Growing up in Kansas, we went to the stake center for Conference. I especially loved it as a youth. There weren't any little kids around making noise, and I could just take lots of notes.
Now I live (as a mother) in Utah. It's still broadcast at the stake center, but it's also on 2 different local channels. We stay home in our pjs and do our best to keep the boys entertained. My notes aren't as copious, and I just can't pay as much attention. I keep thinking that I need to start lunch, or a load of wash, or I could be reading my book.....plus keeping the kids occupied.
What do you all do for General Conference? I suppose I'm looking specifically for how you get anything out of conference with the kids running around, but I also want to know what you do now, no matter what stage of life you're in. Do you make bingo cards? Do you dress up and stay home? Do you children attend all sessions with you at a stake center? Do you have any traditions?
What have you done to make General Conference special?
