Easter Pictures, April Fools Day, and General Conference

Last Easter, Camilla and Jacob were in tears when we tried to take their pictures.  They were very grumpy.  This year was the complete opposite.  I already had Jacob's Easter outfit when Camilla's Easter dress came in the mail.  As soon as she opened the package, she wanted to try on her new dress.  As soon as Jacob saw this, he wanted to try on his Easter suit, as well.  So, of course, I had to get the camera out to take pictures because they were in a much better mood this year!

Jacob and I made cupcakes for April Fool's Day.  After Jacob went down for his nap, I decorated the cupcakes to look like peas and carrots.  This idea is from the book Hello, Cupcake.  Right before dinner, I asked Camilla to get the vegetables out of the microwave.  When she opened the microwave, she was very surprised! 

We enjoyed watching April General Conference together as a family.  During General Conference, Camilla made the First Presidency figures out of toilet paper tubes and the podium out of a band aid box.

Each time a general authority got up to speak, Camilla would "walk" a member of the First Presidency up to her podium.  She would switch them each time a different person spoke.  There was also a choir picture that she colored that she would prop up on the computer monitor each time the choir would sing.  
A nice little nap!
