Mission Halftime

Hayden returned home from his mission on October 23rd for surgery to remove a cyst on his tailbone, which he had the following week. It was so much fun for our family to have Hayden home for six weeks and for him to see our new home and meet our new friends in Tooele. I loved being able to see Hay but I also loved having him return to his mission, where he belongs right now.

Here are some photos from Hay's Mission Halftime.

One of the first things Hayden did after his release - playing a video game with his brother.

Hayden and Alessandro - the baby he took care of before his mission has grown a lot in the past year.

I am going to miss Elder Ellis, but I am looking forward to getting his weekly emails again.

One more year to go.......
