Dutch "Oliebollen" in Uganda.....

 Saterday we have been busy with preparations. We baked Dutch Oliebollen! We had visitors, who did most of the backing. And they did a great job, we also backed them with, Apple, Pineaple and Bananas.
 At 10.30 pm we woke the bigger children and we had together  a time of reading the Bible and praying, thanking God for all He had done for us during 2011. And after that we had snacks and soda's, And the children loved the Oliebollen and the little meat balls. It was a cozy time, waiting together till it was 12! 
 After we wished each other a happy new year, we ran around with sparkles and we watched the firework, which was lightened on top of the Soroti rock. The children thought it was very beautiful.
 Today, my shift started at 7 am. we had to do the laundry, cook and feed 11 baby's on their times, keep an eye on the toddlers and we were only with 4 staff. It was very busy. But the staff who was suppose to work in the afternoon, came to help with the cooking. We had a great meal, outside in the garden, nice food and nice company and ofcourse a soda!!
The children enjoyed the meal as well and after a bit of playing, we saw a movie together and early to bed!
We had nice days together, but I am happy that the 'normal' days are coming again. Tuesday the whole staff is present again and I am looking forward to it! I thank God we did not have serious sickness, only some malaria. But I am very tired and I am also going to bed early!!
O, before I forget, I wish everybody a blessed and fruitfull 2012, thank you for taking your time to read our blog and on this way, be part of our life! May God bless you!
