Charles Angels in Bethlehem!! December 16, 2013 So for Christmas, we havent gotten any guidelines on the calling etc. Which is kinda frustrating. We are planning on calling in the afternoon, so you can go to the dinner etc, and do Christmas morning and hopefully Stuart and Lindy will be done when I do call so we can all be on. Do you want me to call or Skype? Skype would be more complicated, but it would be fun to see everyone, or it could be frustrating trying to listen, and so yeah. Im thinking I might just call, thoughts? Oh and I hope Garret can be on too! Do you have a number for him or does he have to call you? We can set a certain time this week to decide. We have been invited to a members house, I asked when we should come and they responded with, the past missionaries came at 6am in their PJs so whenever you want to get here is fine. I guess they get gifts for the missionaries and put them under the tree too so it will be fun to go over there! But then its just eating and calling all day, so we can call you whenever. If you want to talk to Stuart and Lindy and see when they will be done with Christmas morning we can schedule that. I was thinking more around noon here? Which would be 10 in OR and 11 in Idaho... if Ive done that right. What are your thoughts? We can do it later too if you want. Nor sure what the Strassers all do that day. And the white hand book says 30-45 minutes of call time, this is President Andersons first Christmas in the field so we are not sure if he will allows us more time or tell us to stick to that. So I will let you know when I find out. So hopefully noon or after works for everyone, let me know! So the Charlies Angels in Bethlehem? SURPRISE everyone, Im in a trio! Its myself, Sister Hyatt (hi at) and Sister Wiehl (wheel). Its fun. Sister W is 21 and Sister H is 20, its a hoot. I was VERY surprised when they announced it at transfers, they came over and we hugged and took a picture and they said that my face was astonished! So its been fun. We got a bed that night HUZZAH! Its taken weeks in previous transfers, but we rearranged the furniture and got everything fixed up. Now we just need to ask the ward for a desk and maybe another dresser, we shall see. Caroling and donuts will be fun! Let me know how it goes without the metronome this year! Hopefully it is fun. Are any of the BArfites coming home for Christmas? I hope so. And Tyson is waiting for Andrew huh? How does Deanna feel about that? Should we guess whose the first to steam it open and reseal it? haha. Let me know when he gets it! Maybe one of them boys will come here to Philly... how weird would that be? ... very... very werid.... but fun too. Zoo lights! I think that is a better idea than caroling with all them boys haha. Caroling is fun but when the majority of people dont want to be there well, its not as fun. And I dont think I have been to Zoo lights since then. We tried last year but it was closed on new years eve :( oh well, another time! But that would be fun to do with them every year or something like that. We havent gotten Christmas boxes yet, they didnt give them to us at transfers, which is good because Im not sure how we would have gotten them home with two sisters belongings in our car. We had to ask the spanish elders in our area to bring back two of the big suitcases for us because we couldnt fit 3 bodies and all their stuff in our little Corolla! But it was good. Also we have gotten a lot more snow! They rescheduled the ward Christmas party which was supposed to be on Saturday, and then they cancelled church as well because we got a snow/ice storm. Our district leader text us and told us to go home if we didnt have appointments on saturday night around 6. Luckily we were home because we got the majority of the storm in Bethlehem. But we went and got some soup and bread and sandwich stuff so we had food etc. We were fine. We did get cabin fever after planning for a few hours and went out and shoveled some of the side walks. The neighbors were peeking out of their windows staring at us quite obviously... which was uncomfortable. But we didnt care, we were hoping we would get to meet some of our other neighbors, but it was still snowing so they were staying in and probably thinking we were crazy! Oh well, we did it! Well other than that it was a rather slow week. Pday, packing sister Carrigan up, our appointments pretty much all bailed because of weather or sickness, then transfers, lots of stop bys, meeting active members, our weekly planning, unpacking the new sisters, a snow storm, etc etc. Its been a rather slow week but a good introductory one to get two new sisters into the area. Its good! And Ive been here for a while, so I will talk to you soon! Love you all! Hope all is well :) Thank you for the packages, letters, prayers and thoughts. I appreciate them all. Love to all! Love, sister Wilson :)
