A "White Christmas" in Georgia!!!

Hello family!!!

Oh my goodness, it was sooooo great getting to talk to y'all on Christmas Day!!! I loved hearing your voices! Chris, you sound so mature!! Goodness, I've only been gone four months, what are you going to sound like in May?! haha! How was Harry Potter?!?! Thank y'all sooooo much for the gifts!!! I love everything!!! I'm wearing the pink sweater today--it is sooo cozy! And I got so excited when I saw the Summer Hill lotion! Now I get to smell like my Mama! :) Chris, I love my Snoopy and Woodstock!!! I opened Grandma's gift, as well--she sent me a really pretty jacket! I love it! I'm going to write her a thank you note hopefully today, and I'll try to get some pictures for her, too! Oh, and Sister Fine loves the slipper socks! She asked me to thank y'all for her!

Annnd...can y'all believe it snowed on Christmas Day?!?! I never ever thought I'd get a "White Christmas" in Georgia (my first one, too!)! And how cool that it started coming down when we were on the phone! They ended up cancelling church yesterday for the whole stake (we're in the Cartersville Stake)! We were also grounded from our car on Saturday night and Sunday morning because of the snow and ice, so we ended up tracting in the snow yesterday was freezing!! The roads were still pretty slick, too--I was so nervous, baha! There is still snow on the ground today, too! Our district got together at a park in Dallas for p-day, and we got to play in the snow for a bit--it was sooo fun! Two elders had brought some makeshift snowboards, and I ended up trying them a couple of times, haha! So fun!! I didn't get very far down before I fell, but it was still super fun! And no broken bones, yay! haha! :) My fingers are still pretty numb, though, haha! It's making it fun to type!

Sister Collier is home!!! Her plane was scheduled to land today at 12:28! Eek!!! We are still hoping to keep it a surprise that I'm still here, but it sounds like she's probably figured it out...she was asking her dad a ton of questions when she called home, haha! We'll see what happens! I can't wait to see her again!!! The Collier's are definitely some of my favorite people ever!! We went over to see them last night and to give them their Christmas gifts from us, and we got to see their Christmas tree--they're waiting to do Christmas with Sister Collier! So fun!

Can y'all believe this is the last week of 2010?! Holy gravy, time is flying by! And I'm going to be a missionary for all of 2011!!! How cool is that?! I don't want to waste a minute of it!!

Sorry, I don't really have much to say this week, since we just talked like two days ago...but I sure do love and miss y'all tonnns!!! How was the rest of your Christmas? I forgot to ask what y'all were doing for Christmas dinner! Do you have any plans for New Year's Eve? I know I already asked this, was Harry Potter?! haha! Well, hope everything is going great for y'all!! I miss you bunches, but I know this is where I'm supposed to be right now! I'm so thankful to be here serving Heavenly Father and His children!!!

Love y'all!!

    I hope you got my Christmas card. It sounds like you are having a splendid year and I love reading your letters and seeing the photos on your card. As promised, I will be sending a letter to ring in the new year! I hope this comment gets to you somehow to let you know that I'm thinking about and praying for you. Have a happy and safe New Year!
