Snowmen pictures from Christmas 2010

This seemed to be the easiest place to put pictures of the snowmen and snowwomen that we sent to Sami for her 2nd Christmas in Chile.

Sami has been home for months

I obviously gave up keeping up with this blog in the final weeks of Sami's mission. I will have to try and rectify that since I want this blog to be a remembrance of her mission for her.
Sami was released from active missionary duty on Feb 22, 2011. I traveled to Chile to pick her up and we spent almost 2 weeks traveling in Chile. We were able to visit with many of the people she had met and/or taught on her mission. We ended our trip in Santiago where we had the opportunity of going through the Santiago Temple with her first mission president, Pres Chavez, and his wife. It was a wonderful experience for both of us.
Sami will be returning to Chile in January 2012. She will be married in the Santiago Temple on Feb 4 and will spend 3 or 4 years living in Chile while her husband finishes his engineering degree. They hope to eventually move to the US to be closer to us (her family) and have central heat.
