Easter Sunday

I haven't had any time to blog since Easter, but we had a blast and I wanted to share our fun!

So, Stu and I planned to hide eggs around our apartment for each other, with cute notes and goodies and stuff AND easter baskets, but we had to speak on Sunday and we left that to the last minute, meaning we had no time to do our own easter thing.. but it has not been forgotten, we rescheduled our easter to be next week. Our families came to see us talk in church, and it was perfect becuause they announced Stu's new calling! About a month ago, Stu and I met with the stake president and he was asked to be the elders quorum president in our ward! We were completely shocked and waited (the whole meeting) for the "just kidding!" but it never came. He's the YOUNGEST guy in the quorum! Luckily, we've had time to adjust and now I am just so excited for him! He was set apart after the block and I really have never heard so many blessings promised to one person, there were even some promises for me mingled in there. We have been so blessed since moving back to Mesa, it really is the right place for us to be right now! It is so crazy, when we were choosing an apartment to live in, we were trying to decide between a couple places around the same area. When it came down to two complexes, Stu suggested that we pray about it (isn't he so great?) and we just felt so good about this place we're at now, Stu said he felt "that this is where I think we can do the most good." Weird right? At the time, we were thinking about missionary work but I guess this is what the Lord had planned for us. So anyway, this is the next year or so of our life! Bring it on!

Isn't he just so handsome?

After Church we headed over to my parents for an easter egg hunt and tasty dinner. Soooo good! I LOVE Easter dinner! Here are some pics:






Later we went to Stu's for a second dinner :) The whole Milne fam was there, it was so fun! We got to meet my sister-in-law's new beau, totally so cute together! No pictures from that sadly, but it really was so nice to be surrounded by family all day.

All in all, Easter was GREAT!
