Our Conference weekend!

We had a fun conference weekend. 

We started our Saturday, having my family over in the morning for breakfast. My dad and I cooked the breakfast.

Here are the chefs.
What does this picture remind you of? A famous painting maybe? 
I'm not so sure that I am standing on the right side of my dad to match which side the woman in the painting is standing on but, oh well. We tried.
My hair is greasy because I hadn't showered yet but you can see me in my cute new glasses. 

After breakfast, we watched conference on the Internet. It was wonderful—so inspiring.

That night, Krista came over to visit us with Morganne and Baby Kurt. They spent the night at our place.

Here is Kurt and Kurt.

Ayla always loves to be close to Kurt but she scares the poor little guy.

And she can't get enough of Morganne. She follows her like her little shadow. I love to see how happy she is to play with Morganne.

Kurt in his pack and play. Isn't he so adorable?

Time for bed. Morganne in her PJ's.

This was Sunday morning after I made waffles for everyone and got Ayla dressed. I love the T-shirt she is wearing. It has little monkey heads all over it. I couldn't resist it when I was at Dollar Tree. It only cost me a dollar.

Ayla and Morganne playing during the first session of conference.

I thought this picture was cool of Morganne getting up to leave.

Here is happy little Kurt. Happy boy!

Kurt and Ayla look like they could be twins with their red hair. So cute.
Don't mind my handsome hubby's hair. Like I said this was the morning session of conference.

Morganne got in on the fun. Too cute. I love this picture.

Krista and her little family left after the first session of conference. It was so nice to have them spend the night with us. Not only did I love their company, but it helped me realize what I need to prepare for when Leah and her little family stay with us next month. I also loved that I had Ayla in her pack and play in our room for the night. I always love to have her right by me. I hate that she needs to be in the other room but it is best for her and for Kurt and I to have our own rooms.

We had a wonderful conference weekend and I absolutely loved every minute of conference. There was so many words of comfort in the recession. Some of my favorite talks were from:
Elder Hale—he spoke on needs and not wants.
President Erying—he spoke on adversity and so did a lot of other general authorities. It was wonderful.
Elder Holland gave a beautiful Easter talk and talked about adversity and that we never have to be alone.
And of course, I loved to hear from President Monson. I love how he counseled us at the very end of conference about the dangers of Satan. You could really feel the love he has for all of us.

I could put everyone on this list for one reason or another. They were all inspiring. I love conference. I always feel so renewed and ready to take on the next 6 months until the next conference. I know the things I need to work on. Even though I feel guilty because I know I need to do those things. It is so nice to be reminded of those things.

Cute post!
I LOL at the first picture.. I don't think I've ever seen you without a smile..

Dollar store sells tees? It shows how much I go there..

I loved conference also. I think it gets better each time for me. Maybe I need it more? I don't know.
I tried to blog about the talks.. but I just couldn't.. I loved every single one!!!

Elisabeth always calls conference, "Pajama Church." I love that Heavenly Father loves us so much that we can feel the Spirit even in our PJ's! Cute pictures as always. :)

That top picture is such a crack up. It does look like the famous picture!

Conference was wonderful - It is hard for me to pick favorited because they are all so good.

P.S. I am putting together the Spring Swap partners today and I wasn't sure by your comment if you wanted to be a part of it. We actually need one more person because we have an odd # right now so I am hoping you are a "yes"!
E-mail me @ cheriebakow@hotmail.com and let me know if you want to be a part of the swap!

I also really enjoyed conference even though it was just Chad and I. Looks like you had a wonderful time with your family.

I'm really likin' your new glasses, they're very flattering. Wish I spent conference with family - I was stuck at work ALL weekend. I'm just now starting to listen to the talks online - but I agree with you, it's so important to be reminded of the important things in life.

Sounds like you had a great weekend. You mentioned waffles again, and now you are making me really hungry.

I know that Elison loves it when my 2 nieces come over. They were here sunday night and they loved elie just as much as she loves them. Although she did scare them too when they were younger.

I bet your getting excited too for Leah. That will be so fun for you!
