Conference weekend

We had a fun, very productive, and uplifting Conference weekend. On Friday Dani and I went with Grandma up to Angle Orchard to pick apples. We had a fun picnic and then we picked 4 huge boxes of apples. Dani didn't really love picking apples but she liked driving the "tractor" with the boy who helped us. Abby learned how to climb this weekend! We had to block the TV with chairs because she kept changing the channel or turning the TV off on us. She discovered that she could get around our little barricade and have even more fun. Abby loves President Monson! Dani wanted to help with everything! She was so cute and determined to do everything that we were doing. She had to do it herself. And she did a really good job too. Abby helped Daddy shine his shoes. We made cinnamon rolls on Sunday morning and pigged out all through conference. Dani loved getting her hands dirty. We finished 35 jars of apple pie filling, 6 dehydrators of dried apples, and 3 huge pans of cinnamon rolls (that are all gone now) Abby decided that she was done having people spoon feed her and she is ready to do it herself!

Ok, so you totally look like the best Mom. Honestly, you need to share with me what you do with them. I get sick of the same ole ring around the rosies and stuff ;) and CONRATULATIONS on being pregnant with #3!!! I just found out a few weeks ago when we were visiting Lee and Ellen. Three seems a litlte crazier to me than two, but everyone's kids are different!
