Merry X-mas & Happy New year!

We have had a good x-mas and tomorrow it's time to go to Sweden. It's definitely a new experience for me packing for both myself and somebody else. I will bring the camera but I'm not sure if I will have time to update the blog. If not, I will post pictures when I get back to the US. Happy New Year!

The one and only picture I managed to take of Loke on Christmas day.
Thank you "farmor" & "farfar" for Loke's cute little outfit!

Thought these could be useful...

when going bowling for example. (For Loke)

Passport is here!

It finally arrived, Loke's passport! Now we're just hoping there will be no delays and that Loke is going to do good on the plane. It has been another good day here in Steamboat. In the morning we went to "Yoga with babies" and after lunch we took Oden for a walk in town. Loke and I went swimming and he was laughing and kicking his little legs like a crazy baby in the pool. Tonight is the annual x-mas dinner up at the college and Max is cooking up a storm. Yummy!

Winter Wonderland

Even though I sometimes get a little bored of living in a small town, I sometimes think it's not a place I rather be. Saturday for example. 4 hours of powder skiing, 1 hour in the hot springs, a walk with all my boys along the river, a dinner out, and a Christmas parade on main street followed by a glass of wine at home in the couch. Loke couldn't come snowmobiling but he practiced his steering with daddy on the driveway.

Big Boy

This pajama has never been washed and it is size 9 months. Loke is not even 5 months old but it fits him like a glove. Max thinks he is going to be a basketball player.

Small town issues

Yesterday we got bored of just hanging around the house so we spent the whole day in Steamboat. But after going for a walk we didn't have much to do there either. Sometimes I get really sick of living in a small town!

This semester I have been using a friend's house when I need a place in Steamboat to hang out for a few hours since it takes too much time going back and forth to Oak Creek where we live. I wish we were super rich and could afford a house in Steamboat, and another one in the Caribbean :)

Today I called about Loke's passport and I went ahead and paid for expedited service because I was nervous he wasn't going to get it in time. Don't want to be in that situation when it's time to go! I have to stay home today because my new phone is being delivered in the afternoon and I have to sign for it. That's about it for now...

Going Bananas!

In this picture I think Loke looks a lot like me when I was a baby.

When Loke eats his rice cereal he sometimes gets a little sleepy...


Today I reserved a bassinet for the long flights between Newark/Stockholm & Stockholm/Newark. It's going to look somewhat like in this picture. Pretty handy I think! I also upgraded one flight between Denver and Newark to Economy Plus so that I didn't have to sit in a middle seat with Loke for 4 hours. It cost $49.00 more. On all the other flights I fly in Economy but with aisle seats. And on the long flights over the Atlantic I got the first row which was the only row you could get for the bassinet. Now I just hope everything is going to go smooth and with no delays.

Yesterday I booked an airline ticket to Sweden for me and Loke. It was a wonderful x-mas gift from my dad. Max was invited too but he wants to get as much snowmobiling in as possible and he also starts work back up two weeks before I do so it will just be me and Loke. We are leaving the 29th and returning the 13th of January. I am really excited yet a little nervous how Loke is going to do on the plane. My sweet mother in law just sent me this picture and that made me wonder if Loke is going to get a pat down as well :)
