General Conference Weekend

April 2nd, 2009 (Thursday)
We had George Robert & Rosemary Hoggan (my dear parents-in-law) staying with us for a few days. I am always so happy to see them, especially this weekend as I was feeling down, missing my family so badly. Sometimes I see some of my friends going through hard times with their parents-in-law and I feel so lucky to have such wonderful parents-in-law. Bob & Rosie are the best, it’s so comforting to know that we can always count on them; their support, love and example have kept us on track so many times.
Bob & Rosie are always are like a cool breeze on a hot summer day.
We love you, Mom & Dad Hoggan!

The house got a little fuller today as our nephew Thomas Hoggan and his friend (Shalis) came to stay with us for a few days as they were planning to attend the General Conference.
Tom is a sweet, smart, wonderful son/grandkid/nephew/friend and we know he will have tons of girls line up waiting for him when he comes back from his mission, and besides that he is a hunk (I guess it runs in the family)… hahahaha…

We spent the day watching General Conference today, isn’t it amazing that they always know what to say to make us feel better and that bright days are ahead?
We went as a family to the Distribution center as Mom & Dad Hoggan, after a long discussion, convinced us that they would be offended if we wouldn’t accept their gifts of Temple bags as they received the same gift from their parents. The good part was that as first-timers, we received 50% discount. Cool, huh?
In the evening we had the Matavaos (Liae, Roseanne, Tapá, Krae & Kalea) joining the rest of the family at home for dinner and a movie. Roseanne is Daren’s sister and her little daughter (Kalea) was so cute the whole night dancing for us, but don’t take my word on that, check out the video we made of her below….
You will love the video GRAND FINALE…. (and you neck will hurt as I made the mistake to take the video on vertical mode, instead of horizontal... ops! I will try to fix it, but I don't know if it will work...hahahahaha)

Today we watched the 2nd part of the Gen. Conference and enjoyed some good food together. Pot roast and chicken pot pie was the perfect complement to our weekend. Tom & Shalis drove back to Idaho.

Mom & Dad Hoggan left to go to Idaho today and we already miss them, however we will survive as we will see them again next week at the McBride Family Reunion.
Daren is back to work and me back to doing taxes….yack!
