Well, first off, it was SO good to see you all and talk on Skype!! Sorry I cried like a baby, but I think you all expected that. Christmas was wonderful, and talking to you was the highlight. We all recieved lots of fun gifts from Santa and I’m grateful for all you sent me too. LOVE IT ALL!!!
This is gonna be a little rapido, because I get to talk to you Wed!!
Fun fun week.
The only other thing I have to say is that today I MADE BAKKELS. WOOHOO!!
Love you guys so much and miss you, especially this time of year. But I know that really, I’m sharing a gift with people that has blessed me SO much and its the small sacrifice I can give.
Seriously, it rocked. And its gonna be long, so hold your horses.
First off, I got the birthday card!! I actually got it about a week and a half ago, but I waited to open it til the special day. 🙂 Thanks so much for the foto and recipes too, AMAZING! Hna Ruiz made me pancakes, I made almond syrup (I found extract! ha ha), and they gave me a super yummy cake FULL of trick candles. Took awhile to blow out. I haven’t gotten the package yet, but its all good. Honestly, the card made my day, so I can be patient. 🙂 The rest of my day we spent contacting….which was interesting. Guys, I’m getting bold, and it kinda freaks me out. Its so cool how the spirit works too. On one street in the evening I had the thought to ask the people we were going to contact for references, or if they knew anyone we could serve. We were at one house and I did that. She asked us if we were looking for work, “No, we are just here to serve people here if they need help”. “Gratis?” At first she didn’t seem interested AT ALL in listening to us, but once we explained that we just wanted to help people, she was will to just talk to us and find out more. She couldn’t believe that people actually do that! Ha ha. Also, we ended the night with english class and the elders taught our one trusty student Vicente how to sing Happy Birthday, so they sang when I walked in. Kinda made my life. 🙂 No, but really, I had a very happy birthday, so thank you all very much!
