I spent half the night last night going through the 1000+ pictures from my trip to Canada this year. I'm not even kidding, between the four of us (Mom, Mormor, Bebba and Me), we took over 1000 pictures. I have so many great pictures of us that I want to share but that will have to come in small portions and here we go with the first set of pictures.

I just want to say that I had a great trip home and it was just wonderful seeing the family again. I think I can safely say, we all had a really good time - drinking coffee or tea, eating way too much food, suduko and logic problems, cuddling with the puppies and basically just hanging out and getting to know each other.

This is The Chair post. I'm sure my family will understand! The Chair in my parent's kitchen/dining room was well used and I thought it was my dad's chair... I don't think so anymore and these pictures should explain what I mean.

JC and Soren in the chair. And Charlie.

JC in the chair. And Charlie.

My cousin Jake in the chair. And Charlie.

My aunt's husband Greg in the chair. And Charlie.

My mormor in the chair. And Charlie.

Me in the chair. And Charlie.

Greg and my aunt Stritte in the chair. And Charlie.

Mormor in the chair. And Charlie.

My dad in the chair. And Charlie.

You see, I always thought it was my dad's chair but it's actually not. It's CHARLIE'S chair and she was kind enough to let the rest of the family use it while we were there. As long as someone scratched her belly when she was in the mood to cuddle.

For some odd reason, I just love this picture. Mormor and I are having a good talk and dad is taking the opportunity to take a nap - in The Chair. I'm sure Charlie is there too!

I just love this post. I've only been to your folk's place once, and I don't really remember it but, I feel that the photos of the "chair" really give a strong impression of what a warm inviting home it is. How fantastic it must be to go home and see so much of your family. And I agree, that last photo of you has a really special feeling to it.
