our christmas

I don't think I have ever been posting so little throughout a month as this December. It passed so fast, and we have been so busy and quite exhausted too. We did manage to make our Christmas as usual, and it turned out just as cosy, fine and warm as it should be. Frida Viola was excited all of the month, and Molly has taken in all the new great stuff with big enthusiasm. She has just the right age (she is 2 by the end of March), and she has been breaking my heart more than once with her cute, openminded and immediate way to experience and comment on everything.

1. Quilted angel vest my mom made to me when I was little. I remember how much I loved it.
2. Molly in a quiet moment.
3. Gingerbread Lucias for my girls.
4. New beautiful dress from Anïve for the minors.
5. Tivoli at night.
6. December 24.

*Merry Christmas to all of you*

Lucia Day

I can't believe another December week just passed. It seems as if there is some extra event on the schedule every day. Friday was Lucia Day and both girls participated in the procession in their kindergarten. It looks so very adorable, and each year I try to catch the moment with my camera but totally without success. So this year's photos are post-procession, depicting two very tired (and proud) lucia girls wearing my grandmom's old lace dresses.

it's snowing outside, A is out with some friend, the house is very quiet, the girls are lying close to eachother in my bed, and I am thinking of what to bake and do during december. The month has just started but it passes so fast, and we have so much we want to do. The christmas stockings are up, there's a little gift each morning. Last weekend Frida Viola and I baked some gingerbread from my mom's old recipe, and today we opened the boxes with christmas ornaments.

What are you baking in december?

lavu & hay

time flies away at the moment. Molly just spent another week with illness but this weekend she was up and well again, and yesterday we all went to Aarstiderne's Christmas market. It was a clear, cold and beautiful day and we had a good time climbing in the straw bales and warming us with hot drinks in the big lavu tent.
I love days like this - we were all tired when we went home, but at the same time a full day outside with as much light as possible generates some good energy in these dark times.

the harvest market - not so many months ago when it was still warm and late summer.
