Christmas Celebrations!

Thursday, January 03, 2013

We celebrated Christmas for four days. On Saturday the 22nd we had a Bongolo station Christmas Carol at Drs Zach and Jen' home. All the Americans and Africans living on the station were invited.



Sunday the 23rd Nancy, Deb, an African couple Felix and Adele and I went to the Nzoundou Chapel and had a Christmas service. Everyone enjoyed singing lots of Christmas carols.

We Americans had a Progressive Dinner on Christmas Eve. It started at my neighbor's home where she and I provided appetizers. We went to a total of six homes that night.





On Christmas we Americans had dinner at Barry and Terry's home. Everyone brought part of the dinner. We were 18 people and most of us stayed for many hours. It was a very nice day.



Sometime before Christmas I also celebrated by making my annual FUDGE!



Today's Positives:
1. My BLOGS have POSTED!!!!!!!! Yippee!!
2. I photocopied my course that I'm teaching the Nursing students beginning on Monday. They will each get a copy.
3. My friend Nancy is here another month. She has been a big help to me in the house and at the hospital.
4. Nancy and I are invited out to dinner tonight so no cooking!

More blogs another day...to catch you up on happenings in Africa. I have NO IDEA why my MANY BLOGS have not posted until this afternoon!!!!!!! They just disappeared into cyberland. I am so happy that I can blog again.
