How do you measure a year?

I'm taking on the "picture a day" challenge for a whole year. Ought to be good.

*** Lots of fun in the snow ***


Snowflakes on my window.


The bock.


I missed today but considering the travel day I had I think I can be excused...
8:50 flight to Boston and the security line in Seattle was crazy- I got on the plane at about 8:40 or so. The flight took about five hours
Three hour layover in Boston and then another five hour flight to Iceland.
Pretty much just got on the plane directly to go to Stockholm but we had to sit on the plane for an hour because of delays at Arlanda airport in Sweden.
Two and a half hours on the plane after it took off and I made it to Sweden and had about an hour and a half car ride to my grandparent's house.

The Beginning Band performing Hot Cross Buns :)


Somehow I managed to fit all of that in one suitcase and stay under the weight limit- yes way.

The Space Needle showing off its Christmas look.


Anders at the Red Kettle Concert with the very, very large kettle


Since we're heading off to a distant land for Christmas we had a "fake" or "pretend" Christmas early with our family here :)

My grandparents brought this back for me when they went to Holland. I'm 1/4 Dutch!


"So wrap those presents, fill those stockings
Love from me to you, to you, to you
So grab your winter scarves and mittens,
Build a snowman too, whoo, whoo
So trim that tree and let's go sledding
Who has Christmas cheer?
We do! We do! We do!"
-Why Can't It Be Christmastime All Year, Rosie Thomas

Just keeping my head above the water...


Anders room has a new, older look I'll have to take a picture of later and this poster replaced an old one of a spaceship :)


I love getting Christmas cards!


Another cute member of the tomte family

My mom collects these Swedish "tomtar"- one for every Christmas since she was married. They are all so fun!


The current bane of my existence- applications


Deryn got me this cool handmade necklace from the Marshall Islands


Yup, my brother has already wrapped a present- and it's for me!


It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...
