Christmas Pics

Here are some pics from the Christmas week...
Not in the mood to write a long post, enough to say that we all got the flu but I am the only one with a remaining headache, eight days and counting now... I accept suggestions on witchcraft or shamans or whatever! I need it to be over soon or I will become a bitter, resented, sad, depressed, cynical freak. (And the reason why I am not in the mood for writing is because the process is speeding up like a maniac)
Chronic pain = bad mood. (period)   

Opening the tree

Sankta Lucia celebration

We had the girls celebration of Sankta Lucia the 13th of December. Olivia wanted to be Lucia, Emily wasn't much for the hot spot and decided she would be a "tärna", and that would be one of the girls marching behind Lucia in the procession.  
No, the do not assist a religious kinder, it's just a national tradition and nowadays it's not only Lucia, tärnor and "stjärngosse" (those would be the guys in a white dress and the kinda KKK hat) but also Santa helpers and gingerbread cookies, but my girls where never interested in being anything but Lucia or the girl behind her.

Here are some pics.

No "15 Days Meal List" this time

We did not do the wonderful list of meals this time. It's time defrost the freezer.
I so much wish it would break so we have to buy a new self-defrosting one! Is it bad of me to wish my almost 10 year old freezer will break? I feel a little evil. I just HATE those days when we have to eat what's left and then, even worse, defrost the thing! with water running down and all those horrible, horrible things. 
Maybe if I don't do it it will break sooner and I will sooner have a freezer with auto-defrost function! 

What a post! shame on me!
