Christmas in Denmark

We had a wonderful WHITE Christmas in Denmark. As usual time went by way too fast, and I did not manage to see all of those I was hoping to see. Nevertheless it was great to hang out with the family, play with the nieces and nephews and eat a lot of (Danish) food. We left Denmark with even heavier suitcases than when we arrived, and are currently R E L A X I N G in Northern Iceland. We are on an equally tight schedule in Iceland, but Bjarni is down with a stomach flu, which has resulted in a small but much needed breather.

Count Down

The countdown has begun for our holiday back home. We leave on Monday (the weather better behave!!) and can't wait to see everyone again. First stop is Denmark for the Christmas days, and then off to Iceland for New Years. This will be Silja's first trip to the land of ice and fire, and I know Bjarni can't wait to finally show her to relatives and friends up there.

Until Monday we will be busy with old friends visiting from Denmark. They were suppose to arrive two hours ago, but are currently waiting in transit due the crazy winter weather. So let's hope they are able to get here soon. I have been looking forward to their visit for long.

Some pictures from the past week, where the cosy Christmas gatherings and the stressful shopping really kicked in.

1. Christmas party with the Baby Club
2. Drinking Glühmost with sweet Kerry at the Christmas Market (Altes AKH)
3. Wrapping up presents (Little Miss Curious were done playing by herself and had to partake in the activities by the table.)
4. And this where I'm at right now: trying to figure out how the heck we are going to fit all our warm winter clothes, baby stuff and family Christmas presents into two suitcases and not exceed 2x20kg. Hmmm...

I'm not sure I will be able to post more in the following days. If not then HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

Found this little fellow at one of the Christmas markets and had to take it home with me.

At the moment nothing beats the fun of removing a piece of cloth from the head. :)
I took Silja to the swimming pool today for the first time (at Terme Wien by the way, what a great place!), which was a lot of fun. We haven't heard a single peep from the crib after putting her to bed at 18.30. ZZzzz...

Christmas Spirit

Lots of snow prevented us from going anywhere this past Friday, so I made a bunch of Christmas cookies and admired the advent calendar I found at one of Christmas markets in town. I'm enjoying this month with all the Christmas preparations more than I have for years.
PS. Look! Bjarni made it snow in here too... :)
