Thanksgiving 2010 Follow-up

Hey y'all! I hope your thanksgiving was amazingly delicious!

We had four dinnners but two of them had to cancel. One had really sick kids, and the other the dad got called in to work so they had thanksgiving the day after. But we still went to three places, two for food and dessert and one for just dessert and talking. It was really fun. Kinda felt bad because Elder Bohanan didn't know anybody, but I guess that's what happens when transfers are two days before.

It was really fun to see my awesome cousins!! I wanted them to come before transfers because Elder Barney was awesome and I knew he wouldn't get distracted at all. He's very focused, and I wasn't sure if I was going to get a companion that was easily distracted, so it worked out perfectly. And, I don't think that Elder Bohanan would get distracted either.

Elder Bohanan-man is pretty cool. He is from the complete opposite end of the US from Floridia. He's from fairbanks Alaska. Pines and palms, beaches and snow banks, grizzlies and gators....frozen and..melting.....anyway, hes been out for 6 months and was born (missionarily speaking) in my first area: Kaysville East! He is the youngest out of five in his family and he's "always prefered the color blue-green" and he likes vanilla or chocolate ice cream.

As far as Christmas goes, the Hill's that we live with already have our day planned. We are gonna wake up and at 5am and go over to the Brookes (they're friends that they eat dinner with every Sunday), and open presents, which should be fun. Then we'll have breakfast and the Brookes will probly talk to their missionary son. Sis Hill has a laptop with a camera that she said I could probly use. I would have to set up the skype account tho.

As far as warmness, I am doing pretty good. Better than the Alaskan it seems. He's always cold. The scarf that I have is a lifesaver and I love it, but it's getting a little beat up and its holey, I mean theres holes in it, cause it was crocheted ( <---weird word). So a missionary from canadia is giving me one of his six that he has, and also a fam that we ate turkey at is gonna get me one. I need to get some of those hot hands warmer things. Elder Barney took all of his with him =(

There is nothing specific that I can think of right now that I want for Christmas... I guess something that won't be hard to come home with.. please no Kenneth Cope or typical lds music. I am kind of sick of that, haha. But I will think of this stuff this week.

Thanks for all of your supprt and love, and have a great week!!

Elder Hale =)
