Just recently, I promised myself to take more pictures of the everyday?
I don’t know what happened to me in the last year.
I was the girl who carried her camera everywhere she went, and now all the sudden I forget to take it to my Nephew’s baby blessing?
(I did get a few later in the evening, but it was getting dark; still adorable little Hank)
Maybe I was worried about being “that girl.” You know the one who always has her camera in your face.
Maybe I was worried that my back would get worse from lugging that camera around.
Then I remembered I like being that girl, and who cares about my back.
Memories are more important to me.
So… I will be trying to do some photo dumps around here; hopefully once a week.
I will share pics from my big girl camera, and my iphone. You should be able to decipher the two. If not; I must not be much of a photographer with my big girl camera.
I will just be dumping pictures here that remind me of great times.
Like General Conference weekend; for example.
General Conference is a weekend for us to gather in our homes as members of the LDS church to listen to our leaders via; tv, internet, or radio.
We played a fun game this weekend.
I filled bowls with different pieces of candy and a word that they might hear from our leaders. When they heard it they could pick that candy to eat. This made them listen.
There was lots of time spent jumping between sessions on Saturday. Of course in pajamas, because that’s how we roll on Conference Weekend.
Jex is putting to use what he learns in tumbling.
On Saturday, Jonathan took the boys to dinner and I took the girls.
We went to Kneaders. I laughed when Stella bit the head off her ghost cookie and said, “look, it’s Mike Wisouski.”
Stella also spent the weekend braiding my hair. She would braid it while we listened to Conference.
She is getting really creative.
We made monster cookies. Our version of Monster cookies is any cookie recipe and dump in whatever goodie you have.
caramel bits, reeses pieces, chocolate chips, and toffee pieces. YUM!!
We ended the weekend with FHE on Monday.
We used a sponge to talk to our kids about soaking up the gospel and sharing it with others. When a sponge is full, there is always extra water to share.
It’s weekends like these that I don’t want to forget.
Stay tuned for more memories from this week.
