General Conference

We enjoyed a relaxing and uplifting General conference weekend a couple weeks ago.
This year, I borrowed an idea that I saw on-line to help the kids stay focused during conference.
We filled some jars with various kinds of candy and put key words on the jars. Whenever a key word was said, the kids got to get a piece of candy from the jar. If the "magic word" (Hyrum Smith) was said, the kids would get an ice cream sandwich from Dairy Queen on Monday!
It worked like a charm. The kids listened to EVERY talk given during conference! Even though no one said Hyrum Smith it was still a fun game.

I love treating Conference weekend like a holiday. With special homemade waffles with all the fixings, no meetings, and playing games between sessions. It's a great time to enjoy each other while strengthening our testimonies and learning from prophets and apostles.
We are already looking foreword to the next general conference holiday. Can't Wait!
