God Jul og Nytt År!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Sorry there haven't been many posts as of mother and father-in-law are here visiting from New Hampshire and that has kept me occupied.
We had a quiet Christmas at our home this year. It was so nice to not be traveling this just wake up at our own pace (actually Tim's) but was nice to be at home this year. It was also nice to have company! Living overseas for the last 3 Christmas's...we haven't had many visitors in our home. It is nice to share our lives with loved ones in person versus via a web blog! :o) So for anyone thinking of venturing this way, we'd love to have you!
The day after Christmas (known as 2nd Christmas here or Boxing Day in Canada) is also a holiday. We drove up to Sirdal, which is about 2 hours inland and up towards the mountains. There we rented a huge cabin with some American military friends of ours, the Mauldins. They have three boys. There were 13 of us in this spacious cabin for three days and two nights. There was plenty of snow when we arrived and we did some sledding before the darkness rolled in (that's about 3:45 here). The weather did not cooperate the second day and we had rain most of the time. However, we were able to get a few runs down a large hill on more ice than snow in the late afternoon. The day we left was beautiful...the snow was falling and it was just a winter wonderland.
