Twenty Sixteen

This week started off with another snow storm. Our cars were grounded all day Monday, but thankfully it was a P-Day. After we walked up to the Trail Center and emailed home, we decided we would make the best of being stuck in our apartment. Once we got home, we jumped in our pajamas, made some waffles and watched movies all day. We had so much fun being lazy.

On New Year's Eve, our Stake threw a party at the church to celebrate. There were fireworks, snacks, and we even got to make our own party hats. Now that's what I call a party. Later that night, Sister Chappell and I decided that we would throw our own party and ring in the new year "missionary style". We set the clocks forward to 11:59 and drank some Martinelli's as we counted down to midnight. We didn't care that it was actually 10 because we figured that it was the new year somewhere in the world and we had so much fun welcoming 2016.

The end of the year also meant the end of Gingerbread. We are all so sad to see it come to close, but are so grateful for the miracles that we were able to see from it. We had almost 18,000 people come through, 60% of the tours we took were non-members and we had so many of them accept missionaries to come teach them more. That in itself is a huge miracle and we are so excited to see what happens.

I have such a good feeling about this coming year. I can't wait to see all that is to come in 2016 and I can just tell that it's going to be full of laughs, tears and so many memories.

Happy New Year, everyone!
 Waffle parties are the best kind of parties.

 We were really proud of our party hats.

 Hello, to the New Year!

We can never take ourselves seriously.
