thank you for helping me with these letters for grandma i really appreciate it! (We have discovered he can email us a letter to grandma, and we can forward it to her great neighbors in St Joseph, who will print it out and get it to her, thus saving him stamps!)
I really miss the Ole' Missouri storms even though they are dark and gloomy, besides the time it snowed, not a single cloud has dared to show it's face since I got here!!! they haven't even spit on us! I'll keep an eye peeled for the package (yes, a 3rd!) thank you for giving me a heads up about it! And, mailing stuff to Mexico already (some with elders already down there have suggested it's time to go ahead and mail Christmas packages at it can take a month or longer to arrive) that sounds crazy, I hope that it doesn't take that long to send packages to Mexico. Thinking about that blog reminded me that i thought I saw an Elder Peacock name tag somewhere in the residence hall's I'll try to see if i can figure anything out! :) CHARLES I'M ROOTIN' FOR YOU AND YOUR TEAM TONIGHT!!! Since you mentioned the shoe trees E. Gerlach has some of those and he heard the same thing as you from the person who sold him his shoes. so far though my shoes are handling everything that i can throw at them.
Dad, I hadn't realized that I had sent the email to Mom (he forgot to CC me on the email last week!), but since you mentioned it, It may happen more often. I've got some pics that I'm going to try to get in the mail today or tomorrow hopefully they can get to the house before dad's gone if not you can all tell him about them!! :) Sorry about the bad punctuation/ grammar, Cindy would likely kill me! that reminds me that there are about 15 Finland bound missionaries that i have gym time with what part did she serve in and what part did/do ( i cant remember) Jonnis parents live in? Anyways 30 min isn't much time to type a letter and answer all of your questions and write you about how life's goin' :( I cant wait for the spot remover, it will be well used I can tell you that! However it shouldn't be too much of a problem since it is now "cold" weather here at the MTC (it's still around the low 70's during the day, as long as the sun is over the mountains otherwise everyones breath is frosted and there is hoarfrost on the bushes!) and they've" winterized" the buildings (aka the furnaces are on) our sacrament meeting/ chapel/ priesthood room was 95 degrees F on Sunday, and then on Sunday night the gym was at least that hot for the fireside when everyones was sitting in the same room!! Thankfully Pres. Brown allowed all of us Elders to take off our suit coats, it was a sweet relief! Oh and they've begun to put up Christmas lights around the campus its pretty fun too look at but none of them are on yet.
It's good to hear that mom's leg is getting better and that everyone is doing well. Ummm. . . . .I'm trying to think of anything that would be "newsworthy" too of the residence halls are being renovated so every room on our floor has 3 bunk beds in them now and 6 elders a piece! it's really only a Lil annoying in the morning . . . . waiting in line for the showers!
Oh something else you might like is that last night's devotional speaker was Elder Richard G Scott Its was pretty cool to hear what he had to say, I think that my favorite thing was when he admonished all of us to look to the sisters for an example and to follow their lead in how they quietly consider them. I don't have any sisters in my district so I'm trying to remember all of the times that mom and Kaitlyn set a good example for me . . . . it's a lil difficult (sorry i couldn't resist :P) besides that I don't think that I have much to report on I gotta get back to the residence hall and change so I can get to the temple on time
Vaya Con Dios,
Yo Tengo mucho amor por cada ustedes,
