So, Happy Christmas, everyone. :) Haha. I can't believe it's Christmas again. But I'm super excited for it. Mostly because I get to talk to my amazing family. :) I love y'all so much. What would I do without you?
Christmas in Bogota feels a lot more like Christmas. It's cold. That's basically why. Also it feels more like Christmas because now we can listen to music, and so I've been listening to amazing Christmas music. The only CD that I miss is the Come to the Manger CD. I think it's Orrin Hatch and Janice Kapp Perry? I don't actually remember. It's been a while. I only remember listening to it every year as a child. And the song that says "Beautiful is the mother of God, beautiful lizard sun." Still makes me smile when I think of that. Like the livering room, or the lansoom welcome doll. Haha. :)
Anyway, Christmas is wonderful. And this ward is too! I'm pretty sure I received the warmest welcome (despite the cold weather) I ever have to a ward here on my mission. Our ward mission leader is awesome, and very supportive (and also Argentine. Or Utahn. I'm not sure which. Haha. His spanish is Argentine, and his English is Utahn). But the ward has been very supportive. We're replacing the sister missionaries, which did an amazing job working here (as they always do), and the ward basically loves us. They're very active. I mean, apart from just attending on Sundays. We went Christmas caroling twice this week. :) It was so much fun. I didn't have my camera, or I would have taken pictures. They gave us all a Santa hat and we went around to less actives and elderly members and sang them Christmas Hymns and gave them bags of goodies. It was a blast. :)
Anyway, I'm basically just REALLY excited to talk to y'all tomorrow. :)
So, Merry Christmas to all. Don't party too hard without me. ;)
