(MOM NOTE:  This picture was graciously sent by Sister Laura Hite. 
She also sent this sweet message: "I have had the pleasure of spending a lot of time with your daughter during her time here serving in the Silverado and Sunset Ward area.  Today I got the pleasure of taking the sisters to the Las Vegas temple.  We had a great afternoon!  Your daughter is a joy to be around and is a fabulous missionary!")

Week 26

(MOM NOTE:  No letter this week, but she wanted me to post this video so the members of our ward can see her open the Christmas Banner they made and sent to her.  She LOVES it!!  Thank you, thank you!)

Week 25

26 December 2016

I'm sorry for the radio silence! It's been a hectic few weeks with transfers and LOL of the holidays. My email today will not be as extensive as they normally are but I wanted to reassure you all that I am in fact alive and doing wonderfully. :)

So this week I saw this on a bumper sticker and it applies too much to my life not to share it with you all. "I'm not a night owl, nor an early bird, I'm a continuously exhausted pigeon". #mylifeinasentence xD

But other than constantly battling exhaustion, I'm just peachy :D I was talking to my mom about this and I receive, "Just wait until you have kids, it only gets worse". Thanks Mom. ;) I now have no hope for rest in this life, I've come to realize that the old adage is true. I'll sleep when I'm dead. :D

But in all reality the gospel truly brings joy no matter what our circumstances are. Life right now is so hard but it's filled with so much joy!

Just having leaf fun with my companion!
Someone knows how to decorate for Christmas
what "we like to call...the right way."
R2 is the best!

Leaf fun!

This CUTE baby was in front of us at church. She was fussy so we had a fun time entertaining her.
We had fun decorating these ourselves!
