184th Semiannual General Conference – Sunday Afternoon General Session

In between sessions we finished our Game of Life. Our daughter one, and she was quite excited. The rest of time was spent cleaning up a LEGO bomb that exploded in our playroom in the basement (or at least it looks like LEGO shrapnel everywhere!) Here we go ready for the last session… President Henry […]

184th Semiannual General Conference – Sunday Morning General Session

I’ve said this before, and I’ll say it again… I love General Conference Sunday! Normally I’m up at about 6 am, but this morning I slept past 7, and didn’t get out of bed until after 8. We had a nice breakfast of eggs, waffles, bagels, bacon, and sausage patties, then we played the Game […]

184th Semiannual General Conference – Priesthood Session

My son and I were picked up by my father to go to the Church for the semiannual sub-sational. We enjoyed the food, and it was great seeing my son enjoying himself with the other YM. We then watched the session at the Church. Following the session, we headed to Boston Pizza for some more […]

184th Semiannual General Conference – Saturday Afternoon General Session

Immediately following the first session, we had some birthday cake for our daughter. She wanted an ice cream cake, so we got one from the local Dairy Queen. We then went outside in our back yard to do some work. It was a little chilly, but when working it just felt like a beautiful Fall day. […]

184th Semiannual General Conference – Saturday Morning General Session

The family is gathered together and we are set to get started. Since my oldest is now 12, he is going to watch all of the sessions with us. The younger two will watch half an hour of each session, all of Sunday morning, and then President Monson’s conclusion on Sunday afternoon. Let’s get going… […]

184th Semiannual General Conference – Pre-conference notes

Well, here we are again… another General Conference. Strangely, I’m off work, so I’ll be at home with the rest of the family. Today also happens to be my daughters birthday, so we’ve had a lovely morning of homemade waffles, hot apple cidar, and gifts. What a great way to start General Conference! My son is […]

184th Annual General Conference – Post-conference notes

Well, it’s over. It was quite good. I think my overall favourite session this time was the Priesthood Session. Each session had a talk I enjoyed, but that had more that I enjoyed in just the one session. Overall, here are the talks I particularly enjoyed: Jeffrey R Holland from Saturday Morning General Session Russell M […]

184th Annual General Conference – Sunday Afternoon General Session

I can’t believe that conference is almost over. We’re just about to start the last session. In between these two Sunday sessions we watched Angels in the Outfield. It probably isn’t the typical movie that we would watch on a Sunday, but my wife and I both have fond memories of it from when we […]

184th Annual General Conference – Sunday Morning General Session

I think that conference Sunday are my two favourite Sundays in the year. I haven’t lived in an area where I go to Church in the afternoon, so for us to have the morning available is a real treat. We got up this morning, had toaster waffles, watched The Pirate Fairy (the latest Tinkerbell movie… […]

184th Annual General Conference – Priesthood Session

I’m sitting in our den with my father getting ready to watch the conference. We’ve got pizza, wings, chips, and pitas ready to go. I’m not sure how I’m going to be able to type with chicken wing sauce all over my fingers! 🙂 President Dieter F Uchtdorf conducted A Priesthood choir made up of […]
