Weekend Update

This weekend was nice. It was General Conference weekend, which is when members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints watch a broadcast for eight hours on a weekend (not all at once) of our church leaders speaking. This conference occurs once in the spring and once in the fall. It's something we look forward to, and is a very uplifting experience.

Besides that, I had a full weekend. On Saturday, I had an aunt date with my nephew. He wanted to go ice skating, since he had never been before.

After that, we met up with my nieces and my sister, Katherine, at Washtenaw Dairy - the best ice cream place in Ann Arbor.

This summer I'm going to ride in a starlight bike ride in Colorado. I saw a tutorial online for how to make a "galaxy" t-shirt, so I made one this weekend. Katherine made one too. Here are some pictures:

Mine is on the left. It was a really fun project!

I also made some cupcakes this weekend. Because they were for a baptism of my friend's son, I made some special chocolate suckers to put in them. CTR means "choose the right" and is a motto kids learn in primary.

And besides all of that, I got to spend time with this cute little guy:

It was a nice weekend! How was yours?

Since you had all my kids I had a lovely day Saturday. Lol. Thanks! They look forward to their Aunt dates and it means a lot to me that they are so close to you guys.
I did about the same things as you since I was around you all weekend in some capacity. Other than that I washed laundry, made a Pintrest project of "Dinner Time Conversations Ideas". I'll be sharing some of the kids answers to these questions in the future since they are hilarious. That's about it! Fun seeing you so much this weekend!
