ahhh... conference weekend

I dream of this weekend for months beforehand.

Our faith is an enormous part of our lives, and attending church is a big part of that, and I love the consistency of it all (and a lot more of course).... BUT, our Sundays are usually very full and busy, and Ross spends most of it in a shirt and tie just like weekdays, and I have to do my hair (which anyone who knows me knows is rare)------ so there's nothing like those two times a year when there are no meetings, no getting dressed up, no racing around trying to get all three kids and myself ready since Ross is there early for meetings, no waiting for Ross to get home from his later meetings.... but lots of wonderful, motivating, inspiring talks from our apostles and prophets broadcast through our very own television. :)

We stay in bed a little later, snuggle a little more, make extra large and yummy breakfasts, bake and eat treats with a little less guilt, and stay in our jammies all day long.

I luuuuuuuv conference weekend.

I think about all of you on Conference weekends knowing we are somehow altogether in our church in jammies day. I keep my "family" journals close, and write messages as prompted. The Spirit is wonderful and I wish the day could last longer. Love this picture....it's just what I was envisioning. love you, nana b.

We LOVE Conference weekend too. This was the first year we were dressed before conference. Last April conference we were still in our PJs when the big earthquake hit. I knew it wouldn't happen again but we felt more comfortable being fully dressed. =o)

oh to look as good as you do in morning camera phone shots! Seriously, the biggest reason I can never be on 'Survivor' is because me sans makeup/hair is something no one needs to see.

Conference doesn't start until NOON here! crazy talk! we're sleepy before it begins. :)
