Allen's MTC pictures

Sorry for goofing up the previous post, I'm just learning how to do this!

Here are a few pictures of Allen in the MTC that I thought you might enjoy. I posted his address a couple of days ago. His P-day is on Wednesdays. His Birthday is Febuary 5th for anyone wanting to wish him Happy Birthday!

Here is his last e-mail:

things are going well here, its cold, but im tough... ill go and try to find a pack, it'l be a little tough though, because i can only go on P-days, and i don't have a car, so that means we have to ride everywhere... this can be tough, but ill see what i can do. Its pretty windy today, but most of the snow has melted, which means... MuD... and its a groady brownish orange mud, and it makes your pants look crappy --.-- Ive been feed well, thanks for the care package, it turned out that we had the chance to go at like 9:30 at night to get food after i wrote the email saying that i probably wouldn't go shopping... Not a whole lot has happened this week, other then we have been trackting and pretty often and one of our investigators is reading in the Book of Mormon and we think that he likes it. Oh, last night, we went over and played games at another companionships apartment <> and was up till 1:30 AM before we got home and to bed, and we also set off the alarm to the house which Frazzeled me for a bit because i was the one that set it off >.<> Oh well, always fun... Love you guys tones and happy Birthday again! Tell everyone Hi for me and that i love em...

I love taking pictures of myself in the mirror!

Fun on the run.

This season found us off on a run down to Palm Springs to be with family and to meet families. We spent a few days with Pat and Kent down in the desert. Our dear friend Leesa came from LA to Palm Springs to take us walking through Palm Canyon. We stayed at Uncle Scott's house (thanks loads) after a long, wet day at Disneyland. We spent time with Kim, Charles and Ethne (Kate's cousins) and the kids had a good time. We had fun but of course it is back to doing the work, school, and church stuff.
Wishing you all well this new year.

Happy New Year!

This is how our kids bring in the New Year!

I hope everyone had a fabulous New Years Eve! Bryce and I decided that we would observe the annual tradition of going to his brothers house for New Years again this year. Things are very low-key and very entertaining. I have found that going out into the masses is highly overrated. We had some really bad-for-you food, played some games, and to top it off, we set off $500 worth of illegal fireworks. Definately the highlight of the night. Oh and did I mention we were without the kids? Well, maybe I should say THAT was the highlight of the night. So, nothing to excititng to report, but fun nevertheless. I hope everyone had a great New Years Eve and continues to have a great New Year!
