only 2 more weeks left in the mtc!

patty with her missionary tag on!
("is butter a carb? LOL!")

("The view outside my window! Do you miss Utah?? I think NOT!")
[Patty mentions that due to the extreme dryness of Utah, she experiences severe nosebleeds! She hates the cold!]

In front of the Provo, Utah LDS Temple
("Temple walk! Each Sunday after lunch we get to walk to the Provo Temple. . . ALL UP HILL!")

("The Trio! Me and my companions: Sister Shaha & Sister Black")

("The District: Elder Laufenberg, me, Sister Black, Elder Thorup, Sister Shaha, Sister Randall, Sister Smith, Elder Smith")

"So here at the MTC we are not allowed to sing unless it's a hymn. So naturally nobody sings EXCEPT in the shower! Oh my gosh patty it's so funny! The sisters all sing and try to have a competition on who has the best voice! You would just die laughing! I was washing my hair and thought, 'Maybe I should sing 'Called to Serve' in my ugly tone deaf voice! Maybe tomorrows shower time will be a little adventurous!"
