Happy Christmas!!

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas! Ours was fun! We went up to Shaun’s parents and they have a traditional Swedish dinner on Christmas eve and that consists of hard bread, different cheeses, and canned/jarred fish. The cod paste was something new that I had never seen nor tried, and sadly I wasn’t brave enough to try it this year! We had many other, less traditional items too that were delicious and I was definitely stuffed to the brim after that meal!! Everything was great! Preston liked Christmas morning…not that he really knew what was going on but…He got some cute books and blocks which he loved to play with. Grandma got to watch him practice getting up onto his knees and sitting up…she also got to see his belly laugh! He is actually getting pretty good at sitting up but he notices his feet and goes for them. He ends up folded in half with wet feet.

Snow was falling Christmas eve so we woke up to a white Christmas! Shaun and I tried to make a snowman but the snow was so powdery and dry that it wouldn’t pack so we ended up making a snow castle with a dinky snowman on top…it looked pretty weird. The snow would have been perfect for snowboarding, too bad you weren’t here dad!

Our house is almost completely packed, and a total disaster! Boxes are stacked everywhere, there is nowhere to walk, and not a whole lot of food is left in the cupboards. I have been getting creative trying to use up what we’ve got left. My dad is coming out tomorrow and renting a moving van so we’ll be all packed up, hopefully, by tomorrow night! Then I can start cleaning…hooray. That’ll be fun.

We hope you all had a great Christmas and have a happy new year! LOVE YOU!
