this past weekend was general conference weekend and we had the most wonderful time listening to modern day prophets give revelation from our loving Heavenly Father. if you didn't get a chance to listen, then you can watch, listen to, or download videos from the past two days here. we really are so blessed to be able to listen to our prophets from anywhere in the world, including our comfy couch--right where we were parked for the past two days!
our weekend started on friday with a family dinner with rob's aunts, uncles, cousins and their kids. we all met up at sweet tomatoes in sandy and had the best time catching up. rob's aunt and uncle, who now live in germany, set it up and we were so grateful to be able to spend time with them while they were in town. i strategically placed myself at the end of the table where all the babies were. hehe. i even got to hold sweet isaac for a little bit! he was the sweetest baby and just stared at me the whole time with that look on his face saying, "who is that really smiley girl who is holding me?" rob and i got a kick out of how much hair this little guy had!
we also got to see sweet aspen! man has she grown up since we last saw her at elise and sam's wedding last september. she was squealing the whole time and just looking around at everyone and smiling her sweet smile!
l o v e this picture of both of them!
robbie honestly has one of the nicest families i have met. that is one of the million reasons why i love him so much! i am so blessed to have married him and to be able to call them family! we always enjoy any time that we get to spend with his family and send them all our love! we were so sad to say goodbye!
after dinner, we had a mission reunion to get to. they are always around general conference time. he actually had two that night, but dinner ran late so we missed the first one. they live in draper though so hopefully we can make it up there to visit them one of these days. robbie's other mission president--president and sister palmer--flew in from new zealand and so it was very special to be able to visit with them. i secretly love going to robbie's mission reunions, even though i can count on one hand the number of people i know, because i love to hear what his mission presidents say about him--that he was such an outstanding missionary and that i honestly and truly have an amazing husband who loves the Lord and shows that through his service in the church. of course, i already know this about robbie but i love any opportunity i get to brag about him or to hear other people brag about how awesome he is. i love this guy!
p.s. you're loving the long hair. i knew it.
saturday was the start of general conference (i'm so lame and didn't take any pictures /: my bad). my two sisters and their boyfriends came over and we set up in our tiny living room to watch the two sessions. we enjoyed a huge and yummy breakfast of german pancakes, fruit, bacon, sausage, mini donuts, chocolate milk and any other food rachel could get from the creamery (; it was a wonderful day of conference and we were excited to hear two new temples announced in cedar city, utah and rio de janeiro, brazil! on sunday, rachel and zach came over for the morning session before heading to slc for the afternoon one. our favorite talk was given by elder l. whitney clayton about marriage. one of our favorite quotes from his talk: "marriage is a gift from God to us. the quality of our marriage is a gift from us to God." it was such an inspiring talk and rob and i are so grateful we made the decision to be married for time and all eternity last april! i am truly the happiest i have ever been and somehow each day just keeps getting better and better! i truly am the luckiest girl in the whole world!
man, it has been such a wonderful weekend! if only school didn't have to continue tomorrow... (5 more days!)
