My Funny Girl

Kelley asked me the other day:  "Remember in the olden days when we would go to Grandma and Grandpa's for Conference and Holidays?"  My parent's live in Fillmore and the last time we were up there was for New Years.  It's funny how kids pick up on phrases like "the olden days" and translate them into 2-3 months ago.  Anyway, Kelley is so excited to go up for Conference because "they have a big table and they fill it full of food and we play Bingo with candy".  This came up because I was watching BYU TV and an old conference report came on.  So since then she keeps asking and making sure we are going up there.  One time I asked her "What if they didn't have any food this time?"  She didn't know what to say.  However I think I can say Mission Accomplished (for now!)  My kids love General Conference because it's FUN!  There's food, good company and a great time.  I love Conference and hope my kids grow up enjoying it too.  It's been a challenge since we had kids to get all four sessions in, but we still try every time.

Also, funny note on Tyler.  Today I hear *sniff, sniff*  Mom: Do you need a tissue? (Boogers also draining down his face) Tyler: No *sniff, sniff*...

I love conference too. My kids love it too, we have always made it a great party day and we have played bingo with them during the sessions and they would get treats if they got bingo.
Have a super weekend.
