So, just in case anyone was wondering, TAYLOR ORTON RETURNS next Tuesday. Please give her my regards in the form of hugs and treats and messages on FB. Please and thank you.
Also, just in case anyone wanted to be incredible and send me birthday and/or Christmas packages/letters. Apparently our last chance before Christmas to get packages will be December 3rd. Which is just....really sad. But you have time!
It was a pretty normal week here in Alessandria. I actually...can't really remember what happened. But I'm sure it was great! Yesterday I was pretty sick, so we were told to stay inside, but the day before that we headed down to Savona because I had to do a training at their joint district meeting with the missionaries of San Remo. It was lots of fun! Tonight I'll head to Torino to do a scambio there. Then hopefully we'll have a scambio with the Genova sisters next Monday/Tuesday. We were supposed to do one with them after the district meeting on Monday, but they had really bad flood warnings so they had to stay inside for a couple of days. Anyway, needless to say, it's really rainy here in Italy these days. And it's getting COLD. Hence all the Christmas decorations in our apartment. I mean if you have to go out in the cold all day, you might as well have Christmas to come home to, right??
Anyway, that's about it. The missionary work here is just plugging right along. Can't believe we're already to the middle of November! Hope you're all loving late fall/early winter. It's the most wonderful time of the year, after all! Love you lots! AMORE.
We got a little bit obsessed with Christmas this week.... And made a paper Christmas tree. And then ate lunch at the foot of it. :)
Us on Halloween with the girls
Me and my dear, A.
One night we were TRYING to teach the girls a lesson, but M.V. and S. disappeared. We finally came and found them in the kitchen making us a treat. What great hostesses!
