I love this place so much!!!

This week sure was eventful! Let me just tell you some of the things that happened;
Sister Heathcock hit her 3 month click day! My baby girl is growing up so fast! I love her so much!
We spent new years eve with, guess who.. the Raisors. Cory, who is a physical therapist had actually had his torn meniscus operated on the day before, so he was not doing so well. Basically we spent the evening with Crystal and the kids. Cory is doing a ton better now, but has a long way to go and is still in plenty of pain, so if you wouldn't mind praying for him, he would sure appreciate it. :) Anyway, It was a fun night. No, we did not stay up, we were in bed by 10:30.  Missionaries gotta sleep!
Thursday we had a good district meeting, and later that night we had dinner with this couple in our ward, the Zieglers. brother Ziegler is a chef, and made us PRIME RIB for dinner. OH, and dessert was served in chocolate bowls, topped with chocolate pearls. So awesome. We felt very loved- and full!
Friday night we met Justin and Hayleigh for a late dinner. It was good. I love Them. Unfortunately, they will not be getting baptized this week, and it doesn't look like it'll be anytime too soon. They need to get married, and satan is trying to make that as difficult as possible. They just need some time to grow in faith. We will keep working with them for the time being, and try to help them! Please pray for them.
Saturday, I HIT MY 18 MONTH MARK!!! What!?!? We had dinner with our landlord's family, the Morgans. They are so sweet. They are catholic, and always tell us what an incredible thing we are doing, and how much they admire us. Again, I felt so loved.After dinner, we went to a members house, the Saints, to teach their grandson, Quinnell. He is the sweetest, most intelligent, most prepared 9 year old boy I've ever met. He is living with his "Nana and Papa" right now, and has been coming to church and reading scriptures everyday for 2 months. He is like a little sponge, it's amazing, he retains everything he's learning- and he believes all of it. We taught the restoration, and when we asked him if he would be baptized, he said "Yup!" Haha, kids are the best! They are so close to the spirit. We also set a tentative date for valentine's day. :) Pray for him!

I love you all so much. I can't believe how this time is flying by. I feel so blessed every day.
See you all in a week and a half!

 Fried alligator! It tastes like chicken and fish together. Pretty interesting!

 Prayed, went to the bathroom, and came back to this on my bed. My companion is so cute.
She got me a sunstone necklace for my 18 month click day. :)

 We woke up to this beautiful sight on Sunday morning.
Luckily we made it to church without any trouble!

This is what it looks like right now. The snow went for about 5 hours
this afternoon, and left a thick, slippery blanket on everything.
