Happy Halloween!

Hello Everyone!

Happy Halloween! Even here in Norway, Halloween is a thing. It's becoming more popular as the years go by (so I'm told anyways. I haven't lived here long enough to quite say) but people still get dressed up and some go trick or treating! We delivered in our pant today and bought a Bad Limes soda and Lefse to celebrate Halloween. Lefse is like a potato tortilla with cinnamon butter on the inside. It's really delicious :D Elder Dawes picked himself up some smågodt (just small candies) for Halloween too. So we are having a good time celebrating with that. I know it's not a bucket full of goodies, but hey, Norwegian chocolate is better (and I've got some of that back home :D).

Last Monday, we flew up to Narvik for splits. It was good getting to spend some time up there, enjoying the Northern lights, with good company, in a cozy little city.

Let me attempt to paint this picture for you all. Feel free to just go look it up online. That will do it more justice. The Narvik Airport is no doubt, the smallest airport I've ever been to. Imagine your local gas station. That's the terminal. Everything is practically in the same room. Actually it is all in the same room. IT'S SO COOL! haha Now, because it's just this local airport, everyone shows up early because you just live a couple minutes away. And there's only like 10 people on the average flight. So we show up early, because I'd hate to miss the last flight of the night leaving Narvik and try explaining that one. But we get there. And everyone shows up early too. Our flight is supposed to leave at like 8PM. But everyone is there at about 7:30. So we all board and we are in the air a half hour in advance! We landed in Bodø at about 8:10, 10 minutes after we were supposed to have taken off.

One great perk about flying with Widerøe, aside from their planes being prop planes, is that you get free chocolate on the flights!!! It's the best. :D haha

Other notable things, yesterday, Elder Dawes gave his first talk. It was on Family History, and it went pretty good. I'm pretty sure positive he made some people cry. But that's alright :)

Yesterday we had daylight savings. The sun now goes down at 3:30PM. So that's weird. Mørketid is on its way!!! Bring it on!

Well I hope you all have a wonderful week! Take care and enjoy your Halloween!
