The first cookies of the year were early this month. I made some snowflakes for my Nutcracker snowflake's lunch. I glazed some of them (and made some Totoros, because how could I not?)
Also the Christmas dishtowels from IKEA were adorable this year. They've been used on the table for decoration, too.
Our Lucia celebration was a little more legit this year, with Lucia buns brought over from a neighbor!
Playmobil advent calendar this time. I might try and put it away for future Christmas decorations, it's so cute. Normally, Lego or playmobil advent calendars dissolve into the stash... Kinda kicking myself for not saving this one - ADORABLE.
Favorite tree ever this year (I think I say this most years, but I can't see us topping this one).
I get lost looking at all the ornaments.
I like having a variety of ornaments, as most have stories. It's a story tree.
We pulled out the old train tracks to find the Polar Express.
IKEA's Lucia wrapping paper is adorable. I wish the print were larger, but how could I not buy some?
Off to enjoy the glow with my family.
Merry Christmas to you! I hope it's magical, and remember the real reason.
