Dear Family & Friends,  Christmas will be here before we know it.  We can't wait.  This year we are in a different city than last year with new branch members and missionaries  We are excited.  It is fun to work with the young missionaries and see their enthusiasm and love of the work.  They never cease to amaze us.

The sisters helped to decorate the Branch Christmas tree:
Sisters Lutzinger and Lehman

Do you recognize this lady?  If you heard her voice I know you would.  It is Sis. Edmonds who is better known as the "Food Nanny."  Her show is on KBYUTV and she as written books on the importance of feeding our families healthy meals.  She was here with her husband and we had a fun time getting to know each other.  They are stationed in Frankfurt, Germany, and travel all over Europe checking out real estate for the church.  You might ask what qualifications he had for this amazing assignment:  NONE - he was an airline pilot who flew for Delta.  Go figure!?!  They have just been out for 9 months.

We celebrated Bill's birthday last week.  Sorry I didn't get any pictures.  We went to a place that we were told had good steak.  It really was pretty good and we enjoyed the night out.  We were down on the seaside the the weather had turned very cold and the wind was blowing hard.  We actually had a few days of 'cold' weather.  In the 40's and 50's.   This week we are heading back to the 60's which is nice.  we pretty much heat our flat with a small space heater and sleep with heavy blankets on at night.

Sunday night we went caroling with the young missionaries and our Branch Mission Leaders.  It was really a lot of fun.  People loved it.  I guess it isn't something that they do over here much.  We went to members in our branch and handed them a plate of cookies and sang 3-4 songs.  During one of the songs, my 'beautiful' voice majorly cracked and in turn so did Elder Potter crack up.  He had a hard time composing himself  after that.  Now they know why I don't sing in the mission choir!!!!

Hope you all are enjoying the Christmas season.  May we all remember that He is the reason for the season!
