Dear family and friends,
What a great Christmas season! We had a great missionary Christmas party last week and got to see a lot of old friends from the MTC. We got to watch Princess Bride, and did a white elephant exchange with all the missionaries. I ended up with a tie. Pretty original haha. We got our Christmas packages from home which was cool. On Christmas eve we were at the Christmas family's house haha. It was a lot of fun. We had beef wellington and built gingerbread houses.They decided to make it a competition which was a mistake on their part because Elder Wilbur and I created the most beautiful gingerbread house the world has ever known. We also got to watch It's a Wonderful Life! It was awesome. That made it a real Christmas. After the movie, they gave us a stocking full of random gifts including deodorant and a Wal-Mart gift card. Good stuff. On Christmas day we got to sleep in! Best gift ever, although I couldn't sleep any longer than 8. We opened our packages and then we went to the Verstappen family for lunch and to call home. It was great to hear from everyone. Sounds like everyone's doing well. Since we had the rest of the day off we went to the gym at our chapel to do some physical activity. Great Christmas! Hope you're all enjoying the holidays! Happy New Year!
