Friday, we attended the annual PVCC Let There Be Light student art show. It was a freezing cold night but there is always plenty of free Hot Cider and Hot Chocolate to warm us midway around the perimeter of the outside of the campus building. We also rode a bus in the annual Downtown Business Association Gingerbread Express Holiday light trolley trip.
This year two refugees went with us. One refugee had only been here for 4 months and spoke very little English and the other has been in Charlottesville for a year now. There was little understanding of exactly what they were going to! My friend Cindy (who adopted a refugee family last year) likes to introduce them to local activities so they will gain a greater understanding of our culture.

The light display is always fun and interesting. Nestled in the woods, hanging in the trees were a series of lighted art creations. We had to rush through this year because of our pending trolley trip scheduled for 8 pm.
Mountain View St. and Monticello Rd. Santa came on board for the kids and everyone was happy and having fun until ---------------------------- the kids puked in the seat right in front of us. Ugh. Ugh. Oh gross. It's been a long time since I've been on a bus with kids, especially with one that puked. That sorta deflated our spirits and I've never seen so many windows shoot down in my life but now understand why.
After the bus ride, we went back to the refugees house and had the best meal prepared for us. A Nepali dish of peas and thin fried bread. It was a bit hard to swallow at first -- peas and puke certainly don't mix -- but it was so good that all was ok after a few bites.
It was a fun night and you never know what's in store!
