My Nativity set...

 Don't worry Dad, I have the instructions.
Next Christmas, perhaps a box with packing peanuts is the best way to go...

Everyone has one...

Thanks for the keys Dad...

An ornament...with my name on it!

I'm Swedish?!...the world of a multi-ethnic family

 After some clarification, we assured Benj that he is not Swedish in blood, but in heart.  And as best as we could, we submerged him in a whole morning of Swedish tradition....  Like all good 'swedes' we forced him to dress the part and even subjected him to some of the ethnic 'delicacies'. 

 (yep, that is pickled herring)
(Translation of this face: "that was good")

Come eat with me...


Happy Birthday to Mommy!

The perks of a parent who has a birthday...I get the balloon.  Let it be known that it lasted approx. 10 minutes before I put a hole in it.  I have skills!
