Christmas 2012

This christmas has been incredible! It has been so nice to be back home with my family and we have had an amazing christmas eve and christmas day together.

On christmas eve my grandparents came to my family’s where we had pinnekjøtt, riskrem and lots of good christmas cakes. We played a gift game, had a quiz, and over all just had a great time together. We took good time to open our presents and everyone were extremely happy with what they got, including me!

On christmas morning was started with christmas socks and a movie infront of the TV. Later we went to my mothers side for dinner and cakes. Was also delicious and so much fun to see everyone again!

Today is not only the day the world goes under, it is my wonderful mothers birthday! I would just like to wish her a happy birthday. She is the most amazing woman. She is always there for us and is such a kind and caring mother! I love her so much!

Amsterdam Light Festival 2012

 

Today I went to the Amsterdam Light Festival with Tatjana and my roommates after a long study day! The show consisted of christmas decorated boats driving in a parade through the canals! It was absolutely beautiful and gave me such a christmassy feeling. Now all that remains is three exams, some studying and then it is christmas time! Cannot wait to go home and spend the holiday with my family.
I took so many pictures today that this is just a fraction of all of them! Just loved it so much. Some of the boats were breathtaking while some were just really cute or cool!
