SANTA CLAUSE is coming to town

okay I seriously feel like I was just on email like 2 minutes ago. 

I don't even know what happened this week.
we visited with one of our moms this week. We went to the park with her little one I was a little shocked to see her walk. She was definitely a stroller baby until this week. Who knew babies could walk. All I knew is that they sat in strollers while we walked around the city with thier moms.
anyways (tangents)
So we were in this park and all of a sudden a little school class gets released for recess and a little boy comes running over to the gate and says "mám darček!" (I have a gift) so our mom yells, "we are coming over"
So we headed over and little nataška held our hands all the way over
and then there was a stampede of 4 year olds running to the fence to say hi to little nataška and get the opportunity to touch her face.

oh it was just so cute and they were all in the Christmas spirit giving leaves of all shapes and sizes.
then the little boy who invited us over to the gate in the first place turns to our cute mom and asks "can you open this gate? I want to go." "please open the gate" "Do you have the key to this gate" 
She told him he would have to wait for mommy and daddy and he was a little disappointed we couldn't help him escape from preschool. 

ALSO slovaks here are wild about Christmas. Our moms can't even meet this week because they are basically out of town all week except for Christmas. Joj how are we going to talk about Jesus on christmas if you are not here?
continuing (rants)
Then we met with one of our really cool friends who is studying IT. 
We taught him about the plan of salvation and he said he would read the pamphlet on his train home. ALSO he told us this week that he has been reading in the Book of Mormon and its really AWESOME because 
a. he doesn't like reading and 
b. He is getting into finals week.
but he told us that he has been reading the book of mormon whenever he gets a free minute and that he keeps it on his bedside table. 
Then the week becomes a blur. 
at one point we were on a train to Trencin to do our exchanges with the sisters, and oh boy are they cute. 
They made us spaghetti and waited until 9:30 to eat with us. SOOO NICE. 
THEN I went on exchanges with
and boy oh boy is she fun and full of energy. 
and since that was my first time serving in trencin, (just for a day) I got to really see how cute that little city is. ITS MAGICAL. but then aren't all the cities magical? 

Then we all joined together and did some caroling. 
We had a man do a full panorama video of us a little girl dancing next to us and people hopping off their bikes to listen.
CHRISTMAS!!! *insert buddy the elf here*
EEEK i just love it.
its perfect.
Okay well I hope you all have a wonderful miraculous week full of christmas spirit and happiness and joy.
S Laskou,
Sestra Ratcliffe

Okay okay get ready for a cute fest.
