And we're out of prison

Hi Ya'll ,

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas.

Ours was as good as being all alone ,except for each other, and being held prisoner by public holidays ,would allow.

That translates to we've been stuck in this house since Friday ,with nothing in town open, no where to go ,nothing to do, and we've been going mad with boredom.

We have entertained ourselves by napping exsessivly,spying on the rats in the back yard ,watching episode after episode of Dexter in the middle of the night, and smoking too many cigarettes.

Family and scabble desperately needed here

The famous self made, double baking pan :) sweet potato casserole on one side,stuffing on the other.

Amazingly ,all our food turned out fabulous!

Including the zombie turkey.

"who wants some turkey?"

"we do! we do! I can really have some turkey?"

Trot ..trot.. trot...

"You are awesome mama!We LOVE turkey!"

Huge table for 2, almost sad ,isn't it?

Daddy's bland ,unseasoned food

MMMMM...that's more like it!


Yesterday ,we could take no more of being stuck in this house. We decided to take a drive over the bridge to Malmo ,Sweden. 

Little did we know that we would be charged a 295 Dkk toll on EACH side of the bridge. Yowza! 

I took several pictures but it was so gray and dreary out ,the pictures were all crap. 

Had I been alone, I would have parked some place and walked around or something. Butttt....since hubby was in charge, we just drove around for a while and then headed back over the bridge to Copenhagen. He was in a hurry to get back because we had found out that the hardware store was open. 

No, I'm not kidding.

At that point ,walking around the hardware store sounded like a grand adventure, even to me.

And he DID put the doors on our closets last night. So, it's all good.

I'm dying to know what everyone got from Santa! 

Copenhagen is back among the living today ,everything is back open,so I am out of here!

                                     Have a great day peeps!

                                             luv me

  5. Your turkey looks great! We went to Nashville and spent Christmas with our younger son's family (3 grandsons) They were up at 6 am. Ugh. Yes, I got up for that so I could take pictures. They got a Wii and we had a lot of fun with it. Son invited the neighbor family and their in-laws. so we had 15 for Christmas dinner. Son cooked standing rib roast and boy, was it good. Got back today. One day you can tell your grandchildren that you upped and went to Sweden and came back home the same day. G5
