Mum and I went to the Christmas Concert with the trumpet player Per Nielsen at The Church of Our Lady. It was arranged by the Cancer Foundation, and it was a great success.
We both bought the new Christmas cd when we arrived as we wanted to make sure we got it;)
We had two hours with the most wonderful Christmas carols and songs, got to sing some our selves and just enjoying how wonderful the music sounds at the Church.
Afterwards Per Nielsen was giving autographs on cd´s and Mum turned into a true fan girl, got into the queue and got both our tickets signed;)

The Artist Per Nielsen

That was the day for bringing out Advent presents. First we went to my sister and gave her the presents for Rebecca and Benedicte.
We had coffee and heard about her new job (five month in a new firm) and the degree she is getting now. She and the girls will spend Christmas with her ex-MIL, and her new boyfriend. When MIL leaves, they will go to Copenhagen with boyfriend. So going from “I have no one to spend Christmas with and that is so hard on the girls”, where Mum and I made plans for Christmas for them, it is now “I have made plans for the entire Christmas and do not have time for you two”…..

We left after an hour and went to one of Mums oldest friends. I bought my second ever cat from her;)
She got breast cancer 10+ years ago and was sure she would die, and Mum promised her, that as long as she was here she would get Advent presents. We had more coffee and waffles and talked about families and the fact that she has problems with both her children and don’t get to see her two grandkids…sounds familiar?

That was the day we were going to Christmas Night with Sarah, Thea and Bro and SIL….only thing was; it was raining SO hard…After phone calls back and forth, we decided to meet up at Mums and then my Bro and SIL would buy Chinese Take Away and we could eat together and have an enjoyable evening….we had a great time, with Sarah and Thea being the centre of attention…

SIL, Bro, Sarah, Thea, Mum and Balder

Future Super Models

That was dads birthday, he would have turned 67 and would be an official Old Age Person wit ha pension;) He had looked forward to that…
Mum had decided the she and her would celebrate alone, as my siblings never goes to the grave or talks about Dad.
The same day, the Church and the Scouts had their annual Christmas sale, so we went there first.
Mum bought another Berenguer Doll for her collection, it was dressed in Christmas clothes and really cute.
After that we went to the cemetery with a beautiful floral centrepiece that I am sure Dad would have loved…
In the evening I went to Mums for Birthday Dinner. We had Duck with the trimmings, like Dad would have liked…
It was a nice dinner, we ate and talked about Dad, nice and funny stories….

That was The First Advent Sunday. Mum came over for SPN and then coffee and buns and presents. We both enjoyed SPN and Mum was being all Poirot and guessed the stuff with the sandwiches and the possessed people.
Then we had coffee and exchanged presents. I gave Mum a Christmas cd The Gregorian Chants. I got a gift card for a Theodore Build a bear, YAY;) He is my favourite from Alvin and the Chipmunks;)

I will get a Build A Bear Theodore;)

We made some jewellery before Mum went home.

The same day we had the worst Storm/Hurricane in Ten years…We had winds on 39m/sek. So we did not go outside if we didn’t have to.
Our Towns pride and joy, the Christmas Tree in town that we get every year from our Friendship Town in Norway, Frederiksstad, broke in two…the council is now working on getting another tree.
Fortunately the internet survived..So I got to see Steve Carlson at the Stageit. Concert at 11.00PM…
It was an amazing concert..I am so happy that he is making concerts like this, makes me feel less out with all of you guys going to an actual concert..
As I am a pathetic girl, I took pictures of my PC screen as I wanted some ”concert pictures” of my own;

Please be nice, they are taken with an ordinary digital camera from my PC screen..

Yesterday Mum and I went to Toys`R`Us to buy a present for Thea, then I went to Build-A-Bear and bought two gift certificates for Sarah and Thea. Then they get a little soft Toy, an actual Build-A-Bear and clothes for it. I know they want that, only Sarah says it is a secret from their parents, as they think they have enough soft toys.
We then went to the apothecary as I needed more medication and then to the post office to mail another batch of your presents;)

I’m not up to speed with anything today..My LJ is breaking down, I didn’t get any sleep last night as I was not doing that well. So I wrote another batch of Christmas cards and presents and went to the post office.
I invited Mum up for dinner tomorrow, as she will be taking Rebecca and Benedicte to the film club in the afternoon.

Otherwise I am sending out CHristmas cards and Presents for you..let me know when they arrive..I will PM you when I send them.

Next Wednesday I´m going to the hospital in Hjørring - 50 km north of Aalborg where I live - for my mammogram.......

So I guess this is my exiting life so far…

If any of you think that I do not have your name and address for a card and present please send it to me. I really try to keep up with all of you, but just in case let me know .

Love you guys♥

You've had a busy week. Mine has been boring in comparison.

I love your pictures - The church looks beautiful and the ones of Thea and Sarah made me smile.

Hope everything goes well for you next Wednesday.

Enjoy the rest of this week. xx

Thank you honey, I´m glad you like my pictures.

♥Hugs and Love♥

You've been busy! Sounds fun though, if exhausting!
I think it's lovely that you and your mum got together to remember your dad's birthday and make it something special, that's really nice.
Nov. 30th, 2011 02:16 pm (UTC)
It is exhausting, but I try to get naps, so the fatigue doesn´t take over to much;)
We had a nice day, talking and laughing and just remembering Dad...

