Happy Easter

What a beautiful Easter today has been! Barry and I teach the CTR 8 class and lucky for me it was my turn to give the lesson. Of course it was on the resurrection! What a great lesson! I think I learned more about the resurrection than the girls did. I am so graetful for my Savior and his sacrifice for all of us. The knowledge that we will be able to see all of our family members and friends again someday is so wonderful. I am grateful that I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

As a family we had a wonderful weekend full of Easter Egg hunts a great times with family. Here are a few pictures :)

The annual dying of the eggs. Well actually this is the first time we
have done this since we have had kids.

What a cheese ball!!

Blowing Bubbles!! Look at that face, so cute!

Isn't she pretty???

Look who found us at Grandma's!!
Here comes Peter Cottontail, hopping down the bunny trail!!

I LOVE this particular bunny!! Betcha can't guess who's in the suit???

The young cousins and their loot.

On a side note, I have decided to work on little physical self improvement. Yep that's right! Time to hit the weight loss train hard core. I have done it before so I know I can do it again. You know when you look in the mirror and what you think you look like in your head isn't what you see. Well that's where I am at. I haven't been happy for awhile and am ready to put some action into changing it. I have decided to join Weight Watchers again and really take control of my eating. No more eating out as much. Focusing on nice healthy meals and working out EVERYDAY. So now that this is out in the public, please do not feed the animals (aka me) any junk food! Thanks to all!! I'll keep you updated on my progress. PS for my first week I am still working on avoiding junk food. Easter Candy isn't helping with this.

Sounds like an awesome Easter! Pretty cool that Peter Cotton tail came! You truly have an amazing hubby! I wish you the best of luck with the weight loss! That is my focus right now too! My goal is no eating after dinner.

Thanks Wendy. My goal is to not eat chocolate with/after every meal. Now that we have all this Easter candy lying around, yikes!!!

I am right there with you with the weight loss thing. I looked in the mirror and was like, "What?" Good luck to you and I will be trying hard also. My sister is doing WW also and she said their new program is awesome!
