CHRISTMAS CHEER FOR CHRISTMAS NEAR

Except for a little bit of stocking stuffer wrapping to be done, everything is ready for the big 2 days coming up. When you're an American in Sweden, Christmas is so nice, you do it twice! Tomorrow we're having Anders' family over and watching Kalle Anka, having a visit from Tomte (sssh!), giving gifts and eating julbord (lost count). On Monday, with John and Simone we'll have the American version with stockings and more gifts and a big turkey dinner to round things off. We even have freshly baked Christmas cookies for dessert: Iced sugar cookies, Rice Krispie Holly Bars, Reindeer Poop, grandma's gingersnaps (yay!) and an assortment of German Weinachtsplätzchen contributed by Simone. Even the elves are taking a well-deserved rest beneath the Christmas tree in anticipation! Come on down, Santa, we're waiting!



The Biggest Brightest Birthday Wishes Ever to My Great Friend Kathey (sorry these are a bit belated!!)!
