Merry Christmas everyone !

Here comes the third annual 'Ferrin Christmas fun' card. We put the girls in front of the camera and asked them what they thought about Christmas and this is a little of what came out ;)

You can catch the previous years here and here.
It's amazing how much the girls have grown the past years.

Lussa på Djurparken

As many of you know, we live RIGHT next to the Borås Zoo. It is a BIG zoo, and a fun one to visit. Our city and the zoo has a project going where they want to integrate kids with animals and nature. We just happened to get lucky and belong to the day care that got picked to be a part of this program. So two days out of the week the day care kids walk to the zoo and get to learn about the animals. One day out of the week the zoo keeper comes to day care and they have some kind of nature/animl activity/lesson. They get to do all kinds of fun stuff from helping make penguin food to riding the ponies and getting the first glimps of the new baby elaphant. They also go out in the forest to learn about exciting stuff. I think Elsa and possibly Kajsa now know more about animals than I do =)

Anyway, as a result of the fact that they have a lot of connection with the zoo the older kids at day care got to go and "Lussa" at the zoo. I happened to have the day off but Elsa got to go anyway. Lucia is a celebration in Sweden (Inspired from a saint in Italy) and is celebrated on Dec 13th. (Or on the days surrounding it) Lucia,a girl, wears a white simple night gown and wakes her family early in the morning with candles in her hair and breakfast in bed. She sings "Sankta Lucia" As she wakes everyone up. It's a SUPER DUPER cozy and fun tradition. I'm posting a little clip of Elsa right after they went and sang at the zoo. Kajsa and I went out to meet them and were greeted by a very happy Elsa.

P.S. December 13th marks my 6th year in Sweden.
I arrived in Sweden with Elsa in my tummy on 13 Dec 2002

Catching up

It's been a busy two weeks here with work and lots of play. I haven't really had a whole lot of time to update. My throat is starting to hurt and I seem to be getting sick again, so I took the day off to rest (I have quite a bit of flex time saved up at work which comes in handly for times like these) This weekend I have fri-sun off and I've planned a fun little girls night out with a bunch of friends and I REALLY don't want to get sick...er. So, cross your fingers that this day of rest will do me good. Thanks to the fact that I'm sick at home, you all get a little update =)
P.S. I just want to inform that our immigration process is moving along nicely!

So here's a little slide show to give you
a glimps of what we've been up to.

Okay Stacie, here's the recepie I promised you.
I got this recepie two weeks ago from an elderly lady at work. I tried it and it turned out really yummy and it was SUPER easy to make. I thought I'd share with the rest of you who want to try something new.
1 dl = just shy of 1/2 cup
225 C=437 F

Preheat oven
Pie Crust:
3 dl flour
125 grams butter or margerine (one stick)
2-3 tsp cold water
(I put a tad bit of salt in there as well)
*use your hands to mix (room temperature) butter and flour together, add water.

-1 grilled chicken (small)
(I'm cheap and used 3 frozen chicken breasts and fried them and then cut them into small cubes...it worked great)
-leek or green onions
-4 dl creme friache (you can use sour cream instead if you can't get creme friache)
-curry (use as much as you want...you probably won't need much)
-1-2 tbs chicken stock (if you don't have the liquid stuff, just use normal bullion)
-grated cheese.

*Pre bake the crust for 10-15 minutes (don't forget to poke the dough with a fork before you bake it)
*Cut chicken into cubes and lay in the pre baked pie
*Chop onion into small pieces and fry
*Add creme friache (to the onion in the frying pan)
*Flavour with curry, chicken bullion, and salt, let is cook for a minute or so
*Pour over the chicken and cover with as much cheese as desired
*Bake in oven at 225'C Untill the paj has a nice color (about 30 minutes)

Enjoy! Read more!

Do you have to drive over a bridge to get home? Well, that depends on how far away you're coming from. But there is no bridge really close to where we live, no.

16 things you never knew you didn't want to know.

By Michaela

Yes, it’s the same game as below. This time, however, I (Thaddeus) will be sharing completely unnecessary information about myself. So I’ll just get it over with.

1.) I don’t like to talk (write) about myself. I figure that if someone wants to know things about me, then they would ask. Even then, the subject of me is quite an uncomfortable topic. It just feels to egotistical, which, I guess I am not.

2.) Music is my passion. I love it. Couldn’t live without it. It’s hard to really nail it down and say what my favorite type of music is. I just like good music. From drum corps, to the symphony, to simple guitar, to groovy. It makes me happy.

