Boxing Day...

definition: [a Canadian Holiday the day after Christmas, perfect for spending outside on a hockey rink learning to skate and play hockey.]

Celebrating Christmas

Celebrating Norwegian Christmas a few weeks before...
Eager to play :)!
Sharing a story with Oldemor.

Christmas Eve...
Too tuckered to open presents.  So we waited for...
Christmas morning!
Listening to Daddy read about the birth of Baby Jesus but also asking..."Presents time?"

Adventing & Anticipating

Going to find a Christmas tree on a beautiful Sunday afternoon.

It's hard work...just getting there!
Looking for just the right one.
Here I come...

 What advent looked like for our family this year:

Thinking of my Mom as I hung ornaments on the tree. 
Longing for her to be nearer!

Baking Sour-Cream cookies with my sister.
Making Julekake: Norwegian Christmas bread.
