186th Semiannual General Conference – Priesthood Session

We went to the chapel tonight to watch the broadcast. It is my middle child/youngest son’s first time at conference. There was a bit of a social beforehand where we could have subs and chips.

185th Annual General Conference – Priesthood Session

Tonight we went to the annual “sub-sational”. My brother and his family is visiting for my daughter’s baptism, so he came with my father, my son and me. We had a nice time, but left room for our tradional post-priesthood session trip out. I’m pretty sure we’re going to Boston Pizza again. There were about […]

185th Annual General Conference – Saturday Afternoon General Session

I spent most of the time between sessions watching whatever came on the Mormon Channel. I love watching the World Report and found it interesting (as always). I also cleaned up more around the house in preparation for the family visiting tomorrow after my daughter’s baptism. We’re back in the family room again ready for […]

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. […]

So, here I am with my father, sitting in our family room. This is weird! But I think I like it. The pizza and wings have been ordered and should be here mid-session. Like I mentioned earlier, I think we’ll do this in April as well, and then head back to the Church for when […]

183rd Semiannual General Conference – Saturday Afternoon General Session

Wow! Wasn’t President Uchtdorf‘s talk this morning awesome?! Hopefully there is another awesome one this session. As I make my notes, I’m also following the #ldsconf tag on Twitter. As was expected, the hashtag was trending after the first session. In between sessions I watched The World Report, and then played some Mario Kart Wii […]

181st Annual General Conference – Priesthood Session

After the afternoon session, while the kids were eating dinner, we watched Joseph Smith The Prophet of the Restoration. It was very well done. My kids seemed to enjoy it. We live close enough to some of the sites (Palmyra and Kirtland) that we told them we’d visit the sites this summer. I go to […]
