Christmas dinner was with the Elders, Liz, and Molessia.  But earlier, as the rolls raised, the Elders took us to"Abbots Cliff".  There was a view of Harrington Sound that was spectacular.  We also took time to stop at the smallest gas station we've ever seen(open 365 days/year).  I've been wanting a picture of it for a while and with traffic at a minimum it was a perfect day. 

CHRISTMAS IN BERMUDA

Christmas day came early, we headed out at 8:00 am  with the Elders for breakfast with the Branch President and his family.  We had so much fun, they shared with us a wonderful breakfast and  family traditions, making us feel very at home.  We then headed out to pick folks up for Church, on our way one of our sisters called for a ride (the buses were on holiday schedule for Christmas) so we took a diversion out to pick her up.  We weren't that late but only enjoyed 15 minutes of meeting as it only lasted 40 minutes max.  But the fun of the company and the energy of a packed house for Church made it all worth it.  Everyone stayed, visiting and making Merry Christmas Wishes to all.

"Secret Santa"


Santa (Mac James) stopped by the other day on his way to deliver a few Christmas gifts to two very special ladies!  He is such a happy, jovial guy.  If we could all be as giving as Santa.

I've another favorite for Bermuda.  These cookies are fabulous!  They only come in for the Christmas season.  When I thought about taking a picture of them, POOF, they were gone.  Just like magic or maybe Bart being around.  No matter they were delicious ; )

Bermuda Branch Christmas Dinner

Elder Webster & Jay

Great view of Branch members enjoying themselves!

Santa sure looks like Elder Kingsley, doesn't he?

Santa and Mary (Jasmine C)



The Christmas Dinner was fun and well attended.  They say give them food and they will come! Must be true.  We had a short program which included the nativity and several musical numbers.  As things were coming to a close, Elder Webster dashed off to the airport to pick up the Manhattan Temple President and his wife.  They came to visit the Branch on Sunday.  Their timing could not have been more perfect; as about 1/2 of the active members are off to the NYC to attend the Temple.  President Garff was able to put them at ease and get them ever more excited for their adventure.

Sandy and RL came to visit and we had a blast!  It really didn't matter what we did, we just enjoyed their company.  Thanksgiving day we had dinner at the Fairmont South Hampton.  The Christmas decor put us in the mood for the Holidays.  Most of all it was a relaxing meal and visit.  How blessed we are to have family.  Thanks for coming Sandi and RL.
We thank David and Emily for gathering our family together at their home, that is no small thing.  We miss you all.  We've been counting our many blessings, thank you to all that remember us and bless us with your love.   It does not go unnoticed.

Daquan, Roxane, and Shequilla's BAPTISM

Our most recent has been a beautiful baptism.  Our young friend Shaq prepared himself to baptize his mother and little sister, and his friend baptized their close friend Daquan on the same morning.  It is a first for the branch to have a young priesthood holder baptize his own family.  Many of the members came out to support them on this journey.  Father in Heaven blessed us with a morning with out rain, it was perfect!


Sandy and RL were here and able to join us for our baptisms.  It was great to have them there.

CHRISTMAS WORKDAY


Beth, me, Ann, Jay
Me and Ja
We were as busy as BEES getting ready for our Relief Society Workday.  It was worth every moment of stress and work.  


We all had so much fun.  I think these ladies could have fun doing anything, they just love to be together, especially if there is good food.

Elder Websters Haircut

Bart got tired of paying $'s for his haircut and enlisted Elder Tremble to do a trim.........tremble he did!  I watched as he had his hair cut several times, then insisted that he go to the "Barber"!  While there the barber asked who had cut his hair, he said, "I've never seen anything like this in my life!"  Bart's explanation, "My wife cut it!".

OUR NEW LITTLE ONE ~ "But little children are alive in Christ, even from the foundation of the world." (Moroni 8:12)

Even though we love serving a mission, these are the days that we wish we could be home for just a week or two.  Isn't she precious!  She is just a doll and she has two big brothers who are going to take such good care of her.  Our littlest Webster girl weighed 6lb 10 oz, and is 20 1/2 inches long.  She doesn't know her first name yet, she is waiting for her Dad to arrive from China tomorrow.  She was born on my Grandma Lucy's birthday, maybe she was able to escort her as she joined her family here on earth.  We thank Father in Heaven for her safe arrival and her mothers health. We love them both.

Home Evening

Family Home Evening was great! Jasmine and David came for dinner and we had a surprise guest,  Arthur. He stopped by to say hello and stayed for dinner, I was quite honored in that he liked the meal I prepared.  Arthur owns a fish shop here that is very popular for it's sandwiches.  After dinner we spent some time helping David and Jasmine learn a bit about New Family Search.  As we walked them out to the car, Jasmine wanted a picture of the Cruise ships.  It's a bit blurry, but still enchanting.  What a nice night, we love David and Jasmine. 

Searching for Ron



Saturday we drove to St Georges to find Ron, a member who just moved to Bermuda.  As we headed home after our search we were surprised to see our friend Latricia.  Our attention was captured from across the street as a group was waving through a window of a small diner, it was five other members of our branch.  It was fun just bumping into each other, these are a few of our favorite people.  (If you look close you will see another Waldo = > )

"FORGET ME NOT"



The broadcast was wonderful for many reasons but the greatest is the spirit of joining together as sisters through out the world and being reminded of how the Lord loves each of his daughters and how priceless they are to Him.  We gathered together 23 strong, only expecting 10 sisters.  Our Relief Society President hosted us in her home where we watched via computer and a large television screen at 9:00 that evening.  Before the broadcast there was good food, great laughter and friend shipping.  David and Elder Webster hung around as long as they could before being ushered out of our girl's night. When the sisters sang in SLC, we sang in Bermuda!  Boy did we sing, it was amazing the power, the spirit, the love of our sisters as they sang, I thought we would blow the roof off.  We felt very connected to our sisters 'round the world that night.  We love you all!   The message of the "Forget Me Not" was a message of caring about ourselves, each other, and remembering He who loves us best,  gave His all.   Let us ENJOY THE JOURNEY!
