We are having a great time in Tartu (Estonia). Tiiu and Guido have been great hosts. Here are some photos to give you an idea of what Estonian Christmas is like...

Guido decorating the tree last night
Silver and Steven playing Ping Pong earlier in the dayTiiu making Kringel
Kringel is a delicious braided bread with apples, raisins, oranges and spices.
A tasty dessert. I am looking forward to eating a big piece tomorrow with my coffee!
Kringel, fresh out of the oven!Kadi and Tiiu cooking while the men...
watch TV (actually the scene from Christmas Vacation when Chevy Chase imagines a swimming pool in his backyard with a beautiful woman taking off her bikini ....hmmm)
Pork with fruit!
Diane watched Tiiu make this last night.
Steven is hoping she can replicate the recipe!
"Fish under a Blanket" salad and jellied meat in the foreground
The salad had fish, carrots, beets, mayonnaise, cheese
and a bunch of other stuff I didn't see her put in it.
Pork with fruit and blood sausage

To all of our friends and family around the world,
we wish you a very Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas Diane and Steven!
It's officially Christmas here as of 2 minutes ago. We are enjoying hearing about your travels to Estonia. (We didn't really know where it was until we looked it up)! WOW, how cool. It looks beautiful! Thanks for the updates and pictures.
Love,
Aunt Marlene and family
