The Aurora Borealis! It was so Wonderful!!!

I may or may not have screamed and flung myself out of the car when i saw it..... 

I got to go on exchanges with my mission daughter Sister Bersie! I've missed her! It was super fun :)

I love the snow :) 

The days are so short here. This is how dark it is at 8:30 AM! and it gets dark by 5!

From Me:

"Glad to hear things are going good. We love you. We sure miss you right now. It's hard to have you gone at Christmas. We keep saying stuff like, "Next year Maddy will be home for Christmas"

We love you

What are you doing on Christmas?"

From Maddy:

"haha I CANT WAIT TILL NEXT CHRISTMAS ALREADY haha seriously though like this christmas is fun and all, but it just keeps making me a little homesick and excited for next year to come already. But I am trying to live in the moment just like usual haha. It's a daily struggle sometimes. I just miss you all so much. But the time will fly by before I know it. On christmas I get to sleep in till 9, if my body will let me haha, then make crepes and open presents :) And then skype home at 1 (11am for you) and then at 2 we are going to a members for games and supper at 4 and then in the evening we are going to another members I think to watch a disney movie which will be fun. :) So that's our christmas. everyone in our ward is out of town and we hadn't been invited anywhere so a lady in another ward invited us over. so it will be good. :)"

Transfers and the new area has been good. I like Saskatoon, it's pretty. The ward is fun. They are all young families from Alberta where the dad is going to school here. Mostly law, med and dental students haha. Its fun though. Things with the comp are good. Not too much to complain about haha. The sisters are fun, I love them. It's nice not having so many so we can actually get to know them :)

This is our christmas tree hahaha we were so lucky to have a full size one in our apartment. Only half the lights work and As you can see the decorations are a little iffy.... notice the glittery deer antlers hahahahaha Those are what mom needs for her woodsy tree ;p But even if it isn't the prettiest, it still makes me happy :)

It was a rough night so we tried making snow angels haha. 

My first Starbucks since I've been in Canada. It was so good. Tasted like home :) haha #TypicalWhiteGirl
