Creepy man in Keflavík

White station wagon (maybe ford focus) with the license plate number: YH473 was just parked out side out house taking pictures, with a proper camera and tripod, seemingly into our living room and the kids bedroom window. The flashes caught Davíð's attention. He left and we have no idea who it is, but just so you know there is someone seriously creepy out there tonight. (This was at 2 a.m.)

Graduation and plans

With my graduation just around the corner, in May, providing I continue to pass all my classes, I have to start looking to the future.
Now I have to be honest here, a BA in Icelandic as a second language is not going to lead me directly to well paid and fulfilling employment, but it sure has been a good start.
The next step, I am now convinced, is to continue on with my MA and specializing in Librarian and Information studies.
Information found here: https://ugla.hi.is/kennsluskra/index.php?tab=nam&chapter=namsleid&id=100111_20136&kennsluar=2013&lina=5439
So I need a little more time in school.

Feeling famous

Seem to have a little Christmas season broncitous. Davíð booked me a doctors appointment and noticed at the same time that my picture is still on the hss.is (local clinic) web site. Brings back memories, Just me and my little new born Leópold.

those pesky santa's

eve online  helps us to understand the problems with these santas

Davíð in the local paper

The article is not actually about him but it is about the competition that Stefán was in. Davíð was just watching, and Leópold was just being Leópold.
Since I never actually read the local paper I never would have seen this if it had not been for Kasper's teacher pointing it out in class.

Leópold and Guðmundur - First night out partying

Leópold's best friend is named Guðmundur. Guðmundur has some cleft palate problems, something I know nothing about aside form the fact he spends a lot of time in the hospital and going to doctors. The only sign I have that Leópold even notices is that when ever he sees a jar of cream he wants to bring it to Guðmundur to put on his lip.
So there is a special Christmas ball for kids with health issues, and Guðmundur invited his best friend, Leópold. Lucky for Leó!
At this Christmas ball there were stars like íþrótta álfurinn, Páll Óskar, and Algör Sveppi. 
Not to mention a never ending supply of candy.
An evening of dreams come true, as far as my son was concerned.
These little Cinderella's didn't get home until 10 minutes before midnight.
Normally we do not approve of this behaviour from our 4 year old, but the night was exceptional.
Leó and Guðmundur

Guðmundur, Leópold and íþrótta Álfurinn

Comparing muscles 

Tough guys

Serious talk, about things that matter, how to jump really really high 

Did I mention he ate a lot of candy?
