Die Spammers, Die!

It obviously isn't enough to get hundreds of unsolicited emails a day, now they are trying to hijack my guest book! Just today, I got about 25 spam guest book entries, which I manually removed. I did find a great web site that adds a little extra step to signing the book, but will hopefully cut down on this scourge of mankind that feels it necessary to assault poor innocent ex-pat guest books!

Some anti-Spam websites:

Baby Shower

An update to the site in record time! Yesterday I was given an American style baby shower by my friend Sanne. My sister Karen had sent a bunch of decorations from the U.S., which really added to the experience, but of course made me miss my sisters even more.

My friend Camilla put together a "spec" document (web producers to the end) for the project of Emma's life. It's a scrapbook with major firsts (first birthday, first day of school, etc) and guests picked an event and created a collage. There are pages in the book for actual pictures... it was a really fun activity for a baby shower.

I have a few pictures. I had also bought a disposable camera, but we didn't finish the pictures on it, I'll finish it during our annual Easter lunch which is coming up in just under two weeks.

I just keep getting bigger and bigger...

New Addition

Lars is an uncle! Claus and Anja had a little boy, Frederik, on February 4th. He was 50 cm (19") and weighed 2.8 k (6 lbs). Everyone is doing well.

Personally, I am getting quite anxious for the arrival of Frederik's cousin...
