Hello, my friends!   I’m sorry I can’t stop to talk right now.

But you see, the Mormon Tabernacle Choir is singing.

And they need me to direct them.

Which is serious business.   (Although, if she tries hard enough…..)

Now, this means that we had General Conference weekend again.  And Mommy is a bit relieved to see that I don’t look too grown up now that I’m 2-and-a-half years old, compared to the last time we had General Conference and I was almost two years old.  (Though if you go back to last year, she’s not quite so relieved…..  And if you go back to a year-and-a-half ago, I look way too young, but at least I’m a consistent choir director).

As usual, we all really enjoyed Conference.

Mommy was sick, so she appreciated being able to rest as she watched the eight hours of Conference over two days.

Daddy was cold, because the thermostat is back to 65 degrees.

So he gave Mommy the “evil eye”.

And tried to get warm.

But despite illness and cold weather, we always look forward to hearing counsel from our Living Prophet and feel so blessed to have him, the 12 Apostles and other Priesthood leaders who receive revelation from God on our behalf.

And I always look forward to the choir.

And this time around, I even tried my hand at playing back-up for them.

But you know what really made this Conference special?

This little guy!

PICT0124 edited

He was almost four months old and it was his very first General Conference outside of the womb.

PICT0119 edited

True to his nature, he was as sweet as could be.

PICT0115 edited

And constantly smiling–even through his spit-up!

PICT0141 edited

He enjoyed the Prophet and Apostles, too. But I think what he really enjoyed…..

PICT0093 edited

Was watching me conduct.

With my stuffed snake.

PICT0094 edited

What?   Haven’t you ever seen the Mormon Tabernacle Choir being conducted with a multi-colored stuffed snake before?

PICT0153 edited

He also enjoyed lots of snuggles with his Daddy.

PICT0155

Daddy??  No, stop Daddy!!

PICT0156 edited

Phew, that was close!

PICT0157 edited

Daddy really does love Snuggles.

And so do we all!  Happy First General Conference, sweet Little Man!
