We hung out as a family and watched General Conference Video's.
I loved that some of the kids are older and enjoyed the talks as well.
We laughed together, ate together, felt uplifted together and they watched me cry together. It gave me a glimpse of what a forever family is like and why all this effort is worth it.
One of my favourite things around our house is my Families Are Forever sign that hangs in our kitchen with our complete family in willow tree figurines. When I walk past it, it reminds me of the great love my husband and I have and that all the kids are unique and have different personalities and talents. The kids love it too and it looks great!
Just on a different note: Before this weekend I was excited to get in the mail a pizza discount from Domino's. We don't eat out very often and I thought it would be great to order in some pizza whilst watching conference at home. Anyway, here is what pizza done the Ellis way looks like, even with little kids...hate to think what it will be like when they are teenagers!!
Eight boxes were eaten! Insane!!
The older kids were each able to pick out their own pizza it was sooo cheap...
