A White Christmas Eve

Soon we’re off to my parents’, to spend a nice Christmas Eve & Day with my family. Can’t wait for the food, sauna and presents! I’ve made a deal with myself to not eat too much, but we’ll see how that goes… Stef made a beautiful lemon poppy seed cake that I can’t wait to taste! Of course there’s going to be traditional Finnish Christmas food as well.

This year we decided to not have a big Christmas tree. Instead I made some garlands out of corn starch dough. They turned out to be really pretty!

We also got two little trees in replacement of a big one and they’re really cute.

I was sure we were going to have a snowless Christmas, but on Monday it started snowing, and now we have 10 cm of the white stuff!

We also did some last minute gift shopping in Tallinn on Monday. The city was so beautiful with all the Christmas lights, snow and the mulled wine at the Christmas market was delicious.

I’m looking outside and it started snowing again. We will see if there’s going to be double the amount of snow by tomorrow – I hope not!

We want to wish the readers of this blog a Merry Christmas! May all your bellies be full and your moods content.
