We're officially Elder and Sister Walton

Here we are - Elder and Sister Walton. Since we are visiting family for a little less than a month before we enter the Mission Training Center (MTC), our tags were mailed to our first stop - Colorado. Megan took a picture of us! It was pretty exciting to put our missionary tags on!

The new "mission trailer" is done!

Bryce had a brilliant idea to cover our utility trailer with hinged plywood to hold the things we're taking to Nauvoo. This way they'll be secure when we stop over night. 

Our ward missionaries used their muscles to help Bryce put it together. 

He was grateful for the help! Thanks Elders!

Mission Farewell

February 22, 2015 was a big day! It was our 13th Wedding Anniversary (yeah!) and our Mission Farewell. 
Both Bryce and I spoke in church.

Some of our family came to wish us well. Between us, we have 10 kids and will have 17 grandkids by the end of March.  We're very happy to have Skype and Facetime! My cousin Evalee and her husband Andrew with Maggie and Xavier also came to say goodbye and our neighbors Mike, Monique with Alexander and Kimberly. (sorry no picture)

Zoie, Nixen and Cassidy(Currie)

                                It was great having David, Zoie, and Nixen there.                                        

Andrew surprised us by dropping by. 

Extra special was to see Janis and Neal. Janis and I have been friends for 55 years!

Barry and Shannon and Val dropped by to see us off.

We enjoyed seeing David and Sharon.

It was fun to see June, Mom, Sandy and Greg.

We had fun visiting Jane and Pres. Bennett...

and Elizabeth and Jeff. 

On March 8th, we'll be set apart as missionaries of 

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. March 10th we leave. Wow!

 We are getting very excited!
