Making ‘rosinboller’

photo by J+B=Us.

After a lazy afternoon, the day gained some speed (literally) when we went to do some tobogganing with Lukas (Ruben, Thore and Randi joined in the fun too….).

Today’s new trick was the one going down the steep hill without the toboggan, just sliding down (see the previous post where you can see a little film clip of our two “dare devils” at full speed)… Good fun, but little feet got very tired from climbing up again after sliding down! A cup of hot chocolate always does the trick to get the energy back!

Then, to finish off the afternoon, it was time to do some baking. Rosinboller (raisin buns) with and without raisins was rolled out (some more than others) and we should be self sufficient with rosinboller for a couple of days (they are Yum-Yum and Daddy likes them , so probably not more than two days….).

+4 today here in our part of Norway. Felt like a proper little Norwegian heat wave! Hats and scarfs almost not needed!

Crash bang….

Alex and Daddy was trying to impress the girls in showing off our driving skills. Unfortunately it didn’t go too well… Alex did great job driving the toboggan, but the passenger showed once and for all that he could not multitask and did not concentrate enough on the piste and the result was….. Crash bang!

Top of the world….

Two little monkies, very proud that they managed to get to the top of the Pyramid in Asker all by themselves…

Our holiday to Australia is now just a memory… Norwegian winter weather is now the norm, never mind days at the beach, BBQ’s and the like…. At least we have the photos to look at when we are getting too cold here! (Have a look at the photos here!)

We are now trying to focus on getting all the D’s bi-lingual…. Mummy at evening classes, Kaelyn through nursery and Alex with the help of the rest of us!… √łnsk oss lykke til!

On Saturday Kaelyn’s nursery had an open day in the town center and the oldest kids from the nursery were performing their new song. Kaelyn and Daddy had been practicing the song and Kaelyn did really well and sang along in Norwegian. Daddy is fearing that the tune will stick with him a long time….

Alex is developing a ‘need for speed’ and is now seen tobogganing down all the hills in the area around our house… Woossshhhhh…… Good fun!

From their Norwegian ‘Farfar’ they got these for Xmas. Many trips down the hill has been completed. Mummy and Daddy also have to contribute to the fun sometimes (especially when a bit tired from the playing) by pulling them up the hill again….
