We arrived in Söderköping yesterday and got started with the fun and coziness straight away. The kids decorated the tree and lay out all the presents, Sarianne and I did some last minute shopping, and we ate pizza and played games. Jamie also indulged in a heck of a lot of chocolate resulting in a tearful eleven o'clock bedtime. Today we slept in, ate lunch at the local hamburger joint, tested our patience with the kids at the dollar store, took naps, rolled meatballs, ate Mama Swede's awesome annual turkey, and now we're getting ready to play some more games. Tomorrow is Christmas Eve and will be even more fun-filled. So far it's been a great Christmas vacation.
