Benji bounce

Sea Mooonster!

Yes lovely Austria had no snow, no snow storms, no ice, no frozen anything! What they lacked in wintery winterness they more than made up for with hideous sea monsters from the deep waters of Lake Constance!

I got a little carried away with the sculpture!

Sara, Mormor and the kids create a classic!

Iron Man

Benji has now turned the corner with his drawing. After almost a year of dragging him to the drawing table, now he loves drawing, colouring and creating.

Friday morning!

Bella didn't feel like going out into the dark and snow, so she sat in this corner for a good 10 mins...stubborn? You betcha!

The Nativity Story

In case you didn't know it, here is my lesson!

Lucia 2012

Benji wants to be Tomten (Santa). I reckon he's doing a pretty good job?

I have lived here for 8 years. I have never seen snow like this in December!

Xmas is coming!

We had the first of Advent on Saturday and we also had the mother of all snow falls. It continued for 3 days and the mercury plummeted to -14 degrees from 7 degrees!

Wilderness wanderers

Ben's friend Noah came over and we went hiking into the forest. The hot chocolate was delicious!

Darth Vader and OB1

After visiting Legoland in England Benjamin has started becoming very interested in Star Wars. Here is his hero of the moment, Darth Vader.

The everything machine!

According to Benji, you can put everything into this machine and then turn it into something else.

Morning run!

Living next to a massive forest is incredible...this was my morning run at -4 degrees...Stunning!

In a matter of a day Benji went from zero to Superhero. Now the obsession with Superheroes is rampant. (I don't think much of Bella's halloween outfit in the background, surely she could have put in more effort than just a nappy?).

Autumn...almost been and gone!

Hi all, It's with amazement I write this post. It feels as though summer was still in the air, a few leaves dropped from the trees, Bella got chicken pox (no photos!) then a week later Benji got it (no photos there either), Benji and I collected bucket loads of conkers and now suddenly it's -4 degrees in Stockholm and it snowed on Thursday! It seems as if all of the seasons in Sweden range from 2-3 weeks except winter which is a dead cert to range from 6-8 months! Some of our Autumn photos are here.

Happy Birthday Auntie Cathy!

From everyone here in Sweden, we hope you had a wonderful day and that you got spoiled! Lotsalove SFW xxx

Hanging out!

Once Bella recovered from the chicken pox she has become a little rascal. She looks all innocent and cute here but that doesn't tell the whole story!

Learning early!

Bella loves to follow Benji everywhere he goes...even if that's on the computer!

Chicken Pox

Bella has been poxxed up this week so a little time at home with Mummy and Daddy did the world of good!
