|Checking out their loot|
The Easter Bunny brought some needed things for Kendra---two new pairs of flip flops, a new tube for the pool, and a pair of sunglasses since her others have gone AWOL. She also got a bunch of Nerds Ropes because the Bunny got a killer deal on them ($.39 each), some gum, chocolate, and Sour Patch jelly beans (our new favorite!). The Easter Bunny's sidekick and amazing helper got ME a basket this year. Kendra really wanted to use some of her allowance so I would have a basket. What a doll she is. I got some nice smelling bar soaps, a handy purse-sized sunscreen, and two facial masks.

Easter Sunday was low-key around here. We purchased a few thick slices of deli ham because I didn't want to spend $30 on a ham for two people and I made au gratin potatoes, green beans, ham and rolls right after church. We had a lovely church service in which the older primary sang Easter Hosanna--a rather hard one, I might say! I taught them the song before I was released from my calling as chorister, so the presidency asked me if I would direct it in sacrament meeting (since the kids were used to my direction). They sounded fantastic! It was a very nice service and a reminder of the amazing sacrifice of our Savior. GREAT day, GREAT weekend!
