Winter Sunrise

This morning as I headed to Chillicothe Branch, I came up over a hill and saw this beautiful sunrise. I just had to stop, turnaround, and take this picture. It captures northwestern Missouri winters so perfectly! And to make this scene even more meaningful, this is only two miles from land that Cyril Call had purchased back in 1838.

Sunrise only about 2.1 miles from Cyril Call's land in Tinney Grove, MO.

Thanksgiving Pictures of Our Missionaries

We are so grateful that members in Mary Ann’s and John’s missions not only had them over for Thanksgiving dinner, but that they texted us pictures of the two of them as well! Looks like they are having delicious feasts!

Delicious Thanksgiving Dinner

Mom and Rebecca did a fantastic job preparing an absolutely delicious Thanksgiving dinner this year. And the table setting was beautiful as well.  They made a new stuffing that we haven’t had before, and I absolutely loved it!

Another yummy Thanksgiving dinner!

My Ugly Christmas Sweater

Prior to the creation of the Far West Missouri Stake, the Liberty Stake had planned a youth dance for 21 November. Knowing the new stake would be created by then, this dance was planned for two simultaneous locations–one in Liberty and one in Cameron.

A highlight of the stake dance was an Ugly Sweater Contest. Not wanting to be the odd man out, I asked Rebecca if she would make me an ugly Christmas sweater. And boy, did she do an awesome job! The picture doesn’t do this sweater justice–or should I say, injustice? Note the jingle bells she attached to both sleeves, so every time I moved my arms, I made a sound! 🙂

Don't you just love this sweater?