Hello Annette X

Such a beautiful church, i love architecture like churches and/or old buildings X

I'm glad Christmas is building up nicely for you but what a shame your plans with the girls have fallen through now, i know how much you love them X

Oh your poor town's Christmas tree, it just goes to show how bad that storm must have been :(

lol love your pics of the concert, if only Steve knew what a dedicated fangirl you are :D

Good luck with the upcoming test

*Hugs to you* XxXxX

Hey Susan, glad to see you again♥

Me too, when I have been on holidays, I have always visited the Churches and old buildings. There is a sertain atmosphere there...

I think Mum is working on something with Rebecca and Benedicte and I will get to spend Christmas Eve with Sarah and Thea, Mum and I are invited to Bro and SIL.

Poor tree indeed - but we have gotten another tree, not as big but it is a tree..

LOL glad you like my pictures;) Fortunately I have friends here that go to Steve concerts and bring him greetings from me, so I get to tell him how much I like him and his music;)

Thank you Susan, I will let you know how it goes♥
♥Love you♥

My comment was eaten and is gone! Here is what I said before it disappeared:

You are very busy and I'm glad and I know you and your Mum must have enjoyed having Sarah and Thea over. The girls get more beautiful over time and I see this with each of the photos that you post.
Also, Per Nielsen is a very nice looking man. I can understand why your mum acted like a true fan girl and lined up for an autograph, and... I've also taken photos from the TV so there is nothing wrong with you, my dear. ((:

I'm sorry for the sadness that your dad wasn't there to join you in the good times but I think he is there in spirit and maybe you and your mum think so too and feel his presence.

Enjoy the holiday season. If you have a card for me, remember that I celebrate Hanukah. I will be sending a card for you and your mum. I do remember and it will arrive. :)

Love you, pippii ♥

♥*big hugs to you and your mum and Balder*♥

Hey Buzzie♥
We enjoy it so much when the girls come over, and we will spend Christmas Eve with them too.

I thought it was so cute to see Mum as a true fangirl, she so enjoyed the whole experience with the concert and the autographs. I love to see her happy.

I´m sure Dad is with us all the time, Mum and and I sometimes talkes like he is still here. We speak about him all the time and feel his presence, making us happy to talk about him.

Thanks you for letting me know you celebrate Hanukah, I send you a Christmas card last year didn´t I??
I didn´t have an actual Hanukah card, but I found it on the net and printed it, hope that is OK..I posted the card and your present today, let me know when it arrives.

Thank you for sending a card to Mum too, it means a lot to me and will to her too..

♥Love you Buzzie, hugs you back♥

That is a very pretty church!

The girls are too cute. Supermodels!!

I love the sharing of fun stories about your dad. That is a wonderful way to remember someone. *hugs*
Nov. 30th, 2011 12:05 pm (UTC)
I love that Church, really beautiful.
Awwwww thank youuuuuu♥
It was a good day, and we laughed;)

What a busy week!

Sarah and Thea are adorable as always.

Where is "You me and a Christmas tree" from? I've never heard of it before.
Nov. 30th, 2011 12:03 pm (UTC)
It really was;)
Awwww thank you, glad you like my pictures.

"You me and a Christmas tree" is from the album "The Steve Carlson Band - An Auld School Christmas"
Only six songs, but worth buying;)

I'm glad you had such a lovely dinner with Bro, SIL, Mum and the girls, lovie! And while I am happy sister found a new jobbie, I'm not happy with the way she treats you and your Mum.

Dinner for your Dad's B-Day sounds like it was lovely - what a wonderful way to remember him!

Whew! What a storm!! Though I must say, LJ has been crazy everywhere!

What a full week! Hope the rest of your holidays are as lovely, sweetness!!


OH!! And tell your Mum thumbs up for impersonating Poirot and using her little grey cells!! *Sends kisses her way!*

Hey darling♥
Yeah we had a great time with Thea and Sarah...the problems that you probably doesn´t know that much about is, that my Sis and Bro have been really mean to me and my parents before..so now mum and I stick to them to spend time with the girls...My sis is the worst now, as Bro is trying to get into Mums good book after Dad died.

We had a lovely dinner, talked and laughed and remembered, it was nice.

UGH that storm was the worst in over ten years here..but we are getting a new Christmas Tree, and my internet survived, so I got to see Steves show on Stageit;)

Love you darling♥

LOl yeah I stay away from spoilers as much as I can, until Mum and I have a chance to watch the episode..so I had no idea that the sandwiches had anything to do wit hit..but Mum is cleaver;)

♥hugs and kisses♥

Hei kjære!

Jeg vet at jeg er veldig sent ute, men i øyeblikket løper tiden fra meg.

Kirken er vidunderlig og jeg elsker julekonserter!

Jentene er så søte, de ser alltid utrolig glade ut når de er sammen med deg!

Jeg synes det er flott at du og moren din tilbringer din fars bursdag sammen. Jeg håper det går bra med begge dere!

PC'en min gav opp før Jensen kom i bildet...men resten var herlig nok!

Julekort...jeg skal prøve å komme i gang i dag :).
