It seems, and I hope, I can be back to normal. At least I try.

Comments I should have written first hand:
Handmade meatballs – I love also love to do it – roll them to the perfect with the traditional spices, but – we have the same challenge – backs —

Then ( sit down and read with Nordic history in mind):
My mothers Grandpa – Mr Standquist – a professional Tailor from Stockholm around 1870 went to Löiten – the craddle of Norwgian Aquavit and he even bouth shares at the destillery. That did last until, by law it’s were forbidden unless state owned. Then he moved to Drammen (only Scandinavians understand the understatement: Drammen after Löiten).

We do love you both and hope we can meet again

By: A. A. Sun, 30 Dec 2007 16:36:05 +0000 What a lovely Christmas you had, and yet again I am late visiting. We were able to have my mother out of the nursing home for the day, but I don’t know that she will be able to leave there very much longer. We bought her a digital photo frame and I loaded up all our family photos into a slideshow for her. It was a great success, but trying to get the younger generation to provide the photos was the hardest thing!
I love all your traditions for the Christmas meal, and I really do want to try to make Janssons temptations. It sounds so delicious, though I don’t know where I would get the sprats.

Looks like y’all had GREAT Christmas food. I love Swedish Meatballs….but, rarely get the real thing….I usually get it out of a lean cuisine box…horrible, I know.

It can be a pain to make those labor intensive dishes over the holidays..but, those traditions and familiar tastes are part of what make the time so special!

Have a great New Year’s!

By: Melli Melli Sat, 29 Dec 2007 15:19:39 +0000 Ahhhhhhh LC! I looooove your LAUGH LOTION with your Mom! I know it made her Christmas MUCH merrier! I wish I had thought to get some of that for OUR Mom! Next year – I’ll remember! (if the Alzheimer Light doesn’t do me in!) That potatoe concoction looks fabulous — I could probably make a whole MEAL off of just it! ( i don’t do ham… so really, I COULD!)

The Potatoe “Goodie” sounds Perfect! I will have to stop by Renny’s to see what the Store Bought looks like! (lol)
A Very Belated Merry Christmas to you and yours, and a VERY VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU!

By: SwordGirl SwordGirl Fri, 28 Dec 2007 23:45:49 +0000 I really enjoyed reading about all of your traditions! I love your Christmas style! Your Mom looks so sweet and adorable! It is really beautiful what y’all do for her and the sunshine you bring to the folks there. Your posts made me feel very happy. It is so refreshing to see how well you take care of your precious Mom. :-)