3.) I love to drum. I’m pretty good at it too, or so they say.

4.) I have an awesome family. I know that sounds like a cop-out answer, but it’s true (also cliché). I have extremely adorable and talented kids, and a super-sweet beautiful sexy Swedish babe of a wife, who also happens to be a very kind and caring person. I love you Michaela!

5.) My Swedish is now nearly as good as my English. Which isn’t as amazing as it sounds because I swear my English is getting worse by the day. It’s one thing to sit and write or talk with Michaela, but as soon as I start speaking English with someone else I start to stumble all over my own words. It’s embarrassing…

6.) I am a pacifist. I can’t even imagine becoming violent with someone. I really struggle to understand what would drive anyone to violent actions.

7.) Reading used to be one of my favorite pastimes. Nowadays though, books are few and far between. I used to read all the time but at some point I stopped because I think it started to interfere with my life. I remember several occasions in college where someone would hand me a book and suggest I read it, and I would end up reading all night long and finish the book the next morning. Obviously this wasn’t good for my attendance record, because I would end up sleeping the rest of the day away. It’s an addicting habit.

8.) I hate hassle. If given a choice between several alternatives I will most likely choose the most convenient one. But not necessarily the most convenient for me. Because…

9.) I also hate to be a hassle. I don’t like to impose upon or complicate things for others. Sometimes I can go so far out of my way in order to not be a hassle for someone, that it’s ridiculous.

10.) Stressing out is not something I do. At least not often. I’m usually as cool as a cucumber.

11.) I consider myself a rather optimistic person.

12.) The world fascinates me. In fact the entire Universe fascinates me. It’s just so vast and puzzling. I wish I knew everything. The whole universe is so interesting , I wish there was some way that I could just take it all in and understand…

13.) But I wont. I do like to learn things though. I love to read through scientific articles and see how much we (humans) are learning everyday. I think science is really cool, and although don’t have a very scientific mind, it is one of my interests.

14.) I’m not the real social type. It’s not that I’m anti-social in anyway. I do like people, and I think it’s fun to hang out. But I don’t have a need for being around people all the time.

15.) I am an atheist. A little clarification for those who are curious, because I know you wont ask. I don’t believe in magic, fairy tales, superstitions, the paranormal, UFOs, psychics, reincarnation, gods, pseudo-science or an afterlife. And I hate to say it… But Santa Clause isn’t real. Sorry. I guess you could say I’m somewhat of a skeptic.

16.) It may seem bizarre to some, but I’m a socialist. A social democrat really. Don’t worry, I’m not a communist. Here in Sweden I’m considered more of a moderate.

Well, there you go. 16 unnecessary facts about me. I now have no one left to tag so jag bjuder på den här :) Read more!

TAGGED by Avery
(the prego one :)

Rules: Once you’ve been tagged, you are supposed to write a note with 16 random things, facts, habits, or goals about you. At the end, choose 16 people to be tagged. You have to tag the person who tagged you. If I tagged you, it’s because I want to know more about you.

1. Fact: I have lived in the US for a total of 12.5 years and in Sweden for 14 years. Just about 50/50 in both countries. So do I feel like an American or a Swede? Well, I feel like I'm about a 50/50. This is a huge dilemma for me. When I am in Sweden I miss the States and when I'm in the States I miss Sweden. I don't think this will ever go away for me.

2. I am not the kind of person that likes to beat around the bush. If I have an important issue to talk about I like to get it out in the open, say it, talk about it, get it over with. This way I feel like all the weird tension won't have to ruin the conversation.

3. I love clothes. When I was growing up we could NEVER afford to buy new clothes for us kids. We went to D.I. before every school year and got a "bishops order" and got new school clothes. Woo hoo. I thought it was super duper embarassing, and I usually could never find anything good. I remember buying my very fist pair or "real" new jeans when I was a senior in High school. A pair or silver jeans and Jodie went with me to find them. I had to buy them with my own money! As a result I think I've gotten a little TOO into new clothes now that I'm not dirt poor. I can just itch to get new clothes if I haven't bought anything new for like two weeks. I love H&M and Gina Tricot. I could go shopping for hours and hours, as long as I don't have the kids with me......cause that's a whole other story.

