We also participated in our (new) Conference tradition of stopping at the local soda pop and candy store, Rocket Fizz, to pick out some treats. They have the biggest selection of soda in the world! (Not makin this up). Austin chose Peanut Butter and Jelly pop...yikes...and I stayed with the safer but still unusual Black Cherry Cream Soda.
|we also ate pizza, cheez-its, and coke.|
we felt like crap lol.
We gave Natalie a Kazoozle, a sort of licorice candy, and she went to TOWN on it! Unfortunately, when it was time to take it away we had a full-fledged fuh-reak out. She wailed and threw herself back in despair for a while. I held her and waited for her to be done, saying, "This is completely unnecessary, Natalie. Let me know when you're ready to be nice."

The actual Conference itself was, as always, completely wonderful. It's so nice to refresh our Gospel perspective and be reminded of the things we can be working on to better ourselves and our families. I love that the church is set up just like in the scriptures, with a prophet at the head who speaks with God to give direction to the world and twelve apostles who support and sustain him, and also witness of the reality of Jesus Christ. My testimony has grown and I already feel like a better mother and wife. It was fun to watch it with Natalie too, contrary to what we thought would be a very distracting and less spiritual experience. She's FINALLY feeling completely better and we LOVE having our happy baby back. We were not cut out to deal with difficult children (knock on wood).
