Day 815: Bunny Buns

Baby B didn't sleep well last night.

Translation:  I didn't sleep well last night.

And I was more than a little cranky this morning.  I did my best to put on a happy face.  It was Easter after all!

I made these "bunny buns" for breakfast.  If you look carefully, you can see the two ears at the top, a bump for the back of the head, a bump for the body, and a little tail sticking out at the bottom.  They were probably my Joyful Moment.

As was watching the kids' faces as they saw the fun stuff the Easter Bunny brought and then did an egg hunt around the house.  Pretty cute.

It was a very different Easter because after getting home from church we finished preparations for a quick trip out of town.  A new temple has been built in Kansas City, MO and we wanted the kids to see it.

So, we packed.  Took a nap (to help make up for the awful night before) and then headed off.

The drive actually went pretty well and the kids were all quite excited at the prospect of staying in a hotel.  Because hotels are the epitome of excitement when you're under 10.

It ended up being an okay day, but really didn't feel much like Easter.  Still, I am grateful for my Savior who died for me and then conquered death and lives again, so I can live again with Him and my family forever.  And though I love Easter, I don't need a holiday to make me remember what an indescribably amazing gift that is.

Wishing you all Joyful Moments and yummy buns for breakfast!

What a great way to celebrate! My JM was having your big bro's family here and all of us listening to your baby sis speak on the atonement. It was a beautiful Easter day.

Do I say this too often? I really wish I could have been there!
