Ready . . . Or Not, for Conference

During the April 2016 General Conference, our family had a "camp-out" in the living room. For October 2016, I'm planning a harvest-party theme, mostly because I just put up the fall decorations this week. I love the leaf garlands I bought at a craft store several years back, when they were 40% off. For this weekend, I've tucked-in the Lego temple our family built this summer (from a kit by Brick 'em Younger).

I also have an early pumpkin on display. Since I knew it would rot long before Halloween, I went with a conference themed design. I can't decide if the attempt at a temple is tacky or awesome. It really didn't carve well, which is why I embellished it with metallic Sharpie.
I'll be bringing in our 2 foot by 4 foot adjustable-height table to put in front of the couch for art supplies, doodle books, and maybe some building toys.
I had been planning for months to print up some photos from this summer of our family visiting Temple Square. It hasn't happened yet, so it probably won't . . . which is not unlike most of the conference activities on my Pinboard. C'est la vie.
