General Conference

We had a great day yesterday watching conference and just hanging out with each other. I generally really like the Saturday of General Conference. I, of course, love listening to the speakers, but I love that we spend the entire day with the family in a relaxing atmosphere. No meetings to run off to, no getting girls in and out of the bathtub, etc. Just a day to be together. I love it. The girls did great. They had an activity packet to keep them busy, so they felt more involved in the speakers. We had the added benefit of not having to argue with them to stay inside...

That blob at the end of the driveway? Yes, that's my newspaper. I'm sure when the paper lady (to clarify, she delivers the paper, she's not made of paper) tossed it out her window it was a lovely, if not dark, 5 am. However, by the time we taped this, during the morning conference session, it was not so lovely. Thanks Idaho Statesman!
