This Weekend

Sometimes, a lot of the time lately, I don't feel like blogging.  Today, I remembered NieNie.  I remembered how she inspires me to write.  If I ever feel like I have nothing to write about, I read her words and look at her pictures, and somehow, it brings out this desire to write--even if it's really about nothing of importance.

General Conference was wonderful this weekend.

L was sick on Friday.  I had just changed her diaper before going into Target to go birthday shopping for G, who turns 15 tomorrow.  When we finished shopping and I pulled her out of the car, my hand was very wet.  I couldn't, for the life of me, figure out where the moisture came from, but she was soaking all up her back.  It was then that I realized that she had created the moisture with no apparent effort.  EWWWW!  I now had it on my left hand as well as on the pocket of the vest I had borrowed from DJ earlier that morning.

I also noticed, as I pulled her from the cart and kissed her head that both her belly, under my fingers, and head, under my lips, were very warm.  The shopping trip came to an abrupt halt, and I will have to shop for T's birthday another day next week.

I measured her temperature when I got home and found that she was at least 103.5.

We had invited friends to come join us for Sunday's Conference broadcast, but I thought I had better inform them as to the ill baby, so they could decide if they really wanted to come.  We still ended up with friends here.  It was a great time!

We had the usual Sunday morning Conference feast--donuts, hot cocoa with peppermint ice cream, fruit salad (I did something a little different with it this year, and it was yummy....I'll share later).  For lunch we had two kinds of soup--taco and potato (the kind out of the packets you get at the store) with ham and cheese added.  Oh, we also had rolls.  G talked me into making cinnamon rolls (I have gotten permission from my friend Mandy to share the recipe here too, so I will here in a couple days), so we each had two of those also.

There were so many good talks.  I took notes Saturday morning.  Although I had a sick baby to tend on Saturday, which I thought was going to be a total bummer, it ended up being a great blessing.  I got to watch conference alone.  Everyone else was at soccer games.  It was delightful!  I loved President Uchtdorf's talk.  Here it is, just in case you missed it:

I love the part about how we should be spending our time.  I'm going to work on this!

I loved Elder Uchtdorf's talk best too! Sorry to hear about L, poor thing. Hope she feels better soon. It must have been nice to share conference with friends. It seems we're doing all we can just keeping our kids up, fed, and quiet!
