Lilly woke up Easter morning to find that the Easter Bunny had left some eggs in her room. She could not wait to get out and investigate.

Next she found her Easter basket.

After looking at all the neat things we emptied the basket and she was off for an Easter egg hunt.

Then it was time for church. Lilly favored us with one of her songs using her new microphone.

We had a great Easter Sunday. We told Lilly all about Jesus. We explained that Jesus died and went up to Heavenly Father for three days. Then he came back and had no more ouies because he was resurrected. We tried to explain the wonderful gift he gave us that our family will be together forever. Lilly was very interested because she has seen pictures of Jesus and we have talked about him before. Now Lilly often comes to me and says "Jesus died". I always remind her of the rest of the story and then she says "No more ouies. Jesus happy. Mama forever." I think she understands more then I thought she would. Kids are amazing. I hope everyone had a Happy Easter!

She is so cute! I can't believe how old she looks. Hey thanks for your comment on my blog. It is funny because Claire has had crazy temper tantrums lately and it has been driving me nuts and then after I read your comment I realized that this is such a fun stage and I am loving it. The good definitely out ways the bad but sometimes I forget. Thanks for the reminder.
