Wedding in Sweden

I have been in Sweden for a week. My uncel was getting married and it was one of the most beautiful wedding I ever seen. Ingela was lika an ice-princess in her snow-white dress and my uncle was adorable handsome. I wish mom and dad will get married too soon. :) Before the wedding we had some real nice winter days together with my grand parents in their winter house. Dad became lika a child and was playing tiwht the scoter all day long. Mom, grannies and I were out in the snow walking and just enjoyed every minute. At the wedding I was dancing until 00:30 - wow what I like parties!!

Yeah, probably you say snow machine. I wasn’t sure - some say scoter, some say even snowmobile...

I am feeling quite ok and should not complain too much. You know how it is; difficult to sleep always running to the toilet... I have reach the period I want my body back - it has been for loan enough :) It’s only 4 weeks left now, so soon I will get rid of this enormous belly!

lol...poor girl. Yes, snowmachine or snowmobile. I've never heard it called a scotter. Another first.

Did you say you knew the sex of your new baby? Do you have names chosen?

I am pretty sure it is a boy - while its not confirmed by any midwife or doctor.

If it will be a boy his name will be Markus Carl Vincent Benjamínsson (as he is the son of Benjamin like Anna Björk is Benjaminsdottir - "dottir" means daughter and she is the daughter of Benjamin)

Markus is from Benjamins father and Carl Vincent is from my grandfather.

If it will be a girl we will give her the name Karin Inga. Karin comes from my mother’s name and Inga from Benjamins mother.

In the Scandinavian countries it is very common you take names from relatives while it is only in Iceland you get last name after the father, like the dottir and son. It was before in Sweden during old days but has changed to only family names, like you have.

I like Karin, it's very pretty and I think it's very cool the way you keep the names. *sigh* leave it to us Americans to "normalize" everything. Makes it plain jane.
