Conference Weekend

I only have a minute, but wasn't Conference wonderful?! I do have to admit that due to Nate's half-marathon on Saturday we haven't watched those sessions yet - but, Sunday was great. We really enjoyed watching and spending a whole day together as a family. The highlight was really President Monson's talk at the end of the morning session. We had all been taking notes, doing the conference workbooks, etc. during the rest of the session, but for his talk we put everything else down, put the baby to bed and just sat together on the couch to "listen to a Prophet's voice." It was such a beautiful and inspiring message. I felt loved and encouraged and so GRATEFUL for a living prophet. At one point I said to Nate "we should watch this talk every day!" It just contained so many things that we need to remember! I wish every day was Conference.

But, today we are back to the grind. I hope that you all have a wonderful week, and for those of you here in New England - go outside! These colors won't last too much longer :)

Holy Cow -- I thought I had you on my Google Reader and I just clicked over here to see why you hadn't been posting lately. Gee! I have missed a TON and now you ARE in my Google Reader. I will be spending a good chunk of time catching up now. Yippee!
Love you.

Conference was great and President M's talk was our favorite, too. Hopey ou're enjoying all the fall colors out there. We miss that about NY so much. It's now solidly fall, isn't it? I tried to get away with short sleeves today and was reminded very quickly that it is indeed October. California October, but still. Time to grab a jacket.
