Sleeping in, Finished a great book, house spotless, and refrigerator stuffed with all the trimmings for a complete Swedish julbord and ready to go! Anders' parents got here just after 3 p.m. and the kids watched Kalle Anka until Karin and I left to pick up John & Simone at the airport (on time! smooth sailing!).

There is still a ton of snow and there are lovely advent lights in stars in the windows of every house. We had a wonderful evening stuffing ourselves silly on all the good food that Anders and his mom had prepared and then (finally! said Karin) opened a portion of the presents before dessert. The kids got the biggest present: a mini ping-pong table! I have threatened death & destruction if anything on the tree gets broken since it's been temporarily set up in the front hall, since John & Simone are sleeping in the playroom.

Anders is wrapping presents in our bedroom with the door shut, stockings have been stuffed and I am sitting here wishing that your year will be merry & bright! Much love and Merry Christmas!

mood: happy
music: Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse

Joy here :)

Merry Christmas to you too! Glad everyone arrived safe and sound. We are having a blizzard here in Kansas City. Visit at my mom's is going little rough (sigh) but okay. Tomorow we are having dinner at my younger sisters. My newly married niece and her husband will be joining us! She was a besutiful bride!! Did I tell you I took her wedding pics? So glad that went well too!

Enjoy your family. :))


Re: Joy here :)

I am and am glad you are too, despite the rough patch with your mom. Merry Christmas, Joy!

A very Merry Christmas to you and yours Liz, and a 2010 full of wonder and wonderful. XO

Sheryl, may your year be Merry & Bright!! So much love to you and your family! Merry Christmas, my friend!

How perfectly lovely. Here we are "wrapping challenged" this year, but I ended up making presents for JF's office (thanks to you and the salty-sweet bark that was a BIG hit), sending Christmas cards to everyone who sent to me last year, and basically letting go of trying to be or do more than I have. Feels lovely. Your Merry Christmas is far more advanced than ours. Raf made a beautiful portrait of me that I will cherish. The creche is almost finished. Blessings!

I'm so glad the bark is so versatile! :D I haven't made a second batch yet...haven't made it to the store that has the shelled pistachios. But soon!

Happiest to you and yours!

To you, too! Merry Christmas! :)

Merry, Merry Christmas Liz! The snow just keeps coming down here, big fat flakes. But the plows seem to be keeping up just fine. (Of course, we haven't driven anywhere today, yet.) We had a lovely time with my family last night and I am just about to begin cooking food to bring to Jeff's parents later this afternoon. We are all in our pajamas still, and had a wonderful Christmas breakfast after discovering what Santa left last night. Hope you are having a lovely and peaceful Christmas Day...Christmas love to you!

Hope you had a great day. Such a cute picture:))Your children are growing up.
Have a wonderful year!
