Tonight we celebrate Christmas in Norway (you can read more about some of our traditions here), and the house is all dressed up in old memories and a few new ones.
The paper cone Santa family from years ago when daughter was little
the nut bowl from my grandma’s house; well loved although a little chipped and burred and forever nut-free due to allergies in the family
the happily flag-bombed tree decorated with grandson; it looks perfectly Christmassy when the lights are lit
and our new little forest made last weekend from crepe paper, yarn, paper towels and glue.
Thanks for suggesting putting LED lights under the trees; I love how they look in the dark!
We will be hosting tonight’s Christmas dinner and Christmas Day brunch tomorrow. Our first guests; daughter, grandson and my in-laws, will be arriving at 5pm and it’s time to do the last minute grocery shopping, vacuum the carpet and iron the table cloth. The cloth and I played a little hide and seek yesterday before I realized I had actually put it away in the proper closet. Cheeky table cloth; who could have known!
It was 10 degrees Celsius and raining yesterday, so no more snow, but it doesn’t really matter, does it, at least we can move safely outside. Something else is missing here though. Oh right, I have forgotten the Christmas quilts. Now where did I put them...
My best wishes for the holidays to you all!
