Erin receives her mission call to the Washington Federal Way Mission!! She is scheduled to report at the Provo Missionary Training Center on November 19th -- just over 5 weeks away! The call was such a surprise, because just six months ago, Jared returned from the same mission.

Our family moved from our heart-land, McKinney, Texas to Morgan, Utah. Erin and Aubri left the day after we arrived to go to Rexburg, Idaho to visit Jared and Emily there for a few days.

Erin got her wisdom teeth removed and reacted hilariously to the anesthesia. (I'll post the videos separately). After a few days of recovery, we had a couple of shopping days left before she was to report -- we worked hard and fast and got it done!

The Banner family (those in Utah) gathered for an early Thanksgiving dinner. At the last minute, Jared and Emily were able to come down and join us. It was so fun!

Erin is set apart as a full-time missionary by President Skinner of the Morgan, Utah Stake. It was such a sweet experience. Just outside of the Stake President's office, there is a wall of all of the missionaries serving from the Morgan Stake. There is over 100! Erin has the privilege of sharing the wall with her Grandma Banner -- serving a mission in Birmingham England.
