I am glad that I got to talk to all of you on Christmas Day. It really was an awesome day! And I agree. It felt like we were just sitting back and talking in the front room. Which really makes me trunkie for sunday dinners at Grandma and Grandpa's, but alas. I digress.
I'm glad Grandma is doing better! Who called it?!;D I knew she would be alright. You also need to make sure she knows that I brag to all of the missionaries I find that I got to see my Grandmother in the MTC. How sick is that?! I'm also glad that Uncle John and Aunt Christine were there to save the day.
Ethan is a stud and will do great in Finland. What a unique mission. I'm glad that he has the opportunity to get out there and learn everything new. It's such an awesome experience.
I also have some awesome news!
I lost 6 lbs. over Christmas! That's 6 lbs. in 2 weeks! I can't believe it. Now.... There is a dilemma that goes along with it... I no longer fit my jeans... So I am going to have to buy some new jeans in Lethbridge today. But I am super excited. I feel really fit and really happy. If things keep trending this way, I'm going to be more fit than I have been in years! I feel so much healthier already.
Another thing; during Christmas I received a package from Emma Winfield. It was so great. She sent me a hand carved wood plaque depicting Christ with his arm around me. It was so touching and it was one of the most meaningful gifts I've ever received. And also - and I thought this was a really awesome surprise - on the outside of the package, Evelyn Jensen wrote Merry Christmas to me! It was so great. I freaking love Sister Jensen! Anyway, I just wanted Emma and Evelyn to know how much that meant. It was sweet.
I hope that everyone is well and that things are going great. Thanks for making Christmas amazing and I'm so grateful for everything everyone does for me!
I Love You All,
