The day before Christmas

This post used to contain pictures, but due to new storage limitations from WordPress, I had to fix the problem and decided to create a new blog that works as an archive for all the posts from my two years in California. This full post can be found here.

I can’t believe it’s Christmas Eve tomorrow. The magic of Disneyland have unfortunately disappeared. But that is okay, it’s not gonna be a normal Christmas anyway. I look forward to it a lot though. Seeing the faces of the kids when they open all their gifts on the 25th and the Swedish smorgasbord tomorrow. We are going to have it at 5pm tomorrow, so no more food/candy from now on until then :).

My day was long but nice. The morning was a lot of wrestling, beach ball passing and monkey in the middle. For lunch I made Swedish pancakes for the whole family except me, I tried being healthy by eating a salad. In the afternoon the girl had a friend over and they baked super cute holiday cupcakes; winter wonderland with tiny fondant christmas trees, wreaths, gifts and snowflakes. I and the boy went to the library. He was really upset about it at first, but his parents wanted me to take him and they made him stop crying and then he was really excited when we were there and he picked up several books to read at home this winter break. Kids are weird.

He wanted a playdate in the afternoon but no one was home of his friends so the two of us spent the afternoon together playing a lot of Wii, like boxing. Oh my, I was sweating after that, haha! Then I started on a new Rainbow Loom bracelet for the boy, a hexafish. It’s easy but it takes time. I didn’t finish it, maybe I will do that tomorrow.

The floor was finished today! It took more than three weeks but now it is finally done. My hostparents are up right now cleaning and putting everything where it’s supposed to be. A lot to do, but the house feels new and refreshed now and the floors are really pretty.

Now time for some reading!
