Preparing for Easter

Elanor and I watched this little Mormon Message video yesterday in preparation for Easter at the end of this week. I am not sure if Elanor understood everything and I tried to explain what was happening. However, she did say, "Bad guys giving Jesus owies? I give Jesus kisses, make him feel better!".  For the rest of the day, Elanor kept talking about how Jesus "got owies" and that she needed to kiss him. It was very sweet and I think she understood some of it and was very excited when he came back and saw Mary ("Jesus all better!"). I tried to explain that he did this all for her and everyone, which can be a confusing concept for a two year old. She did understand that Jesus was hurt and needed help and she wanted to be there (as in kiss and hug) for him. Kisses (especially from two-year olds) make everything better and I am sure Jesus would agree.


  1. I just wanted to say I think you are such an amazing mother. Just looking at your blog (and your mom's) you can tell how much you love Eleanor and that you put her first. I aspire to be more like you!! Leo doesn't watch a ton of TV but we just recently cut it out and i think maybe we'll do the one movie night a week like you guys. Love you!

  2. I read this out loud to my Grandma, and she thought it was adorable. :) Elanor kisses really are delightful!
