Holiday plans . . .

Hey all,

We now have a general idea of what we will be doing for our holidays here in Europe.

School is out at noon tomorrow until the 7th of January when we resume. Betka, Tobi, and I will leave for a Czech Christmas on December 22, then return to Vienna to get my mother from the airport on the 26th. Betka's parents will be driving their new car to Vienna to get us and take us "home for the holidays" . . . this means that we will celebrate on the 24th like true Europeans!:)
That also means church in Valtice on the 25th.

When my mom gets here on the 26th we will most likely stay in Wien for the New Year. We will have a big New Year's party at our place. Currently we have almost 10 people that have said they will be there. It will be awesome as you can see the entire city from our 7th story apartment (See images below, views from our living room)



The my mom goes back to the US on the 3rd and we have a couple more days left until school resumes.

That about sums up our plans for the holidays . . . Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, and a really blessed holiday season to all of you wonderful brothers and sisters in Christ out there. Be blessed!:)

Brian, Betka, and Tobi

For all of you who wonder why the view of Vienna is so great for New Year's Eve .............. the European tradition is to have fireworks to usher in the new year.

I am looking forward to the display of wonderful colors in Vienna. Hope I can stay awake long enough!!!
