We have had a great East Sunday! First, here are a couple of pictures Grandma Kerry and I took of Ellie gearing up for Easter the weekend before.
Ellie was great for church today - 11:00 church is awesome when we visit Grandparents! Here was Ellie's very 1st Easter basket. We already had the basket and the ribbon from Grandma Reva, so I decided to try and decorate her basket and I think it turned out pretty cute. The Easter Bunny sure brought her some good stuff, even if she can't enjoy your typical East candy yet.
Ellie did great pulling things out of her Easter basket all on her own. We didn't end up handing her anything. It was really funny to watch because she pulled all the food out first and didn't even notice the toys for a while.
Yeah, she may have been hungry - she tried to tried to eat each and every food item she pulled out.
She did end up enjoying her toys too. She got some great balls that all make noise and a little truck that has tiny beads that pop in the back when its wheels turn. It was hilarious to watch her with the balls. She couldn't decide which one she wanted most and kept rapidly picking them up, putting them in her mouth, and then dropping them to pick up a new ball.
And then we ended up trying to take a few family pictures since we didn't have any recent ones.
These are also a few pictures of her later in the day. She's so cute!
We are grateful for such an amazing day with such great weather. We got to spend some time outside with Ellie and Grandma and Grandpa. We also enjoyed a day where our thoughts are turned especially to Christ, the Atonement, and His Resurrection. We are so grateful for the Gospel in our lives. Happy Easter all!
