Hi Everyone!!

It’s the Bubbers King here, to tell you about our weekend.

As Mommy says, it’s a special time again for our church.

Called General Conference!

PICT0082 edited and paper fixed

Do you know what that means?

PICT0071 edited

Let me explain it to you.

PICT0064 edited and paper fixed

Do you see him?

PICT0058 edited and paper fixed

He plays the humongous organ…..

PICT0053 edited and paper fixed

….. While the choir (and, at times, congregation) sing beautiful hymns.

PICT0093 edited and paper fixed

And do you see him?

PICT0094 edited and paper fixed

He’s God’s living Prophet.

We try very hard to listen to him and follow what he and the Apostles say.

We are so lucky to have them!

PICT0089 edited

Well, that’s all I can think of right now….. Did my explanation help at all?

PICT0103 edited

I hope so!

PICT0104 edited

Because now it’s time for snacks and cuddles with Dad.

See you later!!

Measuring Time by General Conference

PICT0278 edited

Every six months, our living Prophet and Apostles speak hope, faith and love to the entire world during General Conference.

It’s happening this weekend and every time it happens now, Charming and I look at each other and smile.

“You know what Bubbers was doing the last time we watched General Conference?” I ask him.

“Yeah,” he looks adoringly at the Little Man, “He was 11 months old and learning how to climb on his trampoline.”

“That’s right,” I laugh, following his gaze to our sweet son, “And do you remember the time before that? His very first Conference ever?”

“We were in our old house, he was 5 months old, and he rolled over for the first time,” Charming remembers in amazement.

You see in our house, we reckon time by General Conference.

And the next time General Conference rolls around, Bubbers will be almost 2 years old.

Holy smokes.

(Where’s the pause button on time??)

(If you find it, please let me know ASAP!)

This time around, our little Wooga man is almost 18 months old.

And he cannot get enough of his Daddy.

You see, Daddy just started graduate school and the Wooga man doesn’t get to see him as much as usual.

So when Woogies does get to see his Daddy, he doesn’t let him out of his sight! :)

PICT0272 edited

Something else he really loved was the children’s choir (just like his Mommy!).

PICT0263 edited

They sang the most touching songs.

PICT0259 edited

And Woogies watched the whole thing.

PICT0264 edited

And pulled out his cute dance moves that we love so much! :)

PICT0273 edited

Before going after the mouse.

PICT0243 edited

And at one point, I had to take advantage of the fact that he was holding still for longer than a millisecond.

PICT0230 edited

And try as he might.

PICT0234 edited

He couldn’t resist my goofy antics to get a smile. :):)

PICT0279 edited

And during the prayers…..

PICT0255 edited

Our hearts melted when he folded his arms so sweetly.

A new prophet

PICT0040 cropped & edited

This weekend was a very special General Conference for the Mormon world and Bubbers got his very own seat to watch it with us.

PICT0049 cropped

We couldn’t have been happier with how well he did through all eight hours of the Conference!

PICT0045 cropped

Not only did he really enjoy hanging out with his Mom and Dad…..

PICT0050 cropped & edited

But he also enjoyed conducting the Mormon Tabernacle Choir.

With both hands.

And we all loved the wonderful, inspiring talks from the apostles and leaders.

Especially from the new living prophet: President Thomas S. Monson

Heidi’s favorite: “Enjoy the doing more than the getting done.” (Elder Ballard speaking to young mothers)

Charming’s favorite: “Salvation is individual. Exaltation is familial.” (Elder Nelson)

Hardy har har

This weekend was General Conference. That means the whole Mormon world got to listen to our Prophets, Apostles and leaders from Salt Lake City. (As always, it was awesome).

Charming, Bubbers and I watched on the internet.

PICT0007 edited

Bubbers did surprisingly well through 8 hours in the same room.

PICT0009 edited

(With only one mishap).

Today was also special because Bubbers rolled over for the first time ever! Did we actually see it? Well, no… But one minute he was on his stomach, reaching for the strap of my camera. And the next minute he was on his back!

Since we didn’t see it, I’m willing to say it didn’t happen (it doesn’t count unless you see it, right?). But now we’ll be more vigilant to catch the real first time, next time.

Oh, and here’s some of Charming’s humor…

“I’m Heidi watching General Conference.”

“I’m the Little Man watching General Conference.”

PICT0005 cropped

“I’m me watching General Conference.”

Breaking news on the snot front: Bubbers is oh so close to being over his first stuffy nose. Thank you to everyone for your kind well-wishing! Needless to say, none of us will miss “the boogerator”.
