Our guests left us yesterday. There was during the whole Christmas a very nice atmosphere in the house. The
family ´s did spend there free time with cross country skiing, down hill skiing and walking.  We have had all kind of weather types including a storm, that was not nice.

During preparations for one of the meals did Karin cut herself in the thumb. It didn´t stop bleeding so she was forced to visit the first aid from the hospital and now she has 6 stitches in her thumb.

Here pictures taken from the skiing area Mickel Templet and the camping in Särna: You see Städjan.

And then is was time for our traditional Christmas buffet with dishes as pickled herring, graved salmon, smoked salmon,  Christmas ham, leg of lamb, elk, dried reindeer, spare ribs, meatballs, different kind of cheese, chokolate. Our guest were very satisfied

And this morning at 6 am did Pierre and Lena arrive with horse and sledge to bring our guests to the church. Long before the reach us could we here the bells from the horses. Candles light all along the road.
