We got to talk to Elliot today. For those unfamiliar with Mormon missions, the rules he has agreed to live by for the two years he will be in Oklahoma permit him only four phone calls home -- Christmas and Mother's Day. Of course, we have weekly emails, letters, pictures, and packages, but no visits at all and only four phone calls. So today's phone call was a very special occasion for the family. Lori, Alyssa, and I got on the speaker phone at home, while Keith and Kim joined in via Skype on the computer. We talked for a long time and loved it, except the part when we had to hang up. We thought it would be fun to share a little bit of Elliot on the blog, so we recorded a very brief message. I hope the link works. If not, leave me a comment and I can email the file to you you. Merry Christmas!
