I love Conference time. It comes just twice a year. I enjoy hearing all the talks. I love the announcements, this 179th Conference, 5 new Temples! I appreciate the inspiring music. I especially enjoy our family traditions.

1. Conference. We watch all the sessions available and the men attend Priesthood meeting. The week before Conference, we watch the womens session, either Relief Society or Young Womens. This year we started taking notes in our Conference journals. They are only for Conference time. Meredith did way the best at this! It will be interesting to look back and know where you were and who you were with, which speakers made the biggest impact on you. How you felt. It will be great !!

2. FOOD. We love snack, treats and food at Conference time. In our family, each member who will be with mce, picks one treat. We then co-ordinate the food, purchase the groceries on the Friday before Conference and prepare to vegg with all the great food. We have co-ordinated, since the year that we had 5 chocolate treats. Hard to believe, but it was just too much of a good thing.

3. Puzzles. They really keep your head available for Conference. You can be busy and still pay attention. And it is fun!

This year there were 4 or 5 and then sometimes 7 or 8 of us at each session. We missed so many of our family members, it was kind of sad. But everyone here was old enough or young enough to really enjoy it and feel the good spirit, especially CTR, who mainly slept, ate and etc. the whole time. He was a good boy. Did you have a great time at Conference like we did?
