Papa goes X-Mas shopping with Grandson and visiting great-grandmother

Grandson Metin Leander and his Mother Ingelin arrived some days ago.  From Germany. Papa picked them up at Oslo Airport in the Northern Seasonal darkness.
December 21-22 is the longest Night here. And December 22 the shortest Day.
M-L 2011-12 Sorting News Papers 
Well, look at the bright sides of life.  Or what Metin Leander? He agreed. Here before we went out shopping. Metin Leander had to check out the advertisments before we went shopping.

Wedensday was special. 3 Generations went to the Family Chiropractor. Who happens to very good and trustes friends as well. Ingeling and his family and kids have met often, both in Norway and abroad. Papa like this fact.
After our treatment, we went for a Lunch. Metin Leander had pancakes, Ingelin Salad, papa as well and some pressed fruit
You want a taste?
You cant’t see it, but it was red berries
We did some X-Mas shopping, which can not be revealed, at this moment;-) Then we went across Oslo to visit papa’s Mother.
Here Ingelin, Metin Leander enters Papas Mother – she was 92 in October.
We stayed there for a while and hope to see Great-Grand Mother on Christmas Eve.
This is the view from Great Grandmothers Window. See the Ski Jump in the Hill? Holmenkollen.
Another view from my Mothers home
Yet another view. In fact the primary School for the Royal Norwegian Family.
Hope to see you all again soon. Here in fact, Metin Leander and Marie Louise watch TV…
More to come…..
From here and there
PS. Papa had wonderful moments

Happy Winter Solstice to you, my friend.

How nice to see that your Mom looks like she's still going strong. Lovely. I bet Metin Leander thought it were exciting to meet her, kids notice when people are really old and use to be full of respect (and sometimes a bit shy) of their age I've noticed.

He has become a big boy now. It's so fun when they start to talk more - and learn a lot.

I hope Santa brings you'll a lot of lovely xmas gifts - You certainly have been nice enough to get many :-))))

Your Metin Leander steals the show, Tor, but seeing him and Ingelin with your mom is a pcture to treasure forever. I'll pretend you were in it, too, to fill in all 4 generations!
