|In November we said good bye to an extraordinary missionary Elder Wadsworth. He served as one of the Assistants to the President and did a superb job. He was always calm and kind, even when there was chaos brewing.|
|We had a few days off for Thanksgiving so headed to Henderson to spend|
time with precious children and grand children, and to feast on Sonna's amazing cooking.
Ruthie, Riley and Reggie enjoying the feast. They were each given a future missionary name tag to remind them of the important work they will do some day.

|Sister Wade with grand daughter Ruthie.|
|Also said good bye to Sister Haffen. She was with us in Anaheim for several months|
waiting for her visa. It finally arrived and she headed off to Argentina.
|The Christmas season brings with it mountains of packages for the missionaries. |
Between Thanksgiving and Christmas, this was a normal day's delivery.
Sister Butterfield, Elder Rogers, and Elder Hyatt sorting it all out.
|Elder Walker departed just before Christmas, but not before celebrating his birthday. Elder Colbert, one of his old companions baked him a cake just they way he likes it...without frosting.|
|The official cake cutter.|
|During the holidays we worked at the Creche Exhibit put on by the Orange Stake. |
It was an elegant event and the nativities were amazing.
For some silly reason, this is the only one we took a picture of. The Moose Nativity.
|One of the joys of Christmas by the ocean. Santa made out of sand.|
|One of the duties of being a missionary is helping investigators break some bad habits so they can get baptized.|
Good work Elder Wade!

|Elder Morin is a giant missionary...both spiritually and physically. |
We love that he's humble enough to pick up the feather duster and help out around the office.
|His companion, Elder Hansen. Together we call them the Twin Towers. Armed with the|
gospel and a feather duster, they are forces to be reckoned with.

|We love being missionaries and are so very thankful for the opportunity to serve.|
|Happy Birthday Elder Wade! You are dearly loved, especially by your daughter, Savannah.|
|Marty, Alex, Missy and Brad.|
