Conference & Quilting!

Well, this has been an awesome weekend. Not only was Matt home all day on Saturday... Well minus priesthood session. But we had a great time watching conference. We don't have T.V. so we had to watch it on a tiny screeen on the computer but it was still awesome. What was really amazing is how Jonas behaved through almost all of it. It was also the first time in a long time that we actually got to watch all the sessions. It was just what we needed. Anyway here are some shots of the last couple days!
Matt and Jonas during the Satuday afternoon session. Jonas looks so thrilled, or maybe he's just listening really hard!

On another note, while Matt was at priesthood session I got to give a sewing lesson! I taught my friend here how to Stipple and Bind a Quilt that she's making for her new edition, set to arrive in August! Anyway, it was fun and omigosh can I just say she was so good at stippling!

Here she is pinning her quilt just before she stippled.

Here she is actually stippling it...
And here is the almost finished project!! (she just needs to finish hand stitching the binding!!) Anyway I tought it was a lot of fun to share a little knowledge that I been taught. (thanks Camille! Your Stippling tutorial came in handy! Oh and not to mention teaching me all that I know about Quilting!)
Anyway now back to conference. This is Matt and Jonas wrestling right before the morning session started.
Jonas fell asleep about half way through, and can I just say he never falls asleep like this I always have to be standing up if I want him to go to sleep while I'm holding him, I almost didn't want to put him in his bed!
I promise we did listen but we had some playtime also. Jonas needed to be entertained!
Suprisingly his pants kept him busy for a good half hour!

Matt also need to be entertained... or maybe it was Wyatt... I don't know, I guess they kept each other busy

Jonas gives Wyatt the nastiest kisses, good thing we just gave him a bath!

HEY!!! Sorry I didn't ever get back to you after my trip to Targhee, I checked my email up in Ogden, and then when I came home I forgot all about it! But sorry that I didn't give you more of a heads up--sometime we definitely need to connect though. I would just love it. So, hey--I'm just about to start a quilt! I've never really done it before, so I'm super excited. My sister a pro, so she's going to help me, so I'm going to pick out fabrics today! YAY!

Looks like you had a very exciting weekend. I wish I could have watched all of the sessions. I was lucky to get one in.

Okay, I cannot get over that picture of Jonas and Wyatt!! It would be gross if it weren't so darn cute!! You guys sure did well with that kid- he's adorable! I'm also quite proud of you for teaching a quilting class. Way to go! The quilt turned out fabulous!

Hey if you are giving lessons sign me up! I booked my plane tickets home today!!! hurray! (but ouch, prices suck) I get home july 19 and leave august 16. But for a week I'll be in Waterton, a week I'll be in Edmonton, and a week I'll be in Taber. Sigh. You guys look like your doing so well! I miss you! California is lonesome.
