This weekend we had General Conference.
This is the Prophet and President of the Church, Thomas S. Monson. They broadcast from Salt Lake City and we watch talks from the prophet and from apostles and other general authorities of the church.
We set up both monitors on the computer so we could see it from anywhere in the kitchen or family room.
One good thing about watching from home, you don't have to get dressed up and you can sit in really comfortable chairs and relax and really concentrate on what's being said.
After a few sessions we came up with some games to help the children pay attention. Here's Ashton playing M&M Bingo and he only has one square to go. Can't get his last word, "Trials".
And of course we had the family tradition, which Mary-Anne started for us, of waffles with ice cream and toppings.
It was great to have Tianna and her family with us to watch conference. Their family is smaller now with Jarom and Amery both off to college but they still keep us busy whenever they come to visit. Never a dull moment.
