Merry Christmas - God Jul :)

Merry Christmas - Happy Holidays - God Jul :)

I hope all of you had a wonderful Christmas weekend.  I was able to visit with my Aunt Tone (who is actually my sis's godmother but who has known my my whole life lol) and Cousin Toril and there 3 kitties (Positana, Chanse, Svarten) this Christmas.  Which was great since I'm away from my family in Houston TX :)

Mazipan Gris - Mazipan Piggy :) got it for finding "Mandelen i grøten" (almond in Norwegian porridge)

Toril smoking the big pipe lol, actually used to blow air on the fireplace :)

Chanse watching Toril being silly :)

Me wearing a dress.  I know, I know I was totally shocked too to find that I actually bought a dress.  It has been a long time lol.  I have lost a lot of weight and ok wanted to show it off :)

Me again in case you fell asleep during the previous pic lol.  Yes my hair is a lot darker :) I had it colored but it got a bit darker than planned lol. I'll be a bit lighter next month, but I really like the darker color.  Had to have a break from the blond :)

Christmas gifts :) Most are hand made, pretty cool right :)

OK I took most of the outside pics from inside!

Lots of beautiful snow :)

This balcony is wonderful in the summer :)

Can't go wrong with all the beautiful snow :)

Love the fireplace, lovely to sit in the peisestue /livingroom with it on :)

Svarten aka Studmuffin (yep my contribution lol) less than impressed with my pic taking lol.

Chanse ignoring the crazy lady with the camera :)

Positana asleep in the bathroom on the heated tile by the bathtub.  Flashing camera doesn't bother her at all :)

OK had to take a pic of their toilet seat, too cool :)

This was the temp on Christmas day -28C / -16,6F in case you were wondering brrrr :)

Yes once again taken from inside the house, the whole -28C was a bit brrr lol.

There is food put out for the birdies at this tree and they def come to snack :)

There is a river down from the house :)

Svarten still less than impressed with the camera :)

I think this pic would make a great Norwegian scenery card :)

Me, Christmas day outfit :)

Me, ok same sweater different color lol 2nd Christmas day :)

Me with a def lack of makeup for this event :)

Took this one and next 2 from across the road, the river is frozen over there.

My neighbor's foster dog Riko, who is visiting :)  I'll take care of him for the next week since his fosterdad is going to visit his family in Finland :)

I'm totally innocent, I didn't tear up the trashbag in my fosterdad's apt, promise :)

Hmmm I'm not sure about this crazy lady and her flashy thing!

Is that my fosterdad???  He promised he was only going to dinner...

Why are you whistling at me???  I'm busy watching out for the neighborhood :)

Ok watching out for neighborhood is hard work.  I think I'll take a small nap. :)

Hope you all had a wondeful Christmas :)  I miss spending it with my parents, sister, brother and sister-in-law, but had a wonderful Christmas with my aunt and cousin :)
