Happy Holidays

Hello again!
 Our son, Chris, sent an e-mail to remind us that we were a little behind on our blog.  So here goes.
First of all, we hope that you had a Wonderfull Thanksgiving!  We sure did! Our daughter, Gaylynne and her sons, Kye and Drew flew out to spend a few days with us.  We picked them up at the airport in Raleigh and drove to the Outer Banks of North Carolina.  We stayed at Kill Devil Hills right on the ocean front.

We enjoyed  visiting the Wright Brothers National Memorial at Kitty Hawk where on Dec. 17, 1903 they made their first flight.   Some of us climbed the hill to the Wright Brothers National Monument.

We also saw two lighthouses while there, the Bodie Island Lighthouse built in 1872, and Currituck Beach Lighthouse built in 1875.  We were so excited when we found out that we could climb to the top!!

Back in Greenville, we enjoyed Thanksgiving at Golden Corral with Stevon and his brother Jamaal Creque.  It had most every Southern dish you could want and we all left stuffed and happy!

These pictures are of  fun times we had with our missionary district!

Taken at our favorite place to hike, River Park North which is next to the Tar River.  We love skipping rocks, taking pictures of the birds and turtles, the swamp and other interesting things along the way.

A couple of very successful days on the campuses of Eastern Carolina University and at Pitt Community College sharing the gospel.

 Above are pictures from today's Break the Fast in our YSA Branch.  Thank goodness for a lot of great cooks!!!!

               At this time of year, we are so grateful for the Gospel of Jesus Christ which has been restored to the earth by a prophet, Joseph Smith.  We are thankful for a living prophet today, President Thomas S. Monson.  We love our family, the Missionaries, the Branch, all the wonderful people here in Greenville, NC  and all our wonderful friends back home.   I guess we love y'all!!!!  We feel richly blessed!   Take care.
