Easter Happenings

Britta had been asking to “Color Eggs!!!” for a couple of weeks. She was SO EXCITED.


Admiring our work . . .


Moments later . . .


Since Easter was the same weekend as General Conference we got to enjoy our traditional, homemade ‘Conference Cinnamon Rolls.’ It’s a group effort—I make the dough and Eric and Freja roll them out. That Freja has skills!



My four most favorite Priesthood holders—currently we have a Deacon, a Teacher, and a Priest!


This was Leif’s first General Priesthood meeting—he was thrilled to finally get to go with the big boys (rather than having to stay at home with us girls!)


Britta snoozed on Grandma’s lap throughout the entire afternoon session both Saturday and Sunday. Grandma’s lap—what a treat!


The indoor hunt at Grandma and Grandpa’s—because the outdoors was wet and the kids wanted to actually be able to EAT their candy.

Notice Leif wielding one of the MANY swords he and his dad have constructed in Grandpa’s woodshop over the years.



On one of her many walks exploring Grandpa’s trails Freja made this flower crown for Britta . . . I remember making them for her when she was a little girl.


It was a wonderful weekend—filled with family and the Spirit. Thanks for having us Ilsa and Newel!

I remember when you made the crown of wild flowers for Freja. Now she will be teaching her sisters how to make them one of these days. Glad you all had such a wonderful Easter. Britta loved her eggs didn't she! Love, mom
