WOW it was GREAT talking to y'all!!! I miss ya tons and it was good to hear all your voices and talk with ya for a bit. I'm sorry it was so short and we didn't get a chance to say goodbye, I think the minutes ran out on my calling card. Looking forward to talking to ya on Mother's Day haha :)
Thanks a bunch for all those pictures!! It's fun to see y'all and all the fam and home. I really miss it but love it here too. The phone call wasn't hard on me at all, it was a BLAST talking to ya. We only had one hour church on Christmas too and I'm pretty sure we only have one hour on New Years as well.
Wow! The missionary work in our home ward's starting to EXPLODE huh? There's only gonna be more from here, there are a TON of young men there, pretty exciting stuff :)
I'll try and send ya some good pictures because I have taken them, it's just tough to send them.
I LOVED the Christmas packages and so did Elder Sidillo! Thanks SO much! :) I think my favorite part was the music and George Durrant CD. It just wasn't Christmas without Christmas music ya know? :) Plus it made me feel way closer to home :) and the George Durrant CD was great and really brought the Spirit. Especially the story of his first Christmas on the mission. He's a pretty great speaker eh? I listened to his Number One Christian talk on my iPod last week and loved it too. Who woulda thought anything good other than dad coulda come out of AF?? ;o)
Tell everyone that gave me Christmas money thanks a BUNCH! We went to the mall today and got a few things with it. I'll try and send a picture :) They had some EPIC ties for only $5 but they were EPICALLY skinny as in half the size of the EPIC pink skinny you guys sent me. We loved the ties you sent and wore them for Christmas haha Thanks! :) Also LOVED the Snoopy wrapping paper hahaha, the whole package was great :)
We ran out of money once or twice and I'm planning on getting my Quad re-bound in Leather Art. Don't know how to describe it but I'll send a picture when I get it back in February some time. Part of Gma and Gpas Christmas money will go to that too :)
Wow! Kim gets to tract in the jungle??? Lucky! I guess I'm in the "Concrete Jungle" if you can call it that here haha :P I'm glad she's feeling better about things. Has Bud written her yet? and KUMUSTA ang PAGHAHANAP niya para ang ASAWA?? BAKIT HINDA PA TANGGAPIN KO ANG INVITATION SA PAKASAL NIYA?? hahaha :o)
Not too much art with painting or music here (They are OBSESSED with "Teach Me How to Duggie":/ ) But they are SO good at making things. When I get my scriptures bound and send you a picture you'll see what I mean!
LOVE YOU TONS!!!!!!! Don't even worry about "hogging the phone" you're the Mom! You gave birth to me so you should get more time right? :o)
Love you TONS!! Did I say that yet? haha :)
