Happy Easter!

Happy Easter everyone. We hope that you are having a happy holiday

Here are a few of my more memorable Easter memories (in no particular order):
  • On one Easter in grade school I got to stay up late and watch more of the Ten Commandments than I was able to on previous years because I didn't have school the next day. In previous years I knew that about the time that Moses would turn see the burning bush, Mom or Dad would tell me to go to bed. However on this year, I got to stay up until the Passover scene, and then I had to go to bed. Luckily for me I had started to record the movie before then and was able to finish it the next day. This remains to this day the only time that I have seen the ending of that movie (while I have seen Moses protect the daughters of Jethro at the well of Midian many more times). I also remember thinking that the movie ended rather abruptly.
  • One Easter while in Russia as a missionary my companion and I, as well as 2 other missionaries got on the bus to go to church as on any other Sunday, but when we got on, the bus had 3 times as many people as was typical. So many people were on the bus because they were going to visit the cemetery and eat lunch (as per Russian tradition). So while the bus ride itself wasn't as pleasant as usual, the bus rides on that Easter were free which made up for it.
  • I remember the first time that I got a chocolate bunny for Easter and being really excited about it. The excited soon faded once I realized that the bunny was not solid chocolate, but rather was hollow

Adria and I also colored some Easter Eggs for family night. Here are some pictures of the eggs.
