That's what Charity said when she glanced into the pot. So cute.
My favorite way to make soup is to just take a can/box of premade soup and add a bunch more veggies and good protein sources!

This is the Guertin Family, new to the ward, just moved from from WY. They've got a few kids matching up in ages to ours, so weve basically got no choice but to be besties :) Forreals though, it feels good to be the first to reach out and befriend new people.
Moving is tough.
Making friends quickly makes it easier.

I'm not personally a big fan... I feel like all that CO produced by the cars driving slowly is pretty gross. And throwing candy to kids obviously does nothing positive for them. And all the effort put into planning and executing events like this could do so much good for the world if directed towards alleviating global hunger or something along those lines. Party pooper I am? Okay :) Anyway, I actually had to miss it because little Courtney slept in until 11am (ELEVEN) !!! Crazy! She's never done that before. Her poor body must have been exhausted from staying up too late every night on this trip, and eating way too much junk food. I'm glad she got some sleep, and will be glad to get back to normal healthy life.
While she slept in, I got cleaned up after a BEAUUUUTIFUL long morning run through the countryside of Spanish Fork and the golf course. It was fantastic. Felt amazing. Also got our stuff all packed up, car ready, rooms and bathrooms all cleaned up.... it was quite the effort! But felt great to leave on time having everything organized.
In the passenger seat of that red car (Camero?) is Grandpa McKell...almost 98 years young! It was awesome spending time with him. He's a great example of a positive, loving attitude towards everyone. Brianna sat on the back of the car with her two cousins Kandalyn and Allison. With them being so close in age, it will be sweet to see how their cousin-relationship plays out as they get older!

Forreals tho, when I look at this picture and think about these four humans I brought into the world... I just feel an overwhelming sense of accomplishment. Like - there's nothing greater I, as a person, could contribute to the world than these amazing spirits. I'm so grateful I get to be their mommy!!

These pics were taken by Jenny on the sidelines as the hired photographer, Elizabeth Humble (a lucky find from Craigslist!!) was working with the various groups/families.
I haven't seen the official pics from the photographer yet, so I'm crossing my fingers she got a decent one of the whole group. It was tough because Bethany was having a tantrum, and some other little ones were fidgety. I didn't envy that photographer's task!
