General Conference Weekend!

Conference weekend is one of my favorite weekends that occurs not once... but twice a year! For those of you who don't know what general conference is, it's a world-wide gathering of all the members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (the mormon church). The prophet and president of our church, President Thomas S. Monson and his counselors and apostles speak and give us direction and guidance. It is broadcast all over the world on the internet, tv, radio, etc. for those who can't gather at the conference center in Salt Lake City, Utah. For more information visit the official church website.

Every time this weekend rolls around we try to start some of our own traditions to make it special and fun! On Saturday we had a "pillow and blanket party" and made homemade donuts for the morning session and homemade pizza for lunch. It was awesome. On Sunday we went to a friend's house for Belgian waffles and watched the morning session with them. Then we went home and cooked up a delicious steak dinner and watched the afternoon session at home. It was such a fun weekend. Between all the cooking and watching conference we squeezed in a few walks to get some fresh fall air and to keep Juneau sane. :)

Oliver's first general conference

We pretty much snuggled all day long. It was so nice.
I tried a new donut recipe: baked donuts. HUGE mistake. They are supposed to be healthier, which in most cases is awesome. But, in this case... healthy donuts = not very tasty and not worth the effort.

Check out Oliver's sweet bald spot.... haha!

All bundled up for our afternoon walk.
