I love President Hinckley. I'm so glad he's able to speak to us still. What did you think about the parable of the pickle (Elder Bednar)? Maybe it's just me but I think the pickle is kind of a goofy food. Not very noble, if any food can be. (As far as picnic foods go, I'd consider the fruit salad noble). But I digress. I totally, totally agree with what he's saying and I get the analogy. I don't like pickles. Does that make me a bad person?
Don't answer that.
Even though I stayed busy I really and truly did listen to all 4 sessions and I loved them all. I particularly like Elder Scott's and Elder Holland's talks. The children enjoyed seeing and hearing President Hinckley.
I scrubbed kitchen cabinets during Conference. They look quite a bit better. It's all part of the lofty goal called "Getting the House Ready to Sell." Tomorrow we tackle the family room.
Bryce wore his Liverpool football jersey today. There is a patch on the front that looks like this:
The bird is the symbol of Liverpool, the mythical Liver bird ("liver" rhymes with driver). Cameron insisted on calling it a chicken, just to make Bryce mad. After the 10th time of accusing Bryce of wearing a hen on his shirt and laughing about it, Cameron pointed to himself and said, "Evil!" So if you see Bryce wearing his jersey, make sure to ask him about that mighty chicken on it.
Maybe Cameron was playing an April Fool's joke on his dad. I attempted to do a few tricks myself. I made Mary a card that didn't open and revised Tyce's chore list to include tasks such as "lick 100 stamps and put them on envelopes" and "pack your sleeping bag for school". Hilarious, right? Well, that's not all. I also glued some coins to the kitchen tile and told Bryce he'd dropped some money earlier. He said it was probably Mary or Tyce and made them pick them up for him! That one didn't work out as expected (though the kids were really annoyed someone had glued pennies to the floor, so if I'd been aiming to fool them it would've been great). Sheesh. I don't think anyone knew it was April 1st except for me. And possibly Cameron.
Harrison is in his crib shredding newspaper. Tyce left the comics section on the floor of their room and Harrison must have summoned the superpowers of Plastic Man to reach his arm down and around like that. I took the Kohl's ad away from him without a fight. I guess that's because he had a plan. He outsmarted me by pulling another piece of news from behind the crib.
Hope you're all doing well. I've changed my setting to allow anonymous comments, so if you want to show us some love, please feel free.
