September has been chalk full of many activities. It has been the perfect way to start the new school year.
Daniel and I have a tradition of going to Park City to celebrate birthdays. This is the third year we've done it since we met. We went the weekend after my birthday. When we got there, it was pouring. So, off came the shoes and we went running in to town from the parking lot which was not super close! It was actually very fun!
By the time we left, it was just overcast. What a wonderful little respite from a busy world!
This little lady, Megan, from the singles ward I was in...
...planned an awesome "Minute to Win It" game night as a combined YSA relief society meeting/stake young women activity on the third Wednesday in September. The girls had a BLAST.
|In this game, one person twirled around in toilet paper while the other one held it and the point was to be the first to use up the whole roll.|
|The 'ole get the oreo from the forehead to your mouth game...|
|Our ward was in charge of dessert and we did little fruit pizzas on sugar cookies using this recipe (but using lemon juice instead of lime juice concentrate).|
Because the soup made so much, I asked the Goncalves family to come over after church and share it with me. When we got to my house, all I had to do was add milk, sour cream, and blend it with a hand mixer. I served it with grated cheese, bacon bits, and sour cream. It actually ended up being a hit!
|Sabrina was captivated by our old elliptical my dad recently brought up for our apartment.|
|The kids and Isabel all made me belated birthday cards and brought them to church today. It was very touching to me.|
Sabrina helped me make GF butterscotch/chocolate chip cookies. She is such a good helper! I absolutely love those two kids. Today was the primary program and they both gave little talks in English. The primary kids all sang one verse of "If the Savior Stood Beside Me" in Portuguese and I immediately started crying. Isabel and Ricardo and their family have become like family to me.
