chubby bunny

one of the games we did during family game night last week was “chubby bunny.” basically you just shove as many marshmallows into your mouth as you possibly can and try to say “chubby bunny.” it’s pretty funny to watch and just as funny to try for yourself!

annual meeting

ok, these pictures are pretty out of order, so please bear with me!

last week, we had our annual meeting for all of the missionaries in mexico. we had a great time seeing everyone and spending time with our mission family.

meet sarah brungardt. she is one of my all time favorite MKs ever! some of you will remember her from october when she told me i’d probably swallowed a STINK bug. 🙂
mackenzie wasn’t a big fan of having her picture taken this week, but i was able to get this one when she wasn’t looking. i think she and her sister had a lot of fun this week.
on our way out of town, we stopped at HEB to stock up on some things we can’t find in Guadalajara.just look at all those biscuits! 4 different kinds + cinnamon rolls!!the kids performed their VBS songs and got REALLY into the dancing!
sarah just LOVES taking self portraits.

laura and i with one of the other Journeymen, Rebecca. Rebecca works in El Paso at the Spanish Baptist Publishing Houselaura and i with brungardt girls, sarah and rachel
the ostertags and i organized “family fun night.” we did an amazing race style scavenger hunt with different challenges set up all over the hotel. here they had to eat the doughnut off the string
here they had to sing “amazing grace” to the tune of gilligan’s island
after our game, there was a talent show. kaitlyn ostertag (one of my other favorite MKs!) sang “open the eyes of my heart Lord.” she was SO nervous but did a great job!
bowden shared his favorite verse and why it is special to himsarah sang “how great it our God”
this is patti sorrell, my supervisor. i will be working with her in vancouver as well.
mackenzie was not in a picture taking mood at the gala, but kaitlyn was happy to snap a quick picture with me!

all of the journeymen went out to eat one night at italliani’s. it’s an italian chain here (shocking, i know!) and the closest thing we have to olive garden. our group was so much smaller this year than last and we missed everyone who has left this year, but we still had a great time.more family game night: making a pyramid by laying down blindfolded
and finally: “chubby bunny” shoving as many marshmallows as possible in your mouth as you can.
laura and i after the ladies’ banquet
leanne and i after the banquet. leanne used to live in GDL, but now lives in Richmond. i’m looking forward to seeing her again in Dec. when i go to debriefing.
on the way into town (see, i told you these were REALLY out of order!) we stopped at HEB and picked up some mint chocolate chip ice cream. this it nearly impossible to come by (baskin robbins is the only place we’ve ever found it before) here, so we were really excited. it was SO GOOD!!!
at the gala, those of us who are finishing our terms were recognized and given certificates.
landri normally won’t let anyone take pictures of her, so i was pleasantly surprised when she wanted to take a picture with me!
i’ve got a few videos from the week that i will try to post soon as well, so be watching for those!

what a bum!

it’s noon here and izzy just FINALLY got out of bed (and only because laura went downstairs to get some breakfast. clearly we’re having a highly productive morning around here!) i took izzy out a couple of hours ago and she promptly went right back to bed. what a bum! i went in a couple minutes ago to grab a quick picture of her and she sat up for a minute, yawned a few times and then flopped back over. it must be tough being that cute!
