Welcome Dinner - Elder and Sister Goo

Saturday, January 24 was a relaxing day.  We woke up to the most snow of the season so far.  We enjoyed a day in our apartment.  Jerry colored my hair and it really turned out great.  I did some cleaning in the apartment, took down the little Christmas tree, and we finished the puzzle.  We took a little nap and then got ready to go to the Mission Home.  

We drove to the CVS Pharmacy and bought some almonds for President Morgan's birthday.  Sister Morgan had made the most delicious chicken enchiladas, chips, rice, guacamole, salsa and apple pie for dessert.  It was a dinner to welcome the new Chinese couple, the Goos.  They were very sweet and will make such a great contribution in their MLS Mission in China Town.  They invited the office couples, the APs, Elders Smith and Duvall, so with the Morgan's, we had 10 in all.  We all fit around their dining room table.  I had made a birthday card earlier in the day for President Morgan and also Pete Litster.

Today we enjoyed a sunny drive to the New Rochelle 2nd Ward.  One of the high councilman Brother Adam Fleming told about the Mormon Tabernacle Choir coming to New York in July.  Jerry came home and ordered 6 tickets.  I emailed Jeanne, Judi and Sue about coming to NYC and going with us.

We are studying the New Testament in Gospel Doctrine class and Ezra Taft Benson this year in Relief Society and Priesthood meeting.  The lesson today in RS was on prayer.  We came home and cooked potatoes in our little pressure cooker, and had chili over them, with corn and pineapple.  Later we both had a yogurt.

We loved having face time with JD, Sarah, Bergen, Anders and Emme.  They had been skiing at Beaver Mountain, Bergie's first try.  Emme can say so many animal sounds now and her hair has turned more blonde.  They have been looking at a new home about a mile from their present home.  It has a steep road to get there, but a flat driveway.  They would be in the same ward, schools for the kids, and it has a swimming pool.  JD and Anders had built a big Star Wars figure out of Legos.   They had their Ward Conference today and their Home Teachers came while we were talking to them.  It was wonderful to talk with our kids.

I sent some pictures to Sister Morgan from the Sisters Conference.  It has been a wonderful day!  We are in Ether, almost finished with reading the Book of Mormon.
