Have a Holly, Jolly...Summer?

HEYYYY. First things first. This has been such a fulfilling p-day for anyone who cares. Went bowling with the district this morning for free and got free breakfast. Score. Then off to Value Village, Goodwill Outlet, Bath n Body, Old
Navy, and Chipotle! I'VE BEEN STUCK IN MACHIAS AND FINALLY GOT TO GO TO EVERETT SO THIS WAS A BIG DEAL FOR ME OK?

I feel like a lot happened this week and I don't know where to start, I'm stressed.

Ok. We taught the Stop Smoking Program to Shirley! She is almost 60 and has been smoking since she was 15. She has the biggest desire to quit and when you follow this program to a T, you WILL be a non-smoker in one week. And guess whaaaaat?! SHIRLEY IS A NON-SMOKER! She wanted us to teach her the lessons so we did that a few days later and now she is on date to be baptized June 17th! Gonna be real she's kinda weird. Like she said "well what do I get baptized in because I ain't gettin' baptized in no bikini." No Shirley, no one wants that.

Miranda is still perfect so not a huge update there. Other than, we realized her date to be baptized was over Memorial Day weekend, so we pushed it to June 10th
because of finals and stuff. JUNE 10TH AT 2PM PEOPLE I'M STOKED.

WE HAD A CHRISTMAS PARTY THIS WEEK! One day it was freakishly cold and rainy and felt like December. We went to an older couples house, the Cox's. In honor of the weather, they made us hot chocolate and we listened to Christmas music. Was a throwback for sure. For the remainder of the day, and the following day, we listened to ONLY Christmas music! Oh my gosh. Sister Nelson has some Taylor Swift
Christmas music about Jesus and it was the best thing that has happened since sliced bread. Merry Christmas everybody.

P.S. SKYPING WAS SO GOOD! LOVED SEEING MY FAMILY AND HEARING THEIR VOICES! BEST DAY EVER! HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY.

Until next week.....

Love,

Sister Hilton
