|The dogs get their present first.|
Everyone brought something to the dinner table. We decided to bring "carnitas" with all the fixings. It is a very tasty mexican dish. We used flower tortillas (the corn tortillas here are not up to par) for the creation of the tacos. The swedish traditional dishes were great. We all had a great time at the dinner table eating, talking, drinking, singing, and toasting. A big tradition here in Sweden is to watch "Kalle Anka" on TV on Xmas eve. Donald Duck here is called Kalle. This tradition began in 1959 here when TV was in its infancy. They show clips of many Walt Disney cartoons. A great time was had by all. We miss being with our family this year but being invited by our neighbors to join their Christmas family gathering makes our hearts warmer.
|Ents in the mist.|
|We also fed the ducks with our day old bread.|
|What do they want?|
|One day we will know.|
It is good to be alive. To our family we send our love and know that our thoughts are always with you.
Merry Christmas to all.
