Aren’t you busy and stressed already?
Baking relaxes me.
I’ve got banana pudding on the docket for ya.
The idea of biting into that bundt kept me from getting some much-needed sleep.
I know, Christmas is over, but it’s still on my mind…
Dinner is usually at our house.
This year, I somehow managed to get out of cooking.
Mom and Shawn did all the hard work. I didn’t even have to make dessert, because my sister made cinnamon-apple cobbler.
She didn’t ask for anything and it was only after some prodding that she mentioned “Hello Teety” was on her wish-list.
Milou seemed to get the idea and kept looking out the window, but, he was probably looking for a skunk instead of Santa!
Shawn woke up extra early the next morning to get started on making his mom’s delicious fruit buns.
Then, those beautiful blue eyes finally opened.
What did Santa bring?!
Of all the dolls & toys, it looks like those cozy li’l boots were the winner.
Then, we were off to Auntie’s house!
Swedish straw goats were a very cute Ikea find!
This Christmas legend out-dates Santa.
Swedish children still don goat masks and exchange gifts.
We’re thinking of getting a big Elmo Santa for next year.
I know, tacky tacky, but Daisy would love it!
I risked my life to get an action shot of this trademark scene and fell into the bushes!
Hope you appreciate it, too. 🙂
After stuffing our faces with warm, crunchy scones and Christmas-spiced fruit buns,
we dragged our feet into the living room and watched as the kids yelled and jumped, wrapping paper shreds flying through the air. We got body-slammed with hugs when they saw their presents and nothing could be better.
Daisy made sure the babies were snugged up and shooshed to sleep.
