One year we celebrated Christmas in Norway, my home country. My parents were scratching their heads when my husband and daughter started to fill balloons with water and put them out on the porch to freeze. We then took cookie cutters on cookie trays and buckets and filled them with water.
Every time we were having dinner or hosting a holiday party last year, we would look at the beautiful ice sculptures glowing in the candlelight. It was so easy, cheap, environmentally friendly, educational and so beautiful.Add a comment
We set up our birdfeeder for the winter last Friday. The girls painted and helped set-up our squirrel proof birdfeeder and we discovered a mourning dove and a cardinal checking it out this Sunday. Hopefully we will have as many birds visiting us this year as we did last. It is quite amazing how much fun and entertaining a birdfeeder can be for the whole family.Add a comment
My daughter decided to have a gingerbread house birthday this year when we almost always have outdoor birthday parties (yes even in the winter). In the past we have had different kinds of outdoor play parties free playing, sledding parties and skating parties.Add a comment
My extended family lives in Florida, so every year we head south for Christmas.I never thought I would enjoy celebrating Christmas in a warm climate. Growing up in Norway it was always a white Christmas.
