Dec 23

Monday was a pretty chillax day! We stayed at home most of it. We also bought matching antlers at the dollar store! 2 for a dollar! :) They jingle! :)

Tuesday we had an awesome zone conference with Elder Arnold of the seventy! It was super long though! We then had a bunch of awesome lessons that evening! It was a crazy but upper good day!

Wednesday we accidentally tracted into our dinner appointment. We got a ride and she asked where we were going and we told her the name and the street and she told us that she knew them and dropped us off. we were early though so we decided to knock some houses down the street. As we decided to head to dinner we decided to knock a certain last house and she welcomed us in as my companion told her that we were just knocking some doors before we head to dinner and she look confused and said "I am your dinner..." hahahaha. There are two Jackson families that live on that street! haha. We then stopped by a new move in! Super cute family! We are going over there today. Their little boys drew us pictures! Adorable! I will have to send a picture! Then we got picked up by the YM and YW and went caroling to less active and non member houses which was great!

Thursday we helped a Relief Society president wrap angel tree gifts! And she made us some of the best hot chocolate I have ever tasted! I will have to send you the recipe!! Then we went out and had lunch with Sister Molina's Springville mom! So cute!! :) And she gave us some gifts of her 5 most favorite things! It was so sweet! And they all had meanings! And it was so sweet for her to give me them too. There was a sweatshirt symbolizing a hug, socks for walking in Christ’s footsteps, Chocolate, the conference Ensign, and a heating pad. I'm going to have to send you a letter with everything because I forgot but super sweet! Then we went to a couple of Relief Society activities!

Then Friday was our Christmas celebration! Sister Molina and I totally twinned! We wore the same skirt and lacy white tops and the same scarf and same skirt! :) Our guest was David Hatch a worldwide famous pianist! He is incredible!!! One of the pics is with him! He also shared poems he wrote from the view of Mary of her son. It was awesome! Hopefully we will get his talk sent to us! Then the Relief Society decked out the cultural hall like Whoville! I wish I would have gotten more pictures!! It was adorable!! And we had cafĂ© rio style burritos! Yum!! Then we had a talent show! It was hilarious but then it started getting really long! Our zone leaders wrote a song about not getting mail called tears! I will have to send it to you! And then there was a reinactment of the 12 days of Christmas. We only have the 12th day but its soo funny! Then our movie was UP :) We then picked up our presents and had dinner and then went to mom J’s for a Christmas lesson. She had invited 8 families over but only one showed up but it was good! And she made me birthday cake because she forgot my birthday and gave me an adorable scarf! And then we went caroling in a trunk and trailer around the neighborhood! It was so much fun! :)

Saturday we baked cookies all day for all of our ward mission leaders, relief society presidents, bishops and people we are teaching! So many coookies! We made well over 300!

Sunday we went to two churches which was great and delivered most of our treats and shared a message with another family who invited a less active family over who bailed. Turns out their oldest son was baby Jesus in the testaments!!! so cool! And then we went to the B’s- Who we will Skype from. They are so funny! We love them!

And that is the brief version of the week! I will have to send some notes later! :)

Love ya!
