Christmas




















Christmas was beautiful... Christmas was full of little boy wonder and two girls who's hearts beat fast when things are fun and exciting! There still so much wonder in their little hearts and they just pass it to little brother who lights us all up! It was a great day full of big happy smiles and squeals of joy that if I close my eyes and remember hard I can still hear it!

Christmas Eve
























very close to being caught up on blogging... just a month out... that's pretty good eh!
It's nice thought because I get to relive things again that happened... such as Christmas...
Here we are cozy on Christmas Eve...
This year baking was the theme... our girls baked and baked and baked some more... We cooked so much Swedish Christmas food that we had leftovers for a week after Christmas... but that's how it is... it just keeps on going and I think it makes it last a little bit longer... because who wants it all to end..
All of these traditions in our new pretty home... filled us all up to the rim with good feels! I'm still getting to know our home even though it's the same... just new again... I still bump into walls that didn't used to be there... with time I'll know it... ha!

Cecilia is 10






Wow TEN... WOW! It happened... she turned ten in December... It felt right... I mean, I may have stared at her for a half hour around 11pm on the night before she turned ten... I just wanted to absorb  nine for a little bit longer... Do you ever feel like that...? like you just can't hang on to your babies any longer... it's like they slip out of your fingers like wet little fish... and then bam it happens... they get older... it's ok... it has to be that way. 
I didn't cry my eyes out like I did two days before our oldest turned ten 2 or so years ago... no, I did that 2 days later when we remembered to watch Cecilia's 10 year video I made her of her years up to now... Mattias and I had a bucket full of tears rolling down our cheeks watching that one... damn sappy music... get's us every time... and it's ok. Our girls always laugh at us and hug us and let us know it's going to be ok. Well whew, what a relief... hahaha...

Lucia







Lucia... always magical... always makes me cry... always such a special Christmas tradition to celebrate Mattias' Swedish culture... It's so important.
