Buon Natale

Just wanted to wish everyone a Merry Christmas! Josh and I will be spending Christmas in Germany. I haven't been there yet and hopefully we will get a little bit of snowboarding in. To my family back home, know that you will be on my mind the whole time. Hopefully next year we will all be able to spend it together.

I think 2010 is going to bring a lot of things. God has blessed me so much this year. I have made amazing friends here in Italy. I am so very excited for the Nelsons to have their baby girl!! My sister-in-law is getting married in June. Not to mention I hope to come home a couple of times to see my family that I miss so much!! Hopefully we will have a few people come to visit us this next year.

I hope that everyone remembers to stop and thank God for all that we have this holiday season.
Merry Christmas from the Heisners

Giving Thanks, and gearing up for Christmas

Hello Everyone!! Just thought I would give you a little update on how the last week has gone! Thanksgiving feast was a great success. I think we had about 21 people. A BIG thanks to everyone who helped make it a wonderful night.  Here are some pictures..

In other news we have all our Christmas decorations up. I wish we could put some lights outside..but sadly we dont have anywhere to plug them in! The mountains have been covered up with fog for a few weeks, but I finally got a glimpse of them yesterday. Man are they pretty. Looked like there was a lot more snow, I'm still waiting for my snowboarding lesson.  

As I was leaving the Landers yesterday my car starting acting funny. After shutting off a few times on the busiest road in town I finally made it home. I asked our Landlord if they could call their friend who is an auto mechanic and he came over this morning to take a look at it. As it turns out I was very lucky that my car engine didn't catch on fire. Some wires were exposed and had been melting on the engine. I'm very thankful that we caught it in time, he is supposed to have it fixed by tonight.

Other than that everything is going well. I am signed up for the rotator to head home on the 21st of January while Josh is gone to Spain for a few weeks.  Start praying that everything goes as smooth as it did last time. Thats all for now! It's beginning to look like Christmas.  This is my favorite month!!! Hope everyone is enjoying it!!! Love and miss you all!!

P.S. Here is our wedding photo (taken by Jessica Hollis : ) ) I framed it myself and I love how it turned out.... just wanted to show it off : )
