Odin has also learned that if he wants us to do something he can grab our finger and put it on whatever he wants. For example, he often wants us to open cabinets or doors so he will put our fingers on the handles. Sometimes he will grab our pointer finger and lead us across the room to the exact cabinet he wants inside. Hard to say no with such willpower!

We went with our friend Erik to an Innebandy (floorball) game last Friday night. It was a bit loud, so Erik brought some earmuffs for Odin. Celia and I laughed when we saw them and told Erik that there is no way he'll wear them...and then Odin proceeded to wear them and laugh and smile! Ha!

But before we could venture outside, Odin had to learn how to walk in his boots!! So we did a lot of practice inside.

Odin has become a big fan of Papa. He gets very sad in the mornings when Papa leaves for work and when he returns in the evenings there is much rejoicing! And then Odin sticks to Papa like glue! Sometimes even climbing inside his t-shirt.
Picking cranberries in a bog! We had to wait until it got cold enough so that it is easier to pick the cranberries and the freezing changes them to make them taste even better.
October 31 is "Alla helgons dag" here in Sweden (All Saints' Day). It is a day of rememberance for those that have passed away and everyone goes out to the cemetaries and leaves candles on the graves of loved ones. It is quite pretty to see the cemetaries all lit-up with thousands of candles. Halloween has been imported here to some extent and Odin found the Halloween candy. Though we only got 2 trick-or-treaters (or "bus eller godis" in Swedish).
