News for the Week

What's been going on here in our house? Well, I'm about to change jobs again...more news and pictures soon.

We've been at a missionary farewell this Sunday, for our neighbor. The luncheon was just beautiful! We are really excited for this new Elder, because we've known him since he was little and growing up in our old ward.

*So, today we're noticing time is really marching very FAST now. "Our Elder" will be home right after Christmas:)

More news later!!

Here's a quote I found on the internet tonight:

You are or have been a Latter-day Saint Missionary if:

You've ever worn a name tag without your first name on it.

You've ever said to someone, "This is my companion."

You dropped out of college, stayed unemployed for two years, lost your favorite girl, and called it the best time of your life.

You think that Elder doesn't necessarily mean older.

You easily recognize three common human ailments: blind minds, hard hearts, and stiff necks.

You lived with a roommate for a whole month--or more--who you never called by their first name.

The investigator asking you probing personal questions isn't a police detective.

You put ketchup on nearly everything you cook.

You enjoy telling people why they are here and where they are going.

Your greatest hero in the scriptures was a man named Ammon.

About every eight weeks or so you get a new roommate who you don't get to choose.

Your most coveted present all year was a new tie.

You're 20 years old and it's been months since you went to bed after 11:00 p.m.

You introduce yourself to people every day without telling them your first name.

You get one half day per week all to yourself and you spend most of that time doing your laundry.

Hahaha! That list is awesome, I can really appreciate that living here in Utah among the Saints!

That's so exciting that your missionary is coming home in December! Time flies! So is it "trunky" that they call missionaries who are about to come home?

(Your comment was so cute about using the nickname of Richard! lol, I'm sure if you used that phrase on your husband, he'd probably faint first, and then clean the dresser lol!)
