Easter

We had a great Easter this year. It was really nice to have conference the same weekend of Easter; it just made it even more special. I always enjoy hearing from the prophet. Tyler's mission president is in the seventy now and he spoke in the last session of conference. His name is Gregory Schwitzer. Tyler was really excited to hear him speak.
Easter was also extra fun with Jacoby this year. We had several Easter egg hunts and he loved them because he thought they looked like balls. Ha ha. I even found some eggs that were sports balls. He got The Princess and the Frog, some books, and a bunch of candy. He ate way too many sweets on Easter, and so did I. Isn't Easter candy the best?
We had an Easter brunch with my family on Saturday in between sessions. We had lots of yummy food: brunch rolls, sour cream pancakes, fruit parfaits, hashbrowns, and eggs. (links to the recipes)
Later that day, us girls and our kids got together during the priesthood session. My mom had the idea to do a pizza party, so we ate pizza of course, made pizzas out of paper, made treat pizzas out of Rice Krispies, and read stories about pizzas. The kids loved it.
My parents got all the grandkids basketball hoops for Easter. Jacoby was thrilled to have another one, but Tyler's parents had just given us one, so we decided that we should switch it for something else. Thanks, dad, our apartment in Arizona will just be too small for 3 basketball hoops. :)
On Sunday after conference we went to Tyler's parent's to eat dinner. The food was really yummy. Jacoby got to do another Easter egg hunt and he loved getting more treats. We watched Sherlock Holmes with his parents and I highly recommend it.
I hope you all had a fun Easter/conference weekend.
