Blast From The Past......Easter!!!


Seeing that its almost Easter I
thought I would reminisce a
little over one of our
most favorite time of the year!

Easter, for us, is a time for Family
and remembering our savior and
his atonement.

Let us always
remember Jesus' Victory
over death and how much
he loves us!!

Let me show you some of my favorite
photos from the past few Easters!!

(my family all gathered around the Swing out back
with Grandma Morris!!!)

Grandma Morris always made Easter
out to be such a fun Holiday!!
She would invite everybody and their dog
over to her house...cook up sloppy joes
or hots dogs and a big buffet of
everything imaginable.
Then...she would send a bunch
of Bunny helpers out to hide the eggs
all over her yard!!
Then....we let all the kids (often 50 or more)
loose!! All usually got about 10 eggs or more
to take home.
Afterwards she would throw her Annual
Candy Toss!!!
The entire family would Gather around the
Big swing under the Apple tree in her backyard
and Yell "GRANDMA" at the top of
their lungs to get her to throw the next
big handfull of candy their way!!!
Im not kidding when i say our
baskets were overflowing when we left!!
Such FUN!!!
Great memories there!
Zacky found a Ladybug on his arm
one year at Grandmas Easter egg hunt!!
turned out to be a GREAT photo!!

That candy HURTS when it hit you on
your head!!!

(Kaydee being pretty at Uncle Neils egg hunt)

My aunt and Uncle took
over the egg hunt and candy
toss when Grandma got too old!!
Its not Quite the same but
still very fun!!!
Tanner and Steve yelling for candy
was a funny sight...

Cute lil Brenden loved finding the eggs!!!

My aunt Sherian and Uncle Neil
"the hosts of the Party!!"
