12/28/11 it doesnt feel like christmas, i havent left any cookies on anyones doorstep. then he reminded me that we were offering something much better

sup daddy.
yeah i thought that too...its three days later. not too much new going on here haha. same old marvelous work weve been at for the last year or so...i didnt really feel too home sick, dont worry. mostly just because of krew and weston, but its all good, ill get to see them soon enough. and im trying to take advantage of this work as best i can and really put in practice president eyerings talk to just do a little more work than you thought you could. that way we dont have regrets right? and not just on the mission but in every moment of life. oh and dont worry about the pipe, we already called, theres a guy coming to fix it either this week or next. and sounds like the lakers are doing well good to hear. bynum got suspension?? that a boy! haha anyway, love ya pops. and thanks for the card slash ensign. i really enjoyed it :)