4. Candy and Chocolate make me sick. I LOVE LOVE LOVE to eat both and I crave them all the time. I'm addicted to sugar. But, too much chocolate or candy makes me sick. And when I say too much, I mean it doesn't take a whole lot. I can feel literally sick to my stomache after eating one single candy bar. One would think that this would mean I wouldn't eat too much of it then. But no, not me.....I eat lots of it and as a result feel sick quite often. Sometimes I think I'm allergic to sugar. I tell Thad like every day that I swell up when I eat sweets, but then I just keep eating them anyway. I'm pathetic!

5. I love to tan. I realize that a lot of people enjoy this as well. I feel like I've been deprived of the sun for 6 years now. Borås has the reputation of being the rainiest city in Sweden, and I can say that it's reputation is a true one. It SERIOUSLY rains here just about every day, and if it doesn't it's usually gray. It is soooo depressing. I miss the sun so much and whenever it comes out it just feels so wonderful to have it shine on my skin. I've always liked to tan and get brown during the summer, but now that I haven't had a whole lot of sun during the summers as well, it feels like I need to tan, not to get brown, but rather just to feel the light on my skin. I can't wait to be in Idaho this summer ;)

6. Unlike many (Thaddeus) who enjoys being indoors for long periods of time. I can't stand to be inside for more than one day. I start going CRAZY if I'm indoors too long. It almost feels like my lungs run out of oxygen and I'm gonig to suffocate if I stay in any longer.

7. I love mossy forests. You can imagine how much moss there is in the forest here since it rains ALL the time and as a result the forest floors and trees are COVERED with moss in many areas. They call these kids of forest "troll forests" and it's one of those things that's always been a childhood memory of Sweden for me. I always feel nostalgic when I go out in a mossy forest.

8. I generally really like people. I honestly believe that all people are good; That there is no such thing as a "bad" person. People become bad when they've been raised in a bad way and put in terrible situations. I believe that if you are loved and cared for you will become a loving and caring person.

9. I like to make people laugh. Even if it sometimes means I have to make a fool out of myself. I get a natural high when I can make people happy.

10. I am not shy, not in the least bit!

11. I love my girls more than anything on this planet. I'm sure that wasn't a secret or anything. But I really didn't know that you could love someone as much as this. I tell Elsa all the time that she'll never be able to love me as much as I love her and that when she has her own kids then she'll understand.

12. I am a very social person. I LOVE lots of people getting together and celebrating. It can be a birthday party or just a holiday (like a parade)..etc etc. Anything really. I'm a people person. The more the merrier.

13. Fact: I am 165 cm tall

14. I used to be a very religious person and somhow always feelt like there was something missing or I always felt like I was searching for something...trying to figure something out. But now, I'm an Athiest and I've never felt more at peace and happy about my life then now. Ironic isn't it? Since religion is usually associated with helping people find comfort through life. They often say that without religion life has no meaning, but I feel just the oposite. Without religion I feel like life has all the meaning in the world, since this is all I get. This is it, I feel it is a privilege to excist in the first place, a privilege I don't want to throw away.

15. Goal: I have a goal to live in the NOW. To not stress myself out about things I can't control anyway....(like the afterlife, which I believe doesn't exist) But rather enjoy the things in life I often take for granted that are real, like Thaddeus and my girls. My good health. My friends. My family. That I have a job and can help support us. This planet. My goal is to learn to step back and see what's really important in life, what really makes you HAPPY. Truely happy. Life if short, for many it is far too short. So spend it with the people you love, and show them that you love them, don't just tell them. This is something I'm trying to work on. It will be on my new years resolutions list this year...again. I difinitely have room to grow in this area.

16. I LOVE TO WORK OUT! I love a good work out. It can be just about any form of work out. Swimming, dancing, jogging, yoga, kick boxing, hiking. Whatever. Working out is investing in your future... it really is. We only get one body and I don't want to have all of those aches and pains that you can get so easliy by neglecting your body some good old fashioned excersice. Sooo, do something for your heart, (you know that little thing that keeps you alive) and go for a walk. Show your body some LOVE LOVE LOVE.

K, I dont' think I have 16 blog buddies to tag. But here's everyone on my list that hasn't been tagged yet (that I know of anyway) I guess I'm supposed to tag you back Avery...is that right? Then I tag Thaddeus, Stacie, Ellen, Anja, Terra, Clara, Jodie, Kirsten, Katrina, Kellie, Terrah, and Amy....and If I missed anyone that hasn't already been tagged then I tag you to ;) Read more!

Feelings for me? I hope so....is that supposed to mean "lovey duvy" feelings?

Does the last person you held hands with mean anything to you?

superstition. I'm still concidering not ever doing music again....but somewhere way down there I still just want to play music for a living :(
