alright! sooo. I just would like to announce to you at this moment that it is SNOWING in Wakefield, Virginia currently! I'd send you a picture but I left my camera in the car! woo! But yeah it's been snowing since early this morning. So crazy. It doesn't snow like this here. So I'm pumped. It's not sticking to the roads which is even better! I can enjoy the snow and still be able to go out :D
Holy cow it's less than two weeks! It's like...12 days! Holy moly! I'm pumped too! I'm pretty much open to any time for christmas calls. We don't have any like, set plans except to go to a members house SOMETIME during the day. So we can totally call you early. Maybe even while you're opening presents :O. or after if Jordan and Ryan can't wait :P If I called right at 10 am or 1030 It would be 7 or 730 there. So yeah I don't know if you wanna get up that early?
haha heat wave...we had a heat wave yesterday. It was in the 50's! haha It's gonna cool down now though. Who knows if we'll get snow again :P. Yeah it was raining a ton here as well yesterday. But it got cold enough to snow I guess :P. I don't know how much longer it'll last, but we'll see!
so these last couple of p-days me and elder parker have been watching these living scriptures videos and oh my gosh...they are hilariously awful. haha. It just makes the p-day fun!
wow! christmas package already? thank you! I really don't know what to expect...so hurray! haha. aww sad. I wanted those fuzy slippers...if I find em can I buy them? haha.
ok! So story! you remember those old converse I took with me? So I still had them...until a few days ago. they finally died :( They completely fell apart. Not the new joe boxer ones you sent me or anything. Just the old ones. So I was at this members house when they died and they saw them and we went over to their house for dinner the other day and they have this super cute 3 little kids (two girls and a boy) and they got them to bring us these two bags with presents in em. They bought me a brand new pair of converse! I was feeling really bad because they bought em for me....but then I didn't want to offend them by saying I wouldn't take it! so I was super grateful.
yeah! You did tell me about the clcasses. how are they going? or have they started? that's a cool thing though.
holy cow?! the house is gonna be totally different when I come back. new tv and everything? ryan was saying something about a new kids tv? what happened to the flat screen in the kids tv room? you should save that for me so I can take that with me to college! :D. haha. holy cow though...sounds like you already spent all the christmas money! :P
Jordan's probably fine...haha. I totally thought I broke my toe last p-day...like I SLAMMED it into a chair and it was popping and cracking and everything...but it was just jammed apparently cause the pain went away like, a couple hours later. Felt like a total baby calling the medical advisor. ha. oh well.
haha they are changing our time in wakefield too...actually just flipping the block schedule. it used to be priesthood/relief society first, then sunday school, then sacrament meeting. so yeah.
It's snowing harder again!!! HAppppppy!
I'd rather talk to you all without the extended fam too...not that I don't love em but I'd rather spend more time talking to less people! haha.
know you already got the call, but YES. I did get the package! Thank you so much. holy cow, you sent me both a watch and gps. I didn't expect to really get either haha. But I love both thank you so much. They are both really good.
and yes. we did get the snow. actually, ALOT more than they were predicting. we got like, 12-15 inches. and it shut us down for a while. infact there is still snow on the roads, actually more like ice. so that's whats going on there.
I've been a little frustrated with things lately...things have really turned down here, just because of the holidays I'm hoping. I mean life is still good but the work has slowed down. I'm not sure what's gonna happen next transfer...I might be outta here, or elder parker might, or we might just stay (haha thought I'd cover all my bases there...) It's just a coin toss really. But I'm just frustrated when nothing is happening in an area. I feel like even though I'm trying to do my best somehow I'm not. I'm sorry it's confusing but we're working to get this all running again.
so I'm not sure what else to say. I hope new years is great for ya. I love you all so much. btw, tell dad even though I'm pretty sure the ties came from his closet, I like em. I'm actually wearing one right now. haha. the oregon gear was sweet. thank you! All the gifts were great.
I'm sorry I've spent so much money lately. Things keep popping up and I'm sorry. I put it back in my lock box and don't want to use it again. I'm working on budgeting it better...I'm sorry. So I had some questions that I don't want you to think I'm getting trunky or anything but I just wanna get this all ironed out first. can you find out if it's even possible for me to defer another semester of school at byui? and if it's possible for me to apply at byu again? and if so, I need to work on finding a job...I guess I can look when I get home, but as it gets closer I would greately appreciate it if you could put the word out that I'm looking for work, but wait until it's very close. I don't want people to think I'm getting distracted or anything. yeah sorry for that paragraph, but I wanna make sure it's all figured out before I come home.
anyways. I love you all a ton. I hope your week is good. talk to you next monday!
Why is your email all...colorful?
I got all those christmas messages last time! yoU didn't need to send em again!
haha glad to get everyone out of the house eh?
oh and btw, I noticed that you did answer my questions about college...I just asked em because I need to know whether I need to be worrying about signing up and registering or not. so please let me know!
also I had a question for dad to figure out. and I know it doesn't matter rihgt now but I just was curious. Could you ask him to find out how much an iphone 4 would cost if you bought it on a plan? I know they cost more without a plan but with a plan is what I'm wondering.
Young womens councilor eh? You need to ship those youth into shape! haha.
my new years was even more uneventful. I was with Elder White on an exchange (one of the elders who came out with me) and so we had a good time. we had to come in early because of the new years but we played monopoly which was fun. I'm pretty sure it was Elder White's objective to trunk me out of my mind because that's what happened. haha. but I'm fine...it was just the new years and realizing that I'd be home this year freaked me out.
making jewelery? what the? haha. the rest sounded cool though. haha.
haha so my ocmpanion is feeling better but now I'm sick! It's real junky. haha. but I've gotten a little better so that's nice.
so I'm about to get kicked off so I'll do a quick summary.
I did get the money from frank and I'll be writing him today. also will write the girls if I can.
I felt real bad after what i said about dads ties. I like em and I wear em. I just noticed they were from dads closet!
yeah I don't know about the skype thing. i think they are doing it in certain missions and not all of em. Hopefully mothers day!
by the way loved the pictures!
anyways mom love you. there isn't much going on this week!
