None of the pictures of Mom and I turned out that well. Between the lighting and the wind blowing our hair into our faces it made it kind of difficult, but you get the idea and you can just imagine that these are the best pictures of us you've ever seen :)
Mom is not sticking her tongue out at Melanie. She was just trying to get some hair out of her mouth. It's so awkward when you're eating your hair.
We were trying to take a picture of the three of us using the tried and mostly true method of having the person with the longest arms hold it out and try to get everyone in the picture...we weren't doing very well and a gentleman offered to take our picture.
We stayed until the sun started to set. it was beautiful! I took several pictures, but I think this one is my favorite.

And this picture is another one of those shots all missionaries have to take...the traditional picture with the MTC world map, pointing to where you're going to serve. I promise there's some un-written rule that all missionaries have to take a picture with the map. I took one, I know my brothers David and Stephen took one too.
This is Sarah and her MTC district. All the sisters are going to Temple Square and all the elders to Hawaii. They're so cute.
I'll be sure to keep you updated on Sarah's activities, but if you want more details visit the mission blog Elisabeth and I are managing for her. sisterdurtschi.blogspot.com

Me trying to find Emma's car
We probably had a good 4"-6" and most of the schools were delayed or closed. My office was closed. I was told to use my digression about coming in. My roommate Mel told me to say home. She didn't get the option to stay home (although I think she got to go in late) and she said there were 6 or so accidents on George Washington Parkway. Emma and I wisely stayed home most of the day. We had plenty to do since we had just moved in the Friday before. Unpacking and other fun activities. We ventured out about 4pm (after it had stopped snowing and the most of the roads had been cleared). We ran to the mall so Emma could use the fax and so we could order Internet. And you want to know the best part of the whole thing? It was about 60 degrees less then a week later....What's up with that?!
Reed came a long with us
We took some pictures before we head inside. We look great :)
Melanie found a nice little naval lieutenant (at least I think he was a Lieutenant) to dance with. And yes...or course I took some pictures. She did mention that she wanted a picture with a navy boy sometime during the night...
And of course Mel took some pictures of the Stadium
Really good times, despite the kind of lousy music.
