Merry Christmas!

Well, like all of you, I don't have much to say since I just saw you...

But it was great to Skype. I loved seeing everyone and getting to talk to you all. :) It was the best Christmas ever! The music video was seriously the BEST present I could have ever gotten!! :) 

Well, I wish I had more to talk about but nothing has happened this week... Sorry!!

I hope you have a great week!

I like the finer things in life......

(Read in a British accent)
Well, this week has just been grand. I had the wonderful Christmas conference and received great gifts. Thank you very much, they are verrry appreciated.
But Friday was a day that will never be forgotten! This is where my newly found life begins. I only like the finer things in life now. I only do ritzy things and only enjoy the best of things. On Friday night we went to the most glorious restaurant. It is called Three Sixty. The restaurant is at the top of a hotel on the Ohio River and it turns in a circle. It is marvelous and the view is spectacular! These are just a few of the nicer things that I have done now.
I hope you all have a wonderful week.
Merry Christmas.
Feliz Navidad! ( I speak Spanish now, don't you know)

Together for 6 more weeks!!

Wow. Another transfer has flown by! We had a great week to finish it off! :) We had a lot more success this week. Heavenly Father has just really been looking out for Sister Brown and I. We are so blessed. We are also blessed to stay here another 6 weeks! I am so excited to spend Christmas and new years with Sister Brown and here in Lake side park! :) 
The miracle of the week:
This is more of a funny one but great none the less! 
So on Friday or Saturday I got my package from you mom, with M&M's. I was so excited and I put them in the car to munch on while we drive. The car is where we spend most of time because we have to drive a lot to get places. So I put them in there and totally forgot that it wsa going to be fast sunday yesterday. So fast sunday came and the M&M's jsut sat and stared at me ALL DAY! I was so sad that I could eat them but I was not going to let Satan's temptation get the best of me. So I made it to dinner successfully. Keep in mind that we also went and took cookies to come people. Excellent self control if I do say so myself. So I ate a wonderful dinner with my favorite family in the ward when they brought us my favorite thing... dessert! I took one of the small chocolate cookies and died. The miracle is that I didnt actually die! :D no just kidding.... So as Sister Brown was about to take a cookie she noticed something.. a nut. Thats when everything came to a stand still. SHE IS ALLERGIC TO TREE NUTS! (Imagine this next sentence in slow motion) So I slapped the cookie out of her hand! ok... That didnt realy happen but it would have been funny. So Sister Brown couldnt eat the cookie, no dessert for her. So we made it back to our car when I remembered that I had M&M's! So, there it is, a true Christmas miracle! Thank you mother for loving me enough to send M&M's that my companion could eat for dessert yesterday!
Hope you all had a great week! 
I love you!

Happy Thanksgiving

Well. Just another great week out here in Kentucky! Just living the high life. haha. It has been great. The weather has been wonderful! No snow! lots of rain though which I am perfectly happy with! I am just grateful that my mission president has ever sister companionship in a car! :) 
I hope you all had a great thanksgiving. I had a wonderful dinner with a family. It was yummy and so fun! 
Things are going great here. Sister Brown is AWESOME and we are still having a lot of fun doing the work of the Lord. This is the lord's work. He has a plan for each and every one of us. It is our job to figure it out though! 
Miracle of the week:
We have been teaching a woman who wants to get baptized but her husband wont let her. So every fridaywe go to lunch with her and her husband to soften his heart. Well... it is working because he opened up to us and is going to let us work with him now and THEY BOTH CAME TO CHURCH! 
Miracles seriously can happen! Only by the grace of God!
I hope you all have a great week! 
I love you all!
