Month: July, 2009

My new camera arrived

Today just before 10 it got here. I have been waiting for it for 9 weeks and I love it. I barely have the time getting to know thou as I’m alone with three kids. Frustrating? A bit –  but given the circumstances it really does not matter all that much.

The kids and I just spent a few days on Rømø and I ended up taking the kids to the beach to get some silhouette. I haven’t has a chance to edit them, but one I have to show.Silouet1 copy

My kids are just beautiful, if I may say so myself.

Funny after lusting after the new camera for so long, the thought of parting with the other one is not sitting well with me. Iben is nagging me to give it to her, I think we should consider it.

One a day like today

Posting not perfect pictures of my family is what I need. The world seems to unfair these days in so many ways that I find I have an urge to surround myself with happines. Every day I get updates from Canada that make my heart bleed and I find myself asking the question that we will never get the answer to again again. Why???!

Today has been ok. The kids are sweet althou Sønnich that little rascal is testing me a fair bit.

These pictures are snapshots from our lifes and I love them. No perfect portrait will ever beat these, they reflect my kids and make me smile. I’m so overly proud to be the mother of these beautiful indivduals and the wife of the sweetest man ever and I take the time everyday these days to really appreciate them.

Starting with the most flawed picture ever, but the one I love most of them all.

Dreaming a bit

Well the camera is still not here. Liv is now 9 weeks old and I have wished so many times that I could use the video function on the camera and of course, take some beautiful shots of her and Iben and Sønnich. 8 weeks I have waited now and I hate Canon even more now.  I have called stores in Sweden, Germany and Canada and it’s backordered everywhere. I hope they are working night and day on getting this camera back on the shelves.

In the mean time I hope to get a new camerabag . I have a very sturdy and roomy Lowwro (Nova 4 I believe) but it’s too uhandy when chasing kids around. As I use primarily primes, I have to change lenses frequently and that in combination with running kids  – well. So I was looking at the Shootsac but 179 USD is a little steep for my taste. I the remembered lusting over the Tracy Joy Kristine bag and I have decided that I need to get that. She is retiring and won’t be making any more bags. I think this bag is just what I need. It’s easy to get into and will make changing lenses much faster and more hazzle free – and it’s kind of cute.

I decided to take the plunge and then what? Of course for the first time EVER I have problems with Paypal. Typical. SO now I’m crossing my fingers that I can get it once paypal has reconfirmed my adress.

When my camera finally arrives, I would be a shame to wear it around my neck on a crappy looking strap. So soon I will have to shop for a neck strap and I think I will get it from My fynky camera.

This one here I like

Or this one

This color combo has alwasy been a favourite of mine

This may just be the one I think it’s so pretty

I have very little time these days to take pictures. Life is busy and I need to get better at taking some snaps. I watched my kids the other day- all three of them playing on the floor. Well Liv is doing her own thing obviously and the two big ones just like hanging out close to her. I thought of getting up and getting the camera out, but decided against it and just sat there and soaked it all up.

Tomorrow, actually later today now that I look at the time I will post some snapshots from this month. They makes me smile and the remind why life is so wonderful and why those of us who can, have to make the best of every day.

Trip to Rømø

a few days ago we took  a trip to Rømø. The weather has been so hot and humid and sticky that the beach seemed to be the right place to go. We had a great few hours there and the kids enjoyed it immensely. Sønnich got very daring and actually went all the way in the water – right away! Iben being a water rat, was in the water for a long long time. I took some cute and awsome pictures of that, but for obvious reasons they will not be shown here. Grandma if you read here, I would sent them to you if you would like that.

After the beach trip we went back and had dinner at my parents place, Steph and Gregor and Alma showed up too.

Truck toy that Sønnich played with

Bedstemor bought cool waterguns for the kids – they had a blast with them.

Alma eating Ibens nose. Iben adores her little cousin and loves playing with her.

Liv 6 weeks old, sleeping in her daddys arms.

Not related by blood, can you believe it?

Rocks should not be thrown

because when they do, you end up looking like this – with a “butterfly” bandaid in Sønnichs words.

also it requires a trip to the doctor to get glued and patched back together and the trip to the beach that Mor had planned, is cancelled.

Little sister is blissfully unaware and spent the time doing this

and Iben was still in SFO.

This was a short update from an ordinary family of 5 – I’m sure this was not the last time we get one of “those” calls from a nursery, school etc.
