   So in last weeks email we told Kyle that we sent a package to his previous apartment. This week we asked him if he was able to get it. We also asked Kyle for his new address, which he failed to give us. Ug. So I updated the blog and put the mission home address on it for now. We also told him that this past Sunday was Stake Conference and told him about two great talks that were given. Tracie also told Kyle that she was done with all the Christmas shopping and now can focus on writing the annual Christmas letter. Tracie also asked if he was able to see any movies because she was talking with her dad and he mentioned that he was able to go to them. Below is Kyle's letter.

   Our last email to Kyle we talked about how its already December and that he has surpassed his 1 year mark on his mission. We asked him how his Thanksgiving was? Was he fed by a Ward member and was it as good as grandma's? We told him how grandpa and grandma invited the missionaries in their Ward to celebrate Thanksgiving with all of us. Tracie told Kyle how she took pictures and forwarded them to their parents and let them know they were taken care of. We asked Kyle if he received the package we sent. We asked for his new address. We told him that his sister Lexi finally bought some fabric and made herself some really soft pajama pants. (She's very proud of them) Told him that Kinlee was going up to the Snowflake Temple in the coming week. And finally, we let Kyle know that we broke down and bought a pre-lit christmas tree so we won't have to string a gazillion lights anymore. Oh, by the way, YSA stands for Young Single Adult Ward.

                              Here's a map showing where Kent, WA is located.
