Stake Conference + Colorado Sunsets

I love Colorado; it is so gorgeous.
I took these last night at my parents with my iPhone 4.

This weekend was a good one.
We had stake conference and D. Todd Christofferson came; he's in the quorum of the 12.
Elder Hillier of the 70 was there, the Denver temple President Baer, and the mission president and wife.
We attended both Saturday night and Sunday morning sessions.  They were both great.
My brother Zach sang with the other youth in our ward "As Sisters in Zion" and whatever the other part to that song is...
I remember singing that at EFY and growing up in Young Women's.
It is weird I'm not in Young Women's anymore.
I am much younger than most of the ladies in Relief Society; sometimes I feel like I'd connect better to them, haha. I'm 23 and they are in high school...lol.
Oh, and whenever I would sing in church with the other Young Women, my friend Amberley and I would laugh 99% of the time. Somehow we cannot be reverent when one needs to be. Man singing in church was torturous when you have a case of the giggles, and we got them a lot haha. We were doomed really when one of us broke down...

There are 44 missionaries serving from our stake - Loveland, Colorado stake that is.
And 1 is my sister! I wrote her this week so, so far so good in writing her often in the new year!

My German grandma, Omi, has been cooking amazing meals.
{She is staying here for 6 weeks to help with my mom's recovery as she just had hip surgery}
She loves to cook and for as long as I've known her, she has loved to cook.
For dinner last night, she made amazing bacon wrapped pork, rice, gravy, broccoli, rolls, and cucumber salad. I remember eating cucumber salad at her house in Alabama when I was younger.
I don't think I liked it when I was younger but now I do.
I now have the recipe and same with the pork one.
She also made an amazing chicken salad sandwich with fruit for lunch after Stake Conference.
And raspberry cream pie for dessert!
I can't wait until she makes dumplings, schnitzel, goulash, spaetzle, and other yummy German foods.

On a less food-ly note, my brothers and I watched Harry Potter 7 Part 1.
We will finish and watch the second part sometime probably this week, maybe today?

  7. I am so jealous you get to work with the young women- I have always wanted that calling! And I get a mad case of the giggles when singing in public too- I have no business being in our ward choir!
