As you all know Sarah arrived at Sunday and was supposed to stay until Tuesday.
So for the bad news first to get them over with; as a punishment for Sarah talking back to her Mum, she was only allowed to stay until Monday afternoon.
She was upset, so was I and my parents……..but we made the best of the time we had.

When she arrived, we first went down to my parents for an advent celebration.
Afterwards we went shopping and that is always fun with Sarah;) She wanted to make vegetable soup and quarter pounders for dinner, so she ran around and found all the ingredients she would need;)

After we got home, we decided to make the gingerbread house; and believe me, boiling sugar is hot when you get it over your fingers!!! But luckily it was only me;)

Sarah made dinner with me supervising and doing what she told me;) it turned out amazing, I’ve said it before but she really is a great cook….

I’ve had gotten my Christmas tree Saturday so we got it inside and decorated it.
Sarah made the star at the top, as I’ve broken mine last year;)
I was a bit worried whether Jensen and Sammy would leave it alone, but they haven’t touched it yet.

We then had popcorn and watched movies until it was bedtime;)

Sunday started at 7.30.…we for Sarah a couple of hours earlier. She had woken and then was unable to sleep again, but instead of waking me, she have entertained herself, watching cartoons and drawing;)
So we made our usual Sarah-is visiting-breakfast; bread, soft-boiled eggs and pancakes with coffee for me and chokolate milk for her.

After breakfast we started getting ready for our Christmas thing; my parents was coming up for coffee around noon to give Sarah her Christmas present, they wanted to see if she got happy when she got it.
Sarah wanted to make a lottery, like the one the scouts made, so we bought prizes and went through my kitchen for candy and candles;)
My parents “won” all the prizes and then we had coffee and Sarah had her presents, she got really happy…

After a couple of enjoyable hours my parents left and Sarah and I spend the remaining time watching cartoons and knitting;)

When my brother came to pick her up, he got angry that she had gotten her presents, but I ignored him and pretended not to hear his outburst.

Yesterday it started snowing o much that most of Denmark broke down. It is so typical, when we have a half a day of snow, nothing works;)

My Mum had to go to work, so my dad and I ran the last errands, it took almost two hours, but now we are finished with all the shopping.

This afternoon my parents comes up to me for coffee, and then we start Christmas.
Tomorrow we’ll be cooking and bring the food to my grandmother as we will be spending Christmas at her place…..

Thank you too all of you for the Christmas cards

Well it sounded like you had a great time even with the dreaded SIL :) Merry Christmas Hon' *And yes, I will probably say it again before the day itself hehehehe*

We did have a wonderful time, doing all the Christmassy things that Sarah don´t do at home.

♥Merry Christmas to you too♥

What a wonderful post pippii. I love when you share photos with us and I'm happy that you all had such a good time with Sarah. She is a real beauty.

To answer your question: Is it proper to hate your sister-in-law at Christmas?
Of course.
But, only for a very little while. Then, let it go so it doesn't take up even one tiny bit of your energy which is needed to keep you healthy and enjoying life.
I think your SIL should have found some other 'punishment' as she included your parents and you in the punishment and she must have known that it would affect all of you, not just Sarah. It will come back to her somehow.
But, you had your good time anyway.

Gingerbread house looks delicious and very nicely decorated.
Trees and cards and, of course, Sarah - lovely.
Snow - well, the picture is nice but we just had snow here and I'm ready for it all to melt and not come back - unless there is some way for it to fall only on gardens. Then, fine.

Have a joyous Christmas with your parents and whomever ever else shares it with you.
I will go Sunday to a belated Hanukah celebration with my family now that the nieces are home from school.
*big hugs to you*

Thanks buzzie, we di have a great time..

Sometimes i think that the SIL is jealous of all the things Sarah and I do, because they hardly does anything like that at home.....

The snow here is starting to melt, so maybe we won´t have a white Christmas after all:(

Happy Hanukah to you and your family, I hope you have a great time with the nieces.

Awwww... these pics are all so lovely, I'm glad you had such a great time.

And of course it's proper to hate your SIL... I think it's unbelievable that she chose to punish Sarah just for talking back... and then with something that hurt all of you. Ah family... best not talk about it.

Merry Christmas, Sweetheart! ♥

Ack family....but my brother is a whimp, anddoes everything the SIL says.....but you know how it is.

♥Merry Christmas to you too honey, I hope you and the hubby have a good one.

Oooo...I saw my card there. \o/

As for Sarah, too bad for her she had to shorten the visit. At least you all had a wonderful time with her.

And for the snow. I watched on TV. Gosh, when did all those snow fall from the sky? It's like, last Friday, everything's still fine. And the next day, my TV full with white color!

We had such a great time together as always..
The snow is slowly starting to melt, so maybe we wont have a white Christmas after all:(

lovely post, I am so glad you had such a good time with Sarah, she really is a beautiful child. It's not fair of her mum to shorten her visit as a punishment though, that meant you and your parents wee also punished!!!!! At least you had a wonderful time and Sarah will always remember these times you give her XXXXX

Take care, have a wonderful Christmas and I'm so glad we have become friends XxX

I think my SIL gets jealous about the things we do with Sarah that is why she punishes all of us....
But we had a great time together;)
♥Merry Christmas, I´m so happy that I´ve met you♥
Dec. 23rd, 2009 08:28 pm (UTC)
At least you still had a good time with Sarah even if it was shorter than you wanted. Your pictures are gorgeous.

I hope you and your parents have an great Christmas:)
