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.
Scandinavians are very into celebrating Christmas and have many traditional food dishes during Christmas. Getting outdoors and cross-country skiing is a must when you celebrate Christmas in Norway.Add a comment

It is that time of year when everyone is rushing around, trying to get ready for the holidays. Christmas, Hanukkah or what ever you celebrate; slow down a little and bake some cookies with your kids. It takes some organizing but it is such a joy for the kids. This year I had her best friends over for decorating a ginger bread house and gingerbread cookies. They had so much fun and so did the mums.
Last Monday we had fun collecting pinecones on our hike and decorating them and making an advent wreath. Advent wreaths are a tradition very common in Europe. In my home country of Norway, we would light a candle and cite a poem by Inger Hagerup. 1. Candle for joy, 2 for hope and joy, 3 for longing, hope and joy. 4 candles lighted for longing, hope, joy and peace – but first and foremost for Peace on earthAdd a comment
