God Jul to you

The illness of the week is eye inflammation. Big E just got rid of her one week long fever (still coughing though) when little e started looking odd. This Autumn has been crazy! I have given up on getting any more work done before Christmas, I'm too used to peace and quiet when I create. We have made some Christmas gifts, which I can't show you yet :) I also managed to bake gingerbread with the two E's last Saturday and even put together this Moomin-house, which is still standing! We also brought out the boxes with Christmas decorations and I was reminded of the fact that children are maximalists when it comes to decorating. The longer I have kids, the more drawn I am to clean white spaces myself...

I am wishing you all a relaxing, joyful, white (if at all possible) and jolly Christmas with your loved ones! It has been a joy to spend this year with you! I will now try to "recharge my batteries" and will be back in 2009 for a fresh start! Happy New Year!

Hugs,
Kajsa

God Jul to you and your family! A moomin house - we are the biggest fans of Moomin in Brisbane (Australia) I'm sure! It looks utterly perfect and I can just imagine Moomin mama sitting in the garden whilst the children are plotting an adventure upstairs. Just lovely!

Happy Holidays Kajsa! I am in love with your moomin ginger house!

I've been baking with the kids the past two days and having fun. Just got the kitchen whipped back into shape FINALLY. My gingerbread snowmen came out UGLY this year. No idea why. They taste lovely, but so bloated and bumpy. The kids did a great job covering the "naked" gingerbread with lots and lots of icing and candies..... so no worries!

Happy holidays and take some more snow photos when you can.
