This Easter was an especially fun one at the Garff house. Our children are finally getting old enough to understand some of it, at least Claire is. The Easter Bunny came to our house on Saturday and later that afternoon he came to Grandpa's as well. Claire was so excited and Ivan caught on pretty quick. Although Nora couldn't hunt for candy, she had no problem raiding her basket and eating the candy. After her first Cadbury Egg, she was trying to eat them with the wrappers on. She takes after her mother :). That afternoon we also colored Easter eggs. It was the first time we had ever done that with the kids and they had so much fun! On Sunday we read the story of the Crucifixion of Christ and the resurrection. Claire was amazed by the whole thing. We watched a video that came out in the Ensign a few years ago called "Finding Faith in Christ." Claire loved it and was full of questions. She was so excited when they watched it in primary too. She asked to watch it again before bed! It is exciting to see your children grasp on to the gospel principles that you try so hard to teach them. Ivan was even excited about it but he tends to be excited over just about anything but nap time. It was a very restful and enjoyable weekend.
