happy new years

For New years eve we went to dinner at a Hot pot place with Jack again. He taught us how to eat cor on the cob taiwan style (on your cop stick). Mine ended up in my lap the first time I tryed to do it. But it was a great dinner and we had a cute little boy stop us and talk to us. His english was really good. Other then all the taiwaneese people staring at us, we really enjoyed the dinner. After dinner we cruized around xiemin and I got a cool warm scarf, I was going to need one to keep warm because it was sooo cold. Xieman is definitely the "young" persons hang out. I love it. There are hardly any older people there. It is just a really Large fun place to go to just hang out or go shopping and get lots of really good food.
Michael and Jack with Dinner, Hot Pot!
This was a really cute bunny hat and the scarf I did buy!

You can see the scarf on the picture below! I didn't get the hat. Though, my head wished I had because it was SOOOO Freakin' Cold outside.

Getting around in the public transportation took a little bit longer (2 hours) then normal. As you can see in the picture below the MRT was packed with people (at least they aren't driving drunk unlike California). It was definitely a fun experience. I loved it!

Okay well, We are going to our Ward Temple night! I will have to comtinue this post later tonight! or in the morning!

Looks like you guys are having an amazing adventure! And what a great picture of the two of you! I'm sure it will be a great memory that you can look back on for decades to come.

I can't believe I had not been reading these! We have been wondering how you were doing... and all I had to do was read your blog to find out!

We love you and are so happy that you are doing well.
Michael, be good.
Michelle, be kind.
We miss you!
