Photo Scavenger Hunt!

We did the funnest activity in my ward the other day! The first Wednesday of every month the Young Women combine with the Young Men and we've done some pretty fun activities! I wish I had taken pictures of all them, but I will repent by taking pics of the ones in the future! And it starts with last week. :) 

So this time we did a picture scavenger hunt! It was a lot of fun. We all showed up at the church, did opening exercises and were given a sheet of paper with a list of scenarios we were supposed to do and take pictures of. Unfortunately I only have copies of the pictures from our group. And this isn't all of them, just my favs! I'll give you the pic and the prompt!

First let me introduce the group! From left to right is Kaitlin, Elena, Rosalynn, and Kobe! We have quite a few more yw than ym so there was only 1 to each group. We made the groups small so we could all fit in the car together to get the list done. 

Whole group with the biggest pumpkin you can find!

People wearing rival gear! 
(Could have been the local high school too but we liked this better! haha)

Picture with a mascot!

Everyone wearing the same colored t-shirt. 
Maybe we should have found an actual boys shirt for Kobe! haha

Everyone in a human pyramid! I joined this group so we could have a better pyramid. It doesn't really work with just 4!

Everyone on a slide!

This is one of my favs. They all had to get in a "I Can't Believe You All Fit In There" space. haha. This is the top of a slide at a play ground. So cute!

Hahaha. We had to have some one "wearing" a toilet seat cover! hahaha

This is the best one. One of the prompts was to get a picture with a police officer and you get bonus points if they're eating a donut. So we bought one at the grocery store where we took the other pictures. We went over to the police station but the doors were locked. So we drove around and saw one coming out. We pulled up to him and politely asked and he said he had to go to call and couldn't do it. We were so bummed! And we still had a MASSIVE donut. haha. So we took a picture of a police officer eating a donut without the police officer. :D

We went back to the church and used an apple TV to view all the pictures. We were supposed to use a tally and the one with the most pictures won. We decided we all won! There were some fun pictures for sure! (if you wanna see the rest, let me know!)

Love working with these crazy kids!!!

Next Step

I've been avoiding this post for a while now. In fact, a long time... I've been thinking about it since I wrote the post about our little grey circles that didn't make it. I like writing but the last few weeks have been kinda blah. I also think I've been a little hesitant because I've always wanted these posts to be super happy and chipper but that's not exactly how I feel. After the last post I did get a lot of really nice feedback, one in particular that made me feel extra good. My aunt is an incredible person and I love talking to her. She said to me that no matter how long those grey circles were my babies, they still were and I was allowed to grieve as much as I wanted. I think that kind of gave me permission to really cry and it made me feel a lot better. Thanks Kim. :) 

But now we're on to bigger and better things. I can't lie and say that I'm super excited about this transfer. I think I got WAY too excited for the last one/first one and it ma…

All we know is...

The results are in folks...

YES! We're pregnant!!!
There are simply not words to describe how I feel about this statement. One I've been wanting to make for what seems like forever. One I've heard from so many of my friends and family that made me want to cry. One that seemed impossible to make. And one I am finally able to say for myself. I can't even believe it.
We waited 2 LONG weeks to find out whether or not our little frozen circle would become our miracle. And when I say long, I mean long. Especially when I was supposed to start my period on Friday. Last Friday. So usually when you're trying to get pregnant, you wait till the day your period is supposed to start and you wait... If it doesn't come, you run to the store and buy that expensive little stick and awkwardly try to pee on it. (Maybe they aren't really expensive, but it kinda seems that way, right ladies??) 
Anyway, then you wait a few minutes and see what it says. I had one left over from the la…

Evening in Excellence - Keepers of His Light

A couple weeks ago we had our Evening in Excellence for the Young Women and it turned out so great! A couple girls decided they wanted to use this event as a Value Project for their personal progress so it was up to them to plan end execute the whole thing. I was a little nervous letting that all out of my control since I'm rather a control freak but I couldn't have been happier with how it turned out.

The girls decided on the theme of "Keepers of His Light" and all the decor was fall themed since we did it in October. Here are some pics!

These were the cute invitations we made. Aren't they awesome! We got the paper at Michael's and use the twine thread to tie a bow. :)

Isn't this great paper??

This is Rachel! She is one of the young women that wanted to help. She and Amber basically did everything!

This is beginning of the leaf lanterns that we made. The final product is further down the page... 

Rachel got a little hostile... ;)

This is Amber!! She amaz…
