LOTS of time right! This was the first time I ever worried about it turning out was ok..I made 3 boxes of it...WOWsa I only make 2 for the big fam at home..I hope it went over it was a little spicy..Luckily I think I only killed one sister.. ;S oh time I will try to make something with fish??

I missed out on Julenissen and the Interesting foods..and all the presents:( but got some much needed rest. I am hopeful I will be feeling great by Friday! By the was $397 kroner to see the Doctor and get the meds.. BOY....we got the food for $300 kroner at the airport ..someone is getting an unfair deal here..the Doctor or the food vendor.. you guess which one.

Here we are here eating the many kinds of foods that are offered.. You do not always get the chance t oask.."what is this" lots of things i have to take on faith..Well.. my darling sister in law gave me a dries jerky like item and said to me (in a form of sign that I am getting used to..) eat I did, cause it looked harmless..thats when I am told by my loving husband that I was eating Reindeer heart that she had tendered herself..YUM..(ok..not really) What to do ..I offered them some Turky jerky..and called it good.(they did not like my stuff

HOHOHO here we are !
After a crazy 50 hours of travel we made it to Storslett! I will tell you if I never see the inside if a greyhound type bus again it would be to soon for me! After being told in Bergen that the plan we were to catch was grounded and that the next plane we could get would be on the 26th..ahhhh we could not do that! So we took a bus trip from Bergen to Oslo..9 hours on the very back seat of the bus with the same dog as the one from "Turner and Hooch" sitting in front of me with it's big old head right on my lap..YUCK!!!!!! In the Oslo airport we paid 300 Norwegian kroner ($) for 2 sandwiches, 2 muffins, 1 brownie, an apple cut up and 3 waters, thats right folks ..$ 60 bucks for some substandard Subway lunch! Well..I am so glad that we made it..None of the kids had any kind of a meltdown, only me who cried when things got hard. Rune did Great at taking care of us:)

Festival of Tree's

Today we all put on our smiles and went to visit "The Festival of Tree's". This is an annual event in our town where people decorate tree's and other people pay a crazy amout for said tree..the money is then given to the charity that is chosen... I have for YEARS wished I could Decorate a tree for this I have had the job of decorating many flower shop trees and my own as well.. let me tell you..

After today I think I wont be doing that til my little ones are big they thought each tree was wonderful and wanted to touch them..

Really they did a great job and no one got into any trouble..well..maybe

Anywho..I really still think i want to give it a try in the future.

Reality of going so far away

As the time is geting closer for us to leave to go on our trip, I am getting more & more excited!
The reality that we really are going and that my kids will get to see what it is like to live in their fathers world is just amazing! BUT, Everytime I think of leaving and being gone so far from home I think of my Mom, and the way she would say to me "Be careful you have all your family with you" makes me wonder..Will I know how to best take care of them and me..Imagine leaving everything you know and going to a place that is always dark and cold and I think it will really through Lilly right off the Also that they will try to talk to people & no one will understand them, I think that will through Katie As for Sam..Well, I just hope being gone so long from school wont cause any more damage than it should. And the work ellement..Please tell me that we will be okay... Faith I know I need more of it. That leaves me.. How will I do?? Will I have only my kids to talk to??? AND rune already told me he wants ALL of us to be able to take 3 NO THANK YOU bites of in Try 3 tastes and if you don;t like it you can say NO THANK YOU I am sure I do not even want to take I do not look forward to some of the food! lol BUT I am sure we will all push on and truge through that ! Just pray we do! lol
