Gilmore Girls in Hungarian

Drum roll please -- We went to this little place to have pizza after the Elders bought their whips. To my delight -- Gilmore Girls was on the TV. It was hilarious because I had seen it so many times I could translate what they were saying. The Elders thought it was hysterical. Of course they aren't suppose to watch TV, but they watched a little to see if I really knew what it was about. They have no idea how many episodes of Gilmore Girls I've watched. And the other good news - it must have been a Gilmore Girls Marathon because as soon as one show was over another one came on. So fun to see Gilmore Girls in Hungarian.

Me, Jeanie and Wendy

We didn't want to be outdone so we got our pictures taken with the whips as well. Of course we didn't try them out first. We're smarter than that. If you don't know what you're doing, it can be rather painful. As you can see --- it was a cold day.

Hortabagy Whips

There's a man in Hortabagy who sells whips. The missionaries are his best customers. It's about a 2 hour drive from Buda. We went there today so Elder Smith, Wanlass, Johnson and Jackson could buy whips. They all already have one but they all bought more. They cost about $100. The guy is super nice and gives them a great deal. It's pretty fun to watch. They take them out in an open space and try them out before they buy them. I think it's pretty hard to get them to make the cracking sound, but all the missionaries were able to do it. Of course the guy was pretty excited because he sold several whips to them.

Elder Johnson

These young men have very different taste than me. Elder Johnson was looking at knives while I was looking at Christmas ornaments and nativities. But it sure was fun shopping with them. I feel sorry for the people who are in the booths. It is freezing cold outside and they are there all day.

Elder Jackson aka " Attila the Hun"

I went shopping this morning with Elder Jackson and Elder Johnson at the Christmas shops. Elder Jackson saw this Attila the Hun hat and had to try it on. It was $300 so of course he didn't buy it. But it was fun getting his picture.

December Bulletin Board

This is the December Bulletin Board. We used Megan's tree for about 6 months so it was time for a change. I like how it turned out. There were some things in the file so it made it easier for us to make it.

Hungarian Home

I tried to get a picture of a typical Hungarian Home. The front of the house is really nice. But it gradually gets more and more run down. In the rear of the home is almost like a barn. Usually that's where the animals live. I hope you can see it. This is one of the best examples I've seen. I love them.
