Time flew by extremely fast
once again, and Christmas arrived way faster than we expected. I start to believe that time will actually speed up toward the holidays, especially when I’m planning to make handmade presents and cards.
Our Christmas was wonderful. While we both missed our families, we still had a great time together – and with the dog of course! We cooked traditional Scandinavian Christmas delicacies such as potato, carrot and pasta casseroles,
Swedish Finnish meatballs, vegetable salad of onions, carrots, red beets and pickles… We also had pot roasted beef. And a variety of cookies as desserts.
Obviously we also made it to Santa’s Nice list also this year….. We got some lovely gift cards, Jason got me cadence/speed sensor that talks to my Garmin heart rate monitor, waterproof Pelican cases for CF memory cards, PhotoShop CS 6 book, tickets to a ballet. And my gifts to him included a Jambox Speaker that works over Bluetooth – now he can be jamming in his office, a new Leatherman multitool, and a Snowpeak lantern for
our his backpacking adventures, in addition to some small stocking stuffers. Our trip to Boston, MA, later this week is our shared Christmas present.
