Random bits

The church Christmas play and different holidays deserve their own separate posts. Other than those events, what should I write about now?

Asya got to go to "the real theatre" with her friend during the holiday break. Photos from that coming soon.... 

Our dear friends from Canada moved away. We're grieving that, and nothing replaces them.
Our last time all together before they left
They left us their very sweet little rabbit, and we're enjoying her so much. We have tons of photos of her already; here are just a few.

We started back to school at home and at art school. Music school starts again tomorrow (although both girls had extra music practices and such during their break).

Jaan went on a long trip by himself. This is the first time we've just sent him off like this: 18 hours on a train! He's spent a few days in Kharkov with the ministry he went to summer camp with, and he'll be home from that tomorrow. Pray for his long trip back.

Merry Christmas again

If you look up pictures of Christmas Eve in Ukraine, you'll probably see lots of tables covered with food: twelve different dishes special for Christmas and the usual Ukrainian volume of food. Our Hunsucker-Ukrainian-American table made me laugh last night. Sunday night tradition in our family is popcorn for dinner, and to that we added kutia, plus the cookies we were making for neighbours were out. It was quite a strange, international mix.

Today we've cooked and baked a lot. We're having a nice dinner soon, and then we've already heard that some neighbours are waiting for us to come carolling....

He ran out into the snow, then wrapped himself in our tablecloth.
