General Conference! (by the Bubbers King)

Guess what!?

P1270287

Last week it was General Conference for our church!

P1270258

So we spent Saturday and Sunday listening to our awesome Prophet and Apostles.

P1270285

As usual, my favorite parts were the songs!!

IMG_0730

And this time around, I saw Mommy taking pictures with Daddy’s iPhone…

IMG_0733

…  So I charmed her out of it to take a few pictures of my OWN! :)

IMG_0725

This is Pee-pah.  She is my favorite stuffed animal ever.

IMG_0723

This is Mommy.  She is my favorite Mommy ever.

IMG_0703

This is Daddy.  He is my favorite Daddy ever.

IMG_0698

This is one of the speakers.  I don’t really know who he is.  But I’m sure he is my favorite ever.

P1270264

The Boots slept through most of the sessions.

P1270271

But when he was awake, he was his usual chipper self!

P1270277

Which was amazing, since he was sick and hacking up a lung most of the time.

P1270280

Poor little Boots.

P1270292

His favorite thing was sneaking into the computer chair.

P1270290

And touching forbidden fruit.

P1270300

“Hello!  I’m totally innocent.  Can’t you tell?”

P1270295

He even tried to find home row!

P1270294

But when he turned off Conference, we had to intervene.

P1270320

Mommy and I were sick, too.  So Daddy was wonderful to take care of us all.

P1270323

On Sunday, he brought in my bean table so I could play while we listened.

P1270326

And when they sang “The Spirit of God” at the end of the morning session on Sunday, it was AWESOME.  I told Mommy I felt the Holy Ghost the whole time!

P1270328

I think the Boots did, too, but he got distracted by the alluring computer chair.

IMG_0750

We ended up missing the last session on Sunday, because we took the Boots to the Walk-in Clinic.  His cough was so bad, we were really worried.

IMG_0748

So they x-rayed the little guy and he had “bronchialitis”.

P1270424

So Mommy and Daddy learned how to give him breathing medicine.

P1270427

And he eventually learned to enjoy it!

P1270339

Then we enjoyed our visiting wildlife.

P1270336

I really love all of God’s creations.

P1270332

It was the perfect ending to another great Conference weekend!

General Conference! (by the Bubbers King)

PICT0167 edited

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

PICT0159 edited

But you see, the Mormon Tabernacle Choir is singing.

PICT0160

And they need me to direct them.

PICT0169 edited

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

PICT0182

(Mommy can still get me to smile).

PICT0210 edited

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.

PICT0111 edited

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

PICT0105 edited

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

PICT0106 edited

So he gave Mommy the “evil eye”.

PICT0107

And tried to get warm.

PICT0193 edited

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.

PICT0082 edited

And I always look forward to the choir.

PICT0066 edited

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

But you know what really made this Conference special?

PICT0096 edited

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.

PICT0086

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.

PICT0158

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