Carb Loading Conference Sunday

Our Conference tradition is to have homemade cinnamon rolls. Maybe someday they'll actually be done before the first session instead of right in the middle of it.

We also made pizza for dinner tonight. This picture might lead you to believe that I'm cooler than I really am. I can throw the dough up in the air, and most of the time I can catch it--but it in no way resembles a circle when I'm done with it. I mostly do it for the entertainment of the kids (and the entertainment of me). But it is a skill I'd like to learn. Anyone know how to successfully throw pizza dough??
Also, nostril shot!

Also, also, I loved Elder Holland's testimony of the Book of Mormon! (I'd link to it, but it's not up until Thurs.) And all the reminders to be more loving--something I definitely need to work on.

Lisa, Elder Holland's talk was my absolute favorite! I don't know about you, but I couldn't stop the water flowing from my eyeballs! :)
It was an awesome testimony...

P.S. I know where I'm headed for conference in April!

Amen Lis! Wasn't Elder Holland's testimony soooooooooooooooo powerful!? I definitely heard what you heard about being more loving...and also about learnig to determine when the spirit is speaking to me and to apply it daily in my life.
Looks like you guys had a great conference weekend. We have cinnamon rolls every conference weekend too, but ours are store bought. I am muy impressed with you. Do you have an awesome recipe for me to try? :)

Elder Holland's talk was also my favorite. If I'm being completely honest, I'm one of the people that he's referring to that really needs to make it a point to receive a real testimony of The Book of Mormon. For some reason, I have always had questions about it. But I really felt the spirit during his talk and have a renewed desire to keep studying and gain that unshakeable testimony for myself. Maybe his talk was meant for me??
Also, I was just looking at your book list on the side and wondered if you would recommend any of the books you have been reading. I'm always looking for a good book :)

Love the pizza action shot. And no, I have no clue how to toss a crust. I would however love to have some of your cinnamon rolls. They look divine!
