It's been a wonderful week. I have posted a few pictures here and have written above each one to explain what and where it is from. It may not be in the right order by date.
Saturday, December 21, we drove down to the temple to see the lights and to attend the Christmas concert in the visitor's center. We took a couple and a sister from our branch with us. I'm not sure why there are no pictures of Brother and Sister Williams, but they must have been walking around by themselves. Anyway, we had a wonderful time and enjoyed the evening very much. There are no words to describe the beauty and the peace we felt even though there were hundred of people around.
This room had nativities from all over the world along the walls and in the middle. Amazingly beautiful.
Dennis Pitta, formerly of the BYU football team but now a football star with the Baltimore Ravens attended our Mission Christmas Party. He was kind enough to have his picture taken with all 260+ of us individually.
Ready for Christmas Eve dinner. We had invited the whole district but only our own four Elders could come. We had such a nice and fun evening with all the Danish traditions that I cherish.
Sorry, a little blurry.
We have adopted all four of them.
Elder Lewis ran into an old friend at the Mission Christmas party. As you can see they were happy to meet again. It had been six weeks.
More fun and spirit than you can imagine. All these Elders and Sisters are the cream of the crop.
Oh my goodness!! Desserts galore.
Ham, cheese potatoes, mixed vegetables, salads and rolls.
The following pictures are from our Senior Couples' Christmas Party at the mission home. Everything was so nice.
