Nydelig vinter. Beautiful winter.

Tok disse bildene på min vei til postkassa i dag i ca. minus 10 kuldegrader.  Ikke dumt å tenke på at om en uke drar vi til Kypros!
Took these pictures on my way to the mailbox in about 10 degrees minus today. Good to think about our journey to Cyprus in about one week!

Flere begivenheter i desember. More events in December.

Den 6. desember ble vårt 5. barnebarn, Zoë, døpt av sin far i Larvik Misjonskirke. Mor bar henne til dåpen, og mormor og bestefar, tante Berit og onkel Tom Erik var faddere.
On the 6th of December our fifth grandchild, Zoë, was baptised by her father in Larvik Mission Church. Her mother carried her to the baptisme, and grandmother, grandfather, aunt and uncle were godparents.


Sist fredag dro jeg til Våle utrustet med pepperkakedeig, melis og masse godteri, for å bake pepperkaker med tre av barnebarna. Det ble en koselig ettermiddag/kveld, først med baking, så med pynting og litt sang til jobben:
Last friday I went to my daughters home in Vestfold, equipped with ginger snap dough, icing suger and a lot of sweets to make ginger snaps with three of my grandchildren. It became a nice evening with baking, garnishing and a little singing while we did the job.
