We had a wonderful visit with Tyler on Christmas day! Thanks to modern technology, we were able to talk to him via skype! He looks great and his countenance just shines! We had the whole family gathered around the computer and it was just so much fun to interact with him along with everyone else! Jordan and Kristyn were not there because they had to head back to Carlsbad for their Christmas gathering with her family but luckily Tyler was able to skype with them after he finished his visit with us and they had a great visit also. He was able to see his little Brooklynn too so that was great! Tyler did not write a letter, but he sent us some pictures. He has become very attached to the people in Rye and he is going to be very sad when he has to leave that area. He says it is such a beautiful place! We are so proud of Tyler and his commitment to serve a mission. Next Christmas he will be with us! We hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!

MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It has been a week of miracles. We have three new investigators. One who is about 26 yrs old and is from Chicago and he is progressing really well. It is so beautiful to see him receive answers to his questions by reading the Book of Mormon. He is Native American so that history is really cool to him.

Thank you so much to everyone who has sent me cards and letters. I am so grateful and love you all !!!!!!!

I dont have a lot of time today because it is snowing and President Anderson wants us to travel to Pueblo as soon as possible so we dont get causght in the worst of the snow storm because we have our Christmas conference tomorrow !!! We are doing a "white elephant exchange." I am very excited !!!!!

Hello everyone !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I cannot put into words how grateful I am for all of those birthday wishes. You all touched me heart (Irish accent) HAHA !!! But seriously it was amazing, I love each and every one of you !!!!!!

It was a great birthday ! The Hamlers found out it was my birthday and they had us over that morning for a birthday breakfast, and it was AMAZING !!!! German pancakes and homemade syrup, and sausage and bacon !!! Mmm mmm a fat kids dream !!!!! And the Smiths (bro Mickey Smith is our ward mission leader) even got me a little something. A bag of "Snickers" and a scented candle since I'm always sniffing theirs ! HA !! And that day we found a new investigator !!!!! SO SWEET !!!!!!!!!!

The "Christmas in the Valley" was that night and we sang in the choir and it was great ! We had a great opportunity to pass out "Joy to the World" dvds to those who came and hopefully we will see some miracles from that. I love you all and want to leave you with a scripture that is perfect for the season (2Nephi 19:6).

Cant wait for my birthday surprise!!!!!

It was a pretty good week, we are still trying to find those who are prepared. We are excited because we have an appointment tonight with a woman who is deaf. We have a sister in the ward coming to translate.

The Rye wards Bishopric was released yesterday and a new one called. I am gonna miss serving with Bishop Golly but am looking forward to working with Bishop Crawford.

This Friday is the wards "Christmas in the Valley" where the ward invites people from the whole community to come and watch /participate in a musical performance show. Guess what? I'm in the church choir !!! HAHAHA Its pretty fun but I have no idea what I'm doing but its Christmas songs so I am all about it !!!

Its sad because the Denver Temple presidents wife was killed in a car accident recently and as a result we are not going to be able to hear from Elder Richard G. Scott. Its OK though. I feel so sorry for the Temple president.

I cant believe widdle Racho is gonna be 17 !!!!!!!!!!!!! She is growing up so fast !!! Love you Racho !!!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY !!! We have been getting some snow the past few days. Love you all !!!!!!!!!
