It was also the day where we went to Barnes and Nobles to use the gift cards from my sister. I think it is almost a tradition by now. She sends a large package with all sorts of Danish Christmas goodies - but no longer any presents. And who can blame her! We all know how much it sucks to find presents for teenagers, right? We really like those gift cards, and since we usually go to Barnes and Nobles whenever she visits, it does feel a bit like we have her with us. Today we decided - in her honor - to do a little browsing in the knitting book section. And look what we found:
So many pullovers
And a cute dog
A fishing dress (WTF?????)
Some cute birds
And a very lovely fairytale inspired scarf. Just as rosy and sweet and “everlasting-love” as I prefer
.......And then we actually bought something we liked afterwards.
I got the Michelle Obama biography with Teresa as a shared gift. I have already started and I look forward to reading the rest.
We have also filled out all the forms for Friday mornings where we will visit the Danish Consulate in the Hancock center downtown Chicago to renew the kids’ passports. So. Many. Forms. And documentation. Sigh. But I am glad we will get it over with. I really do not want anything like this to expire as it always means trouble down the line
