|Marshmallow Roasting Stand|
We stayed until dark and when the Christmas lights went on, all the children squealed with delight. It must have been a family night because it was very crowded. It really was amazing to see, and of course, I took pictures. I couldn't use my tripod because I lost the camera attachment thingy and I'm having a hard time finding another one. So, I used EK's shoulder and did the best I could. One, two, three, hold your breath, snap. I noticed a cute marshmallow stand. What a great idea! They provided long sticks, marshmallows, and a fire for roasting. There was also a roasted chestnut stand. All that was missing, was some snow.
We have been having fun making Christmas crafts for a local Children's Organization. Our landlady told us about it. They sell the crafts and the money goes to families who have children with cancer. We try to go every Wednesday night and EK is having fun visiting with all the ladies. He is usually the only man there and they are entertained with his attempt to communicate with them in Hrvatski. He also looks cute in his little work apron...

I found a hair salon for a haircut and color. The stylist was sweet and very good with the color. Another girl cut my hair and was very meticulous. I'm not used to having two people do my hair, but they did a great job. I especially liked the shampoo experience. A leisurely head and neck massage, and all the while the lower back of the chair which had a massager, gently massaged my back. Ahhh, it was a little bit of heaven...maybe I can go back weekly, just to get a shampoo...
It's time to think about Christmas baking. I can find almost everything I need. One thing that is impossible to find here are pie tins. Reason being is they don't make round pies. They are rectangular with a thick crust. But thanks to my friends Cathy & Mary, I have peppermint extract and candies for some treats.

The word of the week is: sišanje (shee-shawn-yea), which means haircut. I just got one, and Grandpa is looking a little shaggy. He has an appointment this week.
