I don't want to drive up to the pearly gates in a shiny sports car, wearing beautifully tailored clothes, my hair expertly coiffed, and with long perfectly manicured fingernails. I want to drive up in a station wagon that has mud on the wheels from taking the kids to scout camp. I want there to be a smudge of peanut butter on my shirt from making sandwiches for a sick neighbors children. I want to be there with a little dirt under my fingernails from helping to weed someone's garden. I want to be there with children's sticky kisses on my cheeks and the tears of a friend on my shoulder. I want the Lord to know I was really here and that I really lived.

The last 2 months have been filled with fun times with cousins!
We got to go out to Pleasant Grove to see Chloe, our newest cousin on the Larsen side, on her blessing day. All the cousins on the Larsen side were there!

Catching up over lunch!

Brielle was not too happy about pictures, but the rest of us were pleased to get a picture together!

In Oct, Our Uncle Paul brought his family over to the US from Cambodia, and we were so excited to spend some time with cousins we'd only seen on Skype! Here we all are waiting at the airport for them to arrive!

Hanging out at Aunt Shannon's

After a super fun day at the pumpkin patch. (I will post about that later. I just wanted to get the pic of all the cousins up!)
I'm so grateful for families and for our Heavenly Father's plan for families to be together forever. Heaven wouldn't be Heaven without the ones I love most with me there!

  1. I am a former mission companion of Paul's and have, just this morning, heard some very disturbing news. I have been unable to confirm any information. Can you update me. I have been in contact with many of the others from the mission and all are concerned.
