Don’t you think Easter is the most important holiday of the year? If any holiday really lives up to being a Holy Day, I think Easter is it. Not that Christmas isn’t important, but without the atonement and resurrection, what is the point of life? With the atonement and resurrection we can start fresh everyday. We have hope in the future. We know goodbyes are not forever. We can become clean again. We hope you enjoyed your Easter with the colorful eggs, the blooming flowers, the coming of Spring and new life.
We celebrated by dying eggs, as you can see, and inviting friends over for a delicious feast, as is our habit. I’ve been wishing for more than two years that they would serve potatoes au gratin at a ward party, but they never do so I finally made them myself. They were well worth the effort. But Micah’s summer rolls (above) stole the show. He’s always outdoing me.
Nothing like good food and good friends and a few rounds of The Loser Game to really make a day special.
