Favorite Quotes from Conference Weekend

I haven't posted in over a month (shame on me) mostly out of sheer laziness. Also, I've been feeling less and less inclined to spend hours in front of the computer and more and more inclined to clean house. Strange I know. Not like me.

Anyway, here I am again to share some funny things that were said during conference. We spent Sunday with James's awesome family over at his Uncle Franklin and Aunt Kathleen's house. We stayed after to sit and gab because that's what we like to do, and in these conversations, some funny things were said.

After hearing me tell a crazy story about James:
"Have you ever seen a couple more suited to each other than these two?" -Aunt Kathleen
"Yeah - salt has pepper, and James has Charity." -Aunt Ann
(how sweet is that?)

When we drove the little kids home (they were having too much fun playing Guitar Hero to leave when their parents were ready to go), they were talking about "the most ferocious of the girls" they had been in a play with recently:
"Franklin, she could hit you with a pair of glasses and you would bruise. Okay?" - Linford. That was just so funny. I think you had to be there though, Linford had such attitude in his voice. Okay?

Then later:
"I'm flopping like a potato in the summer." - Linford again, master of the simile.

Conference is so great. I loved so many of the talks and I always love feeling the love and concern our leaders have for us. They are such wonderful examples of Christlike love and service. And of course, I love getting together with family and sharing food and stories and laughter. Ah, conference. I think it's my new favorite holiday. :)

(Thinking about it, conference really is a holiday - a holy day - a day (well, two) set apart for the edification of our souls. Yay for Mormon holidays!)

Yeah, conference is really the best. Especially with family. It was fun spending part of conference weekend with you. We should do that again sometime.

I love conference, too, although it's hard to stay focused with all of these yahoos running around . . . those quotes were funny. You and James should learn some Salt-N-Pepa songs. I can see it now . . .
