Hello my wonderful people!! 

Not much happened this week. Weeks go by so extremely fast!  Remember how I sent home pictures of how we did a bunch of yard work and  last week with PICO? Well we got a phone call from him last Monday and he had poison ivy. (bummer right) and it was so bad! He still has it! We are so lucky that we didn't get it!  We teach him almost every single night. He is such an awesome member! He has almost been baptized for a whole month!! He is amazing!

We have been teaching  a mother, daughter and son, they are awesome! They may be getting BAPTIZED.. well hopefully.. on NOVEMBER 9th! It was my first baptism date that I extended.
I love being able to teach and serve people! Oh the joys!

I love the ward I am serving in. The members help me try to learn Spanish because they are trying to learn English. So we practice both ways!
The language is coming along slowly but surely!
I wish I had more to say!!

The mission is awesome!

you are all awesome!
TEXAS is still hot. 

Love you all

P.S I love my companion! whoot go missionaries!

Hello beautiful people!
Another wonderful day here in Texas!
It is around 75 degrees and it is chilly! weird right?! yeah its weird that today is like a cold day!
Well.. where to begin! 
HANNAH SUE WIDDISON HAPPY BIRTHDAY I CANNOT BELIEVE YOU ARE 13.. AHH SO SCARY. Eat something delicious for me today :) and Hannah I wore your favorite skirt yesterday to church :)
I WENT TO THE TEMPLE!! whoot go temples! we had a recent convert, his name is FRANSICO CRUZ! and he took family names, and was able to do baptisms for his grandparents, and great grandparents! soo cool! yeah that was way neat, and the Houston temple is beyond gorgeous! 
Besides being able to go to the temple, another fun awesome thing we did, was SERVICE! yeah go service! I love serving people it is so nice and fun... except the fire ants and mosquitos are CRAY here.. haha #annoyingbugsofthesouth HAHA I just did a hashtag. wow I'm funny!
 We did yard work for a recent convert named PICO! he was baptized the Sunday before I got here, and he is honestly the most amazing guy I've ever met!  He is like 50 something, and just loves the sister missionaries! we are teaching him right now about the priesthood, and temples. and he is so in awe of temples. and he cannot wait to go! So amazing! go missionaries! anyways we did yard work with him for about 3 hours! it was so much fun! haha mom you would've loved it, we were just chopping down everything! I love serving people. It is such a good way to show the pure love of Christ. Service is an awesome opportunity to let people know how much you love them! So serve everyone you can!!
We also just met the most amazing family! oh my goodness they are GOLDEN! and she is the sweetest lady! Her name is Kristina, she is 28 and she wants to get baptized so bad! so November 9th.. BOOM lets go! how fun! I love teaching her and her family, they are seriously so wonderful.. oh and they live in the BAYOU.. haha like I thought I saw an alligator.. just joking but that would be cool.  I love teaching her and her family and she has such a strong desire to  learn more. She wants her family to be together FOREVER!

   Oh my goodness I love my mission. Spanish I still hard, but members love it when I talk to them in Spanish. I practice my Spanish, and they practice their English! it is so funny.. how fun! I love the members of my ward..  all 50 of them.. small, but hey they are wonderful! I get to help LEAD PRIMARY NEXT WEEK!! what! sooo cool, I told the primary president how my lovely beautiful mother was primary chorister, and she was like COME TO PRIMARY PLEASE!! so boom, making you proud mom ;)

 Just know I love my mission, and I love being able to be out here to serve! Texas is wonderful, and the mission is a humbling experience for sure.
Sometimes I feel like I am in Mexico, no lie..  there are dogs everywhere. sketchy.
 I am grateful for what I have, and for all that I have been blessed with. I am grateful for all of you, and the impact you have made in my life!
have an awesome week!!
Serve someone this week! 
 Everyday, list 3 things you are grateful for!
 I do this everyday.. and I know like 2 days in a row it was PEANUT BUTTER. haha I am a dork!
love your favorite missionary girl :)

Howdy ya'll  hahaha just joking,
I haven't heard anyone say that since I have been here.. you may think I am joking, but I am not...
okay lets go! where to begin..
Oh here is a good start.
                                                               I AM IN  TEXAS

                                             FIRST DAY AT THE MISSION HOME

It's so hot down here it is crazy. You walk outside and are already sweating... dang..
Happy Birthday Dad!! and Malia!! and early birthday shout out to Sofie :)
Hooray for birthdays!!

MY COMPANION is amazing! plus she is an AGGIE so how wonderful right!
Her name is Hermana Taylor and she is from St George Utah!
She is so patient and kind, and just  awesome! I am like a foot taller than her.

