saturday night's all right

saturday night was our stake conference adult session. i felt really strongly that thomas and i needed to go. we don't always make it to the saturday night adult session of conference, even thought it's always the best session. it's often the session that gets ignored because it's on saturday night and it's hard to get a babysitter, and there are lots of other things scheduled for saturday night. we had a babysitter secured and then she canceled and we procured another one. oh the drama. but we persevered. 
our stake was lucky enough to elder edward dube of the seventy and his wife join us and it was great. there were no secrets revealed and no earth shattering personal moments, but the Spirit was very strong and i knew we were in the right place. i was able to make a list of new goals for myself and for the family. i'm glad that thomas and i always have the gospel to discuss with each other. we don't see eye to eye on many things(sports, interior design, exterior design, thermostat temperature, fast food restaurants, how to sit down on a seat with items already on it, tooth brush cup placement, best tom cruise movie, cup holders on sofas) but we always enjoy discussing the gospel with one another. i have felt an increase of the Spirit in our home in recent days. 
after the session, we got ice cream at a little ice cream parlor downtown. i certainly never turn down ice cream though i probably should. we both agree that cookies and cream is one of the best flavors. 

then we came home to this dream:
we close on our new house on wednesday!
