Third time is a charm>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Dear Family and Friends,

I do not know how much time I will have to share this blog with you today.  Our time is very limited these days.  I have tried to write this 3 times but maybe this will be a charm.  I need to hurry before the Elders come for dinner.

We hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving.  We did.  We were able to attend the temple (5,5 hours away) on the Saturday before Thanksgiviing.  This is how we have done it many times before with our Stake in Prescott.  We were able to go with our branch.  Their were two sealings and wonderful experiences. I will show the pictures:

It was a great day.  There was one family that are not in the pictures since they had to leave early.  All their children wanted for Christmas was to go to the temple.  
We then enjoyed a Thanksgiving dinner with all the trimmings with the young elders.  There were 10 of them and 8 of us.
Apple pie turned out good but the sweet potatoes were a little strange.  Their yams are whitish and the marshmellows are pink.  It made for a strange concoction.
The turkeys were really expensive, around $5.50 a pound.  They were quite small but it all tasted really good.  
We are doing a  Canadian tradition of saying wht you are thankful for an throwing a rock over your shoulder.
This is Siter Campbell with the Primary children, minus three, after our Sacrament Meeting program.
Here is Elder Campbell and his first baptism.  He is a boy that we traveled 1.5 hours to teach.  His mother wanted him baptized.  The two of them are the only members in the township.  He is a joy!
There is so much to tell you but I must go and make the biscuits for dinner.  We love you and I will hurry bak!
Hurrah for Israel!
Elder and Sister Campbell
