We've been very busy since our last blog, and time is flying by!
Getting out of the flat has become more cumbersome due to the cold, snowy (& dark) weather. By the time the kids are dressed, we're breaking in to a sweat! We then tote them in the double-stroller out in the tundra. When we return home, we're all exhausted!
FOR THE RECORD...MOM WAS RIGHT! If the temperature is 14 degrees (F) or below, you're not supposed to take small children outside for long. I poked fun of my mother saying that the kids' lungs could freeze, but apparently they can!
- JR got into barnehagen - aka preschool - and he LOVES it! The teachers speak English (the children do not). They go outside almost daily, which he thoroughly enjoys! He is the oldest child in his class of 21 kids (8 teachers), and is sure to be a leader in his class.
- Evie has another tooth (4 total) and two more on the way! We can hardly get her to eat baby food as all she wants is 'real' food. She loooves bread and fruit - as well as any crumb she finds on the floor! She enjoys standing in front of the TV and turning it off and on. The more we laugh, the more she does it. She's such a ham!
We will be spending Christmas in Denmark with our friends, Marianne and Bjarne. We're looking forward to sharing the holiday with them in their lovely home. We will, of course, miss our family and friends, but hope everyone has a wonderful holiday season and a blessed 2011! As they say here in Norway, GOD JUL!
