Busy little bees

Hi all!

Today me and Seth have been out in the city getting x-mas gifts for Nemo and my mum and husband and also a new pair of jeans for Seth and for me;=) We had a nice mum-son afternoon and we started it out at Grand Hotel with bagels with ham and "julmust" a traditional Swedish soft drink we drink around x-mas. Soooo yummie!

When we borrowed the hotel´s toilets I saw these wonderful ginger bread houses, that the head chefs in the kitchen had made. I asked if I could take some photos and they were so kind and let me do that so I can show you them here;=) I wish I could build so cute houses too! They even had windows and furnitures inside, like real doll houses!




Didn´t have so much time for outfit photos today and both boys wanted to be in the pictures but here´s two photos at least for you=)

 Now I need to sleep cause tomorrow it´s a busy day again - some more x-mas gifts to be bought and also some x-mas food to be cooked. 
Sleep well now and tomorrow it´s the day before the day!

Hej Anette!

Vilken underbar dag ni verkar ha haft :) Pepparkakshusen ser ju suveräna ut.
Min mor prövade att göra egna i några år, men antingen så sprang jag och åt av degen så att det inte blev något eller så tappade hon huset i golvet. Och det följdes av inte så trevliga ord :D
Sen slog jag in julklappar idag till familjen. Mina inslagningskunskaper är inte så höga, så paketen ser rätt så konstiga ut.
Jag tänker stanna i huset till efter nyår. Har fått nog av alla människor som ska handla samtidigt. Jag var ute på stan tre dagar den här veckan och då kändes det som att jag skulle kvävas. Och sen är det mellandagsrea... usch. Aldrig igen!

Ha det bra!

Hi Anette, lovely pictures ;)

But wanted to ask, what program do you actually use to add the text and in the top picture sepia tone and black out around the edges?

Take care :)

Hello Anette,
It´s nice to spend time with Seth, too. So that Johan has finally time with Nemo.
This ginger bread houses look really yummie. In Germany there are gingerbread houses built for themselves. ^^
However, this has never before Christmas.

Of the cookies have just survived. On Sunday we also make us have a nice day and nice Christmas dinner and we look at the Finnish film Joulutarina: to (English title Christmas Story). This year we do not do gifts. First, because we do not know what to give to each other and to the other in Germany it is more stressful than fun.

Anette I think your sons want to with image because it just makes fun let himself photographed in great outfits.
It make some with me in my renaissance dresses.;)

A happy 4th advent and a warm and peaceful Holy Night:)

Hi Anette! :-)

Those ginger-bread houses with the little furniture inside them ( which is actually quite intricate ) look cool :-)

And until now I've never heard of Julmust drink before but now I really want to try it :-) I find it interesting to read on the link you provided to the Wikipedia page that in Sweden at xmas Julmust thrashes Ccoa-Coca in sales and consumption. Here in the UK Coca-Cola is massive at xmas time in this country.

It's nice that you had a very nice mum-son afternoon. I've said it before and I'll say it again you strike me as a very good mum :-)

I'm going to have a nice easy day today as from xmas eve I'm in work for 6 days where me and my colleagues will no doubt be on the recieving end of verbal and physical aggression from the confused elderly patients we look after on our ward.

You do look a bit tired in one of the pictures of yourself that you posted this evening. So I wish you a good nights sleep and a very good day with whatever you have planned. Happy Sunday to you Anette! :-)

Hej my dear!
Sounds like a great mom-son moment :) nice!
The bagel looks yummie! When my cousin come here during holidays we often cook bagels, we put so much in it that its hard to eat! Ahah! If I remember I'll put a photo here later in the day :)

Like the outfit, you looks smart in it:)
Is it a new polish I can see on your nails? :)
About the boys wanted to be in the photo, maybe you could hide their faces with a heart or something like that with your computer? Just an idea :)

Hope youll find what you want tomorrow, shops will be crowded for sure ! :/ I also have to buy some gifts too!

Now I'm going to try to sleep again, dont know why I woke up but now I cant sleep. Normally im a very "sleepy" (?) person, can sleep anytime, anywhere. But since 2 days I dont know whats wrong with me :/

Love and many Hugs
Wish you a very good day and hope you'll have again little miracles!

Hello Anette. Just wanted to wish you a happy Christmas! I wanted to be the first! LOL I wish the best for you and your family today and always, a lots of health, peace and love.
I'm a little sad because I probably have to spend this time working on my college projects, but it will soon come my vacation.
By the way, the second picture really made ​​my day. Were you washing your teeth? LOL
Well, I guess that was all. I send you a big hug from Mexico.
Happy holidays! Feliz navidad, in spanish!

Oh dear...Sorry..I was mistaken in my previous comment... I thought that today it's 24th December...oh ;-( But today it's only 23th. Sorry!
We don't celebrate x-mas on 24th December, so I've confused the days ...lol I think I need a day off working ;-) But ANYWAY I wish you marry Christmas days =)

With love
