Merry Christmas!!

Well, we've been in California for about 2 and a half weeks now. Our journey up here was long and even included a fun 5 hour delay on our flight but we arrived safe and sound and ready to enjoy some good Mexican food! I can't even express how great it was to be back with our friends and family.

Christmas is my most favorite time and this year was especially different because it was my first Christmas in California with Aaron's family. Even though I was away from my own family it was really fun to celebrate the day Ortega style.

We will be flying up to Canada on Friday to be with my family and to celebrate Christmas #2. And I just have to say how great my family is, they postponed December 25 and didn't even open their presents yet becasue they are waiting for us!! So we will have our very own second Christmas with all the normal traditions with them this weekend. We are so excited!

We will be returning back to Chile mid-January to work with the Discipleship Training School and until then we will be enjoying our time at home and visiting with friends and family.

Thanks everyone for your prayers as we travel and we hope this Christmas season has been a blessing to you!
