite. The pictures in the book are beyond beautiful as well. It's a great addition for our family.

Sunday morning, the kids got their baskets and new Easter clothes. I didn't get a picture of my kids in their outfits, but they sure did look adorable. 

After church, we enjoyed a delicious meal. I didn't take a picture of all of the food, but I did take a picture of the bunny rolls that I made. So cheesy, but I love cheesy.

Happy Easter everyone!
