Conference Weekend

What a wonderful weekend. I absolutely love conference. Besides watching conference I did a few other things this weekend.

1- I canned peaches. This is the 1st time I have canned. I went to my moms and she taught me how. My Grandma Baird taught her how. What a wonderful legacy. Someday I will teach my girls how. The peaches turned out great. I ended up with 14 quarts.

2-B-day party for Cody and Samuel. Any reason to get together and have dinner as a family is great, but it was so fun to celebrate with these two. Cody is a wonderful sister-in-law. I have learned a lot from her (just this weekend how to cook an artichoke). And Samuel turned 8!!! What a wonderful age. His dad will be home for his two week leave soon and will baptize him then. How exciting.

3- Gardner Village. I love this place. Although it was rainy and cold so I didn't get to spend as much time as I wanted to there. But Erin loved looking at all the silly witches and I got a way cute Halloween wreath.

But the best thing this weekend was defiantly conference. I love listening to the Prophet and Apostles words and learning from them. I feel inspired to be a better person and I feel better equipped to be a better person. I can't wait for the conference Ensign to come out so I can read it and learn even more.

Hey, good work! Natalie and I just did a whole day of canning. This was my third year canning and the most I have ever done. Maybe I will have to post my pictures too. I guess Natalie did though. It is a lot of work, but fun and a good skill to have.

Way to go canning peaches! I don't even bother. They come canned in the store. Conference was great! I missed it last year - having a baby and all. It's nice (most times) to have family around. Glad you had such a fun weekend!
