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.

A celebratory mixture indeed--and Christ has come for all nations! I did find the Ukrainian Christmas video very interesting. Thank you for sharing with us. We love you.

So cute! I know the neighbors enjoyed your caroling, too! I thought it was especially nice that they wanted you to carol for someone else and drove you there so you could do it!! You all bless people in so many ways! Including us!! Thank you for the LOVELY Christmas present! (I don't say it "out loud" and spoil the surprise for the Robertson family! (: ) Theirs and Abby's will go in the mail today. Anna was very pleased with hers and we are certainly enjoying ours! Lovely Christmas!! Love to each of you!!
