AHH!!! I can't believe that I get to talk to you in two days! I am super duper excited. It didn't really hit me until church yesterday and I was sitting there and the thought just like hit me. so ya I am super excited. oh just heads up we will need to talk real fast on wed about my scholarship because they sent me the wrong paper work so mom I will need you to get the right ones sent to me. So this past week has been a bit crazy. But I feel like I say that every week now. Rapid is a great place to serve but it is a whole lot different than Grand Forks! This past week we have been focusing on working better with our members and it has been going really well. We have a meal co-ordinator in our ward who makes sure our meal calendar get's filled and so we have dinner pretty much every night which is a great opportunity to talk with the members about their missionary efforts. So far we haven't gotten any referrals for non-members but they have talked with us a lot about less active memebers we could go visit. So that has been good. We are also working with the Elders to get out ward co-ordination meetings with our ward mission leader to function more effectivly. So that is going well too. We share our ward with the assistants to the presidents so they are like hardly ever here they have to travel around the mission so much but it's still been good. They are some great Elders. Okay also why did I not get any pictures of the baby????? how is she doing? how is Bri? I need to know these things!!!!!! I keep telling everyone I get to be an aunt for the 6th time and I am super excited! basically I just have the coolest family out there. I talk to people about you all of the time. People are still amazed to find out that I am the shortest child in my family of 6. :) We got to go Christmas carroling last night with the other sisters from the area. It was super fun. We went to a few less actives houses and then to some people that we didn't know. The spirit was super strong when we were singing but oh my goodness was it cold!!!!! It looks like we will for sure have a while Christmas here!! Christmas day should be really good too. We are skyping in the morning. (plan between 10 and 11 I will call mom or dad before hand to let you know I am ready and to get on.) and then we are having Christmas lunch with a family and then going to the mission home for a few hours and then we have less actives to visit too! so we are excited it should be a good day. Also another side note we started this healthy living challenge with the other sisters in our zone (there are 7 sets of sisters and 7 sets of elders in our zone!!! that is crazy!!!!!! I have never served around so many sisters before. it's awesome) so anyways all 7 of us are participating and you get a point for everything you do or don't do. There are 10 things on the list and you get a point for each one. One of them is to not eat sweets except on P-day and the Holidays. I have been doing so good! we also have to eat two servings of fruits and veggies and I have actually been doing that too. Basically I am doing great! I am pretty sure I am winning so far. I joked with everyone and told them that all you needed to do for me to be healthy is make it a competition! :) but it has made a huge difference. A while back I really started to focus on working out which I have been much better at but now adding in the eating right has been awesome. maybe I will fit in my clothes better again! hahaha Oh I don't know what else to write about. Things are going good. Life moves on! the work continues. I love you all oodles and oodles! Thank you for all the love and support. It really means a lot to me! Love always your favorite sister missionary, Sister Boudreaux oh!!! P.S. I almost forgot something huge! I chopped all my hair off last week. It's in an a-line and I love it! super easy to do now. you will see it on wed.! and I can send home pictures next week. ok bye for reals this time!
