After church the kids played well together and Maya and I made Pumpkin Pies. We had another couple from church over, and Casey's cousin Annie (I sure like that girl). We have been trying to have people over every Sunday and I've really enjoyed it. I think if I did a little more menu planning it would be even better. Dinner was great, even though I found out we didn't have any potatoes for mashed potatoes right before our guests got here (menu planning?), but we made an extra big salad and called it good. I always enjoy getting to know people better, and we have a lot of really great families in our ward. The only problem is that once we have someone over I just want to keep having them over again and again. It's hard to tell myself to keep inviting new people. Annie is really fun to have over. She is always so sweet with the kids, helps clear the table, compliments my cooking (even though I know her mom is a super cook), sneaks in and washes dishes, tells us all the exciting things going on in the world of singles, and even volunteered to watch our kids so Casey and I can go out this Saturday. It's funny because I left church today committed to try harder to bless the lives of others, but instead I just keep feeling like my life is so blessed by the people I come into contact with.
