Bits from Orlando & Karl's Bday

On our roadtrip in October we got to visit my family. My mother's aunt, moster Eva and 2 sons, Pete & Johnny and their families.
It means a lot to me that we got to see them. My mother's aunt is over 80 and are still the coolest aunt ever. She reminds me a lot of my grandma (her sis) before she (grandma) got sick. So Moster Eva means the world to me. Moster Eva just got a condo with her friend, Fus. They are both Danes and got married to American soldiers, and have known each other since they were young, so Fus is a part of the family. So we got to see everybody in the family.

Off to a yardsale - my first

Sugar cookies

We decided to make sugar cookies with all our neighbours this weekend. The kids sat at the table for 10-15 min - so all the adults were left to do the decoration of the cookies. The jars are filled with blackcurrant lemonade for the kids. But of course we had Ole Smoky Moonshine for the adults. The apple pie was spot on - it doesn't get any more christmasy then that.

Tadaaa we were all so proud of the result

Baby no.2

This pregnancy sure hasn't been much fun so far (hence the silence on the blog). My first pregnancy wasn't much fun but this one is 10 times worse! With Karl I was tired and had many stomach cramps but this time i am nauseous 24/7, so tired, have no energy and feel like i have the flu. I wish I could be like those pregnant women who have lots of energy, look like a million Bucks in maternity wear and just love being pregnant.....but I'm not!!! I have zero energy and at 7 at night my nausea is so bad that i need to lay in bed. All that being said I can't wait to have another baby and give karl a little brother or sister.

Ole Smoky Moonshine

FINALLY it is here!!! My hubby, brother & cousin started importing Ole Smoky Moonshine to Denmark. It has been a long and bumpy road to get here - but it is here!! All 3 of them are full time and are doing this on the side. They have been working their ass off because they are so passionate about these products. I am so proud of them and I hope it will be a big succes.
Tomorrow they will be announcing where to buy it on their website and facebook
