Eliana had a great first Christmas, she was able to celebrate with her Satterlee and Book families -- it was a time we will treasure because hopefully at this time next year we will be in Spain! Smiling little Santa!
The day after Christmas Kevin headed to Urbana -- a huge missions conference held every 3 years. This year it was held in Saint Louis. He helped represent LAM and had a chance to hear some amazing speakers. It was a very confirming and inspiring time. Eliana and I had a more low-key new year celebration, we played some games with my family and then went to bed early -- still it was nice, we were glad to have Kevin home safely the next day though!
