Everyone slept in on Sunday morning and I was first up at 8 am. I immediately started to prepare some Christmas porridge. Soon after Emmy Bo came downstairs and we took out the advent chandelier. Candles, moss and mini toadstools. That is pretty much all you need. And the traditional advent chandelier of course. Later we continued to put up decorations while listening to Christmas carols.
We walked the woods behind the house in the afternoon, my littlest girl, me and Jay, then there was tea and ginger cookie house making time. It was our first attempt on building a ginger cookie house. A store bought set from IKEA had to do. It worked out pretty good, but I think we have to work on the icing a bit. We struggled to get the right consistency and found it really hard to make swirls and pretty decorations. Any tips? Maybe we need at real piping tool? Make a special icing?
This morning Luca and I lit the first advent candle while having breakfast. Everyone else fast asleep as we are the early birds here. 6.30 am we get up and 7.30 am he is off to school. I enjoy those quiet mornings in the dark. Especially now when lights are in the house making it all cozy and warm.
Happy First Advent everyone and may your week be a really good one. Do you have an advent chandelier as well? Or what is your tradition?
