Christmas preparations and busy days - Christmas can come now, more or less.
Some food shopping, a weekend cleaning, decorations and we are ready to celebrate.
I see I have not been blogging for more than a week - days are really flying by.....
A stomach bug got the best of me this week, but I have done some stitchery and read some books, which is good too :-)
I forgot to take photos of some of the Christmas presents I sent out earlier in the week.
I made more Christmas cards too, and they are all sent.
I have to make some gingerbread cookie dough in a minute, so DH and DDs can make them tomorrow. That's their job, as always.
Above you see the 2 other favourite cookies we have for Christmas - Julemanna and Krumkake.
We have a marang tower cake ( kransekake ) in the freezer too.
Traditionally there are to be 7 different kinds of cookies for Christmas. Over the years we have picked our 4 favourites and let the other kinds go.
We fill bowls of fresh fruit and chocolate too, so we will not starve or come down from the sugar high for a long long while ;-)
