General Conference Weekend

I really wanted to make an effort this year to have our family sit down and watch all four sessions of General Conference (or at least sit in the same room). I found that the internet has a wealth of information for mom's trying to keep kids entertained during Conference and armed with a load of coloring pages, activities, toys, and food I set up on Saturday morning

We cleared everything out of the living room and let the kids
occupy whatever space they wanted

Can you tell who my easygoing kid is? At this point Lincoln was
running in circles around the room

Food, Food, and more Food- that was my trick for getting the
kids to stay in the living room with me :)

Mom and dad came over Sunday morning and we had a big brunch (complete with ham and cheese souffle- made me miss the Devlins). The kids loved having Grandma and Grandpa to play with all morning although I think Linc distracted Grandma through most of the session! All in all I would say we did pretty well, hopefully it will continue to get better as the kids get older!
