God one and all...

wishing you ALL...especially our 650 + FABULOUS readers...a very MERRY,HEALTHY and FESTIVE Christmas...
God Jul is Danish for Happy Christmas...and I wanted to see it every morning leading up to why not plaster it all over the lawn(in the snow).
This year I let them just have fun...go for it...and they did.
The cousins have been having such fun...I know little miss A and Little Miss J will miss Little miss O SO much when we have to go.
Can you believe it'll be 3 weeks that we're here already!!!
Well, my kind friends...may you enjoy time with family over the next few days....
We Celebrate tomorrow...the Scandi way:
Wake up to fresh coffee(very Strong) and croissants and Danish pastries.
Kids open their stockings...
Walk through the Farm to the Christmas Tree plantation(which was planted 20 years ago)
Choose a tree...(not always and easy bro is very competitive!)
Bring it home...put it up...
Have a drink outside...yes a drink at 10am...(to warm your inners)
Decorate the tree.
Put Goose in BBQ because oven keeps blowing circuit
Decorate some more tree.
Set the table...have a snack for lunch.
Siesta time...
Wake up and help Mum in the kitchen
EAT...Goose, caramelized potatoes, peas, brussels,red cabbage and carrots.
Followed by Rice pudding with almonds..the Scandi way...(Mum hides a whole almond amongst lots of chopped ones...and whoever finds it wins the Almond prize!)
Resort to sit SOFT and open gifts...we only do gifts for the kids now...
and to bed!
I will definitely post pics in the next couple of days...
HUGS & best wishes to you ALL.
