Mom and I got to see a live performance of Tanecs last night. It's a famous Macedonian folk group. It was a great concert!! It has been a really special and encouraging Christmas for us. If you want to watch a clip of Tanecs just copy and paste this link into your web browser:

Our 5th Anniversary!

We are celebrating five years of wonderful marriage today! Eric is in the kitchen cooking up a great Italian meal for us and I made his favorite kind (Chocolate w/Reeses) of cookies for dessert:)

Tomorrow around 2:00 is going to be very interesting...Eric has paid to have our anniversary announcement put on the local Roma BTR television channel. We submitted pictures that will be shown and our friends dedicated songs to us. We will not be able to understand the songs because they are in the local Romani dialect, but I feel very loved and appreciated by my husband for making this effort!

Caramel Apple Night

I had the great privilege of attending "Caramel Apple Night". This is a yearly event where American ladies gather to fellowship and make caramel apples. The caramels are mailed here from America. There were about 30 of us ladies this year. It was a great night of meeting new Americans that live in my same city! We all went around and told a little bit about our family and job. Hope you enjoy the pictures. One friend decided to be a little different and make a caramel pear. Isn't it huge?!

We had a great time today for Eric's birthday! First, after church, we went to eat Chinese (see pictures), and tonight we had our landlords over to eat Chicken Parmesan and M&M cookies.
