...lysmesse...

...I'm still opening adventgifts from my sister...no cheating! One each day, and I'm smiling, this is fun! A couple of days ago I got some pearls with a loop, so yesterday, when I needed a pair of earrings, I made some. And now I need the thread for some sewing, so I figured I'd better take a photo;-)
Jeg åpner fremdeles adventsgaver fra søsteren min...ikke noe lureri her! En hver dag, og jeg smiler hver gang, dette er moro! For etpar dager siden fikk jeg noen svarte perler med øye, og igår, da jeg trengte etpar nye øredingser, laget jeg et par. Og nå skal jeg sy noe, og trenger tråden, så jeg tenkte det var best å ta et bilde;-) (og joda, jeg fikk hyssingen også!)
-------------------------------------------
Our DD1 is a confirmee in May-10, and they have several things that they are learning and going through in church prior to the confirmation. Yesterway we went to mass, candlemass or lightmass, I don't know what it's called in English, but all the youth come in dressed in white gowns and with candles. It was beautiful (my camera is lousy in bad lightconditions...so please apologize the crappy photos...)
They came in at the back of the church, and lit their candles in the globe (which is actually made by hubby's father...),and then walked up to the altar.

Datter#1 skal konfirmeres i mai, og de har ganske mye de skal gjennom og lære før den tid. I gårvar det lysmesse...en fin opplevelse...(kameraet mitt tar ikke gode bilder under dårlige lysforhold- eller så er det bare meg...)
de kom inn fra våpenhuset bakerst i kirka, tente lysene sine i globen (som faktisk ble laget av svigerfar...) og gikk opp til alteret.




Enjoy these days...
Ønsker alle noen fine dager...

I love candel-light services... we used to have on on chirstmas eve at my church in scotland, carols by candellight.

I love the idea of the advent gifts, maybe I should do something like that for my wee sister next year, she would love it.

Hei Marit
Hva har skjedd? Jeg har vært her inne massevis av ganger, og det har ikke skjedd noe her inne.....men så ser jeg en haug med nye innlegg her i dag!!!! Masse å lese, iallefall!!
Og her går det unna...med kakebaking, strikking og full fres.
Neste år må du også bli med på Drøbak tur. Det hadde vært gøy å truffet deg, vet du.
Ha en fin uke.

What a great idea the advent gifts are! The candlelight service must have been beautiful. I've been hearing about the terrible weather conditions in Texas. It's scary because since they're not used to it, they have no road crews to take the snow and ice off the roads! Very strange. I'm sure your husband feels right at home with the cold ;).

I haven't checked in on you for a while. What fun posts you've had. I love the socks/slippers you knit for your vet.

Your earrings are so classic looking, and I love the idea of Advent gift too.

I love the header on your blog...
Mr Black looks stunning.
I too love candle light service. It gives an air of Victorian times gone by...

I like the picture. It think it's beautiful - even with the blurriness.

Merry Christmas!

It looks like you are having fun with your advent gifts. That is good. I am pleased your candle-lit service went so well. I'm sure everyone had a wonderful time. :)

Just found your blog and I am enchanted with it! The photos of your coastline make me want to get on a plane and fly right over.

Such lovely Christmas traditions you have. Enjoy!
