What a great General Conference! I particularly enjoyed President Holland's talk on angels. I cried a lot during it. It is hard for little kids to understand why moms cry when they are feeling really happy. There were so many good talks. Abe's brother Stuart and his daughter Lauryn came down from Portland for the weekend and the two of them and Abe and Clark went downtown for the Saturday afternoon session.
Clark and Lauryn on their way to General Conference. I think our Portland friends brought the weather with them. Of course we LOVE it when we get rain, but I don't think they were quite as thrilled.
Stuart and Lauryn. The four of them sat on the middle level in about the middle. I was glad there was a choir of primary children singing for that session.
It was cousin mania this weekend. Here is Bethany with Kyli (Daniel and Lori's 2nd).
Here is Elinor with her cousin Gentri. These two have a special connection. They seem to understand each other.
These two pictures go together because, as you can see, the girl cousins are having a wonderful time being girls together. And Clark, as you can see, cannot stand it so he has escaped to the computer.
And these two pictures go together because I have spent a lot of time in the kitchen cooking this weekend and Faith has perched herself in her favorite spot. She loves to play with the water, soap and lotion and make a general mess of this corner. It was a vegetable soup in the pot that was pretty tasty, but maybe it just looks gross from this angle.
And I guess the whole weekend was just too much for little Cannon! He fell asleep with Abe just before the men headed off for Priesthood session.
