What did I love about Easter this year?  I loved being able to talk to Kinnie and Andrew about why we celebrate Easter.  Kinnie especially, is at that age where she can start to understand the real reasons as to why we celebrate the living Christ.  I love the Easter traditions, the Sunday outfits, the yummy candy, the baskets and eggs, but I love the real reason more.  I love how Spring brings the rebirth of the leaves on the trees and the flowers and things that were dead and barren over the winter months.  I love the newness of life.  The birds chirping and the bugs emerging.  Everything is gaining life and color and I love how the resurrection of our Savior is celebrated at this symbolic time of year.  Even though Kinnie and Andrew are still so young, it was neat to be able to explain the Atonement and Resurrection to them in its simplest form.

We have exactly one month from yesterday to go until our baby girl arrives.  I guess that is if she comes on her due date...  I am excited, and anxious, and nervous!  I went to visit a friend who just had a baby and I couldn't get over how little he was.  I don't think I know how to take care of something so little :)  I am sure it will come back to me and we are just so excited to have her here with us!
