 Merry Christmas! from Minnesota

Seasons Greetings!
      There has been some great things going about in the land of Minnesota! lots of beautiful freshly fallen snow, the Mormon Tabernacle Christmas cd playing in our car (we started listening to it in November so we know all the words (: ) and Christmas lessons all around!
For district P-day we went bowling in this little "vintage" bowling alley and it was a ton of fun! I've never loved bowling shoes so much. Minnesota is so cool. it just has so much character!

I found Narnia, Mom!

Happy Christmas!

 (: sister toone, sister ballif, me and sister Peterson

Sister Pelaez's first time in the snow! shes from mexico! shes my new comp!

So we had an emergency transfer and we got to have Sister Pelaez in a trio with us until Wednesday, and then she's going to be my new companion! She is straight from Mexico and definitely a hoot. I'm happy to be with her and to be able to stay in the same ward for another transfer! woohoo! that means I get to stay for the Christmas party (: I love my ward. izzz de besssst!
we've had a sort of sleep over in our room the last couple of days cuz we had to move another mattress in our room for sister Pelaez to sleep and its been like a lil missionary slumber party (:  Missions are just so full of the unknown. can I just tell you that.
So I want to share a brief Christmas thought with ya!
This week I've learned the most about Love, Strength and Inspiration. 
I've been thinking a lot about the wise How did they get so wise?
haha jk, well I guess not because that's a good question to ask.
anyway so I have a picture of the wise men on my planner and a quote that says:
"May we all make the journey to Bethlehem in spirit, taking with us a tender, caring heart as our gift to the Savior." -Thomas S. Monson
Have love in your heart for all, Let your strength be in Jesus Christ, and let the Example of Him inspire you to give the best gift of all, which is joy!

Sorry it's a short one but I LOVE YOU ALL!

 and Peace on Earth, Good will toward men!
