End of December Pics

 Another visit at the Luschin Home. Elder Tew, Sister Luschin, and Granddaughters Sara & Rosie. Sara was lighting all the candles on the tree for us.  It was a beautiful sight to see especially when she put a couple of sparklers on and lit them also. A first for us.
 This is what we saw one morning when we looked out the living room window. Breath taking. One of those sun rise alerts!!

 On P-day after Christmas, Bro. Schatz took us Graz Missionaries on a hike. It was a glorious day!! Then we went to a chinese buffet resturant.  Bro. Schatz serves in our Bishopric and is such a great servant of the Lord.  He served as Branch President in Bruck for 10 years recently and is so good to us.
 Elder Ward announced to us at District Meeting that he was leaving for home in North Carolina  because of health reasons.  He has really struggled these past weeks that he has been here.  He is a great Elder and will return as soon as he can. We will miss him and keep him in our prayers.
 PIGS, PIGS, PIGS!!  Gearing up for the NEW YEAR.  Stands like these are everywhere selling pink pigs of every kind.  They are supposed to bring you good luck for the year. Also mushrooms, 4 leaf clovers, and chimney sweeps.  Interesting. So of course we had to buy some.  Elder Tew is paying for them right now!!
These are the ones we chose for us.  Aren't they cute!  Matching PIGS  looking at who knows what?

Oh my goodness - how do all their houses not catch fire with candles on the drooping branches AND sparklers?!?!?! Crazy. I bet Rick was excited for a Chinese buffet. :) Beautiful sunrise and cute pigs!

I'm with Jess on the candles/sparklers/live tree thing. That was the first thing I thought, "AAAAH! RUN!!" But they must know how to do it right. After all, that house is a couple/few centuries old, right?

And ps, the pigs? Sha, weird. I think you guys should play Pig Mania with those. Leaning jowler might be hard to achieve. My friend brought me a ceramic pig from the Czech Republic when she served there. It's little -- about the size of the end of my thumb -- and has a 4-leaf clover painted on its rump! Apparently, it was customary to give a little something to guests who visited your home. Can't remember the Czech word for it. But very often it was a little pig.
