PRECIOSAS FOTOS NAVIDEÑAS Y PARECE QUE COMO ACA CON FRIO.

GENIAL!!!
SALUDITOS

I wondered what you were making the in the earlier post when you had the felt leaves cut out and it of course all made sense to me today--what fun! My favorite cookies are sugar cookies with frosting and sprinkles--especially at Christmas. I love Clover the Corgi too, she is almost a twin to our Cardigan. In fact, I think I sent you a picture of her years ago when we got her. Happy Holidays to you and you family!

It *is* nice, isn't it? I got a HUGE kick out of Mimi and her camera.. she's taking after mom. I want to get a camera like that for our 2 grandsons. Enjoy your sparkly, happy, cozy time.
((hugs)), Teresa :-)

I totally agree, I'm sipping mulled cider as I catch up on my favourite blogs.

What a lovely pictures again! Specially the nature ones, allthought I live in Holland, our winters look the same, beautifull
Enjoy your Holidays,
Love Manon

love her print dress and those light up star/snowflake ornaments!

So lovely - you're obviously all having such fun xx

Me too Alicia, it is my favourite month. And I especially love the month of December, even more so now with a toddler in the house, the build up to Christmas is magical!

Absolutely beautiful photos, so cosy, warm, and homely xxx

Thanks again for sharing these pictures of your precious daughter. I have so enjoyed them over the years. She is so grown up and love the long hair! It just makes me smile to see her in your pictures. I wish you a beautiful holiday season to enjoy each precious moment of joy! Merry Christmas and the best to you in 2015.

I, too, laughed out loud at Amelia taking pictures of her sleeping dolly with her toy camera. Clearly this is life Chez Paulson. Merry Christmas to you all.

Really very nice indeed.
Thank you for the reminders.
{can you please give dear Clover affectionate attention from me?}

Estaba esperando leer en el post todos los detalles sobre los vestidos de la niña, recetas de galletas, menu, detalles, etc y que sorpresa fue no tener ningún detalle. Fue sorpresa agradable. Volvi a ver las fotos con mas detalle, saboreandolas mas =)

Hi,
You post such beautiful peaceful pictures! Would love to know where you got your stoneware cups and saucers?
Thanks!
Merry Christmas to you and your family!

Absolutely magical <3

Oh my gosh! How adorable does Meems look in her Santa Lucia outfit? I could cry with the cuteness! I had big plans for December 13th this year and none of them happened, we always seem to be so busy with STUFF! Clover, you too are adorable ( I don't want you to get jealous) Happy December xxxx

PS. What are those chocolate/ gingerbread/ sugar dusted biscuits? They look yummy and please ( if you have time!) Can you share the recipe?

@Nicki - those look a lot like chocolate crinkle cookies. You can find the recipe all over the internet. Try this one:

Oh I laughed at Amelia and her camera. They watch our every move, it's so cute :-D

Awesome! Merry Christmas to you and your family. Thank you again for sharing your beautiful family and home. : )

I struggle with this time of year, but you sure make it look pretty.

Just so lovely... everything!

Would you please share the source for the 3 lighted stars in the window? Amazing shot!

Just had to pipe in and say that it's SO fun to see that you celebrated Santa Lucia! I was a Lucia bride for the first time at 6 months old. My parents put me in a walker and wheeled me into the living room at a friend's house, on a whim. The tradition stuck and we've celebrated every year since, inviting friends to come over before dawn on the 13th and sharing Lucia buns (SO incredibly yummy... I would share my recipe if you wanted) and coffee. There were some important milestones in there--the first year I wore a crown with real, lit candles, and the first year I wore a crown with NO STRINGS under my chin! I wish you many years of joyful Lucia festivities!

love december
