November 23rd 2015

This week was pretty good overall! I was sick for a good portion of it
so that wasn't good, but I did get the stuff that you sent home with
the Burketts! Thanks so much! It was just what I needed to lift my
spirits! Especially since the day after I got really sick and had to
stay in all day. I would say that getting that stuff was by far the
best thing that could have happened this week!
The home auction sounded like fun! I will probably experience one at
some point...
It is great to hear that Heidi is growing up! A year ago, I could see
her not even wanting to try something like that! I only wish I was
able to see some of this growth with my own eyes, but that time will
Sorry to hear that you have had a headache for the last couple of
days! We have been headache buddies together! I hope that you are able
to feel better!
Oh and it is pretty funny how Meagan said "the sisters turn everything
into a miracle :)" It is so true! I wish that I had sisters in my
district because they bring a sense of hope and optimism that the
elders don't always have. I have found that Miracles are everywhere
and it is not hard to turn "everything into a miracle", but that it is
hard to remember to do so all the time! It all comes down to being
grateful for the gifts that God has given us, and sisters are
typically really good at that! Haha
Thanks again for the package! I loved it so much, just what I needed!
I may try and use the home card today(just for something small) due to
the last time I used it forever ago, it had a hard time scanning it.
After 6 or 7 tries it was finally able to read it, so I want to check
to see if it is the card or if it was the machine that had a hard
I love you so much! You are amazing! I hope that you have an amazing week!

First, thanks for the pic and the funny! I loved it! It made me laugh! It is getting cold here! I have worn thermals a couple of times already! Haha, but it is still okay, I am still alive! Thanks for writing down your thoughts and the quotes from Elder Hollands talk! I love it! Thanks for the update on everyone! It is crazy how old the girls are getting! They are growing up so much! I love you so much! I hope you have a great week!

November 9th 2015

First, I wish I was experiencing the cold there, instead of the cold
here! It is 46 degrees outside right now, and it is 10:30, the high
today here is about where your low for the day is (we are allowed to
have a weather app so I compare Gilbert to Bedford;)... I miss the
heat! :) that is awesome about going out with the sisters! That is a
really awesome idea about the inactive sisters and the rescuing! I
can't wait to hear how it turns out! That is awesome about the
regional stake conference! Yeah, I got an email from the bishop
inviting me to it! :) We had stake conference,
and the Internet was out in our building so instead of watching a
broadcast, we listened to it through a phone... A static connection
haha, but it was still really good (plus we did get to go to the stake
center the night before for the adult session, so not all of it was
through the phone, haha! Can't wait
to see see the pictures of the painted rooms! And don't worry
about selling my stuff, if you are going through my room and you're
like... "why would he need this", just ask and I will probably say...
"I don't remember even having that." As long as I have clothes and
some stuff when I get home everything will be fine. One thing, if you
haven't already sold it, you could sell that bench that I have in my
room. If you are using it in the home gym then don't sell it, but feel
free to sell it if it is just sitting there! I love you so much mom!
You are the best! I hope you have a fantastic week!

November 2nd 2015

Not all that much happened this week! "Time in" was really long. I did
not like it very much at all. Halloween night I was so tired, so it
was a blessing that we weren't walking around. I didn't get time to
make the syrup, but I will be making it this week! I will be taking
pictures too ;) it sounds like Meagan had a good time with Parker! I
miss walking around on Halloween night! I never liked to get candy,
but I still miss it for some reason!
We don't have a whole lot planned for this week, but we have some
service and a few lessons with some less actives. A lot of this week
will be finding, so I hope it goes well!
I love you so much! I hope you have an amazing week! The best ever!
