Saturday 26.12.2009 Day 360

The best christmas gift ever

We slept in until 8:15 am.

It was a wonderful sunny day with blue sky.

In the afternoon we made a walk. The boys with a scooter and roller-skates. Afterwards they played with the Wii.

Later my younger son made the best christmas gift ever for me. He prepared a foam bath with candle lights. During the bath he read to me and massaged my back. Isn´t this a cute and wonderful boy?

Preparing the stuffing for the turkey

We slept in until 8:00 am.

After breakfast my younger son and his father prepared the stuffing and the turkey. My younger son did this very well and he enjoyed it so much.

The turkey tasted delicious.

In the evening both boys were allowed to stayed up longer. We enjoyed snuggling time on the couch, watching TV and drinking Glögg for the parents and children glühwein (special mulled wine for children) for the boys

Santa Claus´s little helper

Mail from my blogger friends and a colleague

I woke up at 7:30 am and brought my elder son to his grandparents.

I cleaned and tidied up the apartment, decorated the christmas tree and wrapped the last christmas gifts.

Just in the nick of time the christmas cards from my blogger friends Tracy and Normi arrived today. I was so happy. The cards and your words meaning a lot to me and touches my heart. Thank you both so much. It was the light of my day!!

Then my husband and I went into town for lunch and a cup of caffé latte!

At 5:00 pm we picked up both children at their grandparents. My younger son dressed up his costume as Santas little helper and made the handing out of presents.

Unfortunately not to the delight of my elder son; he wasn´t good with this "surprise"

Later my younger son talked to his girlfriend on the telephone. He is very sad because he couldn´t meet her this christmas time. Why? Because our christmas holidays were cancelled.

We had many tears as he was told about it.

Christmas gifts from Fabella

Last working day before christmas.

My younger son had a night out (it was the afternoon LOL) for eating carp with his grandparents. Afterwards he will stay overnight.

After school my elder son went home to his father, who already is having holidays. As I went home both were playing Mono*poly - what a rare view.

I can´t wait until tomorrow so I opened the first present in harmony yet. What a surprise. Fab you are the best. What a beautiful bookmark - I´ll use it every day!! And chocolate for emergency situations together with the "himmlische Schwester" (angel) is such a wonderful idea and touched my heart so deep. You can´t imagine how much it ment to me!!! My words aren´t enough to say thank you!!

Tuesday 22.12.2009 Day 356


In the morning I had the last appointment with my physical therapist for this year and did the last grocery shopping.

This beautiful angel I got yesterday from a friend of mine.

She know´s me and our family very well - just as my preference for angels.

You are such a wonderful person Elke - thank you!!!

Christmas mail from my swedish blogger friend

Today a lovely christmas card arrived from Sweden from Erika. I was so happy to find it in my letter box. Thank you very much for all visits on my blog during the year and all your lovely words.

Foggy morning

In the evening I went out with a friend of mine. We had a snack some soft drinks and a nice conversation. It was a wonderful evening.

I'm glad you've had a great Christmas, all the best for the New Year

Erika hat gesagt…

Thanks for the nice words about the card. :) I don't remember if I told you that your's arrived here? Sorry, a lot on the mind last week. But it did arrive, and it was beautiful! So cute and with the sweet note.

See you got very sweet and nice gifts in the angel and Fabellas packet too. So kind of them. Looks like you had a wonderful Christmas Eve too! Funny, we too had turkey for Christmas Day, but there were no stuffing inside ours. Delicious anyway. =)

I will be a bad commenter during the weeks to come, as we are leaving for vacation tomorrow. I hope to keep updating the blog, but no promise. =) We are going to San Francisco and San José, to visit friends. I wish you all the best for the New Year to come!

Tracy hat gesagt…

What a beautiful thing your son did for you, what a thoughtful son! We don't do Turkey @ Christmas, we are more Ham people. I think due to it being so hot at Christmas in NZ. Santas helper is so cute :) I am so happy you received my card, I was beginning to worry that it may never reach you in time. I love the picture of the girl in Fabellas gift it is absolutely beautiful. The angel is beautiful gift! Stay Safe my friend, your weather does not look inviting. ((HUGS))
