Christmas preparations

The advent time is busy in our house. I bet it's busy at your place too in December?

We went tree hunting in the woods yesterday, the gifts are all wrapped, we have started decorating the house (in Norway we don't start as early as in other parts of the world)- and we have tasted the aquavite, a must with traditional Norwegian yule meals.

DS11 made some saffran rolls for St Lucia Day (December 13th) and we all made ginger breads at my mum's house last weekend. Here are some photos to prove it :-)

Original sketch by LG for MyscrapbookNook

Most materials for these layouts were found in MyScrapbookNook's awesome December Kit.

So, what about you, are you prepared for the holidays?

Beautiful work Hilde! I especially love the top LO. I didn't know you celebrated St Lucia Day in Norway (I thought it was just Sweden). But we don't have any traditions like that at all, so it's wonderful to see what happens in other parts of the world :) Only four days till Christmas and I'm SO unprepared this year!
