on saturday morning we had some friends over for waffles and to watch conference. we tried to keep the kids occupied with trucks and cars – sometimes it worked, other times it wasn’t as successful. it was nice to have a backyard for them to play in.
we also had my parents over for lunch and conference on sunday. really, there’s nothing better than friends, family, food and conference! isn’t it incredible that we have a living prophet of god on the earth?! we are so blessed to be taught what god would have us know today, especially when the adversary seems to be working overtime to confuse us of what is right and wrong and distract us from what is most important. i am grateful for the truths of god that prophets continue to teach (as they always have), that are unchanging despite the trends of society. i don’t know what i would do without the guidance of gospel truths, along with the spirit, to teach (or usually remind) me what i can be doing differently or better in my life.
my friend mindy’s family has a tradition that she has introduced to us in denver (since all her family is in utah). during the priesthood session all the women and kids get together for soup and homemade donuts (obviously the donuts are the main attraction). the guys join in the fun after the priesthood session (and hope there is food… especially donuts left) and share one thing they learned from the priesthood session. it was a lot of fun and dave ate about 15 mini donuts…that sounds like something i would do with my mega sweet tooth! i think it turned his world upside down when mindy told him they were made out of potatoes aka spudnuts.
