Elder Parkinson still had his Pday today, but his message was short and sweet. I'm okay with that since we get to talk with him tomorrow!!!!! It will be the best Christmas gift ever!!!! We haven't spoken with Jordan since May 13, so we are very excited around here. Luckily, Elder Parkinson did send a sim card last week so there are some fun pictures to post.
Elder Parkinson: Hey mom. This will be short, but I love you so much. I am doing great! The 25 days of Christmas is going great and we really like doing it. Elder _____ loves the glasses! I am loving it out here and I will call you tomorrow morning.
