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!
