Christmas 2007 in the MTC

Brent entered the MTC a week before Christmas, so he was able to celebrate it twice in 2007. Our family celebrated Christmas before Brent left, and then he had the opportunity to focus more on the "True Meaning of Christmas" while in the MTC. The combination of homesickness and the first holiday away from home made it a little tough, but he did enjoy the opportunity to listen to a few talks from General Authorities on Christmas and focus more on the birth of the Savior.
Of course Mom made sure her baby boy had his share of presents on Christmas day, even though in this first picture he seemed a little down when his comp received a stack of presents from home and his "side of the tree" was still empty...
As you can see things evened out...

Brent's words about this pic, "Me and my tough Christmas look...yeah I wore it to see Elder L. Tom Perry. Sweet huh!"
