Happy New Year 2012!
We planned a quiet new year celebration. After seeing a movie Ralph wanted to watch a basketball game and I was reading a good book. It was going to be an early evening. That is until the clock struck midnight and then the noise was deafening! The dark winter sky was lit up with bright colorful explosions. The Romanians celebrate with fireworks that rival or even surpass our 4th of July shows. As Ralph and I watched through our living room window we noticed up and down the street curtains were thrown back and others were enjoying the fireworks too. The bright lights surrounded our buildings and we could hear lots of shouting of "La Multi Ani!" (Happy New Year). It was a great way to ring in 2012.
We want to thank you for your support this past year and we look forward to the wonderful things God will do in 2012.
