I know it was a couple days ago, but the holiday weekend isn’t over quite yet. We had a lovely employee pot luck at the embassy on Wednesday with turkeys donated by the Ambassador and prepared by his chef.

Then on the holiday itself, we took A out of school and spent the afternoon at some friends’ house. We had another lovely potluck meal there with turkey and all the fixings. The kids ran around and played games, and the grown-ups sat around, drank wine and chatted. All while watching the best snowfall we’ve had yet.

It was a really lovely week, and Reykjavik has been turned into a true Winter Wonderland. Have I mentioned how much I love snow??

Everything's better with snow.

This weekend, we had three things on the agenda: school Christmas fair, watching the annual Oslo Christmas-tree lighting and swimming. Sadly, we didn’t make it out of the house in time to do the first two, but Daddy took A to the pool, while I stayed home and broke out some painting supplies!

The rest of the weekend we spent cuddling, watching movies and playing in the snow in the backyard. Not a bad way to pass a holiday weekend. I hope yours was equally relaxing!
