Parties Galore

Today was a busy day! The morning started with Pancakes at the Sullivans. We don't always get to do this, but we try at least once a month to do pancakes with everyone. Pancakes were delicious, we all had a great time together!

After breakfast I came back to the house where Karen was getting ready for Miriams baby shower that afternoon. I hopped in the shower while I had the chance before Larry got to work on the bathroom. Once I was done Larry was working in bathroom getting the shower installed (he has been remolding a second bathroom for me)! It wont be long before its fully functional! Im going to try and paint the ceiling some time this week! Anyways, Karen finished decorating the cake and then at 1 Stefi and Jessie came over to start decorating and get ready for the shower.

A bit of cultural information here, pregnant women dont tell what they are having to people so it is still a surprise! They know, and a close select few know, but thats it! So Miriam had her baby before Christmas and we just had the baby shower for her!

The shower went well, there was a nice turn out and Miriam and Tabita had a good time. There was a lot of german today thats for sure! It was cool to interact though, I was able to understand more than I thought I would.

Immediately following the shower we had a birthday party to be at at 6 pm. So literally people walked out the door, we put our shoes on and walked out the door to the next party! It was nice to spend some time with the young adults from the church. We went to this guys house, which is just around the corner from us, and had supper with him and then just shot the breeze for a little bit.

Another cultural tid-bit, you throw your own birthday partys here. You are expected to have a cake and coffee on your birthday for people to come over, then you throw yourself a party! So that was what we went to tonight!

This particular guy is in a band and has a lot of guitars and what nots in his house, he pulled one down and showed me how to play an F I think... maybe that was an E. I dont remember. Anyways, then we passed around the guitar and everyone played a little bit, even the ones who couldn't play (ahemm me). Then he played some for us. That was pretty neat! I really enjoyed it.

Tomorrow is church in the morning and sport at 5! Thats all folks!

Have a great Sunday! Be good and do good!
