Happy Easter

Kory and I celebrated our first Easter together as a married couple, and the day was just wonderful. The weather wasn't so cooperative, but I don't think even a blizzard in April could have dampened our spirits. We spent the day at church followed by dinner at home with Kory's nephew and niece, plus two friends who can't simply be called friends. They are family.
I am so grateful to my Savior. Not only has He given me a beautiful life here on earth and the most amazing man with whom I am able to share it, but the promise of eternity in Heaven is almost more than I can bear. The thought alone brings me joy inexpressible. I can't imagine how it will feel to truly be in His presense.
Thank you, Lord, for everything. And I do mean everything.

I have to show photos of my table--I know my mom and grandmoms will be proud! I couldn't find a tablecloth to save my life (and I had to cover two different tables because we couldn't find the leaf!), so I made due with one old white one, some yellow paper grass, yellow ribbon, and a couple of pretty blue and yellow cloth napkins that I was saving for summer. It wasn't what I had originally envisioned, but you have to make it up as you go along; at least that's what I'm learning.

And my ham was incredible! It actually melted in our mouths! (no picture of the ham-it was cut too quickly and isn't so photogenic cut up in tupperware! but trust me, it was good!)
And thanks, Aunt Tina, for the dishes!!! They finally photograph as beautiful as they are in person! I've had SO many compliments!
