 At district meeting Elder Stulen from Sweden presented all missionaries with a gingerbread cookie with our names on them.  They were made by his mom and sent to us.
 Sister Ollerton prepares table decorations for missionary Christmas Eve dinner.  She organized it all.
 The cooks, Sister Dracocardos, Sister Andros, Sister Charles and Sister Davis, are putting final touches on the meal.  It was great!!
 President Charles, Elder Andros, Elder Davis and President Dracocardos are waiting to be first in line!!
 It was a great meal and everyone had a good time eating every last morsel.
 We all went up to the CES room for gifts and the program .
 Elder Kopischke from Germany got a fish as a white elephant gift.  Everyone wanted it.  It traded three times and then it died 2 days later. 
 Elder Andros wants to trade for the fish.
 Sister Braaksma from Germany and Sister Simmons from Orem are having a great time!
 Sister Bell gets the gift she wanted as husband, Elder Bell, watches.
