Here are some of my favorite parts of conference weekend.
Pulling out the blow-up mattress, blankets, and pillows for the whole weekend!:
Seeing on TV that Sister Aburto visited the darling young women
who I loved serving on Navajo Reservation in New Mexico! (I miss you!):
Elder Dale Renlund shared an amazing story about my
beloved great-great-something-grandfather, Daniel W. Jones.
We all screamed (OK, I screamed),
I was so excited! I am so proud and honored of my posterity!
Food! Fruit! Dutch babies!:
The sister missionaries watch a conference session with us,
(and put up with a sniffing Angus):
Between conference session walk at our property.
Spring is stunning!:
Seeing my brother Topher, on TV after sessions.
He plays as the apostle Paul in the beautiful Bible videos.
I love him so much, and seeing him touched me so deeply,
and I can't stop thinking about it:
Dinner with Paige Holland, and her daughter Grace
(and new baptized friend Catlin):
My handsome boys off to the Priesthood session:
ANNNND...then I was a little depressed when it was over.
We waited, prepared, and anticipated this weekend since last October.
BUT, I have a lot to work on until next conference.
I learned so much, felt so deeply, and was uplifted and inspired.
It was everything I wanted it to be--and then some.
I am sooooo grateful for a living Prophet, Apostles, and Church leaders!
