It was also general conference weekend. This usually consists of Roger and I trying to watch sessions while the girls yell at us to do something with them. This time however, they were very into the conference bingo. They were doing a good job of listening for the words on their cards. Every time someone would mention President Gordon B. Hinckley, Avery would say, "that's the teacher who died." It was very, very sweet and I don't think President Hinckley would mind being called the teacher. During the second Sunday session we were all candied out so we painted fingernails and toenails instead of bingo. As it turns out this was an excellent conference activity. The girls were fairly quiet so I listened and painted at the same time! It's been rare in the last five years to feel as uplifted and encouraged as I have after this session of conference. What a great weekend!
Both girls chose pink fingernails, Avery has green toenails (painted, not sick) and Ashby purple toenails.
