We were gone for the holidays, spending Christmas in New Zealand with my mothers family and then New Years with my fathers family! It was wonderful seeing family and friends and taking 3 of our children (Ashley, Benjamin and Chelsea) to the land of my birth. They loved it and enjoyed meeting family. Ashley was amazed at how many family we have there! One nice thing is that they are just leaving spring with summer just around the corner, which was great. On our way home we spent a few days with friends (President & Sister Ardern) in Fiji, nice and hot there! Our friends, we'll he's the Mission President of the Fiji Suva Mission. Visiting with them brought back a lot of feelings and thoughts of our mission that we served with you! We are now home, so sorry for any of you who have written over the past little while! We hope you had a wonderful holiday time and HAPPY NEW YEAR to you all!!
Sorella Julie Pacini (Presidente, too)