                                   Who am I kidding? I'm taller than everyone. HAHAHA

  I am serving in an area called MANVEL WEST.. (yes mom it is a safe area!)  I am in a Spanish branch.. so don't ask me what I learned on Sunday, because I have no idea what was even said.. haha OH WAIT THIS IS FUNNY.. so we had fast and testimony meeting on Sunday, but.. get this, Latinos talk like its there job.. only 4 PEOPLE bore their testimonies in 50 minutes... hahahahah because they talk so darn much.. funny right?! yeah its funny.
 I should have been called to SPANGLISH SPEAKING.. because that's basically what is going down!
We honestly teach people in English, then in Spanish, then in English! it goes back and forth! plus a lot of people want to practice their English so they only speak in English to us.. so really I am speaking English, but I am learning Spanish too.. don't ask me how my Spanish is.. because its pretty bad.
The members of the ward are so sweet.. all 50 of them.. CRAZY!  THAT'S SO SMALL RIGHT.. and you would think you could learn all their names.. Oh heavens no. They have the hardest names to pronounce too.. but they are awesome and I love them!

                                                         First Sunday at church

Lets talk about the food. MEXICAN FOOD  People love to feed us. They feed us the hottest food so I eat it super fast so that it doesn't linger and make my mouth hot, but then when I finish my plate,  BOOM.. MORE HOT SPICY FOOD.. dang that's rough..

                                                            I LOVE MY MISSION

I love my companion and I love Ice Cream too!
It is so funny to be a missionary sometimes.
 Get this story.. this is kind of bad.. but there is a less active who we visit all the time and his name is JESUS.. cool name ;) and he calls us his daughters, he is 82.. and he normally feeds us and talks to us for two hours.. so yesterday we went over to visit him, and he brings us  this raw meat of some sort.. don't ask me what it was  but  Hermana Taylor and I were like we are gonna get sick..  so then randomly Jesus goes inside, and we put  the meat  into a plastic baggy and put it into our purses...CONFESSION. oops, but that was funny.. then he also sent us home with more of the raw meat...   He's so sweet!!

Oh yes, The title of the email.. I have fire ant bites all over my legs.. lets just say my legs look like I have chicken pox. THE BUGS DOWN HERE ARE CRAZY!  Then there is roadkill everywhere.. armadillos and possum.. cool right?! yeah cool!!

Feel free to write me love letters, and send anything and everything you want to your FAVORITE MISSIONARY.. me.. ;)

(This is where Kaylee gives you her address and this is where momma bear takes it out for her safety.)             I would be happy to give it to you when you call me.... 884- you know the rest.. or do you???) You can also use the mission home address but she won't get it for a while. (Check a previous post for that) 

My biggest temptation right now is football... the football is crazy down here.. so I have to focus!! but hey, I love football!! and I love you all!!

                                   P.S. dogs chase us when we ride bikes.. SOOO SCARY
                                          but not this cute little one....not yet anyway!

Hello beautiful people!! :)

Wow, I cant believe I will be in Texas next Tuesday!! I will leave the CCM next Tuesday around 5:30 a.m then go to the lovely airport and fly out around 10:00 then be in good old humid Texas by 1 ish..!! crazy! So getting your flight plans is like getting your GOLDEN TICKET :) you will see the joy of getting my flight plan in the picture below.. :)

funniest thing that happened this week... oh I tripped.. hahahah that was really funny. like over my own two feet.. whoops

most spiritual things.... wait let me just start off by saying how excited I am for conference this weekend!  So excited! it is amazing that we have a living prophet here on this earth that we get to listen too!! amazing. I am so excited! 

We were able to go to the Mexico city temple today!! which was amazing! but we just went to the visitors center, because the temple is closed because it is under construction.We were given a tour and it was the most amazing thing ever! the blessings that come from the temple are amazing. It is cool to think whenever I miss my family, that it is kind of silly, because I get to be with them for forever and ever and ever....  How cool is that! for all eternity! but I still miss my family so don't get me wrong. I get to see them after death and be with them for eternity. its a beautiful and comforting thought :) 

Also my love for Joseph Smith has be quite amplified as well! We watch a movie Sunday night about his life, and how he restored this church and it was amazing. The spirit was like a big hug and comfort of this truth and it is crazy.. haha.. so cool!! 

I love you! 

A package from home.
and Breton Day ;) Thanks for my letter! I love you B


Today has been awesome! I had chocolate milk for breakfast. and then went to the temple.. then WHAT.. lasagna for lunch... BEST DAY!! and I get to hear from home!! 

I love you all,
