Our Dinner Guests
Last night we had the missionaries over for dinner....again. It is always fun to have them over. I tell myself that they come over for my fabulous cooking. But, in my quiet moments I do realize that they come over for the fabulous company of my children. They always play a rousing game of Phase 10 or UNO with them. There is always much laughter and I love to hear it. Here's a picture of us...except Mark, of course, who was there for dinner but had another commitment a little later. (I put up this picture of me realizing that I look like complete crap. I had been sweating buckets during the preparation of dinner and my hair...well, it's just so sad...) Elder Morgan will be returning home tomorrow to Oklahoma. He is on the left. Next to him is Elder Horrocks. I nearly killed him last night by trying to feed him water chestnuts. (he is highly allergic to nuts...which I was aware of....but considered water chestnuts to be a vegetable, not a nut....what WAS I thinking???) He is from Sandy, Utah. They always leave us with a wonderful spiritual message. Such silly kids! There is a distinct possibility that they didn't make it back to their place by their curfew. We may or may not have caused them to be slightly disobedient to a rule or two....the Olympics were on the TV and they may or may not have been standing in the room while Usain Bolt broke a world record in the 200 meter....however, if asked, I will have no comment.
