I heard the best thing this morning. A child wake up. Open the pantry door, pull out a cereal box, get a bowl from the "kid utensil" drawer, open the fridge and get out the milk, pour the cereal, pour the milk, and have his own "first breakfast". He later said, "You know when we are at a restaurant and you eat the food before dinner (appetizers)? That's what I had this morning." He didn't want to miss out on "Second Breakfast" of German Oven pancakes (aka "Dutch Babies") with strawberries, lemon juice, and brown sugar. I loved sitting all together and eating breakfast and Andy's "European" lunch of whole wheat "hazmat" crackers, cheese, deli meat, and cara cara oranges. I threw a little chocolate in there for dessert. You know just like the French.
After having conference running all day yesterday, and not catching much (on the first and second showing of each!) we really were able to sit and listen and get the kids to color a temple and some other activities provided by the primary. I look forward to playing conference bingo with the boys this afternoon.
President Monson is the man. We loved hearing Dad's re-telling of the "ear wiggle story" from last night's Priesthood session. And President Uchtdorf's airplane analogies. I also loved yesterday's choir version of "Praise to the Man", it was amazing!
P.S. Extra bonus - We tended our neighbors darling 5 month old baby girl this morning while her parents attended the morning session. P was thrilled to have a little baby to giggle at and the boys loved making her happy too. I loved having a baby fall asleep in my arms again and getting to hold her while she slept for more than an hour. Thank you S & L!
