Hooray! It is October! My dear friend Shena Switzer loves October. So last year at conference time we decided to have an “October fest.” Yes I know that it is a German beer festival. We drank Martinelli’s
Lots of people come into town at conference time. Some of the visitors included some of Karl’s old mission Randy Maroo, and Tyler Calderwood.
I love General Conference. Karl and I are LDS. (That is members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.) Twice every year we have a general conference where the leaders of the church come gather together and teach about the doctrines of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
I love conference time because it is always a time of making new goals and re newel of old ones. A time of learning and a time of gathering together with friends and loved ones.
Karl and I were in the kitchen all day…looking great in our awesome aprons that my mom made us. I am usually not really into matching, but this was pretty cool. We made “spudnuts” for breakfast. Samllie and I had our first spudnuts on a cold day in December or January while serving as missionaries in Albania together. Sister Lenhart invited us over and made this amazing treat for us. It is basically a donut, but made with potato’s. They are soft, and delicious.
As the afternoon session finished we packed up the eating train and headed out to our bishops house with Krysta, Zac and Ren, (who just moved into our ward, woo woo!) For more food.
They have an beautiful home. It was very comfortable and well decorated. Everyone in the ward was there. One piece made me laugh and I ask my Bishop about this little guy.
Yes this is a stuffed badger. I asked Bishop Engleheart if he hunted him. The answer was “No! That guy was road kill! My son and I were on our way home from deer hunting and we found him in the road. I took him to my taxidermist before I even got home.” Hilarious! I love our Bishop.
We ate BBQ pork sandwiches and beans and one more bacon, lima bean, dish that I don’t remember the name of. It was all really good. We really enjoyed it.
So did Emily and Micheal Dixon. (Friends of ours in the Ward.) Sorry Micheal, I took this picture at the two, instead of the three. You still look great!
