Of Snow and Farewells
December finally arrived and with it the chance for Emma to have her farewell and make final preparations for leaving on her 18 month mission to Villahermosa Mexico. It has been a long 4 months of waiting. The day of Emma's farewell was December 8th. The weekend arrived, along with grandparents and aunts and uncles. Unfortunately so did a freak snow storm. On December 7th, sunny St. George received 8 inches of snow. This was more than our poor little city could handle. It was announced that night, at the ward Christmas party, that church would be cancelled the next day because of the weather. Emma took the news in stride and we simply held a small get together for those who could make it.
