I am absolutely sick of people asking me personal questions because we have five kids! I am working my tail off to get a degree and be able to provide well for our children (and really to be a better mom)! Scott's going to graduate in December and we are doing the best we can for our five kids! I understand that in a few places people think that many children is leading to overpopulation, but we're in a small town and THERE IS PLENTY OF ROOM!!! So, I just don't understand why people are so nosy and just plain rude! I can just smile and laugh when they say we have a handful, because we do! We have five kids and five fingers on each hand-so technically five is a hand full. But, enough of the questions! I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and know that Heavenly Father wants us to help children come into the world. We are not trying to "populate it ourselves" nor are we planning to have more than six. I'm not trying to have a TV show, because of my family. It really is no one else's business, but ours and Heavenly Father's. I love being a mom and I love my children. There is nothing wrong with that! So, in case you're tempted to do something without thinking and ask a COMPLETE STRANGER how many kids they are planning on having-please refrain yourself! Thank you!
Now off my soap box (I think it's sufficiently crushed)! We did have fun, even with the interesting people and our lesson was on family and how we should be kind. We repeated our little motto-"We are Westhoffs! We are a family! We love each other! We help each other! And we don't fight!"
Hurray for family! Now onto the pictures!

I let Cecilia have the last bit of my cone, because it looks like a baby cone! She loved it!
