And we're here....
Here in England at Nana's and Papa's where we will be enjoying Christmas with all the family. We've been here since Friday very late as the flight was delayed 2 hours. We've been quite busy since we arrived.
The little man has been to his first football game. The princess, Nana and I went shopping and had a lovely pub lunch. We've played games and had lovely big family dinners already.
So we're more than ready for Christmas now...

I've just made a photo calendar with pictures of the children again. It was really easy which I prefer. I get easily annoyed (my husband will confirm that and he was relieved when it didn't happen this time!) if things like that are too complicated. This time I enjoyed it and I'm happily using this Pixum website again, the next time I need to make a photobook or a calender. The calendar arrived today and it's so cool. Each page is really thick and the pictures are good. I took a few photos of it to show you.
Do you do photobooks or calendars with photos on too?

How was your Halloween??
Thursday, 30 October 2014
We had such a great time and played a lot of UNO which nearly ended with a tantrum. Somebody just couldn't seem to win and it could have been dramatic.
No it wasn't any of the children but that's all I'm saying....

There's a dummy tree where lots of children all hang their dummies when it's time to give them up. The princess hung hers up (and I threw the rest in the bin) over 6 years ago but look what she spotted on the tree yesteday.....

We had plenty of time to kill though so a bit of shopping was done. Got myself a pair of shoes and some sunglasses. Oh, we of course got lots of little things for the little man and the princess who we had left in Denmark with mormor (my mum) too. After a big plate of English breakfast and the shopping, we found the village and the hotel. Such a lovely place, our room was behind the green door.

Here's the daddy and the diglots waiting outside the Opera House. Not sure if they thought Ariel would come out of the water.....

Want to see them??

He'll soon have holiday too though and then we're off to Sweden, to Copenhagen to see The Little Mermaid at the Opera and to visit friends we see way too little off. A trip to Germany and a Wedding in England is also on the holiday program but until the daddy is off, the diglots and I are relaxing and enjoying just being at home having no plans....
The weather has been okay so dinner outside and playing in the garden after has been possible. A bit of gymnastics is always fun, isn't it?

It was and lots of fun too - 2 days later it rained (first time in over a week) and now they can start over again. It's a fulltime job!

We went swimming again today. Well, I'm just watching but the daddy, the little man and the princess did the swimming. Both kids are now confident swimmers enough to be in the deep end. Both loves jumping from the diveboards. You've seen the picture of the little man jumping of the 1 meter. Here's the princess jumping off the 3 meter high divingboard.

It's swimming. When the little man was little and up to the age of 3ish he did not like going swimming. He'd happily play in the bath at home but take him to the swimmingpool and he'd scream the place down.... Suddenly that changed and ever since he has been going often with the daddy. When he started school last year he started swimming every week. It's a totally fearless boy the daddy takes swimming now.

The daddy took them to the path behind our garden to introduce the princess to the skating world. It's still unknown to us (and herself I think) why she wanted a skateboard. But maybe she'll go from being a princess to a skater girl soon... who knows? The daddy got to show off a bit of his skater skills whilst teaching his daughter. Think he was well happy that he was better than her as the little man soon, if not already, is better than him...
It only took a few minutes for the little man to get used to the bigger skateboard and then he didn't need the daddy's advice anymore! Now we just need to find out where the closest good skatepark is.

Well, he still lets me take photos of him playing without complaining so maybe that's why. In between practicing his skating on his little ramp our garden he plays footy. He preferes to be in goal....
Yesterday his friend and him played in the lovely sunshine we have at moment for a long time.

We met with some good friends and stayed the whole day, the princess playing with their daughter nearly the same age, us adults chatting and the little man skating.
The older boys at the skatepark gave him advice, let him try their skateboards and were just so cool. The little man had a blast and hasn't stopped talking about it...
Here are some photos of my cool little skater boy!

It was cool and everyone was really nice and asked lots of questions. I love that I can make a difference by doing such things - or I hope I'm making a difference...
I also enjoyed the train trip back with my latte and fantastic book.

Monday we went to Dinoland which is not a land of dinosaurs even though it might sound like it. No, it's a softplay and there is however real look-a-like dinosaurs. They just expanded so there were lots of new things to explore.
Not fun for a child, would you say??
