Conference time -

"We may not know when or how the Lord’s answers will be given, but in His time and His way, I testify, His answers will come. For some answers we may have to wait until the hereafter. This may be true for some promises in our patriarchal blessings and for some blessings for family members. Let us not give up on the Lord. His blessings are eternal, not temporary."
Robert D. Hales

I love Fall, I love General Conference. Those two came together over the last few weeks and it has been great. Our tradition has always been to go to Salt Lake on Conference Saturday but this year it fell through - there is always next year though:) However, we did end up having a great conference weekend full of apple pickin' and apple sauce makin' - - -

First was women's conference - we made it down to the conference center and had a great night!

This was outside Blue Lemon - an amazing restaurant - good end to a great night!

Then came the time in between conference sessions - - - -

Samu loves to pose lately - such a cool kid

Doesn't that look awesome!!

Sunday night we made a little fire and just enjoyed the evening -

The fire pic is for Gabby - his words after the shot, "Did you seriously just take a picture of the fire?" - - You better believe I did Gabby, you better believe . . .

Could little Jacob get any cuter - - I think not.

Mason and Dad enjoying a moment - -

The boys love "the tractor"

and I love them . . .

The end of summer.

It snowed today. Love it.

Because of that . . . it might be best to show you the last of my great summer -

My brothers turned into carpenters - who knew:)

these boys did - i think they found heros.

I mean - seriously

It also included a lot of swinging -

and the best faces there could possibly be -

We had to get in a visit to the duck pond -

(the cool Californians - - -)

My mom loved it more than the boys -

It might be because she brought enough bread to feed thousands of ducks - it went on forever.

until she could take the teasing no longer - - - -

We also got the chance to see Kenny Loggins -


then it came time to say goodbye to Chard's#2 - - -seriously miss this boy, who wouldn't?!

Best moment of the night . . . when Super Lela came out to play - so great!
