General Conference and Dinner

General Conference was phenomenal as usual this Spring. It is good to have the family all together while we listen to the words of the Lord's servants. This year, the kids started a puzzle that they did off and on during the sessions. It had 1000 pieces.

There was still stitching as well. (I always stitch...the kids sometimes do.)

Here is a group shot of us listening and keeping busy.

This year, the wall was well used. Dad, of course, finished first by a mile. He wasn't missing out on dinner. June, Robyn, and I also finished all the talks before the allotted time.

Tyler managed to be sick on the evening we were supposed to go out, so dinner was postponed for quite some time, but that doesn't matter as long as you get there eventually. We went to Culver's to dine on cheese curds and yummy custard.

We remembered the postage stamp we used last year and played with it. (I admit to being very slow. Even though Ivory had put her face over mine the year before, I still didn't realize that was what the postage stamp was for.) We had so much fun substituting our faces for others. Take a peek at our silliness.

Our new wall is up and ready to go and already sporting many names. I'm hoping to get at least 5 people out to dinner this time. Our record is still four. Oh, and in case you were wondering, the kids did finish the puzzle, although not until the following week during Spring Break.

These two worked on it the most, although I think everyone contributed a little. Even I put in a piece or two at the end.

Conference is always a good time of year. And the perfect start to Spring Break. More on that coming up.

I have to admit that I enjoyed listening to conference in the comfort of my computer room. It was very peaceful. Great talks!
