Happy Easter!

Yesterday we spent the day searching for Easter Eggs, coloring Easter eggs, and doing all sorts of Easter preparations. The kids thoroughly enjoyed their Easter activities and celebrations, we enjoyed spending time with friends and each other, and we especially loved the reminder of our Savior and Redeemer of all mankind, Jesus Christ.

To help us all remember our Savior this Easter, our church produced this video about the Atonement of Christ.  I hope you enjoy it this special Easter Day.

And, what would Easter be without some amazing food to share with our beloved families? 

 To help, here is one of our new favorites (courtesy of


  • 1/2 cup warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)
  • 1/2 cup warm milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup butter, softened
  • 1/3 cup white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 (.25 ounce) package active dry yeast
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened


  1. Place water, milk, egg, 1/3 cup butter, sugar, salt, flour and yeast in the pan of the bread machine in the order recommended by the manufacturer. Select Dough/Knead and First Rise Cycle; press Start.
  2. When cycle finishes, turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Divide dough in half. Roll each half into a 12 inch circle, spread 1/4 cup softened butter over entire round. Cut each circle into 8 wedges. Roll wedges starting at wide end; roll gently but tightly. Place point side down on ungreased cookie sheet. Cover with clean kitchen towel and put in a warm place, let rise 1 hour. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  3. Bake in preheated oven for 10 to 15 minutes, until golden.
