Okay, okay! So we got a bit of a slow start since we had to make a sign and take pics documenting that we actually did make soup for an entire day. But after that we really did get to work!
Our menu (to keep us on track). I made...
White Chicken Chili
Wild Rice Beef Stew
Chicken Vegetable Soup...our dinner for the night.
Nine Bean Soup. This was my special soup of the day since it was my first time making it AND because I will be doing something special with it very soon.
Here is a very small sneak peak into my special suprise with the Nine Bean Soup...

After sweating in the kitchen all day (us girls) and the boys sitting on their tooshies playing video games all day, we all took Brody trick-or-treating.
I love how involved Jess and Shane are in Brody's life!
There was some serious monkey business going on in our neighborhood! This particular monkey is not yet a year but she was kicking her feet ferociously in excitement! So cute!
Brody thought these ghosts were great.
He "baby-talked" to them for awhile before moving on to the next house.
He was so cute at each house as he performed his best impersonation of a monkey and signed "thank you" with a kiss after receiving his treats.
But the treats were not the highlight of his night (probably because we don't allow him much candy yet). He was most excited about the dog in our neighbors' house. He made himself at home by walking right on in and making friends with the sweet little white dog. He just couldn't get enough so Jonathan had to walk inside and pull him out!
It was a great Halloween and a perfect end to our 1st Annual Soup Day!
Hope you all had a great weekend too. Any suggestions/recipes for soups to make next year?
