MERRY CHRISTMAS!  This past week was wonderful.  We started off speaking in Sacrament meeting then traveling and doing apartment inspections.   We also received this fun package in the mail from my sister Marty.  I was more than over the moon because it is seldom that a package comes addressed for us and it was a Christmas package too.  Thanks Marty for thinking of us!!!

 On Thursday we had the Sisters and Elders over for waffles with our Branch Mission Leaders.  None of them had ever had waffles so it was a treat.  We had fresh strawberries with whipped cream, maple syrup and white cream syrup.  They all wanted to know when they could come back for some more.

The missionaries competed in a hot game of stacking cups in the order of the books in the Book of Mormon. The Sisters won with an incredible time of 60 seconds.

We then had a fun few games of Headbanzz Greek style.

The Elders gave our branch mission leader the gift of his own teaching record here in the mission.  Panyioti was an investigator for about 10 years.  They got permission to give him the teaching record that was kept in the area book.  The comments were priceless and he was very touched.

This picture is kind of dark but the missionaries gave Bill an 8-pack of diet Coke and a Rebuk's cube with his favorite scripture on it, 

I got two packages of my favorite ice cream treat here in the mission field.  They are really, really good.

Here we are ready for Christmas Day Dinner.  It was so much fun to have these wonderful people to share this special day with.  

We followed up with a lot of UNO games!!!

Here we are, casual and ready to call it a day.
