Easter


What a delicious Easter dinner we had!

Menu:
Spiral Ham with Mustard Sauce and Raspberry Chipotle Sauce
Funeral Potatoes
Asparagus with Lemon
Baby Green Beans with Lemon
Deviled Eggs
Mandarin Orange Jello Salad
Cucumber Salad
Yeast Rolls
Chocolate Bunny Cake

Ben, Josephine, Tyler and Ashley came, along with our good friends - one of whom did not want to be photographed! ;D The dinner was amazing, with a wonderful combination of flavors. Everyone brought something and it was a feast! Josephine made this cute bunny cake for dessert - he was delicious!
After dinner, Scott informed the kids that "The Easter Beagle" had visited our house and asked us to give them these Easter baskets. The Easter Beagle is a tradition that a special neighbor of Scott's did for him and his sisters when they were little - he would bring them treats from the Easter Beagle since the Easter Bunny came to their parent's house. That neighbor has since passed away and Scott wanted to continue this tradition in his memory. The kids were thrilled to receive their treats, of course!I love Easter! Besides having another excuse to get together with people I love and eat awesome food, I love this time of rebirth and renewal. What a gift our Savior has given us of the Atonement - to save us from death and sin. And what a gift to know that we will see again our loved ones who have passed and that we can be with our families forever. I hope you all had a wonderful day!
