Easter Sunday 2011

Happy Easter!  I'm so thankful for this great holiday and the ones around me that make an effort to remember the true purpose behind it.  I'm so thankful for my Savior and the sacrifice he made for me and the fact that he was resurrected which will allow me to someday follow in his footsteps.

I could blog about a lot of fun stuff we've done over the weekend, but I think I'll save that for another time and just leave this one as a documentation of my kids at this exact moment.  Don't they look handsome?  (Notice the grass behind them!  We laid the sod Friday before the boys' birthday party and it looks divine, wouldn't you say?)
I could not convince Tyler to be happy for these pictures!  No amount of candy, juice, games, toys or mentioning of boogers could get him to crack a smile.  But that's kind of typical of him recently.  He's still a happy and silly boy, but more and more he's becoming more independent and stubborn.  Aren't I lucky?!  
I actually really am, and I love these little munchkins.  
Doesn't Marshall look like a little missionary?  I was going to grab his missionary badge, but we were already running late for church so we just went on without it.
FYI.  The suit Marshall is wearing once belonged to his daddy. 
Marshall's Gma Stratton sewed it herself!  Absolutely amazing.  She even marveled at the fact today that she used to have the time to do such things.  I'm so glad I remembered it was hanging in the closet... if I had waited much longer to pull it out it would not have fit.  
I wonder if there are any pics of Colby in this darling get up...
