Sunday Dinner

Last night we were able to go to a family dinner in Bountiful at Grandma & Grandpa Simms.. it was so fun! We missed Luke & Natalie and Steve & Lauren but it was wonderful to get together for a great dinner and play games! We also got to celebrate Connor's 11th Birthday (which will officially happen this Saturday!) He was so excited and so were we! The Benich's also gave talks in church... Jamie, John & Connor and Nathan.... so the younger boys gave us there talks (which were really amazing for such little guys) and Jamie shared part of hers.
I made homemade rolls in the morning to bring, which turned out to be much more work than I had anticipated as I forgot to put the "spill lid" on the Bosch mixer before adding the potatoes to the liquids! Needless to say, the Yeast, Milk, Oil, Water and Sugar FLEW everywhere possible in the kitchen! It took me 20 minutes to get it cleaned up and I started at it again... but they got rave reviews so it was worth it...
Here's a sneak peak at the afternoon....
