My MARATHON this Christmas ............

Soon Christmas Evening 2011 when everything should be ship-shape.Yes,running is the best thing to do....LOL...... My preparation for this X-mas must soon come to an end.Not there yet,but I have been baking,wrapped the presents,talked to Santa`s reindeers,and to himself!,watched my two Gch taking part in the performance of the Nutcracker,written cards,not to mention joined Arne and Carlos in a knitting "party" in a bookstore in Oslo,etc-etc. Still two Christmas stockings to make and one Christmas table cloth.Dying to open my SSCS gift as well as gifts from close blog friends and gifts from quilt friends.What a lovely time we`re in for very soon.
Here are some pictures for you to enjoy!
Relaxing after their very first performance,my two Gch: Kasper,8, was in the Christmas Party and Eline,6,was one of the little snowflakes:-)This was the "every second year"-performance at KGB Dance and Ballet School just outside Oslo.Such a lovely play to watch and to listening to the beautiful music.Do they both dream of being top dancers one day?? The picture below shows Mette and Sindre being Clara and the Prince.


Enjoy the photo of this lovely Christmas Cake,unfortunatly not mine,just a picture I found .... LOL .... but it looks ever so good:-)
I wish you a MERRY CHIRSTMAS. More news from me in next week as I have the some finished projects to show you.Till next time:
Hugs,

I am nearly finished wrapping. I will then sit with a celebratory hot choc. It sounds like you and I have been running the same race. Gorgeous reindeer. How special to see your grandchildren in the Nutcracker. Lovely music as well as a fabulous story.

Merry Christmas!
