Gott Nytt År!

P and T looking forward to freezing more food in 2008.

Happy New Year! To ring in 2008, we went over to Magnus and Johanna's for a par-tay. Good people, good food and good times! (ask Magnus about his bacon wrapped dates!) Not to mention there was some wicked guitar playing going on. Yes, virtual guitar playing via Guitar Hero, not sitting around the campfire singing John Denver songs, guitar playing. Mattias, you are my Guitar Hero!

The real Guitar Hero

Then, we went for a walk across town to have a glass of champagne with Papa Kaj and Anneke. (Note to self: 3" heels and cobblestone streets - not a good combination!) The walk was quite refreshing, and we could see plenty of fireworks. They actually sell fireworks here in the grocery stores!

P. enjoying the fresh air during the walk.

It is tradition in Sweden to bring in the New Year by listening to a reading of Nyårsklockan, which is Lord Tennyson's poem no. 106 translated into Swedish. Ring klocka, Ring!

The Dick Clark of Sweden.

We made it home. This is for you, Hollywood!
