December fun

december 16, 2010

So much fun going on in December… Here are just some examples:

After months of preparations we finally had our Christmas Concert. It went very well. I believe that we had a  good mixture of up-tunes and ballads, traditional and modern songs, chorus and smaller groups, fun and serious songs.

Our quartet sang too, and here’s the music committee (directors and section leaders) singing Ave Maria:

Fredrik’s new school, Samskolan, had their annual Lucia dance, where all the students do Swedish folk dances dressed in folk costumes. I must confess I thought this might be a bit nerdy, but they were really good – they did some quite complicated dances – and they actually looked very nice in their costumes. And they seemed to have a great time!

And since I like our Lucia tradition, I was pleased that they also had a Lucia pageant . And a good one too!

Personally I don’t feel too stressed up about Christmas. My sister’s family will come here and we always have a great time. There aren’t really any ”musts”. Except for some serious Scrabbles tournaments of course.  Louise has already taken care of decorating the house. Here she’s baking Lucia rolls. Yummy!

There has even been time for some other fun stuff – like the last round of the style jumping series. Little Grandessa was really wild and crazy (probably because of the very cold weather) when we were warming up – kicking, bucking and running around like a maniac. I was actually a bit worried for a while. But once  in the arena we pulled our act together, flew over all the fences and got our third clear-round. Very happy :-)!

Waiting for the ready-signal

So much fun already. And more to come…
