Conference Report

This past weekend was wonderful!
I always love General Conference weekend!!!

The highlights included...
The Priesthood session party at the Ayalas!

The hostess with her spread...

Our offering- Jack Lambert Bread...

After appetizers for dinner,
the men went to the Priesthood session while the kids played outside & the ladies played a game...
it was a hoot!

Stella was sure to get in some Grandpa time!

Book buddies...

Ice Cream Silliness...

Then on Sunday, we had a great day as a little family at home.

The bingo game lasted about 10 minutes...



But we were still able to listen and hear great messages from our leaders.
My favorites were...

"We are not in a race against each other....
to see who's wealthier, more talented, more beautiful or even most blessed.
The race we are really in is the race against sin.
Envy is one of the most universal of those. Envy is a mistake that just keeps giving."
(plus his great thought about downing a quart of pickle juice everytime someone else has a happy moment)
- Jeffrey R. Holland

"Don't judge me because I sin differently than you. We must all recognize that we are all imperfect."
(this was my FAVORITE talk!)
- Dieter F. Uchtdorf

"Wise parents must weigh when children are ready to begin exercising their own agency in a particular area of their lives. But if parents hold onto all decision making power and see it as their right they severely limit the growth and development of their children. Our children are in our homes for a limited time. If we wait until they walk out the door to turn over to them the reigns of their moral agency, we have waited too long. They will not suddenly develop the ability to make wise decisions if they have never been free to make any important decisions while in our homes.
Wise parents prepare their children to get along without them."
(along with the great story about his daughter)
-Larry Y. Wilson

Stella's favorite was the Mormon Tabernacle Choir...
...and time with her Daddy.

We are blessed and enlightened.
