I`m so happy to hear that everyone had an enjoyable and adventurous Christmas. (And Jacob, now you have no excuses to lose in basketball if you`re taller than Dad ;) ) And I`m so happy that you were all able to have so much fun with the family. That I think is one of the core elements to a succesfull life, happiness in being together as a family. =)
Here things are going to be a little crazy for the following week. From what I`ve heard, New Year's Eve here is the most dangerous day of the year. We`re actually going to receive special instructions from our president in how we should worktoday in our district meeting. (P-day got moved to T because none of the people or shops will be open all day on the January 1st. We`re actually just writing you guys and then going to work today. =) )
One thing I forgot to say when you called me was to have a Happy Anniversary! I hope you guys did something fun to celebrate.
Mom, I`m sorry that your back hurts still, and I really hope that it starts to get feeling better. I`ll be praying for you this week especially as well.
Our Christmas here was pretty normal. They really only celebrate on the 24th and stay up untiland then open presents, but it was fun because I got to meet the family of Elder Lizana! They`re all very nice, and working hard in their branch as well.
My birthday was also really good, and one of the less active families that we helped come back to Church even gave me a tie and a bracelet. I was so happy, because I know they don`t have very much, but are so willing to give.
Well we have to go now, because it`s not actually P-day and we have an appointment so I`ll fill you in on all the crazy things that happen here over the weekend this.
I`m glad Jenny is doing well, and enjoyed her mission, and I hope that everyone enjoys their New Year!
Lots of love,
PS I`m sorry that I didn`t send the pictures of the baptism. The computer store we usually go to was all full, and this one doesn`t have a spot for my memory card. :p
