Happy first sunday of advent

Happy first sunday of advent Pam! We have had a cold blustery day here, filled with the joy of the season. I put out my first decorations yesterday and did the Christmas china on my dresser this morning. This afternoon we went for a glorious tramp down by the river and gathered fircones, moss and evergreens to decorate outside. Then my daughter and I made pepperkake and scones to have for tea. This evening we have the advent candles and window stars lit and the children are enjoying a cosy Christmas film. Next weekend my dear husband is whisking me off to Munich to the christkindl market!! St Nicholas will be there! Can you imagine! ( he has spent the last three weeks giving me hints, but I didn't guess at all!) So exciting!

Ps, you asked about the tree topper...we have the angel on the tree indoors and a star on the tree by the front door ;)

Now I have a request from the children for popcorn, so must go. Love Gill.

Christkindl market!!!  Are you serious!  Oh you lucky, lucky girl!!  It will be magic.  I know it will.  What a lovely thoughtful gift.

It sounds as though the holiday is off to a great start for you and your family!  I so enjoyed reading all about your first day of the season.  You make it seem as if i were there with you!

My first batch of pepperkaker is scheduled for Friday - using all my Scandinavian themed cookie cutters and baking cookies for my "borrowed children" to munch on while we decorate gingerbread houses!  I am so glad they are not yet too "old" for such things!!
