Easter Weekend

I really need to keep up with this better. Unfortunately I wasn't doing much with the Princess' last week - just a lack of energy and planning on my part. But Saturday and Sunday I tried to make real special. Easter weekend AND General Conference (Worldwide meeting for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints). So we tried to make it special.

Saturday we woke up and got the house picked up, and then built a tent. We called it our reverence tent for watching conference. In the Book of Mormon King Benjamin gets on a tower to speak to his people. The people came from all over to listen to him talk. They put up their tents and left one flap open for listening to the prophet. Sunday morning I told the Princess' this story as we got back into our tents. Eventually we had to end up with two tents, since it got a little crowded in the one.
While the girls waited for conference to start I made some treats and got some coloring pages printed out for them. Between the saturday morning and afternoon sessions we went to an Easter Egg Hunt put on by the Young Women of our ward. The girls had a blast running around with other kids and just getting some energy out.

Sunday morning the girls woke up to Easter baskets on the table and a new Easter Dress and Hat. They Loved it!

Then between sessions on Sunday we went to the baby's room to find that the Easter Bunny had dropped by and hidden eggs all over the place. What a blast, the girls loved it. After finding the eggs, we headed outside while it was still Sunny and got some Easter Family pictures. It was rough, but here's the best one.
