Merry Christmas!



Sorry I haven't posted a Christmas post before now. I'm usually punctual about these things. But at least I'm posting now, it's not that very late. I thought I'd tell you a little bit about how I spent Christmas and plan to spend the rest of it, and pictures will come later.

December 23rd, little Christmas Eve there's always someone here, eating "risgrøt". So grandmother, grandfather, aunt Aina, uncle Øistein, uncle Trond-Aril, aunt Anne-Berit, Amund, Marte, Rikke and Adrian was here. Trine, Una and Terje stopped by later.

On Christmas Eve, after a night of heavy snowfall, mom, dad and me drove to Lier to celebrate Christmas Eve with aunt Hanne, uncle Espen, Tilla, Scott and Phillip. That was nice! I drove, and it was a bit nervewrecking parts of the way because of all the snow. But I'm thankfully not afraid to drive in that kind of weather. Christmas dinner was good, got lots of nice presents, and the company was good. I got a gift certificate to Platekompaniet, a pocket knife, a clock radio, some lotions and stuff, a scarf, and other things.

Today we were at Gjestad with dad's part of the family. Had more Christmas dinner, ate chocolate, and talked. Tomorrow mom's side of the family is coming here for turkey and ham.

So Christmas so far has been very nice, despite the insane aching in my leg. I talked with aunt Hanne about it yesterday, and she had some idea about what might be wrong with me. So what she said convinced that I should perhaps go see the doctor about this, and let the chiropractor deal with my neck instead. Cause I don't feel like I get anything from the chiropractor appointments anymore. At least not back wise. I really really want to go see a reiki healer, but I don't think I can afford it. I might be able to afford the regular appointments, but the first time is always a lot more expensive. Which I think is very stupid.

But enough of that. I have to go now, so I'll post later, with pictures.

You know it's Christmas when...

... the commercial from Coca Cola is on TV. I did a search on Youtube and found lots of nice videoes, some I think has never aired in Norway. Enjoy!

Christmas logo competition

A few weeks ago a Christmas competition was announces on the Norwegian forums for Ikariam. I couldn't resist the temptation and remade the logo we were given and posted it in the topic. About a week ago, I won! The prize was a game coupon for 10 Euro and a fan art winner title at the forums. Today the logo appeared on the forums! Go check it out!

Tertitten

Today, mom, dad and me took Mons for a ride with Tertitten, the old train at Sørumsand. We did it last year too, and were talking about doing it again next year, so I suppose it is becoming a tradition. Here are some pictures!









 

Third Sunday of Advent

Today's the third Sunday of Advent, and what do you know? I'm posting the image on the day, just minutes after I blew out the candles!

Christmas Workshop

Last weekend was the Christmas Workshop weekend. And for once, we actually did some "workshopping" this time around.

On Friday, Tine, Marion and Ragnhild came and we made and ate lasagne and played Rome. On Saturday Tine, Marion, Ragnhild, me and mom made "lussekatter" and "seigmenn". We also made "julegrøt" when mom and dad went out, and watched The Polar Express. On Sunday me, Marion, Ragnhild and Heidi made Christmas cards, gift tags and hats.














Second Sunday of Advent

A bit late perhaps... But whatever.

Here are some pictures from last Sunday, when 2 candles where being lit, along with pictures of my calender light, Christmas star and new curtains from yesterday.
