1. Bye bye Nebraska see you soon. 2. Frank fell a sleep in the car to the airport. Woke up and told us that since he already took a nap he was not going to sleep at all on the plane. Great. 3. Me and Frank listening to Viola talk about all the Youtubers she is now subscribing to.  4. Frank was not able to keep his promise from picture no.2

Nebraska in pictures part 8

dosafmily-allcars-shouldlooklikethis

Frank likes cars. When he looks at cars he always states the mood of the car depending on how it´s headlights look. Some looks angry, some happy, some sad. One day when we went shopping Frank noticed this car, with eyelashes. “This car looks very kind” Frank decided.

1. Frank in the search of a playground. 2. So many snack options so little snack time. 3 Viola reading a book from a mini library. In those tiny boxes you can donate books or pick up a new one to read. Such a great idea. 4. My sister house.

Nebraska in pictures part 7

dosfamily-daisythedog

Sweden is so dark during December, sooooo painfully dark.  The Nebraska winter sure is a lot colder but the sun is out all the time. I´m going to miss all that light. In the picture above Viola is taking my sister´s dog Daisy for a walk on Christmas Day. (the candles are still out on the streets as you can see)

 

dosfamily-dress-gap

1. I love dresses with pockets and I found one at GAP´s mega sale that I wore for Christmas. 2. On the 29th I celebrated my 35th birthday with an all-girls-lunch. The staff at the restaurant treated me to a big piece of birthday cake. 3. Every year my sister orders a Swedish cooked ham at a place called Shuster´s. Jens went there to pick it up. You really can´t tell it´s a meat market in there, it looks like an abandoned gas station. But the taste of that ham is lovely. 4. Storm drain.

My oh so lovely niece Samantha Rose (to the left) and her cool friends graduated from school the week before Christmas. They are now done with school. Yay!! According to my mom (her grandma) Sammy is the nicest person on the planet. And I love her to pieces. (And yes we named our shop sammyrose.se after her) . The selfie above is taken by superstar football player Ameer Abdullah @Ameerguapo

Nebraska in pictures part 5 we went to the arcade

dosfamily-rockets

As you´ve noticed I´m trying to catch up on all the blogging that I should have done during our trip here. I know that if I don´t post it now when we are still here it wont be done when I get back. So hang in there – it will be intense =)
The Nebraska weather is know for it´s dramatic changes. During our 3 weeks here we´ve had hard rain, snow and spring-like weather that has let us run around outside in our t shirts. It changes fast. There is a saying that goes something like this: “When in Nebraska – if you don´t like the weather – wait another ten minutes”

1. House hunting with Jens. 2. Spongebob 3. Going to the store for some glögg and ginger bread cookies. (Yes you can get those Swedish christmas treats here) 4. Wildlife in Nebraska.

 

 

It’s never too early to teach your kids about gambling!

Nebraska in Pictures part 4

dosfamily-christmas-toilet

Every morning when the kids has come down the stairs the pile of  Christmas gifts has gotten bigger. They´ve been so sweet and barely even wanted to touch the gifts scared they would figure out what was inside. Viola got what she wanted- a pair of purple (used) Dr. Martens and new headphones (Batman). Frank got Transformers and the foreman Frank (from the Lego movie). Above a picture from a typical morning here- Frank taking his time in the bathroom with the Ipad.

PS: Next year I´m investing in fabric gift bags (Jennifer´s Bag-All) instead of wrapping gifts in paper. Gathering all that waste on Christmas eve made me feel quite silly.  Never again.

1. Look at Jens. He fits right in. 2. Jens and his brother in law Spike took the kids to a indoor desert. The dome looks pretty cool. 3. They also went to an aquarium.  4. Viola and Missan the cat.

There is a full service gas station down the street from where we live. Isn’t that cute?
