December 9th - Stake Conference & A Christmas Party

We had stake conference this morning, so we were up and off this morning.  I am so looking forward to our regular meetings moving to morning with the new year.  It is nice to get up, get dressed, and go to church.  It is also nice to then have an afternoon - to maybe even take a nap! 

Conference was good.  Elder Posey and his wife spoke.  He is the new temple president, but had served previously as an area seventy and has been to our conference before.  He is a very entertaining speaker and we enjoyed it.  We also enjoyed his wife.  Among other things, the stake presidency spoke about some of the stake goals for this year.  One of them relates to preparedness and I feel good that we have started focusing on that more this year.  I will use that when I do the weekly email.

We had a nice afternoon.  I just fixed us some soup and grilled cheese for lunch and then actually got in a short nap.  In between, I did some family history, read a little, and enjoyed the afternoon.

At 6:00, we went to the bishop's house for a small social.  They had invited the bishopric, execute secretary, and clerk, and families, as they do each year.  It was really nice to eat a good dinner and then sit around and chat.  And, I might add, laugh a lot!

So, this has been a very nice and productive Sabbath Day.
