Weekend in Denmark

17 Oct

We had a lovely weekend in Denmark. We originally went there so Christian could participate, along with all the men in his family, in a 12km ‘Man Run’.   A ‘Man Run’ is a race that only allows ‘men’ to compete.  It is not just a typical race.  They have to run through mud, mud filled ponds that come up to the chest, climb over walls and piles of tires and many other obstacles.

There is Christian on the far right. This is obviously before the race

They guys had a lot of fun but I’ve never seen Christian as sore as he was yesterday!

We were supposed to go to Denmark for Christmas this year but as I won’t be able to fly anymore in a few weeks, we decided to have a little Christmas for us this weekend.  We ate the traditional Danish Christmas dinner of roast duck and exchanged presents.  I have been slowly collecting the expensive and beautiful Royal Copenhagen porcelain so I received two serving platters to add to our collection.

And……

Hanne has been busy knitting.  Look what she’s made for Hazel:

This pattern is more than 100 years old!

Hanne also made this sweater but bought the mittens for us when we were baby shopping

Now that we’re back in Switzerland it’s time to get busy on the ‘to do’ list!!!!

    Looks like an amazing weekend for everyone, even Hazel returned home with new sweaters and caps! I love that square serving dish. We will have the Danish rice pudding (with Eric’s addition of rum) again this Christmas in honor of our Danish relatives! The best part of Christmas this year is that we will have a new granddaughter shortly after!!!

    Those sweaters and hats are just gorgeous! Can’t wait to see pictures of her in them and better yet, can’t wait to see her IN PERSON in them 🙂
