I mentioned to Robert a few days ago that it would be nice if I could just manage to get a few more hours in each day… I feel overwhelmed by how much we have going on in our lives right now! Well, the next morning I woke up at 2:30, dozed a little, then woke up again at 3:30. So around 4:30, I decided to get up and get some studying done. Problem solved! I worked for a couple of hours then started in on my day and got so much done! I wouldn’t recommend doing that every day, but it sure worked well that one time!
At the beginning of the month Robert and I were able to attend General Conference in Salt Lake City and had a wonderful time. We stayed with Robert’s brother, David, and his wife, Vickie, and had such a great time visiting with them and playing games and visiting with their kids. On Saturday afternoon we were also able to spend some time with Lindsay’s future in-laws, the Dickerson’s. We are so happy for her wedding (in two weeks!) and are thrilled to know Darren and his family. We know that she will be loved by her new family and are so happy to know all of them.
On Sunday morning, this is what we woke up to! It was beautiful, but oh, so cold! Plus, we weren’t sure we would make it to Conference on time… we were driving from Provo. Luckily we left early enough that it wasn’t an issue. On Sunday afternoon, we spent some time with our oldest daughter Kelli and her family and helped them unpack some of their boxes. They had just moved into their new home on Thursday and were still getting settled.
Of course, we loved attending General Conference. We were able to attend the Saturday morning and Sunday morning sessions at the Conference Center and loved the spirit we felt there as we listened to the Prophet and Apostles teach us. We also saw some dear friends there and were able to meet new friends as well. On Sunday the temperature had dropped quite a bit, but we took the opportunity to walk through Temple Square and the grounds were beautiful .
These pictures were taken on my phone (just a regular phone…) so the quality isn’t great, but it’s better than nothing!
