Thank you so much for the email and for the pictures! It sounds like you had a great Kerstmas with the hele familie (entire family). Cierra looks really happy and Kasey looks content with the bone she got. It was so great to be able to talk with all of you, and I really enjoyed seeing everyone. I had a really good week and it snowed two days ago for the first time! It's getting really cold now. New Year’s is almost here! Are you guys doing anything for New Year’s? Are you still on vacation from school? We have interviews on New Year’s Eve and then we have to go straight home to our apartments. We can look at vuurwerken (fireworks) from our window but we're not allowed outside. We have already seen and heard a bunch of fireworks and they're really loud here. It’s normal to see the fireworks, like the ones on the Fourth of July, around here. Every one lights them off and they're so loud! I'm so happy to hear that you had a great Christmas with the familie. Tell everyone I say, “Hi” and that I love them! That’s so awesome that Cierra gets to go to Italy so soon! Send lots of pics, Ci! Say, “Hi” to any missionaries you might see when you're there! Tot volgende week! Love you guys! Also we went caroling in Den Haag! It was loads of fun and the people loved it. We hopped on the train with the zusters and went to Den Haag and met our zone in the station. We went in the middle of the busy centrum and began to sing Christmas hymns and fun Christmas songs. It was a little awkward at first but then people began singing with us and taking pictures with us and taking videos of us. It was really fun and we spread some Christmas spirit.
