general women's conference

on saturday, september 24, mom and i went to general women's conference at the conference center in salt lake.  we went early and ate at the lion house before heading over to the church history museum.  i had never been to the museum before and it was quite interesting.  i'd like to take the kids there sometime.

hurried over to the conference center to get our seats for the meeting and ran into a dear old friend cristy and some of her family.  it was great to catch up with her.

after a quick drive back down to utah valley, we stopped and picked up amelia for ice cream.  she was excited to get to go out with the "girls".  grandma told her that when she turns 18 she can come to the conference center with us too. amelia quickly replied. "grandma, you'll be dead by then."  mom and i got a good laugh at that, but i hope my mom is around that long.  she is so wonderful and i love her dearly.

clara turns 1

my little clara turned one on september 15th.  it's hard to have your last child grow up.  i don't know if all moms have the same feelings, but part of me wants her to stay little forever, and another part of me (a very small part) gets excited when she does new things and reaches new milestones.  at any rate, i love her to pieces and am so glad she is part of my life.
