#ShareTheGift (12/01/2014)

Hola Madre!The week got too busy for me to make something for District Meeting. But I'll be making the apple cinnamon cream cheese thingy for ZTM (Zone Training Meeting) this Friday.
Tell Gma Duenas that I tried my best with the Pancit recipe, but it's probably a far cry from how good hers is <3.
Lots of activities planned for the wards in December, two ward Christmas Dinner events and a Cantata, and we are excited to invite as many people as possible to them.
I super love the mitt you made! It's so nice and warm. Sister Slater and Sister Collins liked it too.  Yep! They came and dropped in on me for my bday! It made me so so happy!
I got to have my MTC companion and my trainer for my birthday and they of course made MY cake. You sneaky mommy :) Thank you so so much! <Mom Note: Sister Collins contacted me by email the week before Sister Duenas' birthday and asked for the recipe for Sister Duenas' favorite cake so that she could make it and surprise her for her birthday. What a sweetheart Sister Collins is. >

Sister Collins made Sister Duenas' favorite cake for her birthday <3
Yes, I did get my birthday box from crazy mommy! I can't believe you actually sent me a mixer! The wards don't know what's coming for them now. Mwahhahahaha! Crazy baker mode is getting cranked UP!!
This past week we were invited to two Thanksgiving dinners and two birthday dinners.
The Wells family showed me lots of birthday love too. I just love these girls so much! Thank you guys!

Nikki is doing great. I feel like her baptism was a miracle. Not just with being able to get through the whole process without any issues, but also with the timing.
We got another person on date to be baptized this month! Though she's decided to go over to the YSA (Young Single Adult) Ward, so we won't be the ones teaching her anymore. BUT she's going to be BAPTIZED, so that's all that matters . Her baptism date is Dec 27th, so we'll still be able to go to her baptism before either of us leaves. We are so so excited for her!! Her name is Shelby.
The missionaries aren't getting together for opening Christmas presents that I know of. But we will get together for the movie, just the Zone though. Each zone gets to chose their own movie for Xmas and then for New Years. We will watch them both at which ever member wants to have us all over. I'm such girl! Totally got teary eyed when I saw your cookies. Miss you. For Christmas decorations, I have just the white Christmas tree that Lynn sent me. I'm so sad that I left my Christmas lights at the Grants Pass apartment, but I'll just go to Good Will and find something good :). Thrift store shopping is the bomb! <Mom Note: psssssh...You will not go buy lights. I will send you some multi-colored Christmas lights....'tis a requirement for feeling extra 'jolly' during the holidays ;) >

Always, but especially this time of year, we are reminded in John 3:16 "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."
There is a beautiful new movie about Christ and Christmas. The first gift of Christmas was a simple gift given by a father to all his children, to us. He gave us His Son, the Christ. HE is the gift. #ShareTheGift 
I got to go now. Tell everyone hi for me! And I send my love! 
Xoxoxoxooooo --> just for you mommy Love you!! Bye bye! TTM
