A fond farewell

Last night the Elders came by to bid farewell. Our second favorite Elder (sorry, but Elder Tilton started it all), Elder Fawcett (he's the tall one) is leaving, going home Wednesday morning, back to Canada!! Elder Balenzar is getting transfered too, so we'll have two new elders in the ward. At first, we didn't know what to think of Elder Fawcett. He was so different from Elder Tilton, but we grew to love him. He is a twin and the oldest of 8 kids and they live on a ranch in snowy Canada. He will be going home to 6 inches of snow and 3 inches of permafrost!! He loves cookies, so I made a batch of no bakes for him to take with him. (I wanted to make yummy choc. chip, but I was out of eggs and it was Sunday). We wish EF luck in his new adventure and thank him for his friendship and example to our kids and Tiffany.

Missionaries are so great. They are lucky to have you guys to help them when they are away from home. By the way, I love your Thanksgiving decor! You're very inspiring to be so festive!
