HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MOM AND OWEN LAST WEEK! :)
THank you for those pictures of the Gomez family! That's so cool that they're all together! And what ciudades do Hugo, Carlos, y Juan live in??  Tampico, Tamolipas? l love that everyone is smiling in that picture. Haha people here don't like to smile for pictures :P
Well crazy news of the week, Elder Allen is from ldaho and he KNOWS DALLIN HARDY!!!!!! Such a small world.
Well this week has been great! We have been working a TON with one of our investigators, she's a single mom with 3 adorable kids. Her baptism date is for the 11th. We were so so sad cause on Friday afternoon she told us that she probably wasn't going to be able to come to church or her baptism cause she had to work. BUT on Saturday morning she texted us "guess who's coming to church??" And guess what??? SHE QUIT!!!! So she can go to church and be baptized! We are so proud of her. lt's a huge step of faith that she's taken, and the Lord is going to bless her so much.
l love this area so much! Haha my companions are still super afraid to knock doors when it gets dark, but l try to get them to anyway :)
FELIZ DIA DE LOS REYES MAGOS!!!!! We're totally having a rosca today. l hope y'all put out your shoes.
Oh and Happy New Year! We stayed up all the way till 10:30! Haha and we ate 12 grapes during the last 12 seconds of "2013" to have good luck! l only got 5 shoved in my mouth. But l guess that's alright cause we did it at the missionary version of midnight (9:00) But all in all, it was a great year. l feel like l just barely started 2013 and left on my mission, but alas, time passes by.
Well... this is about all l have to say! l will send pictures. But if you want a constant stream of my life, check out Beatriz Garcia on Facebook. Hahaha she's documented it all! (Mom you should be her friend too!) She's pretty much the best :) Hasta Ver

Pictures. Hahaha these are from CiCi's Pizza. l may or may not have dared these poor people to eat insane amounts of pizza............>:) 

They were so angry with me! But it was THEIR choice :)

The hand signals mean "21 pieces of Pizza" Melville broke the previous record. So the new record is 31!!!
CUte little Adan and Nashley! l love them!

Also... never mix an elder and wash off tatoos!

l have  aTON more pictures to add but only 5 minutes so l probably will have to send them another time :P

Note from Nancy - - I did become friends with Sister Garcia on FB - and found out we are probably related :)   She is an Arredondo - and I have done tons of family history work on Medardo's dad's side - - and we have lots of Arredondo's from the same area of Mexico she is from :)  Small world.
