Forced family fun…
Maybe that was/is a thing in your house and maybe not, but whoever first made it up: I think you’re brilliant. Thankfully not much “forcing” is necessary when implementing this in the Freed/Heldarskard home. The fact that there are so many “American” things to explore and do with Elisa makes this a little easier as well.
And fall… well it means pumpkin carving! We had a great time yesterday creating these guys who have been affectionately named Stalin and Fred… you can decide who is who 🙂
We were originally going to do the whole pumpkin patch adventure, but spending 4 times the amount of money on a much smaller pumpkin, and about 4 times the amount of travel time to be outside on a very windy cold fall day when we didn’t really have much time anyway, we opted for the “cultural experience” of a first visit to Trader Joes.
Then we headed back home, made some homemade hot chocolate and started carving.
Today we had a great evening. Sundays are officially (yes, officially) pancake day in the Freed/Heldarskard house. We love both American and Faroese pancakes and have decided to enjoy some every week in one form or another. Some families have “Pizza Fridays”; We have “Pancake Sundays”!
Sundays are for pancakes
and ‘forced’ family fun
Let’s do this week!
