Baking for Christmas



This weekend Hanne and I have baked for Christmas.  We did the same last year and we love this tradition.  We have had so fun in the kitchen, and I am already looking forward to next years baking.


Five different kind of Christmas cookies in six hours. 


Rusken was very curious about what was going on.  He hoped something will drop down on the floor.  But Christmas cookies was not his kind of favorite.

When all baking was done our traditional baking dinner.


Dinner with pinnekjøtt (salted and dried rib of mutton) and of course red wine and aquavit.


Second sunday in advent and it is so fun opening my adventcalendar from Hanne and Nancy.


Today adventcalendar gifts was this. A cute Christmas ornament kit from Nancy (her own design).  Love it.  I have to trace this and start sewing it today.  From Hanne Step two in her secret Christmas mystery.  Now I am allowed to start sewing this dresden plates. 


Have to cut more fabric for these dresden petals so I can sew the whole dresden plate together.Step one is ready and wating for step two. Love this mystery project and are looking forward to step three next sunday. 

Saying for today:


A snowman is love and laughter
all rolled up into one.

I am already looking forward to next year's baking too :-)
This is fun in every way. We have not done much sewing though, but there are still a few hours before I drive home, so hopefully we have something to show in the sewing department too, before the is done :-)

Its so nice to make new traditions as our children get older and some things get rearranged. Cookies look wonderful and I am anxious to see the mystery too!
