You'll never regret being too kind :)

The jumping picture!
To the BESTEST family in the entire world. 

So, as I was listening to conference this weekend, I was reminded just how amazing our family is. I am so grateful for the opportunity I had to grow up in a family that is centered on the gospel of Jesus Christ. I am so glad that we had the habit of reading and praying together daily, of always having fhe together, and being able to see now the blessings that came from that! 

Most of our appointments fell through this week, but it all ended up well. We went tracting one night and this dad let us in. It was pretty cold and we were grateful to be let in. We talked for a minute, but his wife was in the shower, so we set up a time to come back. Saturday, we knocked on their door again and Leslie opened up. We introduced ourselves and she said she didn't have time then, but that she wanted us to come back. She asked about the church, how often we could come teach her, how she can get to church, and if it costs anything to keep the pamphlet we gave her. Legit!! Super excited to go back tonight and teach her with a member that lives around the corner :) Miracles! 
My comp and I with our bigotes :)   And...Martinez in the background. Hna Browning looks like a killer...creepy! 
Our pizzas we made as a district between sessions on Sunday...soooo good! 
We are still teaching the Maldonado's and working with them to prepare for Jayden's baptism in a few weeks, for Hermano to receive the Melchizedek priesthood, and to enter the temple in the next few months. Super exciting! We saw them practically every other day this week between fhe, dinner, and teaching their son for baptism. :) They are such an amazing family! 

And pizza time...take one! We had to try it out first to make sure it tasted good of course! :)

This weekend was super fun! We ended up going over to church for all the sessions of conference. Saturday sessions were intense! I felt like we were all being told to spiritually prepare right now for the second coming. But, it was so cool! I am starting to realize more and more what it really means to give our heart to God. We must really be devoted to Him and find ways to give Him our all. It's difficult, but it's so worth it! 

Oh yeah...almost forgot. But I got a hair cut on Monday! If you saw the pictures you prolly already saw that though! It's super short and weird! haha but I love it! 

Sorry kinda random today...
But Sunday was incredible. We stayed at church all day to listen, and between sessions we made home-made pizzas as a district. They were soooo good! We had a lot of fun making them and spending time together talking about conference and laughing. It's nice sometimes to just relax and enjoy some times of spiritual uplifting. 

We headed up to a baby shower Sunday night for a less-active in the ward. She was the one that had her baby last week, so kinda backwards...but that's what happens when your water breaks a month early! We just stopped by for a few minutes, but it was good because she didn't really know many people there either! Yikes! So it was good we stopped by to support :) 

Oh, and there has been a random family living with us the last week...and we finally met the mom this morning! haha They are friends of the family we actually live with, but they went to Utah for conference this weekend, and we haven't really been home to meet the family that is actually there right now. But, their two kids are so cute! Mystery solved :) Kinda awkward this morning to go put in some laundry and walk past the dad passed out on the couch...not really the introduction that I was expecting. haha 

But, my mind is kinda all over the place right now...and I can't even think what else happened this week! But, it's been great :) Conference was amazing, and definitely the highlight of my week for sure! Loved it! 

Hermana Jessica Peterson

This is the hypothetical wedding of Hermana Olson...yup we are all there. She was my red-headed comp at the beginning of my mission last year. We are serving around each other again, and she decided to draw out the wedding party. haha I'm the one with the blonde hair and purple cardigan, if you couldn't tell already! haha Pretty awesome.
