Home to Begin the New Year

This post should have been made before the last one.  
They both should have been made a month ago!
Lateness doesn't mean less love though, and we sent
off our December outgoing missionaries with
full hearts and wishes for a wonderful beginning in 2016.  

Gathering before dinner to share stories and mark 
President Mullen's scriptures.  

Sister Carlson and Sister Horne

Elder Thompson, looking every bit the returning missionary!

Part of the Mullen's family visited during Christmas. 
In order to give Sister Mullen time to be with them,
we went to The Old Spaghetti Factory 
instead of having dinner at the mission home.  

Elder Reyes and Elder Thomson

Sisters Carlson and Horne

Elder Gillette

Elder Wesche  and Elder Pawlecki

Assistants:  Elders Dyer and Westenskow

We filled a pretty long table.

Arriving back at the mission home for testimony meeting.

Visiting one last time with President Mullen. 

Ready to head for home.  

Hamming it up for the camera!
