After slow, icy roads we made it to Peoria IL where Tearsa, Ben and kids are living. We had hoped to spend Christmas with them, but the hurry-and-get-to-the-mission call from President Scott moved things up a bit, but Tearsa gave us a special early Christmas Eve with their family. She made a wonderful dinner and then we watched the kids open up presents which were supposedly from Grandpa and GG. We just enjoyed spending time with their family and loving the kids. We stayed there for 2 days and then said goodbye and off to Canada.
