Only in the Eastern Time Zone

We had our delicious tomato soup, and grilled cheese sandwiches (on sour dough with Wisconsin sharp cheddar). This years looked better, but I didn't realize last year's picture wasn't very good.

Sunday we got up and made cinnamon rolls. We might make that a tradition, but only if we live on the east coast where conference doesn't start until noon.

Reuben did really well, and even sat quietly to listen a couple times. Justin and I were uplifted with the messages of hope, unity, ways to find true happiness, and encouragement to enjoy today. We are considering moving to Walden Pond. We figure one extreme to the other might help us find the middle ground. If you missed General Conference, or are interested in how I spent my weekend you can watch it here.

My favorites:
Saturday Morning L. Tom Perry, and Dieter F. Uchtdorf, and
Saturday Afternoon listening to the choir, Joseph B. Wirthlin, Jeffrey R. Holland, David A. Bednar
Sunday Morning Henry B. Eyring, Thomas S. Monson.
Sunday Afternoon Russell M. Nelson, William D. Oswald, andQuentin L. Cook
General Relief Society Meeting Dieter F. Uchtdorf
