Sister Fanning made a maraschino cherry salad this morning for the senior missionary dinner.
Tiffany came over about noon to watch Inside Out. We had a good time, and the movie was really cute. We gave Tiffany her Christmas present – the book Infinite Atonement by Tad Callister. We feel that she can use all the help she can get to strengthen her testimony.
After she left, we went to the base to deliver a couple of loaves of bread to a couple of sailors who work at the hospital. They have not been active at all lately. We were able to deliver to Darius but William had already left work. We got a new address for Darius and his wife. We also got hugs. We will go back tomorrow to deliver to William.
We left for Fresno about 4:00. We stopped at the LDS bookstore. We got the DVD of Special Witnesses of Christ that they ordered for us. We also picked up some bookmarks for the missionaries for Christmas and a gift for Elder and Sister Brown.
We went to Costco for gasoline. We also went shopping for steak, bread, and cinnamon. We also got some Nutella.
We got to the Christmas party for the senior missionaries early. A couple of other couples were also early. The party was at the home of the daughter of one of the senior missionary couples. We played a game to start with about identifying Christmas carols from pictures. We had some really good food for the dinner. We had ham, funeral potatoes, corn and beans, rolls, and pot luck salads. We also had pot luck desserts. We were all stuffed. We had a couple of ladies come to sing some songs for the program. We played Christmas bingo after the program. We both one a game and got goodies for a prize.
We got home about 10:00.
