Texas Bluebonnets, fresh from the weekend.
Good morning Mamas!

It is a happy Monday indeed, here in Texas, because our house is under contract--meaning, barring any change in the buyers plans, it has sold! What a relief. We are grateful that everything has gone so smoothly thus far.

On to a new topic. Have you started thinking about Easter yet? I felt fully consumed with General Conference / selling a house preparations that I have yet to really ponder on this upcoming Easter. Even more so than Christmas, I think Easter loses its true meaning. It takes real effort to emphasize the reason for Easter and I want to make it a priority this year with my family. There are still two full weeks, so let's get moving.

Here are some of the great resources I have found over the past few days of looking:
Jocelyn at We Talk of Christ, We Rejoice shares a great list of Easter books
An Easter Tomb Craft from Sugardoodle
Another idea from Jocelyn, are paper plate tombs, I think we'll try them for FHE tonight
A neat way to incorporate eggs into learning about the life of the Savior
An article about establishing wholesome Easter traditions

What does your family do to teach your children about Easter? Any fun ideas or traditions you've started? I would love to hear your ideas.

And, our winners for the Hilary Weeks book and CD. 

From the blog, Staci who said, "Looks like such a great book! I'd love one for me and one for my mom and sister! great mother's day gift!" and from Facebook, Mariesa Morgan who said, "that book looks soo cute!"
Please e-mail me at mamaswhoknow (at) with your address and we'll get those sent right off.

Oh, here is the link to the paper plate tombs:

The one on your post is the same as the book list, I think?
