General Conference Predictions & a Baby Chain



The election is just a month away...and that means that my due date is also just one month away!!!!

So what else could we do but begin the countdown by making a chain.  You know we love countdown chains around here.  And there is so much going on for us this October that just about every link of the chain has a special event associated with it.

Our chain ends with election day.  The baby's due date is the day before the election.  

We had each person in our family make a prediction about when the baby will actually arrive and write it on that specific link of the chain.  Fun, fun!

Speaking of predictions...my talented and generous sister-in-law Emmalee Christensen has once again created a Fantasy General Conference Bracket and shared it with us...

You can download the bracket here and make your predictions about who will speak and what songs we'll sing at General Conference this weekend.  Share it with your family and make a game out of it!

  3. We just made a paper chain today ourselves to count down until daddy gets home. It's looking awfully long now, but I think I'm going to get a thrill out of ripping those pieces of paper off every day!! :)

    1. Ripping those little links off is ridiculously satisfying! :)
